Beckford House, located at 301 East 81st Street, and Beckford Tower at 301 East 80th Street, are two new developments in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Yorkville. Designed by Studio Sofield and SLCE Architects and developed by Icon Realty Management, both structures are topped out and their exterior brick and stone curtain walls are rising.
Upper East Side
Work on the façade and interiors of 40 East End Avenue is nearing completion on the Upper East Side. The 81,000-square-foot, 29-unit residential building is located at the corner of East 81st Street and will feature two- to five-bedroom apartments, a maisonette, and a duplex penthouse with a private rooftop terrace. Pricing for the residences will range from $3 million to $25 million. Deborah Berke Partners designed the 210-foot, 20-story project in collaboration with Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects. Lightstone is the developer, while Corcoran Sunshine is responsible for sales and marketing.
New York-based ODA Architecture has revealed another playfully designed residential building, at 310 East 86th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Reminiscent of the firm’s previous commissions, which are characterized by expressive cubic design language, this new development features a series of boxy setbacks and graceful cantilevers that incorporate private outdoor spaces on the upper levels.
Plans for a Lenox Hill Hospital expansion have been in the works for sometime now, and renderings show a 41-story residential building on part of the hospital’s Upper East Side property. This 490-foot-tall condominium tower will sit on the corner of East 76th Street and Park Avenue and include about 200 units, while a second 30-story tower will be built on the opposite Park Avenue corner at East 77th Street. This structure will include a “mother-baby” hospital wing as well as operating rooms, patient rooms, and programmable shared community spaces. The proposal calls for a total of 1.3 million square feet, up from the hospital’s current 780,000 square feet at 100 East 77th Street.
Permits have been pre-filed for a 35-story mixed-use building at 200 East 83rd Street, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Located between 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue, the corner lot is also known as 1469 3rd Avenue. The 86th Street subway station is three blocks north, serviced by the N and Q trains. Michael Witek of the Naftali Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
