Permits have been filed for a 22-story residential building at 300 East 83rd Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Located at the intersection of East 83rd Street and Second Avenue, the corner lot is three blocks south of the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the Q train. Erik Lalezarian of E83 Properties LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 235-foot-tall development will yield 84,266 square feet designated for residential space. The building will have 70 residences, most likely condos based on the average unit scope of 1,203 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar and ground-floor retail space, but no accessory parking.

Luigi Russo of SLCE Architects is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits were filed in June 2020 for the five-story mixed-use building on the site. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. SO SAD
    Another low rise century old building to be demolished FOR WHAT?
    Another piece of nyc history down the drain for an ugly out of context glass box

  2. why can’t greedy developers reuse the existing 100 year old building as a base and incorporate it in the design instead of demolishing this lovely building?
    SO SAD

    • Agree that the building currently in this location is beautiful, but if more housing isn’t built, the cost to live in Manhattan will only go higher and the opportunity for more people to live in Manhattan is constrained. So how does that help?

      • It’s not an “either/or” choice. We can do both, preserve and increase the number of housing units in the city. There are plenty of buildings not worth preserving that could be redeveloped. Increasing height/density needs to be done at the margins in most neighborhoods rather than rezoning a few places that leads a jarring and disruptive influx of massive structures. Focus taller development near transit and on busy, wider streets while establishing a system where side street homeowners of smaller houses, one to four families, for example, can transfer their development rights to a nearby avenue site so that we increase neighborhood density while not throwing larger single-lot buildings that are out of scale. Scatter multi-lot six to eight-story buildings in these areas. Look around the city and see where apartment buildings co-exist with smaller houses, often built under the 1916 zoning, and try to replicate that in similar neighborhoods. We do some of that but not enough. This could create tens of thousands of new housing units.

    • So sad to see this beautiful brick building that fits the streetscape, be replaced by another “generic” tower with no character or life as the existing one!

    • We need more transferrable development rights in residential neighborhoods. Preserve more of these beautiful tenements and allow slightly taller new structures to replace some of the numerous unremarkable structures or using these older structures as the base.

  3. more classic Manhattan gone
