500-Foot Tower Coming To Upper East Side Corner, Plans Show
It would appear to be Manhattan's tallest building north of 72nd Street — but contain fewer apartments than the block used to have.

A developer plans to build a 535-foot-tall apartment tower on an Upper East Side corner, in what would appear to be the tallest building ever constructed north of 72nd Street, according to newly filed plans.

The Naftali Group filed plans with the city on Thursday for the new tower at 255 East 77th St., on the corner of Second Avenue. Naftali had paid $72.6 million last year to acquire the five low-rise buildings on the block's south corner, and began demolishing them earlier this year.

Replacing them will be a 36-story tower containing just 55 apartments, according to plans filed with the Department of Buildings. That suggests a continuation of a recent neighborhood trend, in which dense, low-rise apartment buildings are torn down and replaced with sparsely-populated luxury towers.

Indeed, in this case, the two buildings at 1481-1489 Second Ave. that formerly occupied the site contained a combined 63 apartments, amounting to a net loss of housing, according to city records.

Standing 535 feet tall, the new building would surpass the recently-built luxury condominium tower at 180 East 88th St., which, at 524 feet, has been described as Manhattan's tallest building north of 72nd Street.

Designed by Hill West Architects — the same firm behind a 270-foot tower planned for another Second Avenue corner — the tower will also include nearly 4,000 square feet of retail space and 33 indoor parking spaces.

Naftali did not immediately respond to questions about when construction would begin or how long it would last.

The company's other projects include The Benson, a 21-story tower on Madison Avenue; another 39-story tower at 200 East 83rd St.; and a planned 18-story building on the Upper West Side being stymied by a holdout tenant.

With Naftali in charge, this should be amazing.

^Yah and based on the height of 535 feet, but only containing 55 residences, this will definitely be ultra-luxury.

However the height and location tells me this will face severe community backlash. Does anyone know if he can build this as of right or does it need to face an approvals process?

The new building permit has been filed. Any approvals would have to be granted before it got to that point.

However, the DOB is not without its own approval process, that also takes months from the time a permit is filed until it is granted. It’s the DOB that enforces zoning, and they check every single detail. Literally.

Solid replacement. A nice design will go well for that corner.

With 55 units, will probably be a very luxurious design and amenities.

The insatiable demand for high-end offices, condos, and hotels in NY is a testament to its status as a world capital.

Demolition Progresses At 255 East 77th Street On Manhattan’s Upper East Side



Quote:
Kicking off our annual end-of-year countdown of the 31 tallest projects underway in New York is 255 East 77th Street, a forthcoming 36-story residential tower on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Naftali Group, the 475-foot-tall structure will yield 170,481 square feet with 55 units, as well as 3,861 square feet of retail space, two cellar levels, and 33 enclosed parking spaces. Alba Services is the general contractor for the property, which is alternately addressed as 1481 Second Avenue and located at the corner of Second Avenue and East 77th Street.

Recent photos show the demolition progress on the three current occupants of the plot. The structures are fully covered in scaffolding and black netting, all windows have been removed, and the upper floors of the northernmost building have already been dismantled. Green plywood boards completely obscure the ground floor of each building.

No renderings have been released for 255 East 77th Street, though based on its height and its relatively low-rise surroundings, it should provide residents on the upper floors with panoramic views of the Midtown skyline. The nearest subway from the property is the Q train at the 72nd Street station along Second Avenue. Also nearby to the west is the 6 train at 77th Street and Lexington Avenue.

Demolition began this summer and the three buildings are planned to be fully razed by the summer of 2023, as noted on site. A completion date for 255 East 77th Street has yet to be announced. However, YIMBY predicts this to occur around the end of 2024 or early 2025 at the very latest.
