Foundation Work Underway For 36-Story, 372-Unit Residential Building At 225 East 39th Street, Midtown East

Permits were filed early last year for a 36-story, 372-unit residential building at 225 East 39th Street/222 East 40th Street, in Midtown East, and YIMBY later revealed renderings of the project that summer. Since then, a six-story garage was demolished, and now foundation work is underway, per Curbed. The rental units — 20 percent of which will be let at below market rates — will spread across 343,187 square feet of space, with units averaging 922 square feet apiece. Fisher Brothers is developing, and Handel Architects is designing, with completion expected in 2017.
