Construction is rising on 200 East 83rd Street, a 449-foot-tall residential tower from Robert A.M. Stern on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Developed by Naftali Group and Rockefeller Group, the 243,128-square-foot development reinforced concrete structure will rise to a height of 35 stories and house 86 units spread over 205,877 square feet, for an average of 2,393 square feet apiece. SLCE Architects is the architect of record for the project, which is located at the corner of Third Avenue and East 83rd Street.
Recent photos show the superstructure steadily climbing above the streets as the safety cocoon assembly follows the vertical progress with every completed floor. Work is past the multi-story podium and well above the adjacent neighboring low-rise buildings.
It also appears that several ground-floor panels have already been installed and feature a warm-colored stone surface with numerous decorative motifs carved around the windows and doorways. More façade pieces were seen resting on flatbeds to the south along Third Avenue stretching for a couple of streets. The one that we were able to get close to has windows with fluted stone textures that resemble shutters, alongside a deep window sill and an adjoining apron. A symmetrical floral pattern with four petals within a square frame can be seen in the center line on the top of one of the window voids, while a protruding pair of cylindrical stone lips frame the sides.
YIMBY previously showed a rendering of 200 East 83rd Street featuring numerous setbacks for private terraces, and two sets of loggias near the midway point just below the stepped crown. The property will also include 3,033 square feet of ground-floor retail with frontage on both Third Avenue and East 83rd Street, and 26 enclosed parking spaces as well as additional amenities yet to be disclosed.
The construction poster lists the completion date for 200 East 83rd Street for the winter of 2022.
