Exterior work is nearing completion at 180 East 88th Street, the tallest structure on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. DDG is the designer and principal developer of the 31-story residential skyscraper, for which HTO Architects is serving as the architect of record and Global Holdings Management is also developing. Petersen Tegl, a Denmark-based firm, is in charge of putting together the thin Kolumba masonry bricks in the gray-colored façade.
Construction has topped out at 532 West 20th Street in Chelsea. The 11-story residential development rose quickly since YIMBY’s last update in August 2019, when only the first few floors were built. Located between Tenth Avenue and Eleventh Avenue, the project is designed by design-build firm DDG, which purchased the plot for $24.25 million in 2014. The building will contain 27,019 square feet of residential space divided into nine apartments, averaging 3,000 square feet apiece.
Construction is wrapping up at 100 Franklin Street in Tribeca, where the 200-foot-long stretch of hand-laid Petersen Tegl bricks that clad the building’s eastern profile is now complete. Designed, developed and built by DDG, the residential structure is located in the Tribeca East Historic District and consists of conjoined triangular-shaped buildings on a narrow property yielding a total of ten full-floor residences. Douglas Elliman is in charge of sales, which launched in April with units ranging from 1,427 square feet to 3,673 square feet.
The brick and architecturally finished concrete façade of 180 East 88th Street is getting very close to completion. The 31-story reinforced concrete skyscraper holds the title of the tallest structure on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. The residential project is designed by DDG, with HTO Architects serving as the architect of record. Petersen Tegl, a Denmark-based firm, is in charge of the Kolumba masonry brick façade. The narrow property will yield 100,242 square feet of residential space, averaging 2,088 square feet per unit. There will also be 10,255 square feet of residential amenities and 1,093 square feet of communal facilities on the lower part of the superstructure.
Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 532 West 20th Street, an 11-story condominium in Chelsea. A large amount of formwork is visible on the main façade as crews build out the walls of the fourth and fifth floors. Located between Tenth Avenue and Eleventh Avenue, the structure is being constructed by design-build firm DDG, which purchased the plot for $24.25 million in 2014. The building will contain 27,019 square feet of residential space divided into nine apartments, for an average of 3,000 square feet apiece. The site is a short walk from the High Line, the waterfront, and Chelsea Piers.
