Construction has topped out on 250 East 83rd Street, a 31-story residential building 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_id, 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.
Façade installation has continued to enclose the building since our last update in late June, when the cladding only covered the multi-story podium. Recent photographs show the light-colored precast paneling covering nearly half of the tower and the floor-to-ceiling windows beginning to be put in place on the podium. Scaffolding has been assembled on the southern side of the crown, providing access to the upper stories from the construction hoist below. The crane remains standing on the northern elevation, but should be dismantled soon.
The main rendering depicts 250 East 83rd Street’s fenestration divided into two- to nine-story rectangular groups on the eastern and northern elevations. The southern and western faces will share the same architectural appearance, which includes the use of dark mullions and spandrels that provide a contrast in color from the outer walls of the building.
250 East 83rd Street is located diagonally across from the entrance to the 86th Street station, serviced by the Q train. Further west along Lexington Avenue are the 4, 5, and 6 trains.
250 East 83rd Street is expected to be completed in May 2025, as noted on site.
