New construction permits have been filed for a 17-story residential project at 323 East 79th Street, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The site is seven blocks north of the 72nd Street subway station, and seven blocks south of the 86th Street subway station, both serviced by the Q train. Spruce Capital Partners is listed as behind the applications. The firm is also responsible for the condo development at 151 78th Street in the same neighborhood, which features 14 full-floor units and three penthouses.
The 214-foot tall development at 323 East 79th Street will yield 35,045 square feet, with 31,219 square feet dedicated to residential use. Interiors will house 15 apartments, most likely condominiums, as some units will take up a full floor or two, averaging over 2,000 square feet each. The concrete-based structure will also have a rear yard 30 feet long.
Jeremy Singer of Woods Bagot Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits have not been filed yet for the 1930’s office and commercial building currently on the lot. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
