Last month, permits were filed for a new building at 333 East 82nd Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Now, YIMBY has an exclusive first look at renderings of what will come next. The site is just three blocks from the new 2nd Avenue subway line entrance on 86th street, and Lavin Development will be responsible for the project.
Brooklyn-based Zproekt Architecture will be responsible for the design. The white façade has clear classical inspiration, including two terraces with balustrades, and cornices dividing each floor.
The development was received with mixed reviews, including a debate in the comments of our last article, many lamenting the changing urban environment of the city. The 2nd Avenue subway line will allow the more eastern UES side streets to take in a greater population density and alleviate the city’s housing crisis.
The 75-foot tall structure will yield 35,800 square feet, with 33,250 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 620 square feet for a ground-floor medical facility. 21 apartments will be created, averaging 1,675 square feet apiece, indicating rentals.
Demolition permits were filed in April 2017 for 331, 333, and 335 East 82nd Street. Completion is expected by mid-2020.
