Deck going up for The Promontory

Construction is underway for a second-story deck that will be part of The Promontory, the new restaurant, bar, and concert venue coming to 1539 E. 53rd Street.

Crews recently completed pouring the concrete slab for the deck. Wooden beams currently erected at the site will support this phase of the deck installation and will be removed afterward. Crews also are working on a parking lot for the building, which also houses Akira and CorePower Yoga.

The Promontory, a partnership between Longman & Eagle operators Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden, is expected to open in the coming months.
