Permits have been filed for a six-story community facility at 323 East 61st Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The site is just a couple blocks away from the off ramp of the Queensboro Bridge, and five blocks from the Lexington Avenue 59th Street subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, and W trains. William Macklowe Company will be responsible for the development.

It has been less than four years since permits were filed for 1059 Third Avenue, but thanks to Tectonic we can see the tower has now risen 21 floors above the Upper East Side, on the way to its 30-story pinnacle. The project is one of several new high-rises coming to the neighborhood. Real Estate Inverland and Third Palm Capital are responsible for the development. The site was purchased for $40 million in 2012, costing just over $330 per buildable square foot.
Permits have been filed for a substantial 17-story mixed-use high-rise at 56 West 125th Street, in Harlem, Manhattan.

This is one of several substantial new buildings filed for the neighborhood, showing the economic revitalization of Harlem is far from over. The Jay Group is responsible for the development.

Stern Architects is working on yet another project on the Upper West Side, and this time it’s the restoration and interior design for 225 West 86th Street, aka The Belnord.
