Karl Fisher‘s most recent design has officially topped off in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Vitre, located at 302 East 96th Street stands 21 stories tall and will eventually contain 48 condominium residences. When fully complete, the structure will comprise a total 75,995 square feet including 2,185 square feet of ground floor retail area. The latest update comes from Tectonic.
Back in 2014, B+B Capital and Mink Development acquired, for $19 million, the five-story, five-rental-unit building at 39 East 72nd Street, located in the Upper East Side Historic District, with plans to restore it to its former glory as a single-family townhouse. The developers have secured $30 million in financing for the project, which now is expected to include three condominiums, according to Real Estate Weekly. The 13,036-square-foot structure will be expanded by two stories, increasing the property’s square-footage to 18,412 square feet. Filings indicate the residential units will all be triplexes, averaging an enormous 5,256 square feet apiece. The Landmarks Preservation Commission reportedly approved the project back in 2014. CetraRuddy is the design architect.
In May, YIMBY reported on filings for a 21-story, 48-unit condominium building at 302 East 96th Street, on the northern edge of the Upper East Side. Now Curbed has a rendering of the mixed-use project, which is being developed by Wonder Works Construction, Fimida Enterprises and Mink Development. Amended in June, filings now show the building measuring 75,395 square feet, and a 2,185 square-foot retail portion is planned. Units will average 1,525 square feet, and Karl Fischer is designing. Demolition filings for the existing three-story parking structure were filed in April.
