Developer Fetner Properties recently unveiled renderings for a 23-story residential building with micro-units at 266 West 96th Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Located between Broadway and West End Avenue, the development would be built on a lot currently occupied by a former MTA electric substation.

According to a proposal Fetner submitted to the city earlier this year, the development would have 171 total apartments with 91 regular-sized units and 80 micro-units, ranging from 290 to 340 square feet apiece. The smaller apartments would be marketed to seniors and 68 units would be permanent affordable housing units. All residents would have free access to amenities including the health club.

Renderings show a two-tone masonry building with a setback after the 15th story. The ground level appears to have double-height windows and retail space. It unclear if there is any communal outdoor space.

The property is part of the city’s brownfield cleanup program as a result of the abandoned MTA substation and the possibility of hazardous materials on the site.

Last Wednesday, the land use and housing committees of Community Board 7 voted in approval of plans for 266 West 96th Street, as reported by the West Side Rag. The Fetner proposal will go before the full Community Board 7 on December 3 and then before the borough president at a later date.

    Nice project, nice design.

  3. So are they reusing the old façade or is that just a close homage depicted in the rendering?

  4. I’ve wished for years that the old sub station he built out for a physical arts center and circus school. It has soaring 30
    Foot ceilings and was built to hold tons of weight.
    Tearing down another historical building to put up ANOTHER high rise???
    I miss the days when these kind of old city owned buildings would be sold to artists for a buck.

  5. Any idea what the PSF will be for the 3-4 bedroom residences ?

    Thanks,

    Chris
