Construction has topped out on 310 East 86th Street, a 21-story residential tower in the Yorkville section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by ODA Architecture and developed by IGI-USA, the 145,000-square-foot building will yield 69 condominiums and an undisclosed amount of commercial space. Hunter Roberts Construction Group is the general contractor for the property, which is located between Second and Third Avenues, directly across from the 86th Street station, servicing the Q train.
Recent photos show the steady progress that has occurred since our last update in late May, when the reinforced concrete superstructure had recently passed the halfway mark. The building has now reached its pinnacle and work has shifted to the installation of the geometric façade panels, which are now nearing the midpoint of the main northern elevation facing East 86th Street.
The panels feature an inward stepping pattern that creates plays of light and shadow and adds texture to the exterior. Horizontal members break up the grid and will complement the setbacks on the upper half of 310 East 86th Street. Façade installation should begin on the other three sides of the tower later this year.
The eastern elevation of 310 East 86th Street features a shallow cantilever, while the opposite western profile rises flat against the abutting low-rise neighbor.
No interior renderings of the residences have been spotted yet, but YIMBY last announced that amenities will include a music room, a laundry room, a children’s playroom, and a teen-oriented communal lounge.
A completion date of December 1, 2023 is posted on the construction board.
