The 39-unit Upper East Side condominium 200 East 79th Street is now more than 50 percent sold, according to the Wilf family’s Skyline Developers. Apartments at the property, marketed by Stribling & Associates’ Alexa Lambert, went on sale last month.

The 19-story building, on the corner of Third Avenue, is expected to be ready for occupancy in the third quarter of 2013. Ten units in the CetraRuddy-designed building were already under contract by mid-October, as The Real Deal reported. Prospective buyers now have three-bedroom, four-bedroom and five-bedroom units, as well as five-bedroom penthouses, to choose from. They span 1,920 square feet to 5,100 square feet. Asking prices for the remaining units start at $3.9 million.

“We are meeting the area’s strong demand for large new homes that are keeping with the neighborhood’s aesthetic, and we anticipate that sales will remain strong,” Orin Wilf, Skyline’s president, said in a statement.

In the past, industry executives have said that the building’s location on a busy corner could be a dealbreaker for prospective buyers, and that pricing—when studio apartments were included in the mix—was a bit low. “We feel we are where the market should be priced,” Wilf told TRD last month.

Units include entertainment spaces and laundry rooms. Building amenities include a fitness center and a lounge that opens to a terrace. The building will have private terraces on the upper levels. — Zachary Kussin
