Exterior work is continuing to progress 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_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.
The reinforced concrete superstructure has been almost fully enclosed in its façade of textured stone panels since our last update in late June, when only the podium levels had received their cladding. Installation of the grid of floor-to-ceiling windows isn’t far behind. Recent photos show the look of the completed sections of the façade, which features a fluted design on the columns that emphasizes the structure’s verticality. The midpoint of the tower incorporates rectangular expanses of glass lined with dark mullions on all four sides, adding variety to the fenestration. The construction crane is still standing on the northern profile, but should be dismantled in the coming weeks.
The below aerial shot of the southern elevation offers a better view of the crown and its numerous setbacks, which will be topped with terraces. The water towers can be seen within the uppermost levels 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.
