DDG Parners site is updated (9/21/15)

Said's this is u/c, which I can believe.

Quote:
The scaffolding doesn’t lie: We’re in the midst of a serious condo-and-rental-building boom with buildings like DDG’s 180 East 88th Street and 12 Warren Street quickly rising. Over 3,600 permits have been filed for new residential structures in the past two years – to be precise, 2,394 in 2014 and 1,230 thus far this year, compared with 2,804 in total for 2009 and 2010. Talk of the 421(a) tax abatement expiring this past summer (it didn’t) may have spurred the recent frenzy, with much of it concentrated in the usual suspects of Hudson Yards, Downtown Brooklyn, and LIC. But new pockets of construction are emerging in unlikely corners, like the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island and the South Bronx. With an overwhelming number of projects to sift through, here’s a selection of some of the more notable arrivals, for magnates and non-magnates alike.

AG approves DDG’s $308M condo plan at 180 East 88th Street

Quote:
Joe McMillan’s DDG received the green light to begin selling apartments at its Upper East Side condo tower, which will aim for a total sellout of slightly more than $308 million.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office last month approved the Tribeca-based development firm’s condo offering plan for its under-construction tower at 180 East 88th Street. DDG is aiming for a total sellout of $308.2 million, a figure that also includes storage space in the building. Construction kicked off earlier this summer on the 32-story tower, which will feature 30-foot-high masonry arches and a brick façade imported from Denmark.

Along with the Zeckendorfs’ 520 Park Avenue, DDG’s building will be one of the tallest on the Upper East Side. The development firm paid $68 million, or $538 per buildable square foot, when it bought the site in 2013, making it one of the riskier development deals out there. DDG is also behind the XOCO, a nine-story condo building at 325 Broadway in Soho. It has four listings on the market, ranging from $2.6 million to $7.6 million.

DDG Gets $153M Loan For Carnegie Hill Resi Tower Construction

Quote:
M&T Bank provided Joe McMillan’s DDG Partners and real estate investment firm Global Holdings with a $153 million loan on a residential development in Carnegie Hill, Commercial Observer can first report.

Proceeds of the financing, which closed on Dec. 21, will be used to construct a 31-story condominium tower at 180 East 88th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues.

The latest filings with the New York City Department of Buildings indicate that the tower will house 48 condo units, and the reported sellout estimate for the project is $308.2 million.

Mr. McMillan’s Tribeca-based development firm acquired the site, along with 1558-1560 Third Avenue between East 87th and East 88th Streets, from Muss Development for roughly $70 million in 2013, as Commercial Observer previously reported. The parcels, which have connecting rear lots, housed two vacant five-story apartment buildings, which have since been razed. (It was not immediately clear when Global Holdings joined DDG as a partner).

Was checking the ddg site, and it looks like they updated it with a new rendering.

This building is really sexy. Too bad they didn't go for the 621 ft. version, (supposedly the developer thought that version had too small floorplates) but at 521 ft. still looks great.

Units Come Online for 180 East 88th Street, Tallest Building Between 72nd Street and Albany

In spite of a bristling array of glass spires erupting into our man-made mountain range and a global high-rise boom remodeling world cities into alien, cutting-edge anonymity, Manhattan stubbornly manages to appear tellurian. But Joseph McMillan’s integrated real estate investment and design company DDG has emerged as one firm genuinely committed to nurturing and progressing our architectural zoo of a city. Their past projects–345 Meatpacking, 41 Bond Street, XOCO 325, and 12 Warren– transcend common architectural styles, clad in a unique palette of materials and composed of an uncanny mashup of parts informed by context, nature, and technology.

That blank wall looks better than most facades with windows.

Developers Used a Four-Foot-Wide Lot to Build a Taller Upper East Side Tower

Quote:
The go-to move for building taller than zoning allows is snatching up some air rights, but at 180 East 88th Street in Yorkville, developer DDG Partners found an obscure loophole to increase their building’s height. Back in 2014, as the Times explains, DDG received approvals to slice off a four-foot-wide lot from the 30-foot-deep site. This became an official taxable lot, but because it provided a buffer between the building and the street, it allowed the building to avoid typical zoning for structures touching the street, rising to its 521-foot height (60 feet taller than would have been permitted otherwise) and having its entrance on Third Avenue. Now that the motive has become clear, local residents and elected officials are not happy, and adding fuel to the fire is the fact that DDG contributed at least $19,900 to Mayor Bill de Blasio.

When the Department of Buildings first issued permits for the project in March 2014, they allowed the developer to utilize the Third Avenue lot, as well as the adjacent lot on 88th Street because it was more than 30 feet deep, “a size that could be developed into a separate building.” But it was after this that the developer received approval for the new lot, which in plans is referred to as a “rear yard” that would be a garden for residents that’s open to the street.

Upper East Side Councilman Ben Kallos feels that this “unbuildable lot” may create a “dangerous precedent for a new and dangerous loophole.” Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer is also speaking out against the city’s approvals, saying “At first glance, this project looks like a prime example where the Department of Buildings has failed to enforce the law. The zoning here is what it is, not what the developer wishes it were.” In response, the DOB is reviewing its rulings, noting that they’re “auditing this project for compliance with the city’s construction codes and zoning resolution.”

City lifts stop-work order at DDG’s UES condo project

Quote:
The city’s Department of Buildings has lifted a stop-work order at DDG’s condominium project at 180 East 88th Street, a move that will enable the developer to resume construction on one of the Upper East Side’s tallest towers.

The DOB halted work at the planned 521-foot project in May, after neighbors and elected officials accused DDG of skirting zoning laws in order to build a taller building. DDG’s initial plans included a separate four-foot lot on East 88th Street, which critics said the developer was using to bypass building height restrictions in the neighborhood.

But DDG, led by Joseph McMillan, maintained that there are no maximum height limits in the neighborhood’s C1-9 zoning district. The developer subsequently proposed a 10-foot-wide lot along East 88th Street, allowing it to move the building’s entrance off the street and to add landscaping. The DOB has now approved those amended plans.

“We look forward to resuming construction and meeting our planned completion goal of 2018,” a representative from DDG said.


Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer had gone after DDG, accusing the developer of ignoring the neighborhood’s zoning to “illegally build a tower halfway to the moon.” A zoning expert, George Janes, who was hired by a local preservation group, told the Wall Street Journal that DDG’s maneuvers were some of the “the most amazing zoning gymnastics I have seen in a long time.”

Wow, cool building. Very different! The upside down Us in the middle look a little wonky to me, but I probably just need to get used to it. Our eyes are generally not used to seeing 'flair' in the middle of a building. Otherwise, I already love it and love the top.

Not sure if it's possible but maybe the thread name should be changed to 180 East 88th?
