Superstructure continues to rise at Handel Architect's 388-foot tower in the Yorkville neighborhood on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The 36-story, 230-unit tower has surpassed the seventh floor, completing the structure for the seven-story podium which houses an outpost of the Windward School, an Equinox gym, and other residential amenities. Related's mid block tower is situated behind a two-story building that fronts Third Avenue, ensuring good western views. Renderings indicate a brick and glass facade in keeping with most of the towers constructed in the neighborhood. This tower joins several others by SHoP, ODA and DDG that have been announced for the Upper East Side in anticipation of the opening of the Second Avenue subway line towards the end of the decade.
