Construction Back on Track at DDG's 180 East 88th Street
April 13, 2017
Quote:
DDG’s ravishing Upper East Side condo tower, 180 East 88th Street is finally on the rise. Renderings of the 31-story tower were first unveiled in 2015 when its provocative design elicited a mix of oohs and oh-nos from neighbors and armchair architecture critics alike. To the local dissenters, the most shudder-inducing aspect of the project was its proposed 521-foot height –effectively making it the tallest building in the city north of 72nd Street. After much of the foundation was put in place and listings for its 48 condos came online, the project was halted by the Department of Buildings after neighbors and elected officials accused DDG of misinterpreting zoning laws to yield a taller building. Now, after much behind-the-scenes legal wrangling, the stop work order has been lifted and the tower is several floors on its way to its full unabashed glory.
