Exterior work at 40 East End Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side is now complete, and YIMBY has a look at a new set of photos of the project thanks to developer Lightstone Group. The 100,000-square-foot, 28-unit residential building rises on the northern corner of East 81st Street and East End Avenue. The complex features two- to five-bedroom apartments, a maisonette, and a duplex penthouse with a private rooftop terrace. Pricing for the residences ranges from $3 million to $25 million. Deborah Berke Partners collaborated with Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects on the design of the 210-foot-tall, 20-story project, and Corcoran Sunshine is responsible for sales and marketing.
Upper East Side
Trader Joe’s, one of the New York City’s most beloved independent grocery chains, could soon open up shop in a recently vacated landmarked venue near the Manhattan onramp of the Queensboro Bridge at 405 East 59th Street. The application is currently under review by the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) which is expected to provide feedback on proposed upgrades to the building’s facçade and historic interior spaces.
Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 1230 Madison Avenue, a Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed residential building on the Upper East Side. The reinforced concrete superstructure is starting to reach the height of its abutting low-rise neighbors and will eventually top out at 208 feet tall. Located in Carnegie Hill on the same block as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the 20-story project is being developed by Real Estate Equities Corporation (R.E.E.C.) with SLCE Architects as the architect of record.
The curtain wall is steadily rising up 1059 Third Avenue, a 481-foot-tall mixed-use tower on the Upper East Side. Designed by Manuel Glas Architects and developed by Real Estate Inverland and Third Palm Capital, the slender reinforced concrete superstructure topped out at 30 stories and will yield a total of 127,000 square feet. The development will contain 38 condominiums spread across 103,900 square feet, averaging around 2,740 square feet apiece.
Exterior work is nearing completion at 180 East 88th Street, the tallest structure on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. DDG is the designer and principal developer of the 31-story residential skyscraper, for which HTO Architects is serving as the architect of record and Global Holdings Management is also developing. Petersen Tegl, a Denmark-based firm, is in charge of putting together the thin Kolumba masonry bricks in the gray-colored façade.
