Exterior work is nearing completion on The Harper, a 21-story residential building at 310 East 86th Street in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side. Designed by ODA Architecture and developed by IGI-USA, the 145,000-square-foot structure will yield 63 condominium units in two- to four-bedroom layouts with prices starting at $2.1 million, as well as ground-floor retail space. Hunter Roberts Construction Group is the general contractor and CORE is handling sales and marketing for the property, which is located between First and Second Avenues.
The façade of floor-to-ceiling windows and chamfered limestone framing was just beginning to make its way up the main northern elevation at the time of our last update in July 2022. Recent photos show this assembly enclosing the entire structure up to its parapet, with only some minor work left to conclude on the ground floor and around the cantilevering volumes on the eastern face.
The upper levels incorporate several stepped setbacks that will be topped with private terraces. A landscaped communal roof terrace will sit atop the building and provide residents with panoramic views of the surrounding neighborhood and the Midtown skyline.
The cantilevering section on the eastern side features a simpler façade paneling.
The below aerial shot shows the simplified fenestration on the rear southern elevation.
Renderings show the ground-floor commercial frontage flanking a central main entrance, which will be topped with a large metal canopy.
Residential amenities at The Harper will include a 24-hour attended lobby, a live-in super, a fully equipped fitness center, a children’s art room, a play room, a game lounge, and a music center. The building is located directly adjacent to the Q train at the 86th Street station along Second Avenue.
A completion date of December 1, 2023 is posted on the construction board.
