Unit 38W is asking $15 million (DDG) Unit 38W is asking $15 million (DDG)
One of the biggest new additions to Carnegie Hill since well, Andrew Carnegie parked his mansion on Fifth Avenue is 180 East 88th Street, a towering new condo building developed and designed by Joe McMillan's DDG. Sailing past obstacles set by spunky Upper East Side NIMBYs, the 524-foot tall building is pressing upward, now more than halfway towards its catenary-arched crown.
180 East 88th Street this past May (CityRealty)
Come 2019, the team will deliver 48 pre-war-inspired residences unique to any product on or off the market. Among the most coveted units are the duplex residences which feature nearly 30-foot-high ceilings and a custom-designed sculptural staircase. Last week, the team listed residence 38W, the last remaining duplex available in the building. From its lofty space to its wide-angle views above the city, this particular aerie undoubtedly rises to the occasion.
