The foundations are taking shape at 148 East 78th Street on the Upper East Side, where a 205-foot-tall residential building is set to rise. Located at the corner of East 78th Street and Lexington Avenue, the structure is designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Midwood Management Corp. Construction workers are currently forming the reinforced concrete perimeter walls for the condominium project, which will yield 26 residences averaging 2,600 square feet each.
148 East 78th Street
The Upper East Side is about to see another new condominium development with super-sized units, this time at 148 East 78th Street, which will yield a 15-story building rising 205 feet to its rooftop. The generously-sized ceilings will be matched by the floorplans for the 26 condos, which will average 2,600 square feet apiece, with 68,293 square feet of residential space in total. There will also be 3,739 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Ismael Leyva Architects is listed as the architect of record, and John Usdan of Midwood Management Corp. is the developer. Demolition permits for two existing buildings were filed earlier this month.
