Rising now at 180 East 88th Street is the soon-to-be tallest tower on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. The 31-story residential building is being developed and designed by DDG, with aesthetic inspiration derived from renowned Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi. The structure has reached its 28th floor, leaving three stories remaining before topping-out occurs.
The prime blocks of the Upper East Side seldom see new developments, but renderings have now been revealed for the H.T.O. Architect-designed 27 East 79th Street. The project is the first new building to rise on its block in nearly forty years. The architect teamed up with the Parisian firm, Cabinet Albero Pinto, to create a structure fit for the neighborhood.
Since it stood two stories in height in April, the eight-story, 143-unit mixed-use building under development at 504 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Clinton Hill, has topped out. The latest photo comes via prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the project grew slightly compared to filings retrieved for YIMBY’s April update. The structure now encompasses 125,585 square feet and has gained two units (up from 141). The ground floor will host 20,304 square feet of retail space, while the floors above will contain rental apartments, averaging 736 square feet apiece. Twenty-eight of them will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Silverstone Property Group and Madison Capital Realty are the developers. HTO Architects is behind the architecture and completion is scheduled for 2017.
CW Realty is planning to develop a 33-story condominium tower at 1361-1363 First Avenue, located on the corner of East 73rd Street on the Upper East Side. The project is expected to measure roughly 120,000 square feet and is being designed by HTO Architects, the New York Post reported. The number of planned apartments wasn’t disclosed, and it’s unclear whether there will be commercial space included. The new building will cantilever over the adjacent four-story tenement at 1365 First Avenue. CW Realty acquired the four-story mixed-use building at 1361 First Avenue earlier this year for $9.4 million and is in contract to purchase the four-story tenement at 1363 First Avenue. The latter sale is expected to close next year, and existing commercial and residential tenants in both properties are already in the process of relocating. The developer will also transfer air rights to the assemblage from other properties on the block. Demolition permits haven’t yet been filed.
Back in November of 2015, a rendering was revealed of the planned eight-story, 32-unit mixed-use building at 109 East 115th Street, in East Harlem. Now, the structure is nearly topped out, Harlem+Bespoke reports. The structure encompasses 35,493 square feet, and will include a 5,392-square-foot nonprofit community facility on the ground floor. The residential units, which begin on the second floor, should average 699 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include a storage space for 16 bikes, a fitness center, and an outdoor terrace on the second floor. ACNY Developers Inc. is developing the project, while H. Thomas O’Hara’s Midtown-based HTO Architect is the architect of record. Completion is expected later this year.
