A look at the new buildings coming to the Upper East Side A look at the new buildings coming to the Upper East Side
For many years, the Upper East Side was largely dominated by prewar cooperatives that set relatively unchallenged standards for elegance in New York City as a whole. However, thanks in large part to the long-awaited Second Avenue subway, the area has seen a surge in new condominiums that combine heretofore unseen heights with Old World design influences. They offer spacious and sumptuous apartments, an abundance of luxurious amenities and services, and better connection to the rest of the city than ever before.
Luxury buyers are flocking to these apartments, and it shows in prices: Thanks in large part to sales at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 200 East 83rd Street, Yorkville witnessed the biggest year-over-year increase in condo sales prices on a price per square foot basis. Sales in the suddenly transit-accessible area jumped 26% from an an average price per square foot of $1,509 in 2022 to $1,896 in 2023.
As recent events show, this building wave shows no sign of cresting: Demolition permits were filed for the postwar rental previously on 985 Fifth Avenue so a gracious new condominium can rise in its place; sales launched at a number of new condominiums this winter; and several medical centers lining York Avenue have announced expansions. We take a look at newly announced projects and recently completed buildings ready to welcome their first residents.

305 East 61st Street
At 305 East 61st Street, an art warehouse has been converted to a luxury condominium. The building received a new roof and a redesigned facade during the conversion, and the interiors feature high barrel-vaulted ceilings, oversized windows, kitchens with Colorado marble islands and Miele appliances, and baths with radiant floor heating. Select units have private outdoor space, and there are four penthouses at the top of the building.

Residential amenities include a double-height attended lobby, a fully equipped fitness center, and roof deck with wet bar, outdoor kitchen, and city views. Tribeca mainstay Aire Ancient Baths is opening an outpost in the building’s retail space, and residents will enjoy VIP priority perks at the spa.

When plans for a new condominium at 249 East 62nd Street were first announced, they came with renderings of an octagonal tower with a hollow core designed by Rafael Viñoly. Some locals came out against the "building on stilts," but the project was ultimately scrapped due to fire safety concerns and the closing of the mechanical void loophole that would have allowed for the spectacular height.

The building that ultimately rose drew on Art Deco influences to pay respectful tribute to the nearby Treadwell Farms Historic District. Select units have private terraces, and all one- through three-bedroom units feature oversized windows, high ceilings, European white oak flooring, intuitive floor plans, chef's kitchens, and spa-like primary baths. Residents receive complimentary one-year memberships to concierge medicine group Sollis Health and hospitality group Omacasa, and building amenities include an attended lobby, fitness center, sauna and steam room, children's playroom, Club Lounge, and courtyard garden.

As striking as the terraced brick and limestone facade by Cookfox will be, it's what's on the inside that's generating the most excitement at 760 Madison Avenue: Not only will a new Giorgio Armani flagship boutique be housed at the base, but the apartments on top will feature interiors by Armani/Casa. The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the project in May 2019, and demolition permits for the old building were filed about a year later.

Mr. Armani has announced plans to live in the building and designed the interiors of the residences, which feature high ceilings, oversized windows, custom chef’s kitchens with Gaggenau appliances, and a rich palette of materials. There will be private terraces in the majority of the units, and amenities are set to include a state-of-the-art fitness center, an on-site spa treatment room, a Zen tea room with service from Armani Ristorante, and a library and lounge with custom Armani Casa furniture.

The site was formerly occupied by low-rise buildings housing local favorites Candle Cafe and Bistro Le Steak. There will be no more than three units per floor with five full-floor penthouse residences on the upper levels. Amenities are set to include a lounge, a dining room, a fitness center with yoga studio, a library, a cellar-level children’s playroom, and a rooftop terrace.

20 East 76th Street The Surrey, A Corinthia Hotel (Corinthia Group)
When British developers Reuben Brothers bought the Upper East Side's historic Surrey Hotel in December 2020, conversations about converting shuttered hotels to new housing were at their loudest. However, they later announced plans for an extensive renovation and reopening at The Surrey, a Corinthia Hotel, the Corinthia Group's first property in the United States, with 14 residential units on the top floors.

A Landmarks-approved facade restoration and makeover by BKSK Architects is underway, and all hotel rooms and residences will feature interiors by Martin Brudnizki Studio. The hotel is partnering with private members' club Casa Tua on the restaurant and beverage offerings, to replace Cafe Boulud, and amenities are set to include a state-of-the-art fitness center, jewel-box spa, and sauna and steam room. The hotel is anticipated to open its doors in summer 2024.

Construction has topped out on 300 East 83rd Street, a 22-story building on the corner of Second Avenue and down the street from the 86th Street Q train. The average apartment size of 1,305 square feet is highly indicative of condos, but an offering plan has not been filed yet, if indeed at all. A portion of units will reportedly be reserved for affordable housing.

Plans for a new project on the corner of Third Avenue and East 61st Street date back to 2022, when Kahen Properties bought up an assemblage from 1020 to 1026 Third Avenue for $34 million, but did not develop anything right away, possibly in the hopes of a 421a replacement. This has not come to pass, but more details have become available: The building will feature 81 residential units, ground-floor retail space, a fourth-floor gym, and top-floor banquet space. Demolition was completed in 2023, and work is now underway.

Fresh off its success at 300 East 82nd Street, Naftali Group looks further down Second Avenue with a new condominium at 255 East 77th Street. Construction is underway, and the project will ultimately yield 62 units (likely with very few per floor) on top of over 3,600 square feet of retail space. Amenities are rumored to include a fitness center, pool, lounge, and roof deck; it will also include a parking garage, but the 72nd Street Q train is only five blocks south.

Construction is underway on a 20-story condominium on the corner of Second Avenue and East 72nd Street. It has been a long time coming: In 2015, the same year the church previously on the site closed due to declining patronage, developer Chetrit Group bought a corner lot that was part of the project’s assemblage from SL Green from $47.3 million. The church was deconsecrated in 2017 and demolished in early 2020, but the pandemic-induced lockdown on non-essential construction put the project on a long pause.

985 Fifth Avenue
In summer 2023, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved Spitzer Enterprises’ application to demolish a postwar rental at 985 Fifth Avenue and replace it with a new 19-story, 26-unit condominium with a graceful limestone facade and setbacks reminiscent of prewar Upper East Side architecture.

A Landmarks presentation mentioned amenities like a package room, library, game room, lounge, and private garden. However, the greatest perk of all may be its Upper East Side address down the street from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum Mile. It will also be situated near Central Park and Madison Avenue designer flagships. Demolition permits for the previous building were recently filed.

In December 2023, demolition permits were filed for a trio of vacant low-rise properties at 22-26 East 84th Street. An 18-story condominium is set to rise in their place as well as at adjacent site 1122 Madison Avenue, but demolition permits for the Madison Avenue building have not yet been filed. The site is up the street from 109 East 79th Street, another of the developer’s projects.

In September 2022, The Chapman Group filed permits for a 484-foot-tall, 500-unit rental building to take shape on the former site of parking garages and a vacant, five-story residential building. In compliance with the city’s Mandatory Inclusionary Housing law, the developer intends to set aside 25 percent of units for households earning an average of 60 percent of the Area Median Income. The Real Deal notes that between required zoning changes and area officials’ opposition to high-rises shorter than this planned building, it faces an uphill challenge.

If everything goes according to plan, this 760-foot-tall new development on the cusp of the Upper East Side and East Harlem will be the tallest building north of 60th Street. Roughly 30 percent of the apartments (or over 300 units) are to be permanently affordable, and the project will also bring two new schools and a new public park to the area. However, the Marx Brothers Playground sits at the center of the site, and some advocates argue that it is not a playground for the nearby school, but a city park; if it is the latter, any plans for the land may not go through without approval from the State Legislature and governor.

All residents will benefit from improved air quality and lowered noise and utility costs, and half of the planned apartments will be offered below market rate. Renderings of the project show that it will also include new outdoor plazas, a new playground, and a community center.

At one time, this 30-story tower near the corner of First Avenue and East 79th Street was thought to bring housing and a new school to the nexus of Lenox Hill and Yorkville. However, it will be entirely medical offices. The Hospital for Special Surgery has signed on as the anchor tenant and will occupy 200,000 square feet across the lower eight floors, and the upper levels will be occupied by offices of the Department of Health and medical offices providing ambulatory care and surgical facilities. Oversized windows are evident in the renderings, and it will be underpinned by enhanced ventilation and air filtration.

HSS Kellen Tower
As part of a $300 million modernization of the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) campus, a new 12-story tower is on the rise next to the main hospital. The buildings will be connected by a third-story skybridge.

The new tower is set to expand care for joint replacement and spine conditions with three private inpatient floors, new physicians’ offices and exam rooms, and on-site imaging. The plan for the tower also includes critically needed improvements to the nearby East River Esplanade from East 72nd to 78th Streets, building on a 2018 investment to renovate the Esplanade from East 70th to 72nd Streets.

The tower is taking shape with the help of a lead gift from the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation, and will be named the Kellen Tower in their honor. When the expansion was announced in spring 2021, foundation vice president and the Kellens’ daughter Marina Kellen French said in a statement to the New York Post, “It’s not just about bricks and mortar, but about people and New York City.”

A few months later, work began on a new 16-story, 272-bed student residence hall a few blocks away at East 74th Street and York Avenue. The project will pursue LEED Gold certification with features like all-electric HVAC technology, water-conserving fixtures, and energy-efficient lighting. Amenities are set to include study nooks, a fitness center with yoga room, a music room, a student lounge with garden access, and a rooftop lounge with adjoining terrace.

310-East-76th-Street-01 Rendering via DBOX/Ennead Architects
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, New York City's life science industry is going stronger than ever. A key component of that is the expansion of the New York Blood Center ("the Blood Center") on the Upper East Side. The project calls for demolishing the Blood Center's three-story brick headquarters and replacing it with a gleaming, 16-story tower to be dubbed Center East. The Blood Center will be the anchor tenant on the first five floors, where it will continue its work of providing blood products to New York hospitals and developing treatments and vaccines for ailments like HIV and sickle-cell disease. The rest of the building will be leased to life science companies.

The expansion had the support of the de Blasio administration and then-Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, but former Council Member Ben Kallos and the condominium next door strongly objected to the height of the tower. The required rezoning was ultimately approved in November 2021; and in August 2022, a judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by the condo board, saying there was no basis for their complaint of illegal rezoning and that the expanded center would be of great benefit to the community.

MSK said in a statement that the new project will allow them to provide complex care to patients from all over New York and the world, but some locals have been unmoved and called on elected officials not to allow such a tall building.

An expansion of Lenox Hill Hospital, an Upper East Side mainstay since 1857, has long been discussed, and firm details came out in 2019: The first plans called for larger service departments, more beds to be arranged in single-patient rooms, more operating rooms, shared community space, and a dedicated "mother-baby" wing to accommodate growing families. A 41-story condominium was also planned to rise on the hospital's property so as to offset the building costs.

Manhattan's Community Board 8, however, expressed concerns about the scale and density of the project, and accused the hospital of prioritizing medical tourism over affordable healthcare. A revised plan dropped the condo tower and reduced the size of the hospital tower, but locals remained unmoved. However, the hospital isn't giving up -- a spokesperson says the pandemic has made it clearer than ever that it needs to expand.

Amenities include a distinguished lobby, state-of-the-art fitness center, and roof terrace with multiple seating areas and outdoor kitchen.

Fresh off the success of The Benson (see above), Naftali Group quickly got to work on The Bellemont up the street. This boutique condominium only had a small handful of units to begin with; but when it was still under construction, a buyer paid an extra fee to combine two penthouses into one massive, record-setting quadruplex penthouse with an interior elevator and eight private terraces. The building is completely sold out, and all residents enjoy access to a holistic fitness center, a squash court with basketball hoop, a state-of-the-art screening room, a children’s playroom, and a rooftop terrace with views of Central Park.

As convenient as Vitre (see below) is to the new Second Avenue subway, 1289 Lexington Avenue has done it one better: The 86th Street stop is just an elevator ride away, and the developers worked with the MTA to build a new, wider staircase and elevator kiosk to reach it. Apartments range from two- to five-bedroom layouts, and residential amenities include a screening room, lounge, children's playroom, and landscaped roof deck. JPMorgan Chase and Old Navy occupy the building's retail space, and it is close to top shopping, popular restaurants, and gourmet supermarkets.

While zoning might have allowed a larger tower, this mid-block condominium is nevertheless the tallest building in its section of Carnegie Hill. The facade pays tribute to New York's masonry construction and is topped with a glittering crown. Inside, apartments feature soaring ceilings, oversized windows, prewar-inspired details, custom-designed kitchens, and master suites with dressing rooms and baths. The amenity program spans eight floors and includes a fitness center, basketball and sports court, game room, children's playroom, lounge with catering kitchen, and wine room. A penthouse made a memorable appearance on award-winning HBO drama Succession and found a buyer a few months later.

In one of the first virtual Landmarks hearings to take place during lockdown, the residential conversion of the historic Hotel Wales was approved.

It now offers 21 half- and full-floor units with 10’ ceilings, herringbone wood floors, eat-in kitchens, and primary suites with walk-in closets. Amenities include an attended lobby, fitness center, pet spa, private storage, and bike storage.

In an especially tony section of the Upper East Side, a new, stately seven-story mansion is among one of the largest single-family dwellings in Manhattan. Its Federal-style red brick facade and stone quoins pays respectful tribute to its historic surroundings. Details are not available about the interiors, but the house is topped with a basketball court, and there is reportedly a swimming pool in the subcellar.

Ground-up construction is rare on the Upper East Side Gold Coast; as such, 815 Fifth Avenue attracted attention for the sheer novelty, but the fluted limestone base, deeply inset windows, and cornices above certain floors make it a beautiful addition along with a new one. Private members' club Fasano Fifth Avenue offers fully furnished units with Central Park views and interiors by Thierry Despont for short- and long-term stays starting at 30 days. While they are there, they enjoy amenities like a year-round garden terrace, Club Concierge service, and dining at Caffe Fasano.

While Inspir Carnegie Hill was still under construction, the developer was already fielding calls from people expressing interest in the company's first urban development. Small wonder -- it's in an excellent urban location, the residences are designed to maximize natural light, and the project offers enough amenities to put a hip rental to shame. These include a farm-to-table restaurant, 16th-story "sky park," pool, fitness center, salon and spa, library, screening room, and art room.
