The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is reviewing proposals from J.L. Ramirez Architect to transform a 12,500-square-foot apartment building into a single-family home. Formerly known as the James P. Warburg Mansion, the historic property is located at 34 East 70th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Upper East Side
Exterior work at 40 East End Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side is now complete, and YIMBY has a look at a new set of photos of the project thanks to developer Lightstone Group. The 100,000-square-foot, 28-unit residential building rises on the northern corner of East 81st Street and East End Avenue. The complex features two- to five-bedroom apartments, a maisonette, and a duplex penthouse with a private rooftop terrace. Pricing for the residences ranges from $3 million to $25 million. Deborah Berke Partners collaborated with Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects on the design of the 210-foot-tall, 20-story project, and Corcoran Sunshine is responsible for sales and marketing.
Trader Joe’s, one of the New York City’s most beloved independent grocery chains, could soon open up shop in a recently vacated landmarked venue near the Manhattan onramp of the Queensboro Bridge at 405 East 59th Street. The application is currently under review by the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) which is expected to provide feedback on proposed upgrades to the building’s facçade and historic interior spaces.
Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 1230 Madison Avenue, a Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed residential building on the Upper East Side. The reinforced concrete superstructure is starting to reach the height of its abutting low-rise neighbors and will eventually top out at 208 feet tall. Located in Carnegie Hill on the same block as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the 20-story project is being developed by Real Estate Equities Corporation (R.E.E.C.) with SLCE Architects as the architect of record.
The curtain wall is steadily rising up 1059 Third Avenue, a 481-foot-tall mixed-use tower on the Upper East Side. Designed by Manuel Glas Architects and developed by Real Estate Inverlad and Third Palm Capital, the slender reinforced concrete superstructure topped out at 30 stories and will yield a total of 127,000 square feet. The development will contain 38 condominiums spread across 103,900 square feet, averaging around 2,740 square feet apiece.
