    Rendering of 155 East 79th Street

    In the four years since I moved to the Upper West Side from the Upper East Side near 79th Street, that important cross-street has seen extensive changes. Among these are the emergence of 200 and 300 East 79th Street, at the southeast corners of Third and Second avenues respectively. Another wonderful arrival: the beautiful new postmodern structure at 135 East 79th, formerly the home of the modly ugly Hunter College School of Social Work.

    Now, there’s more good news on the design front along 79th Street. For years, an off-putting one story structure — little more than a shed, really — has plugged a hole between two stately buildings just in from Lexington and 79th in the direction of Third Avenue. It housed what was called an antiques store, though it was really more of a glorified junk shop. Two years ago it was torn down. Now, rising in its place, is the far more promising 155 East 79th Street, which has nearly topped out. Developed by Anbau Enterprises, the building has been designed by BKSK Architects, with interiors by Pembrooke & Ives.

    Sky-high prices for trophy apartments drove the Manhattan condominium market to new records in 2013, according to an analysis of city records. Indeed, there were over 50 closings averaging $8.9 million or more in just four new luxury developments, the data show, pushing the median condo price to a record $1.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.

    Veteran Upper East Side brokers, including the Kleier family and Fox Residential chief Barbara Fox, gathered last night for the official opening of Brodsky Development’s 135 East 79th Street. While the event took place at an ad hoc sales center at 654 Madison Avenue built to resemble the building’s interiors, and not at the property itself, guests were suitably impressed by the detailed finishes on display and kept busy munching on tiny macaroni and cheese dishes and steak and arugula mini salads.

  • Two exterior renderings of 135 East 79th Street and architect William Sofield

    From the December issue:  For most the past four decades, the entire block along 79th Street between Park and Lexington avenues has been blighted by the Hunter College School of Social Work. But the building, which was erected in 1972, was razed two years ago to make way for a luxury condominium: 135 East 79th Street. The main problem with the Hunter building was its woeful inadequacy to its context: amid the Upper East Side’s turn-of-the-century gentility of Georgian classicism, Art Deco and a few surviving townhouses, here was a sudden (and clamorous) barrage of 1970s Modernism. The building might have made a bit more sense in Midtown, but here on East 79th Street, it radiated a tremor of menace, even sleaze, in all directions. [more]

    New details about the Brodsky Organization’s 135 East 79th Street come from a teaser site for the 19-story, 32-unit residential property — and it hints at the kinds of tenants that Brodsky envisions living there. According to Curbed, brokers and buyers are being asked about their unit-size preferences, with options ranging from two to five bedrooms. Prices are to range from $6.8 million to more than $20 million, Curbed said. [more]

  • What to watch in 2012

    January 05, 2012 10:30AM

    From the January issue:Last month The Real Deal spoke with real estate professionals to learn which projects and players will be on their radar in the year ahead. After dozens of interviews, hours of research and many editorial meetings, we winnowed down a list of real estate players and projects to watch in 2012. We weren’t looking for the city’s top brokers, or the biggest firms or the most successful developments. Instead, we were looking for the most interesting newcomers who are already making a splash, or the veterans putting their expertise to use in a different way. We looked at the developments that have the power to change a neighborhood — or demonstrate the folly of hubris. We looked at the new alliances that will be tested in the coming year, and the investors who have money to plow into property in the upcoming months. [more]
