YIMBY initially reported on 350 West 71st Street, on the Upper West Side, when plans were filed in 2016. Now, we have the first glimpse of the final product. DNA Development is responsible for the project which is converting and combining two properties, one of which is a landmarked single-room-occupancy hotel, into far more spacious condominiums.
There are no plans to modify the total size of the structures which, when combined, come in at a total of 63,631 square feet divided between seven floors. With a planned total of 38 new residences in the project, the average size comes to 1,674 square feet. When the building was an SRO, each room was approximately 280 square feet; with current planning, average unit sizes increase nearly six-fold.
With residences ranging from two to four bedrooms and prices starting at $1.725 million, the property is priced competitively for this submarket. Seven units in the building will also feature private outdoor space, and a teaser website has also launched alongside YIMBY’s reveal of the new renderings.
The building is slated to include a host of amenities, and will feature a full staff with a 24-hour attended lobby, as well as a library, fitness center, bicycle storage, and children’s playroom. The project will also feature a landscaped roof terrace, complete with a grill area.
The project has been designed by DXA Studio, and the entirety of the original facade has been integrated and preserved into the redevelopment.
The building’s location puts it only one block south of Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial Park, and just east of Riverside Park. The 72nd Street Broadway subway station is also situated 2 blocks east of the property, and offers service on the 1, 2, and 3 lines.
Sales are expected to begin in March, with Stribling Marketing Associates responsible exclusively for the site’s sales and marketing.
