Construction on VU, aka 368 Third Avenue, continues to move forward as the new condominium development gets ready to launch sales in the coming months. It is the tallest new residential building in the vicinity at 410-feet-tall and features a 36-story reinforced concrete structure. VU is located in the Manhattan neighborhood of Kips Bay and provides unobstructed views of Midtown, Lower Manhattan, and the East River. The interiors and amenities are designed by Paris Forino and SLCE is the architect. Developed by Minrav Development, the 145,000-square-foot superstructure will yield 100 apartments which will include studios to three-bedrooms. YIMBY recently got to check out the building.

The 388-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure has risen rapidly since mid-June, when excavation was still underway. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Minrav Development, the 35-story, 145,000-square-foot building will house 100 apartments for an average of 1,100 square feet apiece.
A lot of progress has been made on 368 Third Avenue in Kips Bay since YIMBY’s last visit in mid-June, when excavation was still ongoing for the 35-story mixed-use residential tower. Today, the reinforced concrete structure is approaching the halfway mark and is gaining increasing prominence over the surrounding neighborhood. The 388-foot-tall, 145,000-square-foot structure is located between East 26th Street and East 27th Street and is being designed by SLCE Architects. Minrav Development purchased the site from Continental Ventures and Itzhaki Acquisitions for $64 million. The development will yield 100 apartments, averaging around 1,110 square feet apiece.
