Construction is rising on 250 East 83rd Street, a 31-story residential tower in the Yorkville section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by The Torkian Group, the 370-foot-tall structure will yield 128 residential units with interiors by Lemay+Escobar, as well as ground-floor retail space. Cauldwell Wingate Company is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Second Avenue and East 83rd Street.
Excavation was still ongoing at the time of our last update in late November. Construction has proceeded swiftly since then and the structure now stands five stories high. Based on the rapid pace of progress, crews will likely surpass the seven-story podium and begin work on the tower before the start of spring.
The rendering in the main photo is oriented looking southwest and depicts the tower enclosed in a light-hued stone façade framing a grid of floor-to-ceiling windows with dark mullions and earth-toned spandrels. The setbacks and cutout corners on the upper and lower levels will likely be topped with private terraces for a select number of residences. The below interior renderings illustrate the main lobby, units, and some of the amenity spaces, which include a theater, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and an outdoor rooftop lounge and terrace.
The site is located diagonally across from the entrance to the Q train at the 86th Street station. Further west along Lexington Avenue are the 4, 5, and 6 trains.
250-252 East 83rd Street is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2024.
