Several top new construction buildings on the Upper East Side include 200 East 79th Street, The Bellemont, 180 East 88th Street, and The Benson Several top new construction buildings on the Upper East Side include 200 East 79th Street, The Bellemont, 180 East 88th Street, and The Benson
During the Gilded Age, the Upper East Side was known for the opulent mansions lining the streets. More than 100 years later, period drama The Gilded Age is set to premiere on HBO and a new Gilded Age appears to be taking shape off-screen. This time, instead of single-family mansions, a new crop of luxury condominiums is taking shape alongside Landmarks-protected townhouses and cooperatives. The units inside feature expansive floor plans to begin with, but some buyers are opting to combine apartments into one massive home with multiple levels and private outdoor space. The only discernible difference between this and the townhouses lining the blocks are the access to deluxe amenities and white-glove service.

Below, we take a look at the most architecturally impressive and luxurious new condos on the Upper East Side. The top condos are inspired by prewar architecture, if not conversions of prewar buildings, and all feature spectacular views, top-of-the-line appliances and finishes, and easy access to Central Park, Museum Mile, Madison Avenue shopping, fine dining, and top schools. All figures quoted are based on sales from 2018 to the present.

It is little wonder that Naftali Group displayed Jerry Seinfeld’s pro-city op-ed in The New York Times on the side of The Benson when it was under construction - they clearly felt optimistic about the return of New York after weeks of top sales and a quick sellout. The Benson’s design by Peter Pennoyer Architects pays tribute to the prewar architecture surrounding it with a limestone facade, mullioned windows, and setback terraces. The jewel box lobby and private screening room were designed by Achille Salvagni, and additional amenities include a fitness center, half basketball court, spa with sauna and steam room, library with adjoining garden, pet spa, and landscaped roof terrace with fire pit and Central Park views.
