International gallerist Salon 94 has partnered with Rafael Viñoly Architects to convert and expand the National Academy Museum’s former Upper East Side headquarters into a new gallery, research center, and residence. Located at 3 East 89th Street in Carnegie Hill, any alterations to the landmarked building require explicit approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Upper East Side
Full demolition permits have been filed for 1594-1598 Second Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. According to the filing, the adjacent sites are owned by Kalimian Group under the ELK 300 East 83 LLC and currently house two five-story mixed-use buildings. Within the 60-feet-tall structures is a combined 17,540 square feet, eight units apiece, and ground-floor commercial space.
150 East 78th Street is now ten floors above ground and more than halfway to its 205-foot-tall pinnacle. The edifice is designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects with Ismael Leyva Architects as executive architect and residential layout designer. Developed by Midwood Investment & Development and EJS Group, the 17-story residential building is located at the corner of East 78th Street and Lexington Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The property will contain 25 units, which will average 2,600 square feet apiece.
Construction is getting close to topping out on 1230 Madison Avenue, a Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed residential building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The reinforced concrete superstructure has risen quickly since YIMBY’s early February update and will soon reach its 208-foot pinnacle. Developed by Real Estate Equities Corporation with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the 20-story project is located in the neighborhood of Carnegie Hill on the same parcel as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
Construction is nearing the finish line on Beckford House and Beckford Tower, a pair of residential buildings in the Yorkville section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Crews are almost completely done installing the fenestration of Brynne Brownstone and Indiana Limestone on both the 19-story, 215-foot-tall Beckford House, located at 301 East 81st Street and also addressed as 1562 Second Avenue, and the 29-story Beckford Tower at 301 East 80th Street. The project is designed by Studio Sofield and SLCE Architects and developed by Icon Realty Management, with CM & Associates in charge of construction management.
