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.

      “Moisturizer views”??? David, I think your bot programmer needs to check your code. You were doing better and starting to make some sense, but you’re clearly starting to go off the rails.

    Wow! Those prefab wall panels are amazing. Stern will leave a remarkable legacy of buildings for NYC. Would love to see some new Art Deco inspired projects too. The Depression unfortunately limited that most wonderful design style.

  3. I can’t wait to see those panels enclose this structure! The attention to detail is just unparalleled. We already know that this will be another masterpiece by the legendary RAMSA.

  4. One of RAMSA’s more interesting efforts.
    I know, I know, we’re talking about G-D here, 🙂

  5. Amazing building, anxious to see completed and in person on next visit… plan to track down all of Mr. Sterns projects. He really is this generations Candella!

    After seeing these brillant and detailed designs of Robert Stern, how can Gene Kaufmann dare to call himself an “architect”?!

    Polar opposites…

  6. This may be RAMSA’s best project yet! Masterful

  7. This will be a real stunner.

  8. RAMS is single-handedly saving this generation of architecture from a pit of obscure banality.

  9. Please send me an application for a two-bedroom affordable apartment by email.
    Thank you

  10. Single and need an affordable studio apartment.

    Thank you.

  12. I live across the street from this “skyscraper.” It has already blocked all our sunlight. We will now live in perpetual shadow. Just so a few more hedge fund managers can tower over the rest of us — and Miki Naftali can become even richer. That’s the end result of your “beautiful” building.
