A significant development is in the works for Extell in the Upper East Side.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Extell begins to reveal its hand on Third Avenue project



Company files plan to demolish two buildings on Upper East Side block

June 13, 2014 05:20PM

Extell Development appears to be moving forward with development of a Third Avenue block between 94th and 95th streets. On June 11, Helwal Engineering filed for a permit to demolish 1681 and 1683 Third Avenue, two of Extell’s holdings along the Upper East Side strip, city records show.

The developer behind One57 and 995 Fifth Avenue has been stockpiling holdings along the block at least since the end of last year.

On December 21, Extell bought the mixed-use building at 1683 Third for $3.2 million. As part of the deal, it also picked up 1681 Third Avenue and 37,752 square feet of air rights tied to that property for $7.7 million, The Real Deal previously reported.

Then on February 1, Extell purchased 1685 Third Avenue from Ogrin Associates for $8.63 million. That same day, Extell sold its rights to 1570 Second Avenue to Ogrin for less than half the $9.47 million purchase price.

An LLC – which lists Extell president Gary Barnett as manager — has owned the buildings at 1687 and 1689 Third Avenue since 2004.

The residential zone where the properties are located allows for the highest density residential development in the city, a Department of City Planning spokesperson previously told The Real Deal.



This could be quite significant. As per Extell's habit, renders may not be available until work begins.

Demolition Underway at Mysterious Extell Third Avenue Site
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/09/18/demolition_underway_at_mysterious_extell_third_avenue_site.php#more






Demolition is underway at 1681-1689 Third Avenue, the five consecutive sites between 94th and 95th streets that developing giant Extell acquired over the course of nine years, from 2004 to 2013.

While the developer has yet to announce its specific plan for the site, it is Extell, and there are quite a lot of air rights involved, so smart money says that the plan involves an enormous, glassy tower. The fact that the area allows for the highest density residential development in the city, however, suggests that the tower could be contain other than Extell's typical huge condos for billionaires. (Rentals? Affordable housing, maybe?) Extell has filed demolition plans with the Department of Buildings for all five existing buildings, which are all four-stories and contain between 10 and 15 units apiece. Permits for nos. 1687 and 1689 were issued in July, and the permit for 1681 was issued the day before yesterday. Nos. 1683 and 1685 don't have permits yet.

Permits Filed:

This should be moved to the General Urban Dev section. I thought this sucker would be a lot taller considering where it is located in the UES and the size of the footprint.

Extell’s 1681 Third Avenue to Stand 23 Stories Tall
http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/09/undefined

the application for a new building permit has been submitted, revealing that the building will stand 23 stories and 260 feet tall, with 90 apartments (surely condos, given the market) – smaller than DDG’s 31-story, 469-foot 1558 Third Avenue, and Anbau’s 34-story, 351-foot 1711 First Avenue.

Any new market-rate condos on the Upper East Side will obviously be targeting the solidly luxury market, but the building’s relatively tame 11-foot floor-to-floor heights and lack of full-floor units (just the penthouse buyers will have a whole floor to themselves) suggest that its pricing will be closer to Anbau’s project than DDG’s.

Beyer Blinder Belle is listed as the architect on the permit, and 1681 Third Avenue will have 190,000 square feet of residential space, plus a 13,000-square foot retail component in the cellar and on the ground floor.

The apartments will average over 2,100 square feet, with the bulk of the tower – from the seventh floor through the 21st – having just three units per floor.

Revealed: 1681 Third Avenue, Extell’s New Condominium Tower Coming to the Upper East Side
http://newyorkyimby.com/2015/05/revealed-1681-third-avenue-extells-new-condominium-tower-coming-to-the-upper-east-side.html

YIMBY first reported on new building permits for 1681 Third Avenue last November, when Extell filed a new job application for the site, located between East 94th and 95th Streets on the Upper East Side. We now have the reveal for the condominium tower coming to the lot, which is substantially taller than the 23-story building indicated in the first DOB filings.

Beyer Blinder Belle is listed as the architect of record, and the new building looks to stand 31 or 32 stories tall. DOB permits are likely pending final adjustments, but internal documents list the residential area of the project at 246,969 square feet, to be divided amongst 84 condominiums....Read more in link:
