Construction is closing in on the final floors of 300 East 83rd Street, a 22-story residential building in the Yorkville section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Lalezarian Properties, the 235-foot-tall structure will span 93,682 square feet and yield 70 condominium units with an average scope of 1,305 square feet, as well as cellar level and ground-floor retail space. A portion of the homes will be reserved for affordable housing. Hudson 37 LLC is the general contractor for the project, which is alternately addressed as 1594-1598 Second Avenue and located at the corner of East 83rd Street and Second Avenue.
Significant progress has occurred since our last update in May, when the reinforced concrete superstructure had just surpassed the roof levels of its low-rise neighbors. Crews are now approaching the crown, which features stepped setbacks leading to a prominent bulkhead on the western edge of the building. Preparation for the façade has also begun on the lower levels, with metal frame studs and blue waterproof membranes in place on the third and fourth stories. The main rendering depicts the final exterior treatment composed of light-hued stone paneling and white spandrels framing a grid of floor-to-ceiling windows. Based on the pace of progress, the façade could begin installation sometime next month.
The rear eastern elevation features a stack of balconies, and setbacks on the northern and western profiles will make room for private terraces for select units.
300 East 83rd Street is among a host of new residential towers popping up across Yorkville, including SLCE’s 250 East 83rd Street across Second Avenue and RAMSA’s 200 East 83rd Street along Third Avenue.
In recent news, the developer re-filed plans for the project to increase the height of the 22nd level for additional mechanical needs. Additional changes include the reduction of the ground-floor commercial space by 126 square feet and a subtraction of more than 2,000 square feet of residential space.
The nearest subway is the Q train at the 86th Street station directly across the street.
300 East 83rd Street’s anticipated completion is slated for the fall of 2024, as noted on site.
