One of the biggest new additions to Carnegie Hill since well, Andrew Carnegie parked his mansion on Fifth Avenue, is 180 East 88th, a towering new condo building being developed, designed, constructed and managed by Joe McMillan’s DDG.

Come 2019, the team will deliver 48 pre-war-inspired residences unique to any product on or off the market. Among the most coveted units are the duplex residences, which feature nearly 30-foot-high ceilings and a custom-designed sculptural staircase. Last week, the team listed Residence 38 West, the last remaining duplex available in the building. From its lofty space to its wide-angle views above the city, this particular aerie undoubtedly rises to the occasion.

Residence 38 West is 3,794 square feet with four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths. The lower level holds the living spaces and the master suite, while the upper level has three other bedrooms and a laundry room.

Perched roughly 400 feet above the city, the home will be among the highest on the Upper East Side. The L-shaped layout presents unobstructed south and west views of Central Park and the Midtown skyline. Above is an exclusive image from the team showing how the home is an ideal roost to watch Manhattan grow.

The incredible great room anchors the southwest corner of the building. Nine-foot-tall tilt & turn Albertini Italian windows frame sunset views of Central Park.

Entertaining areas have custom-designed plaster cove ceilings, wainscoting, picture rails and 7.5-inch wide Austrian White Oak flooring.

At the heart of the plan is the central dining space that has a double-height, 28’8″-high ceiling and is bound by park-facing exposure and a sculptural staircase.

The kitchen consumes the northern end of the lower level and has two exposures looking north to the George Washington Bridge and west to the park. Features include a center island with custom white-lacquered cabinetry by Molteni & C Dada, Statuario marble countertops and a full suite of Gaggenau appliances.

The master bedroom has an en-suite windowed master bath with radiant heat flooring, silver travertine slabs and mosaic tile accented walls. The master suite also has a 16-foot-long dressing room.

The building will offer a fully-attended lobby and DDG concierge services. Condos are perched above eight floors of amenities that include a fitness studio, double-height basketball court, soccer pitch, playroom designed in collaboration with the Children

LEADERS Magazine: What attracted you to the real estate industry?

Joe McMillan.: I was always fascinated by real estate, construction and development. I found myself working in the private equity and hedge fund businesses. Out of my personal account, I was investing in real estate. I was seeking a way to merge my interests.

Through various years and multiple processes, I determined the best way to merge the aspects of being an investor and a developer was to leave what I was doing and start a firm. Many years ago, I felt that visiting properties and walking onto construction sites was much more fulfilling than solely sitting in an office all day, every day.

PROFILEnyc had the exclusive opportunity to sit down with Joe McMillan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DDG, to discuss bringing green building and sustainable practices to New York City real estate. Joe and DDG have been behind major projects such as 12 Warren, 180 East 88th, and 41 Bond, amongst others, where they use innovative design solutions to improve the built environment, creating value for both stakeholders and the community at large. DDG is fully integrated to optimize value via both designing and building their developments. Learn what it takes to design and build sustainably in the fast paced streets of Manhattan:

PROFILEnyc Magazine: So few real estate developers are as fully-integrated as DDG when it comes to designing and developing your own projects, why do you think this is so rare? Why did DDG take it upon itself to be involved in both the architectural design and development?

Joe McMillan: It is really a multi-faceted answer. If you look at design, development, construction and the other business we are in, asset management and property management, and overall investment, they are all very separate and distinct skill sets. What most typical firms do is they focus on one of the aspects of development and one of the skill sets. We felt that it would be an incredible competitive advantage to be able to integrate various of those under one corporate umbrella. That is why we chose to do the development, the design, the construction and the asset management all in-house. Having those capabilities and the integration enables us to be more nimble. We can move faster. We can control more of the process and we can control more of the quality. In the end that falls out to the bottom line, so as investors we obtain a better margin and better quality product as a result.

PM: What is your background and how has it enabled you to build a fully-integrated real estate company?

JM: My background is private equity and I am an institutional investor. I spent a number of years as an investor who had a tremendous passion for real estate and the arts. When DDG was started, we built out a team that has very extensive depth along the investment side, from Wall Street firms like Morgan Stanley, Barclays, etc. We have institutional capabilities from development firms and have hired from Hines for one, and on the design side we have a very robust team of designers who are incredibly talented and design a lot of our projects. On the construction side we have hired out of Tishman, Turner, and others; on the hospitality side some members of our concierge team have been trained by the Four Seasons and other five star hotels, so we have the best in class in all the businesses that we operate in. This gives us a very deep set of capabilities in each aspect of our business. We go out, try to find the best and the brightest, bring them together as one team and try to push that as a platform.

PM: Let’s jump to 12 Warren where you chose to use a unique bluestone for the facade. Why did you make this choice? How has the reception been?

JM: The bluestone has been incredibly well-received. We first worked with bluestone as a company at 41 Bond, which was the inaugural project that we completed in 2012. It was the first project that we did as a company. There we used a much more rationalized contemplation of the stone. If you look at the brickwork it was very linear, it was in very regular patterns. The articulation is incredibly beautiful, but it was done differently than 12 Warren. If you look at Warren Street, we wanted to do something that was rough-hewn. The reason we went back to the bluestone is it was a very traditional material used in New York City construction in the late 1800s early 1900s. It was used less over time as concrete, steel and glass became much more prevalent. We wanted something that went back to the roots of New York City. If you look at the Tribeca neighborhood, it is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. We thought the rough, organic texture was completely different. If you look just a couple of blocks away you have the World Trade Center towers and various other developments that have a lot of glass. We wanted to do something that was really an opposite reflection of what was going up. We wanted to show something that was much more traditional, although the final contemplation brought it into a slightly different light as well.

PM: What differentiates the design and style both from an architectural perspective and development perspective between the different neighborhoods of Manhattan? Where is DDG’s favorite neighborhood to build in?

JM: Every project is different and every neighborhood is different. I would say that every neighborhood has its opportunities and every neighborhood has its challenges. I think that you really need to respect the individual neighborhoods and look at them in their context. Every building needs to be contextual. There are certain neighborhoods that lend themselves towards high-rise, and certain neighborhoods that lend themselves to low-rise and mid-rise; some are more traditional and some are more contemporary. We send our design and development team into a neighborhood and they will walk block by block and take a myriad of photos so we have samples. We will come back to the office and we will sit and go through a reflective line:

With glass and steel towers dotting many a street corner, New York has never appeared more like an urban jungle. Architecture, it seems, has only gotten more futuristic, leaving a shiny, metallic city in its wake that feels worlds apart from what it was even decades ago.
Stately stone buildings and homes, though, still offer visions of grandeur and recall a different era of sophistication. A time when skilled masonry work and a handcrafted aesthetic signified utter luxury.

Not at all forgotten, a trend is slowly taking root among some of today’s developers and a return to classic building materials is making a comeback. From handmade brick to elegant limestone, these buildings aim to provide the appeal of a pre-war building, but with all of the comforts and conveniences in today’s luxury homes. Take a peek at the dream-worthy homes below to see the latest interpretations of the classics.

Projects include: 145 President, The Kent, 211 Schermerhorn, 20 East End Avenue, 180 East 88th and 150 Wooster.

180 East 88th

Situated in the Upper East Side’s coveted Carnegie Hill neighborhood, 180 East 88th is a striking condominium being developed, designed, constructed and managed by DDG. The company’s first Uptown project, 180 East 88th is inspired by the pre-war boom in high-rise masonry construction in New York during the 1920s – 1940s and DDG’s design team paid homage to the lost art of traditional craftsmanship while maintaining a modern aesthetic. The property’s facade features nearly 600,000 handmade bricks from Petersen Tegl in Denmark. These distinctive bricks, which include the elegant, elongated Kolumba style, possess a thoroughly unique texture and color palette that reflect their handmade quality. The artisanal nature of 180 East 88th’s facade not only provides a welcome contrast to many of today’s steel and glass towers, but also provides a point of resonance with many of the pre-war buildings dotting the Upper East Side, while maintaining a modern twist.

READ MORE

A host of art deco-influenced details are found in the design of this condominium building under construction in New York’s Carnegie Hill, including patterned grey brickwork, vaulted terraces and brass frames.

DDG aimed to reference the masonry high-rises constructed in New York between the 1920s and 1940s, many of which were built in the art deco architectural style, in the design.

The new tower will be clad with 594,443 handmade bricks, which will be set in wooden molds and then fired at varying temperatures to give different shades of grey.

“These distinctive bricks, which include the elegant, elongated Kolumba style, possess a thoroughly unique texture and color palette that reflect their handmade quality,” said DDG in a statement.

Renderings of the 50-story building show that the brickwork will be arranged in horizontal bands. Concrete will be used on the northern wall of the main tower in a chevron pattern, and will also form vertical banding to mark the penthouse at the top.

Huge vaulted openings around the three-story residence’s private terrace will offer panoramic views across Central Park, the East River, the Hudson River and Downtown. Smaller arches will also be featured part-way down the tower.
The tapered columns of the vaults will provide a framework for planting, while glass railings will be detailed with brass balustrades to match the window frames.

The skyscraper will include a total of 48 residences, ranging from lofts to five bedrooms and full floors, in addition to the duplexes and the penthouse. A key feature of the homes will be high ceilings that will rise to 14

As glass and steel buildings become increasingly prevalent, cities are looking shinier and more futuristic than ever. And while many architects prefer this ultra-modern aesthetic, a handful are going back to the basics, using handmade brick and textured stone to mirror classic buildings from bygone days.

Projects include: Lovejoy Wharf, Arte by Antonio Citterio, The Kent, 145 President and 180 East 88th.

180 East 88th


180 East 88th Street, a 50-story Upper East Side tower designed, developed, constructed, and managed by DDG, features a nearly 600,000-brick exterior handmade by Petersen Tegl in Denmark. Prices for the 48-unit building, which offers everything from lofts to five-bedroom units, start at around $3.2 million.

Being a designer is certainly challenging. Ditto being a developer. But some firms manage both to design and to develop.

DDG sometimes goes even further, constructing and managing its properties as well. For 180 East 88th, DDG is throwing some curves into the design. Arches will evoke both caves and cathedrals in the lobby, then reappear at the pinnacle of the facade, fronting penthouse terraces. While the handmade bricks for the exterior are imported from Denmark, and the oversize windows are Italian, the views are genuine New York.

DDG recently filed permits for a new development on the Upper East Side at 180 East 88th Street. The 521-foot, 50-story tower will have 182,995 square feet of residential space, crazily spread across just 48 units, which New York YIMBY helpfully points out is an average of 3,500 square feet per unit. Each floor will also have 15-foot ceilings.

The site, which DDG bought last year for $70 million, sits on the corner of Third Avenue.
