Full demolition permits have been filed for a 25,000-square-foot, four-story structure at 752-760 Madison Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Locate at the corner of East 65th Street, the site is planned to yield a 12-story building that will house the new Giorgio Armani flagship boutique with residential units on the upper floors. SL Green Realty Corp. is listed as the owner behind the applications and partnered with Giorgio Armani Corp. for the future development.

New building permits were filed in February 2019 with COOKFOX Architects listed as the architect of record. The proposed 189-foot tall development will yield 91,179 square feet of space, with 66,811 square feet designated for residential use and 19,387 square feet for commercial space. It will have 19 condominium units averaging 3,516 square feet apiece. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar and a mezzanine. As YIMBY reported last summer, COOKFOX appeared before the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission with alteration proposals to the project’s exterior massing and façade materials.

The nearest subways are four blocks away at the 68th Street station, serviced by the 4 and 6 trains as well as the Lexington Avenue-63 Street station, serviced by the F, Q, and R trains.

A construction completion date has not been announced.

    I would imagine what it would be like I getting constructed, but I’ve always considered myself as a follower: Thank you.

  2. We can all relax now and take a deep breath…

    The construction of these luxury condos is safe to continue. Not even the CONVID 19 virus, our economic collapse and double digit unemployment, massive future budget cuts, police brutality, racism, vandalism or looting will prevent these future tenants emerging from VIP limos to their gilded boxes in the sky!

    Long live the 1%’ers! ?

  3. When was the existing four story building on this site constructed?..the photo here makes it seems pretty contemporary.

    • indeed! it’s awfully good looking, and
      far more modern, and fresh, than the proposed replacement:
      one more serviceable ‘mule’ trudging up the avenue.

  5. A travesty to the residential neighborhood. Where was Landmarks?
