The prime blocks of the Upper East Side seldom see new developments, but renderings have now been revealed for the H.T.O. Architect-designed 27 East 79th Street. The project is the first new building to rise on its block in nearly forty years. The architect teamed up with the Parisian firm, Cabinet Albero Pinto, to create a structure fit for the neighborhood.
In April, developer Matthew Adell shelled out $28 million for an odd-looking, five-story townhouse at 27 East 79th Street on the Upper East Side. Now, he plans to build a 15-story condo building on the property, which is three doors down from former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s mansion at 17 East 29th Street.
