Situated in Manhattan’s coveted Carnegie Hill neighborhood, 180 East 88th Street is the tallest residential building on the Upper East Side north of 72nd Street. The building has been designed by DDG marking the firm’s first foray uptown and the very first partnership with Global Holdings.
Inspired by the growth in high-rise masonry construction in New York in the early 20th century, 180 East 88th Street pays homage to the lost art of traditional craftsmanship and features iconic arches and a striking hand-laid brick façade made of nearly 600,000 handmade bricks by Denmark’s master brickworks Petersen Tegl.
The development is home to 47 half- and full-floor residences that feature distinguished accents such as formal elliptical entry galleries, custom wainscoting, coved ceilings, wide plank Austrian white oak flooring, and picture rails for displaying art.
One of the most exciting features about 180 East 88th Street is its extensive selection of amenities, unprecedented on the Upper East Side and for residential buildings of this intimate scale. The remarkable spaces have just opened and have been designed by Hadas Dembo of Mise en Scene Design, who also designed a collection of stunning model residences throughout the building. Spanning eight floors, the amenities include a half-court indoor basketball court and partial indoor soccer pitch, wine room, game room, fitness center, and yoga studio, residents’ lounge, and an imaginative children’s playroom. The elegant spaces are as thoughtful and elegant as 180e88’s distinguished homes.
Closings are underway and immediate occupancy is available.
