Does anyone know if there are construction plans for the buildings that were recently demolished on the southwest corner of 83rd and 2nd in Manhattan?
Yes, it will be a residential development. There were renderings in one of the local real estate publications, and it’s a handsome, prewar-looking tower, I believe. Not sure if was a Stern design, but something of that ilk.
Well, everything new in Yorkville looks pretty good, taking into an account that almost everything already there looks crap,tbh.
If it looks like that it’ll be overshadowed by the Beckford buildings and Stern’s 200 E 83rd.
are there two lots here (250 & 300)? This is the third rendering i’ve come across. The smaller buildings rendered are more consistent with the floor count. The one in the YIMBY article above seems too tall.
Yes, two separate developments.
These luxury buildings are going fast, but they do not represent the only opportunities to purchase in the area. Far from it–down the street from 200 East 83rd Street, construction recently commenced on what will be a 23-story tower at 250 East 83rd Street. Renderings depict an Art Deco-inspired tower with multiple setbacks and a light-colored facade; upon completion, it will house 106 residential units on top of commercial space. Torkian Group is the developer, and SLCE Architects is listed as the designer of record.
Demolition permits for the four-story building previously on-site were filed in March 2019; in addition to apartments on top, it housed Italian restaurant Erminia. Erminia was named one of America’s most romantic restaurants by OpenTable in February 2018, but closed in the wake of the pandemic and has not announced plans to open elsewhere.
Across Second Avneue, Lalezarian Group is at the helm of a new project at 300 East 83rd Street with SLCE Architects as the designer of record. Lalezarian sued the owner of a neighboring building in September 2021, saying their inability to access it was holding up their project, but evidently prevailed—construction is now underway. Renderings depict a 22-story building towering over its low-rise neighbors and sporting a tasteful facade. It is not known yet whether the 70 units will be condos or rentals; the average apartment size of 1,203 square feet is indicative of condos, but an offering plan has not been filed yet, if at all.
