  • New Developments in Court Square By Lara Milbauer | September 08, 2014

  • New Developments Carrying Out Pre-war Legacy By Laura Simmons | October 12, 2012

The Upper East Side is definitely holding true to its history by birthing two high-end residential towers on East 79th Street. These pre-war buildings make New York City the attraction it is. What’s better than having the best of both worlds? With that in mind, it would make sense that pre-war residential buildings are the most desirable for Manhattanites, and so, the developers on the Upper East Side may be onto something.

Clearly, this is no small project and will gradually create massive trenches in order to plant water mains that could range anywhere from 30 to 48 inches. Over the next five years, construction will occur in phases of 6 to 18 months; sewers need to be replaced and all streets in the area will have to be uprooted gradually. At the end of the project, Hell’s Kitchen ‘s water mains should be able to receive water directly from upstate in a new and efficient system that will replace the old decayed tunnels.
