Demolition Work Underway At 1448 Third Avenue On Manhattan’s Upper East Side

Published by on

Demolition work is moving along at 1448 Third Avenue, the site of an upcoming 39-story residential tower in the Yorkville section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by Douglaston Development under the 170 E 83 Owner, LLC, the 478-foot-tall structure will span 287,632 square feet and yield 125 units with an average scope of 1,804 square feet, as well as 40,864 square feet of commercial space and 21,224 square feet of community facility space. There will also be a cellar level and a 20-foot-long rear yard. Levine Builders is the general contractor for the property, which is alternately addressed as 170 East 83rd Street and bound by Third Avenue to the east, East 82nd Street to the south, and East 83rd Street to the north. Only the southern half of the building will be demolished.

Recent photographs show the southern half of the low-rise brick-clad structure covered with black netting and metal scaffolding. The interiors have already been emptied out and gutting is continuing. A pair of staircases are attached to the eastern elevation of the building, and YIMBY predicts to see the outside walls razed floor by floor over the next several weeks.
Residential amenities will include a swimming pool, a yoga studio, and bicycle parking.

The nearest subway from the development is the Q train at the 86th Street station at the corner of Second Avenue and East 83rd Street.
A construction timeline and renderings for 1448 Third Avenue have yet to be released
