Construction Back on Track at DDG's 180 East 88th Street
April 13, 2017
Quote:
DDG’s ravishing Upper East Side condo tower, 180 East 88th Street is finally on the rise. Renderings of the 31-story tower were first unveiled in 2015 when its provocative design elicited a mix of oohs and oh-nos from neighbors and armchair architecture critics alike. To the local dissenters, the most shudder-inducing aspect of the project was its proposed 521-foot height –effectively making it the tallest building in the city north of 72nd Street. After much of the foundation was put in place and listings for its 48 condos came online, the project was halted by the Department of Buildings after neighbors and elected officials accused DDG of misinterpreting zoning laws to yield a taller building. Now, after much behind-the-scenes legal wrangling, the stop work order has been lifted and the tower is several floors on its way to its full unabashed glory.

At the Crest of Carnegie Hill, DDG's 180 East 88th Street Dares to Break the Mold

At the Crest of Carnegie Hill, DDG's 180 East 88th Street Dares to Break
the Mold

Quote:
One of the most eagerly awaited skyscrapers is 180 East 88th Street, an exceptional 48-unit condo on the rise in Carnegie Hill. Decidedly different from the glass towers multiplying across Manhattan,
the 32-floor building will be wrapped in hand-laid Kolumba bricks
punctuated by 9’x9’ windows and concrete catenary arches at its base,
waist, and crown.

The war on skyscrapers continues, but it's a losing one.

Pols and community groups sue DDG to block UES project
Lawsuit claims developer exploited zoning code to achieve condo's height and design



February 09, 2018


Quote:
A coalition of community organizations and elected officials on the Upper East Side are filing a lawsuit to block DDG’s 32-story tower at 180 East 88th Street.

The suit argues that DDG achieved the height and design of its luxury condominium tower by exploiting a loophole in the city’s zoning code, according to Crain’s. The developer broke ground on the project in 2015, and opposition from community groups heated up the next year, as locals complained about DDG creating a new lot along East 88th Street enabling it to change the building’s shape.

The Department of Buildings stopped construction at the site, but when DDG changed the design months later, the agency reversed its decision and allowed construction to continue, a move it stands by despite the new lawsuit.

This is stunning and destined to overtake The Clare as my favorite building on the UES.
