After clustering around 57th Street for the last several years, super-tall condominiums, which are coveted by buyers for their views and scorned by some others for their bulk, are turning up in other neighborhoods.
Fresh renderings of what will soon become one of the tallest towers on the Upper East Side are here.
As The Real Deal previously reported, developer Joseph A. McMillan, Jr.’s luxury condo tower at 180 East 88th Street will be the tallest building north of 72nd Street when it’s completed in 2018. It will rise some 521 feet.
McMillan’s Tribeca-based DDG bought the site from Muss Development in 2013, paying $68 million, or $538 per buildable square foot. Over the summer, the developer broke ground on the project, which will feature 30-foot-high masonry arches and a brick façade imported from Denmark.
Back in November, DDG received the green light from the AG’s office to begin selling apartments. It’s aiming for a total sellout of $308 million, including its storage units.
Apartments range from $3.2 million for a two-bedroom to $6.6 million for a four-bedroom.
