Construction has topped out on 15 West 96th Street, a 22-story residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Sackman Enterprises, the 312-foot-tall building will yield 17 residential units. Cavan Builders Corporation is the general contractor for the property, which is located between Central Park West and Amsterdam Avenue.
Work proceeded steadily on the reinforced concrete superstructure since our last update in January, when the building had yet to reach the lower setback. Now the structure has reached its pinnacle and stands prominently over its neighbors. The outer walls and insulation layer for the podium is underway, and metal frame studs are being installed on the floors above.
Renderings show the tower clad in light-colored stone panels with a grid of large windows and a multi-story podium with high ceilings. There will likely be one apartment per floor on most of the lower levels and some duplex units on the upper stories. Residential amenities will include a fitness center, a children’s playroom, bicycle storage, and a lounge. The closest subways are the B and C trains at the 96 Street station, as well as the 1, 2, and 3 trains along Broadway to the west. Central Park is a very short walk to the east and will be clearly visible from the tower itself.
The completion date for 15 West 96th Street is stated on site for spring 2023.
