Upper East Side
Exterior work is progressing steadily at 1059 Third Avenue, a 481-foot-tall mixed-use tower on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by Manuel Glas Architects and developed by Real Estate Inverlad and Third Palm Capital, the slender 30-story superstructure is located between 62nd Street and 63rd Street and will yield a total of 127,000 square feet of newly built space. Inside will be 38 condominiums spread across 103,900 square feet, averaging around 2,740 square feet apiece.
Construction is getting closer to completion at 180 East 88th Street, the tallest structure on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. Designed and developed by DDG with HTO Architects as the architect of record, the 31-story building is located between East 87th Street and East 88th Street. Global Holdings Management is also part of the project’s development team.
