The Landmarks Preservation Commission will soon consider renovation proposals for 954 Madison Avenue, a historic corner property on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Iconic fashion label Carolina Herrera commissioned the project, hoping to enlarge the existing Madison Avenue flagship location.
Upper East Side
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.
The blocks of Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side very rarely see new developments, but today, YIMBY has the scoop for new building applications filed at 1045 Madison Avenue, on the east side of the street between East 79th and East 80th Streets. There, the talented Peter Pennoyer will be designing a new 18-story condominium project for The Naftali Group.
The latest renderings reveal what’s coming to 40 East End, a 20-story condominium development rising on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Construction has been ongoing since 2015, when YIMBY first reported on the project. Lightstone is the developer.
An enormous new healthcare center has opened its doors on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The 740,000 square foot structure is located between 68th and 69th Street, on York Avenue, and is the latest addition to the New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center campus. Three different design firms, HOK, Ballinger, and Pei Cobb Freed & Partners worked in collaboration for the project.
