Excavation work is imminent at 269 West 87th Street, on the Upper West Side, where a 17-story, 39-unit residential building called The Chamberlain is under development. Photos reveal two excavators and a pile driver, among other materials, currently staged at the property. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 115,884 square feet and rise 215 feet to the top of its mechanical bulkhead.
Upper West Side
A lovely old house on the Upper West Side is headed for a conversion from eight-unit apartment building to single-family residence. However, that can’t happen until the plan get the stamp of approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and that did not happen at Tuesday’s public hearing on the matter.
Nearly a year ago, a new look was revealed for an Upper West Side development. Now, construction is well underway and YIMBY has the latest renderings for 207 West 75th Street.
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. Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible for the design, which didn’t win over the Landmarks Preservation Commission the first time around. With the initially proposed front balconies nixed, the LPC, in 2014, approved the design under construction today.
General Investment & Development Companies (GID) is rebranding their three-tower mixed-use development — between West 59th and 61st streets and Freedom Place South and Riverside Boulevard, in Lincoln Square (which is technically south of the Upper West Side) — as Waterline Square. Updated renderings have been released of the towers, per Curbed NY, each of which has been designed by different architects.
