In a neighborhood that is traditionally modestly scaled, 180 East 88th Street is a tall building—the tallest residential building above 72nd Street on the Upper East Side, in fact. But it’s not a typical glass-and-steel skyscraper. Instead, this 46-residence tower from architectural firm DDG Partners channels timeless design styles—European, American, into a coherent architectural statement. The textural brick facade is Scandinavian-made but references prewar New York, while interiors blend luxury finishings from Italy, Germany, and Austria. If one note presides, it is art deco, seen in the archways at the base, middle, and top of the condominium development and in the vaulted lobby.

DDG Partners’ presentation of 180 East 88th Street uses old world materials revitalized in a new, modern way. The tower is wrapped in Kolumba bricks handmade by Denmark’s Petersen Tegl, with a distinctive herringbone pattern on the north side. A dramatic, art deco-inspired bronze gated archway and private garden lead to the lobby, with its arched ceilings. The building vaults toward the future. As the tallest building north of 72nd Street, it represents a new chapter in the area’s architectural history.

Known for its designer shops and designer-clad residents, the Upper East Side has an elegant and refined vibe that feels somewhat removed from the frenetic energy of lower Manhattan. Here you’ll find Museum Mile—the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the Neue Galerie, among others—and Central Park, as well as some of Manhattan’s most elite private schools.
Forty-six luxury condominium residences, ranging from studios to five bedrooms, echo the architecture’s stylistic mix and homage to art and design history. Ceiling heights range from 14 to 28 feet, windows stand nine feet tall, entryways feature oval-shaped galleries, and great rooms have picture rails. Herringbone hardwood floors, imported from Austria, reference the brick herringbone pattern on the exterior north wall. Molteni & C Dada-designed kitchens have Italian Statuario marble slab countertops and Gaggenau appliances, while silver travertine and brass fixtures by Fantini make master bathrooms feel modern but warm.
An elegant gated entrance, a domed lobby with a fireplace, and eight floors of amenities, including a basketball court and wine tasting room and cellar, complete the offerings at this intimately scaled Upper East Side tower.
