5 New Developments on the Upper East Side

There is a continuing increase in the number of apartments in Manhattan that are being constructed. Out of the many distinct neighborhoods on the island, there is a particularly growing number of apartments in the Upper East Side that are either already on the market and or sold, or will eventually be created in the next few years.  The Yorkille section between Second and Third Avenue is witnessing such change. Plans for new buildings as high as nearly 500 feet tall have either just begun to get underway or are nearing completion. We gathered 5 sites that are surely bound to transform the area and bring a collection of new rental and condominium units.

1) 200 East 83rd Street

The tallest new building currently underway in the neighborhood is 200 East 83rd Street, a 35-story residential tower nearing completion in the Yorkville section of the neighborhood. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and developed by Naftali Group and Rockefeller Group, the topped out 489-foot-tall reinforced concrete superstructure will yield a total of 205,877 square feet and bring 86 apartments to the Upper East Side with sales and marketing led by Compass, as well as 3,033 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking for 26 vehicles. SLCE Architects is serving the architect of record for the property, which is located at the corner of Third Avenue and East 83rd Street.

200 East 83rd Street will have some of the most luxurious apartments in Manhattan  which would range from one- to six-bedroom layouts with pricing from $2.05 million to $32.5 million. Two-bedrooms begin at $3.175 million, three-bedrooms at $4.35 million, and four-bedrooms at $5.35 million. There are also three penthouses available in five- or six-bedroom layouts with prices from $23 million to $32.5 million. Each comes with private outdoor space. The lowest homes start on the seventh floor with a maximum of four homes per level. Apartments on the lower floors have an average span of 2,000 square feet. Two full-floor penthouses are perched on the 32nd and 33rd stories, followed by a sprawling duplex penthouse above.

The upcoming amenities include a vaulted porte-cochere with automated parking opening onto a private courtyard; a 70-foot pool with double-height vaulted ceilings and honed limestone walls on the 17th floor, opening to a loggia with expansive views of the New York City skyline and Central Park; a Winter Garden featuring a double-height loggia with floor-to-ceiling arched windows, vaulted ceilings, and access to an outdoor terrace that can be booked for private gatherings; and a wood- and leather-paneled library that features a fireplace framed by bespoke Rottet Studio-designed marble mantelpiece and has an adjoining landscaped garden. 200 East 83rd also boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio; a luxurious spa with a steam room, sauna and custom-designed treatment room; playrooms; a private cinema; and a lobby attended 24 hours a day with a doorman and concierge service.

200 East 83rd Street should fully wrap up construction next year. 

2) The Bellemont 

Another new but much smaller residential project that's also designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects is The Bellemont, a 13-story residential building at 1165 Madison Avenue. SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record, while Naftali Group is the developer of the topped out 120-foot-tall structure. There will be 67,680 square feet of newly built space that would house 12 condominium units with interiors by Achille Salvagni and sales and marketing by Compass Development Marketing Group. Alongside the homes will also be 3,749 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The Bellemoint is located at the corner of Madison Avenue and East 86th Street, a short walk from Central Park.

Amenities at The Bellemont will include an outdoor rooftop terrace overlooking Central Park, a screening room, a regulation squash court, a children’s play room, and a holistic fitness space.

The Bellemont is slated for completion next summer.

Located across the Q train's 83rd Street subway station is 250 East 83rd Street, an upcoming 31-story residential tower designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Torkian Group. The 370-foot-tall structure will yield 128 units with interiors designed by Lemay + Escobar, as well as ground-floor commercial retail space. The project is located at the corner of Second Avenue and East 83rd Street.

4) 300 East 83rd Street

Our final site is 1299 Third Avenue, a 33-story residential tower designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Elad Group. who had previously purchased the plot for $61 million back in April. The upcoming 420-foot-tall structure will yield a total of 47 units and will likely be condominiums. 1299 Third Avenue is located between East 74th and East 75th Streets.
