Developer The Engel Burman Group returns this week with a newly revealed rendering of 1622 York Avenue in Yorkville, Manhattan. The forthcoming assisted living development will eventually top out at 14 stories and will comprise just under 102,000 square feet.
Designed by H2M Architects + Engineers, the new property will contain 132 residences, communal spaces on each floor, a fitness room, beauty salon, and a 14th floor dining room, in addition to 79,280 square feet of community facilities.
The design features a relatively understated façade featuring a mix of red brick and what appears to be limestone. The top of the structure, however, will feature an unusual take on a mansard roof that is not exactly reminiscent of anything else in the neighborhood. Also notable are the double-height arched windows on the ground floor and dormer windows on the roof.
Engel Burman Group acquired the site for $46.5 million in July 2018 and filed demolition permits for the six existing buildings in November. An estimated date of completion has not been announced.
