YIMBY has new photographs of the completed exterior of 250 West 81st Street, as well as interior views of the amenities at the 18-story Upper West Side condominium building. Designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects with Hill West Architects as the architect of record, Alchemy Properties is the developer of the site, and Stribling Marketing Associates is managing sales for the building’s 31 condominiums, which average 2,700 square feet apiece. Sales are in partnership with Alchemy Properties and Stribling Marketing Associates.
250 West 81st Street
Scaffolding for 250 West 81st Street on the Upper West Side has been completely dismantled. The exterior limestone and brick curtain wall at the corner of West 81st Street and Broadway fully stands out in the sunlight. The 209-foot-tall residential tower is designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects and developed by Alchemy Properties while Stribling Marketing Associates manages sales. The 18-story structure yields 31 condominiums, averaging 2,700 square feet apiece. There are two- to five-bedroom units with prices ranging from $3.8 million to $15.7 million. The site is located two blocks from the 1 train at the 79th Street subway station.
Since its founding in 1990, Kenneth Horn’s Alchemy Properties has acquired over two million square feet of residential space in New York City. During those 28 years, Mr. Horn has personally overseen the sales of $2 billion of real estate, all with a staff of about thirty people. With a full slate of new developments in the works, YIMBY sat down with Ken to discuss the firm’s current plans.
YIMBY has the latest on progress at the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed 250 West 81st Street, on the Upper West Side, which has finally topped-out at 209 feet, right on schedule. The new building fits neatly in the neighborhood, with a myriad of classical sensibilities embellishing the façade as well as the interiors. Alongside the topping-out, a slew of new interior renderings have also been revealed.
Earlier this fall, YIMBY checked in on the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed 250 West 81st Street as it was just climbing above street level, at West 81st Street and Broadway, on the Upper West Side. New renderings for the project have since appeared, giving a substantially better view of what the classically-minded new development will look like, and the pace of construction has also picked up, as per the latest photos from Chused.
