This week Bristal Assisted Living opened its first assisted living facility for seniors in Manhattan. Located at 1622 York Avenue on the Upper East Side, the property is aptly named Bristal at York Avenue and comprises 132 apartments for seniors in need of independent or assisted living, highly specialized care for residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia, and a collection of condo-quality amenities and recreational spaces.
Construction is rising on 323 East 79th Street, a 17-story residential tower in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side. Designed by Woods Bagot Architects and developed by Boomerang Development Group, which purchased the property from Spruce Capital Partners for $13.7 million, the 214-foot-tall structure will yield 35,045 square feet and 15 full-floor condominium units. Each will feature a three-bedroom, two-bathroom layout with direct elevator access, and some will span two floors. Sunlight Construction AA LLC is the general contractor for the property, which is located on a narrow plot between First and Second Avenues.
Permits have been filed for a 22-story mixed-use building at 1637 First Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Located between East 85th and East 86th Streets along First Avenue in Yorkville, the lot is one block from the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the Q train. Extell Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.
