    Very, very nice.

    UPPER EAST SIDE—Related Companies converted its giant rental tower at 200 East 94th Street into condos, and to help boost sales, they hired a trio of designers to outfit three new model units. Pictured above, the spaces feature the work of Carrier and Company Interiors, GRADE, and Tamara Magel. The condos range from studios to four-bedrooms, with prices starting at $825,000. Of the eight units currently available on StreetEasy, the priciest offering is asking $2.795 million. Sales launched in January.

    Brace: The Tallest Tower North of 72nd Street Is Coming

    Tuesday, April 7, 2015, by Hana R. Alberts


    Part of the Upper East Side's rampant new-building boom, design and development firm DDG has been publicly planning a condo tower on Third Avenue between 87th and 88th streets for almost a year now. Its updated height, first reported by New York YIMBY, is 521 feet, which building reps say will make it the tallest above 72nd Street—trumping the next-tallest by a whole eight feet. It's not so much the number of floors—31—that is superlatively large. (Consider that Yorkville Towers a few blocks north is 34 stories, and that's just one example.) It's that the ceiling heights for the 48 luxury apartments within will be around 16 feet, read: tall, making the overall height of the tower surpass other high-rises in upper Manhattan. While the building, revealed in February, will dominate its predominantly low-rise neighbors, it won't look too out-of-place given that the not-so-modern facade is brick and will sport decorative archways in intervals along its length.

    Here are other preliminary looks at the building, as published in February.

    The Third Avenue site is actually L-shaped, with its other end fronting 88th Street. It is replacing two tenement buildings that have already been demolished, and the tower will cantilever over ones that remain at the corner of 88th and Third.

    It's also directly across from the Upper East Side's brand-new Whole Foods.

    Looks like 60's style architecture.

    That is a lovely looking architectural design: I particularly like the size and shape of the window, and the fact that we see mostly a masonry/stone facade - not all glass/metal. The size of the windows are ideal for the affect of closure/shelter for the interiors, yet large enough for good light and views. This is one of the best works of contemporary residential high rise architecture I have seen lately. Handsome looking building, lovely looking architecture; what more need one say in praise of good architectural design work.....

    I agree, but I kinda like it because it's different.

    Extell's Next Big Batch of Upper East Side Condos, Unveiled

    May 18, 2015, by Zoe Rosenberg


    Renderings via New York YIMBY.

    In June, Extell snatched up five neighboring Upper East Side sites with the intention of bringing an Extell-y tower (big, expensive) to the property, and now first renderings for the monolith to rise on Third Avenue between 94th and 95th streets have made their way down the pipeline. It appears that the condo building to rise at 1681 Third Avenue will stand 23 stories—although YIMBY points out that renderings show a building that's about 30 stories tall—and will have 84 condos averaging about $2,300 per square foot. Although the building will be tall for the Upper East Side, it won't best DDG's 521-foot-tall building rising at 140 East 88th Street, or SHoP's 34-story building planned for 1711 First Avenue.


    Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect of record for the project. According to documents spotted by YIMBY, the building will have about 246,969 square feet of residential space and 14,000 square feet of retail space, and should be complete in 2017.

    They need to boot Gene and McSam and replace them with Extell. Another well crafted highrise.

    Upper East Side's Tallest Tower Gets Green Light To Build

    June 11, 2015, by Hana R. Alberts

    Hey, Upper East Siders. It's time to really brace for the tallest tower in the neighborhood, coming to Third Avenue between 88th and 87th streets. (Note: in this case, "the neighborhood" means between 72nd and 96th streets, even though the UES technically starts at 59th.)

    The 521-foot tower, which is both designed and developed by DDG, got its new building permit today, which means construction can commence on the foundation. The building, filling an L-shaped lot that faces both Third Avenue and 88th Street, will only contain 48 condos—which means that each one will be pretty huge. There are also going to be 16-foot ceilings, and, as for the facade, design is pretty contextual as far as the Upper East Side goes. It's brick and there are rather stately decorative arches.

    Here's a shot behind the blue plywood of the construction site taken recently:



    A few more looks at the site, as seen from Third Avenue, taken today by a tipster:





    And here's the site on 88th Street:

    Default Handel Architects’ Luxurious ‘Amalfi’ Condo Tower Will Be Swanky Senior Living Pads

    Handel Architects’ Luxurious ‘Amalfi’ Condo Tower Will Now Be Swanky Senior Living Pads

    Here’s a closer look at Handel Architects’ design of a would-have-been condominium tower at 305 East 93rd Street, named The Amalfi. The five-parcel site located at the northeast corner of Second Avenue and East 93rd Street in Yorkville was slated to be developed by Merchants Hospitality until they recently bowed out to a senior living developer, Maplewood.
