The luxurious yet comfortable Upper East Side has long been the most sought-after area for New Yorkers to call home. In the past, it may have been difficult to find vacant apartments or townhouses to buy or rent in that area, but lately, new developments have been springing up to give people more opportunities.

Yet another new residential will be replacing a 100,000-square-foot rental at 40 East End that currently rises six stories and holds 40 apartments. Construction on the 18-story condominium began last fall of 2017 and has just recently topped out.

The architect behind the project is Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel and it was designed by Deborah Berke Partners, who plan to bring 29 luxury apartments to the area ranging from two-to-five bedrooms in size. So far, not much has been revealed about the condominiums, but a few of the homes will be duplexes and some will span an entire floor, while the penthouse will be a triplex and have its own private rooftop.

Amenities will include a fitness center, a climate-controlled storage room, a catering kitchen available to all residents, a game room, a resident's lounge, indoor parking spaces, a 24-hour doorman, and a courtyard.

This condominium will be located just a block from the East River, offering views of the water from nearly all the homes. Best of all, residents will get to live in the coveted Upper East Side neighborhood, near a host of museums, iconic restaurants, numerous boutiques, and just a short walk away from Central Park.
