Construction on 310 East 86th Street stands topped out as a 21-story residential tower over the Upper East Side neighborhood of Yorkville. The ground-up project is designed by ODA Architecture with IGI-USA in charge of developing the 145,000-square-foot building. There will be 69 condominiums along with an undisclosed amount of commercial space. Hunter Roberts Construction Group is serving as the general contractor for the mixed-use Manhattan property, which is located between First and Second Avenues and sits directly across from the 86th Street station, servicing the Q train along Second Avenue.
A lot has changed and progressed since YIMBY’s previous update in the spring with the upper floors of the reinforced concrete superstructure having been formed and completed, while the light-colored facade is gradually being installed across the lower half of the main northern elevation facing East 86th Street. Shadows are cast along the tops and sides of the panels that are deeply stepped inwards toward the recessed floor-to-ceiling windows. Horizontal members break up the grid and will complement the setbacks on the upper half of 310 East 86th Street. The other three sides of the tower should see the curtain wall go up later this year.
Meanwhile the cantilevering sections of 310 East 86th Street are found on the eastern side, while the opposite western profile is flat against the abutting low-rise neighbor.
No interior renderings of the residences have been spotted yet, but YIMBY last announced the upcoming amenities that 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.
