UES Construction Porn: Brompton and Lucida

A little bit of construction porn for all the UES real estate fans out there. The Brompton and The Lucida are competing to be the new condo diva of 86th st. These two lux condos are going up only one block apart from eachother. We checked in on them to see how they are shaping up.

The Lucida

They've dug deep for the foundation of The Lucida. Counting the layers of scalfolding in the pit, it seems to be about 7-stories down. Room for underground parking perhaps?









The Brompton

Based on construction progress alone, The Brompton has a clear lead in this race. Crews are finishing up the 6th floor of concrete.


Does anybody know what's going up on the NE corner of 85th and 2nd Avenue (above and around Panorama)? I live in one of the buildings on 86th St. that backs up to the construction. They are demolishing all of the surrounding buildings. They start every morning at 7am on the dot with chainsaws, throwing bricks and glass down 3 flights.

Yes. See http://yorkvillenyc.blogspot.com/2007/02/unique-l-shaped-property-on-85th-and.html

Thank you. That's a shame. I'm glad I'm getting out of the neighborhood.

Can't wait to see the finished building. Hope to see more updates soon. :)
