Beckford House, located at 301 East 81st Street, and Beckford Tower at 301 East 80th Street, are two new developments in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Yorkville. Designed by Studio Sofield and SLCE Architects and developed by Icon Realty Management, both structures are topped out and their exterior brick and stone curtain walls are rising.
A year ago, the New York Post reported that Icon Realty had begun demolishing several tenements on Second Avenue between East 80th and 81st streets. Now, the developer has filed new building applications for a 30-story tower on the corner site, which will be known as 301 East 80th Street.
