Last week, YIMBY featured a look at some of the highest and most expensive real estate in the Western Hemisphere, scattered across the uppermost reaches of the Manhattan skyline. Today, we have an interview with a developer whose condominiums often attain similar price-points, even though they’re normally located much closer to street level. YIMBY sat down with DDG’s CEO Joe McMillan to discuss the firm’s current slate of work, their in-house design and development process, and the finer details on major sites like 180 East 88th Street on the Upper East Side, and challenging ones, like 100 Franklin in Tribeca.
