Last week, YIMBY featured a look at some of the highest and most expensive real estate in the Western Hemisphere, scattered across the uppermost reaches of the Manhattan skyline. Today, we have an interview with a developer whose condominiums often attain similar price-points, even though they’re normally located much closer to street level. YIMBY sat down with DDG’s CEO Joe McMillan to discuss the firm’s current slate of work, their in-house design and development process, and the finer details on major sites like 180 East 88th Street on the Upper East Side, and challenging ones, like 100 Franklin in Tribeca.

Speculation has been raised around what Avery Hall Investments would do after purchasing a site from Brooklyn Law School for $76.5 million back in 2016, and acquiring 50,000 square feet of air rights from two nearby properties for another $16 million. Now, permits have been filed for a 21-story mixed use building at 7 Boerum Place, in Downtown Brooklyn. The high-rise will rise on the corner of Fulton Mall, a pedestrian area between Flatbush Avenue and Adams Street that houses over 200 stores. Avery Hall is partnering with Allegra Holding and Aria Development Group.
