Smile NEW YORK | 180 East 88th Street | 521 FT | 31 FLOORS

1558 Third Avenue:


Current Site:



Quote:
In the past, DDG Partners’ projects have all been on or below 14th Street, but the integrated design-and-development firm has finally moved uptown: today their architects filed permits for a tower at 1558 Third Avenue, on the Upper East Side.

The 469-foot, 31-story tower will sit at the corner of East 88th Street, on a site that they picked up from Muss Development for nearly $70 million.

The permit indicates 182,995 square feet of residential space (though, confusingly, just 151,458 square feet of total construction area) divided among just 44 apartments. Even using the lower square footage, this works out to apartments that are nearly 3,500 square feet in size on average – far larger than the average new American single-family home. Units this large combined with the extreme ceiling heights (each story will be more than 15 feet, including mechanical space) and DDG’s past projects all but guarantee that it will be condos.

The project will be by far the most attractive on this stretch of Third Avenue, once dubbed Birnbaum Canyon for all of the Philip Birnbaum-designed middle-class towers that went up after World War II. That building boom was sparked by the demolition of the old IRT Third Avenue elevated line, and perhaps aided by the fact that the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side was one of the last desirable corners of New York City with generous zoning under the 1961 code. (That loose zoning is still in effect, though rent stabilization and controls have made redeveloping the avenues’ remaining tenements difficult.)

These will be super-high floors, and huge apartments.

Their target market is likely totally different than all the supertalls. Here they're looking at rich New York families who want gigantic living spaces in Manhattan, close to the best private schools.

And at nearly 500 ft., the views from this part of the Upper East Side will be pretty spectacular.

Lots Cleared For 1558 Third Avenue, Permits Not

Quote:
Across from soon to be open Whole Foods (East 88th and Third Avenue), Three walk-up buildings have been demolished and the "L" Shaped lot is ready for foundation work. Proposed is a 469 foot tall, 31 story building consisting of 151,000sf divided into 44 apartments and common facilities. At an average of 3500sf each these Manhattan McMansions would be perfect customers for the new high end market on the other side of the street. That is, provided that actual human beings move into the apartments, rather than simply being dark apartments that make for convenient homes to overseas money.

There is one sticking point. According to the NYC DOB, the permits, originally filed in August 2014 have yet to be approved. The Development Challenge Process is pending zoning approval and the most recent plan exam was disapproved on January 14th of this year. Perhaps the delay is based on height. The property was marketed for sale with a limit of 365 feet, while the permits call for 469 feet. It is not know whether additional rights were purchased from the corner lot that this development surrounds. With a plan of 15' ceilings, perhaps an easy solution would be to scale them down to a still grand 10' to 11' and it comes within the original height as-of-right.

First Look: 1558 Third Avenue, aka 180 East 88th Street, DDG’s 31-Story Upper East Side Tower





Quote:
The DOB filings reveal a total construction area measuring 151,458 square feet, and split between the 44 apartments listed on filings, that yields an average unit size surpassing 3,000 square feet. The palatially-sized homes will have ceiling heights to match, and even though the tower will only have 31 floors, it will stand 469 feet to its roof.

HTO Architects is listed on the permit as the architect of record, but as mentioned, DDG does most of their design work in-house. Like their recent projects at 10 Bond Street and 345 West 14th Street (aka 345 Meatpacking), that should yield a contextually-minded building that improves upon the neighborhood architectural lexicon.

In the case of 1558 Third Avenue — or 180 East 88th Street — the building will feature a distinguished stone facade. Massive arched windows will crown the structure, also lining the ground floor and one of the mid-levels, after the initial setbacks.

On the very top, the facade will continue past the arched windows, and the rooftop mechanicals will also be covered in a stone parapet. At the base, the building’s envelope will match the existing street-wall, with a set of staggered setbacks yielding to the intermediary level with arched windows.

Views Revealed For 180 East 88th Street, The Upper East Side’s Future Tallest Building Above 72nd Street



Quote:
Over the summer, Tribeca-based DDG broke ground on a 32-story tower at 180 East 88th Street, which will one day by the tallest building above 72nd Street, standing 521 feet to its pinnacle. Now, YIMBY has the first look at what the view from the upper reaches of the tower will entail. The building’s 48 condominiums will feature two-, three- and four-bedroom configurations, and a penthouse duplex will be located on the top two floors. Commercial space will also span 52,000 square feet in the base. HTO Architect is the architect of record, while DDG is designing in-house, and sales are expected to launch this fall.

DDG Parners site is updated (9/21/15)

Said's this is u/c, which I can believe.

Quote:
The scaffolding doesn’t lie: We’re in the midst of a serious condo-and-rental-building boom with buildings like DDG’s 180 East 88th Street and 12 Warren Street quickly rising. Over 3,600 permits have been filed for new residential structures in the past two years – to be precise, 2,394 in 2014 and 1,230 thus far this year, compared with 2,804 in total for 2009 and 2010. Talk of the 421(a) tax abatement expiring this past summer (it didn’t) may have spurred the recent frenzy, with much of it concentrated in the usual suspects of Hudson Yards, Downtown Brooklyn, and LIC. But new pockets of construction are emerging in unlikely corners, like the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island and the South Bronx. With an overwhelming number of projects to sift through, here’s a selection of some of the more notable arrivals, for magnates and non-magnates alike.

AG approves DDG’s $308M condo plan at 180 East 88th Street

Quote:
Joe McMillan’s DDG received the green light to begin selling apartments at its Upper East Side condo tower, which will aim for a total sellout of slightly more than $308 million.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office last month approved the Tribeca-based development firm’s condo offering plan for its under-construction tower at 180 East 88th Street. DDG is aiming for a total sellout of $308.2 million, a figure that also includes storage space in the building. Construction kicked off earlier this summer on the 32-story tower, which will feature 30-foot-high masonry arches and a brick façade imported from Denmark.

Along with the Zeckendorfs’ 520 Park Avenue, DDG’s building will be one of the tallest on the Upper East Side. The development firm paid $68 million, or $538 per buildable square foot, when it bought the site in 2013, making it one of the riskier development deals out there. DDG is also behind the XOCO, a nine-story condo building at 325 Broadway in Soho. It has four listings on the market, ranging from $2.6 million to $7.6 million.

This building is really sexy. Too bad they didn't go for the 621 ft. version, (supposedly the developer thought that version had too small floorplates) but at 521 ft. still looks great.

Units Come Online for 180 East 88th Street, Tallest Building Between 72nd Street and Albany

Quote:
In spite of a bristling array of glass spires erupting into our man-made mountain range and a global high-rise boom remodeling world cities into alien, cutting-edge anonymity, Manhattan stubbornly manages to appear tellurian. But Joseph McMillan’s integrated real estate investment and design company DDG has emerged as one firm genuinely committed to nurturing and progressing our architectural zoo of a city. Their past projects–345 Meatpacking, 41 Bond Street, XOCO 325, and 12 Warren– transcend common architectural styles, clad in a unique palette of materials and composed of an uncanny mashup of parts informed by context, nature, and technology.

That blank wall looks better than most facades with windows.
