Set to rise 10 stories above Third Avenue and 82nd Street, construction at 1444 Third Avenue, developed by Nexus Development and DRK Third Avenue LLC, is progressing toward a spring 2017 completion date.

BuzzBuzzHome News visited the Upper East Side site last week to snap some photos of its progress so far.

The ODA-designed project is in its early stages of being built out. You can already see substantial digging to lay the foundation of the building. Water, electric and gas lines will be routed to accommodate two cellars — a cellar and sub-cellar.

1444 Third Avenue will offer nine luxury residential units with each unit occupying a single floor. All units will have four beds and 3.5 baths and the building will also feature a ground floor commercial space.

Residents will each have private entrances to their homes, with key ­locked elevators opening directly into their living spaces. Homes will feature 10 foot ceilings, open concept floorplans and hardwood floors. Every plan is ideal for both comfortable living and grand entertaining, with dining and kitchen areas that flow seamlessly together. The open kitchen will feature granite counters, top-of-the-line appliances and custom walnut wood cabinets.

The building will also feature a doorman, private storage and a common rooftop terrace.

Sales are expected to begin this summer.
