Renderings have been revealed for Minrav Development’s seven-story condominium building currently under construction at 244 East 52nd Street, in Midtown East.

The property is located between Second Avenue and Third Avenue, and will eventually comprise 26,000 square feet, including one cellar level. The development will contain 15 units, what appears to be a roof-level terrace, a 30-foot-long rear yard, and unspecified amenities.

Permits were filed in January 2019 to demolish an existing 9,200-square-foot education facility originally built in 1910. Construction for the new development is expected to wrap by 2021.

  1. You are building a large collection of development texts, easy to navigate, categorized, and without advertising. Some words can hurt sensibilities, I have to sorry for my attention into comments. But now I feel the need to have you as a reporter, rendering will explain on the edge of the structure. An interesting thread made by its project, I would like to love it. (Thanks to YIMBY)

    • Please point me for stinking up the place: I was thinking exactly the same thing David! (You’re welcome New York).

    It’s a beautiful design but Google street view shows the historic building is also worthy of saving. The architect could have dealt with the raised first floor and the developer could have kept the facade at least. Needlessly destroying our historic city just for more profit is shortsighted and only serves a single property developer.

  3. It has an enduring quality to it. I don’t see much value in the existing structure.

    • The existing structure is very nice, what are you talking about? The biggest loss in Manhattan has been public spaces and facilities – buildings designed for something other than retail or residential use. Places people can go outside and interact with others. The loss of these spaces is choking the social life of Manhattan.

  4. Work has started here, they are starting the foundation.
