    Boxy glass building under construction on East 79th Street


    20-FEB-07

    Construction is advancing on a glasss-clad, 18-story residential condominium building at 300 East 79th Street, which also has an address of 1510 Second Avenue.

    The developer is 1510 Second Avenue LLC of which Meyer Chetrit is a principal.

    H. Thomas O'Hara is the architect for the development, which will have 40 apartments. His other projects include Sutton 57, the Aurora and the Chartwell House at 1760 Second Avenue. He is also the architect for Jonis Realty's condo apartment building at 45 East 29th Street and the Verde Chelsea at 125th West 22nd Street.

    There will be one apartment on the second floor, and four on the third floor and three on floors four through 12 and two apartments on floors 13 and 14 and floors 15 through 18 will have one apartment each.

    The site was formerly occupied by two low-rise mid-block buildings on the avenue and a low-rise structure at the corner occupied by North Fork Bank.

    The rendering at the right of the boxy building, which has one setback, was posted on wirednewyork.com today and was reportedly taken from a magazine put out by the Corcoran Group but there is no mention of the project on the Corcoran website and there is no website for the project.

    According to a post on wirednewyork.com, "two bedrooms are estimated to start from $1,425,000, three bedrooms from $2,550,000 and Penthouse residents from $4,500,000." The post indicated that the project would be opening this spring and that the building will have a "second floor amenities suite."

    Still, some people on this forum are so shortsighted. They think the loss of all of these independent businesses is not worth our consideration. Hello pianoman
    Ropal is still there - it's on the Second Avenue side of 301 East 78th St - as is NYKB (New York Kitchen and Bath) and a shoe store (like a Foot Locker, but another name I apologize for having forgotten).

    The stores which are gone are Oak Smith & Jones (furniture) and Schmoopies (a tiny food shop).

    I think it snuggles in there quite nicely. I'd be surprised if the ground floor didn't suck though.

    Prime and busy corner, should have gone much higher.

    It was a bank before and will be again.

    Blah. H. Thomas O' Hara continuing the tradition of making the UES the blandest collection of post-war towers in the city.

    Well, that's some jarring contrast to the surroundings. At least it beats the next door postwar stacks of bricks, even if it's just a modern glass box.

    And of course it comes with the requisite vibe-killing bank branch.

    The UES avenues, east of Lex, are crappy.
