The Upper East Side's Other Great Tower Race

When the upcoming 83-unit, 30-story high-rise (and previous Development Du Jour) 255 East 74th started pounding its chest last week about one-third of its units going to contract, it felt right to drop by to check on the place (above) The pic is from ground level, but from the looks of things they've got a ways to go. (Anyone out there able to get a better look?)

The sales news made us think about that other luxury development at 400 East 67th (and First Avenue), The Laurel. The 31-story (take that, 255 East 74th!) development is set to officially swing open its sales doors on September 15, and 20 units are said to be already sold. How's construction? Looks like five floors above ground level are in.
