ARCHITECT Karl Fisher has been tapped to design a new Upper East Side condominium.
Wonder Works picked the noted New York City architect to design its luxury 21-story building at 302 East 96th Street.
“We hired Fischer because we want this building to reflect the ultimate high-end design to serve an underserved market with affordable luxury,” said Eric Brody, principal of Wonder Works.
The development team includes a partnership with Daniel Figotin’s Fimida Enterprises, Daniel Minkowitz’s Mink Development and Forbes Development.
“The project is going to stand out in this neighborhood where there is a high demand for new condo construction,” said Figotin.
The penthouse at the newly restored 2ND7TH, a collection of four floor-through condos in Park Slope, is in contract.

Once home to a popular pub, the property at 187 7th Avenue sat in a state of disrepair for many years. Sugar Hill, working with New Amsterdam Design Associates, has restored the brick façade and created a custom lobby gateway to the four luxury homes.
Prices for remaining residences start at $3.2 million. Occupancy is slated for fall of 2015.
