Reveal for 540 Hudson Street, West Village Residential Development

Scoping Out The Views From 13-Story 207W79, Under Construction On The Upper West Side

An iconic Upper West Side hotel has a new neighbor. Construction is proceeding full steam ahead at 13-story-tall 207W79, and YIMBY stopped by the work site last week to see what’s what. YIMBY took a tour of 207W79, the 13-story, 19-unit condominium building under construction at 207 West 79th Street, on the Upper West Side. 207 West 79th Street is located immediately west of the Lucerne Hotel and less than a block from the 1 train. That’s on the north side of the street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District. Anbau Enterprises is developing the 19-unit condominium project.
