Anbau Enterprises is officially moving forward on 41 West 23rd Street, in Chelsea, over three years after the site’s re-design passed the Landmark Preservation Commission. Located half a block away from the Flatiron Building and less than two avenues away from four different subway stations on 23rd Street, the lot has been expected to yield something interesting for about a decade, which means actual progress is very welcome.
YIMBY has an update on construction for 207 West 79th Street, a 13-story residential building on the Upper West Side. Our last report on the site’s progress in September of 2016 showed construction had just reached the seventh floor, with no façade installation underway. The site is just an Avenue away from the American Natural History Museum, and two Avenues away from Central Park. There is close access to the 1, 2, A, B, and C trains by foot.
The Upper East Side is no stranger to new luxury high-rise apartment buildings, but with the completion of Second Avenue’s Q train, they’re seemingly getting bigger. Now, 360 East 89th Street is nearly ready to open, as shown by the latest photos from Tectonic.
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.
The 13-story, 19-unit mixed-use building under construction at 207 West 79th Street, on the Upper West Side, has topped out. Photos of the structure can be seen posted to the YIMBY Forums. The structure measures 71,578 square feet and rises 139 feet to its roof, or 158 feet including the bulkhead. Retail space will total 5,194 square feet on the ground floor, and the residential units, which will be condominiums, above should average 2,887 square feet apiece. Anbau Enterprises is the developer and Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible for the architecture. Completion is expected in the fall of 2017.
