A look at the new buildings coming to the Upper East Side
Between the long-awaited Second Avenue subway and uncontained creativity of designers and developers, the Upper East Side is in the midst of a residential renaissance. The once cooperative-dominated area is seeing condos rising at heretofore unseen heights. Upon completion, super-luxurious interiors, an abundance of amenities, and suddenly easy transportation access will tempt buyers away from the old guard.

We take a look at the construction progress and planned interiors for the new buildings that are set to take the Upper East Side, not to mention all of Manhattan by storm. However, one thing that has not changed is the neighborhood's reputation for high prices: According to CityRealty listings, the median price of an Upper East Side condo is $2.495 million.

Cabinet Alberto Pinto is the designer behind the private salons of the Élysée Palace in Paris and several of London's top hotels, and its first Manhattan residential venture brings a touch of European elegance to the Upper East Side. The pale limestone facade, custom lanterns, elaborate ironwork entry, and arched windows are reminiscent of an elegant Parisian mansion. Inside, apartments feature direct elevator entry, expansive proportions, custom European kitchens with top-of-the-line appliances, and marble baths with high-end finishes. The building is a stone's throw from the Cook Block and a short walk from Central Park.

Construction has nearly topped out on this svelte, stunning condo tower up the street from Bloomingdale's, and the imaginative facade is also on the rise. Upon completion, all residences will boast soaring ceilings, and high-floor homes will enjoy magnificent Central Park views. An eighteenth-floor amenity space will include a lounge, terrace, gym, and pool with spa area. Sales are expected to launch later this quarter.

While zoning might have allowed a larger tower, this mid-block condominium is nevertheless the tallest building in 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.

Ground up construction is rare on the Upper East Side Gold Coast, but the fluted limestone base, deeply inset windows, and cornices above certain floors will prove attention-grabbing long after construction is complete. Duplex apartments have been designed to make the most of the views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. An accepted offering plan lists a $151.25 million sellout.

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 the Giorgio Armani flagship boutique be housed at the base, but the apartments on top will feature interiors by Armani/Casa. According to The New York Times, Mr. Armani plans to live in the building and transform it into an all-encompassing brand experience for residents. Work is expected to begin next year, and completion is anticipated for 2023.

301 East 80th Street is the tallest of a two-building development planned for a stretch of Second Avenue right between two newly opened subway stops. There will be no more than three apartments per floor above the sixth level, and floors 27-29 will be occupied by a triplex penthouse. Amenities will include a fitness center, yoga studio, boxing studio, pool, basketball court, game room, children's playroom, and bike room.

The smaller sister building to 301 East 80th Street (see above) is about ten floors up, but the developers are already optimistic about its prospects: A recently accepted offering plan lists a $185 million sellout. Only one or two apartments per floor will allow for optimal privacy, and that is especially the case of the duplex penthouse at the top. An amenity roof deck is planned for residents.

Vitre was one of the first condo towers to rise across the street from the newly opened 96th Street subway stop, and residents will have some of the easiest transportation access in the neighborhood. They will also enjoy high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, white oak flooring, and state-of-the-art kitchens. Select units will have private terraces, and all residents can enjoy a rooftop sun deck, a lounge with a terrace, and concierge services by Hello Alfred.

As convenient as Vitre will be to the new Second Avenue subway, the Hayworth will do one better: The 86th Street stop will be just an elevator ride away for future residents, and the developers are working with the MTA to build a new, wider staircase and elevator kiosk to reach it. Construction on the tower topped out last summer, and the facade is nearing completion. Apartments will range from two- to five-bedroom layouts, and residential amenities will include a screening room, lounge, children's playroom, and landscaped roof deck.

A few blocks east of Inspir Carnegie Hill (see below), permits have just been filed for another senior housing complex. The fourteenth floor will house a treatment center, fitness center, beauty salon, and dining room. However, its location two avenues away from the recently reopened 86th Street subway station will grant residents easy access to the city's restaurants and cultural offerings.

The Upper East Side's newest senior center is still under construction, but the developer is already receiving calls from people expressing interest. 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 will include a farm-to-table restaurant, 16th-story "sky park," pool, fitness center, salon and spa, library, screening room, and art room.

If everything goes according to plan, the tower rising on the city's NYCHA-owned land will be the tallest Passive House building in the world. 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.

Several popular local restaurants and bars are on surrounding blocks, and the 86th Street subway stop is a short walk away. A recently accepted offering plan lists a $56.6 million sellout.
