Far from the stodgy, staid land it's made out to be, the Upper East Side is actually chock-full of new-development action. Well, maybe for the former, its reputation is somewhat deserved, but at least there will be a slew of new apartments up for sale and rent over the next several months. Right now, more details have been revealed about the rental tower headed for the corner of 74th Street and York Avenue. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is designing the 20-story building, which will house 82 units total: 34 studios (485-525 square feet); 16 one-bedrooms (745-965); 29 two-bedrooms (1,010-1,585); three three-bedrooms (over 1,770); and four penthouses (including one duplex). Bond New York will handle the leasing; an office will open September 1, with move-ins starting November 1.
About three-quarters of the apartments will have balconies, and a few have private terraces. Most apartments also have washer-dryers. There are two common roof decks, one with an outdoor kitchen, a gym, yoga room, kids' playroom, bike room, storage facility, some parking, and a lounge "with gourmet kitchen and entertaining area, library, flexible social areas." Rents are not yet available, but let's just assume they'll be on the "very" side of "expensive." And even though the project is epically far from the subway, you probably had the Upper East Siders at "yoga room."
