NY YIMBY has procured some renderings of developer DDG's 31-story residential tower that's headed to 1558 Third Avenue, which reveal a stone facade with enormous arched windows at a couple intervals. Plans call for 151,458 square feet of space divided between only 44 units, for an average of just under 3,500 square feet per unit, indicating that they're going to be condos. The developer bought the site in 2013 for $70 million. The project will join a bunch of other residential towers that are sprouting all over the Upper East Side as the Second Avenue Subway nears completion.
