Construction is seven stories above street level on the 13-story, 19-unit mixed-use building under development at 207 West 79th Street, on the Upper West Side. The latest photo was posted by a user on the YIMBY Forums. The most recent building permits indicate the project will eventually measure 71,578 square feet and rise 158 feet, including the bulkhead. There will be 5,194 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The residential units above, which will be condominiums, will range from two- to five-bedrooms, averaging 2,887 square feet apiece. Anbau Enterprises is the developer and Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design, both inside and out. Completion is expected in the fall of 2017.
Last week, Anbau Enterprises held a groundbreaking ceremony for their planned 13-story, 19-unit mixed-use project at 207 West 79th Street, on the Upper West Side. Foundation work appears to have completed, which means the ceremony likely indicates the project will soon begin its ascent skyward. The latest building permits show that the project will encompass 71,568 square feet. There will be 5,194 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by 19 condominiums averaging a spacious 2,887 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, private residential storage space, laundry facilities, and storage for 10 bikes. Morris Adjmi Architects is designing the exterior and interior spaces. The project was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in October of 2014. The project required the LPC’s approval since it sits within the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District. Completion is expected in 2017.
YIMBY last reported on the 34-story, 84-unit mixed-use building under development at 360 East 89th Street, on the corner of First Avenue on the Upper East Side, when it was six stories above street level in January. The 377-foot-tall, 212,325-square-foot tower, dubbed Citizen360, has since topped out, as seen in photos by our friend Tectonic. It will feature 3,265 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by 84 condominium units, ranging from one- to four-bedrooms. The apartments should average a spacious 2,175 square feet apiece. Amenities include a 22-car automated parking garage, a residential lounge, a fitness center, bike storage space, private residential storage, a children’s playroom, an entertainment suite, and laundry facilities. Anbau Enterprises is the developer, while SHoP Architects is behind the design and architecture. Clodagh is responsible for the design of the interiors. Occupancy is expected in early 2017.
Anbau Enterprises has spent the last two years securing Landmarks approval and a rezoning for a planned cantilevering condo building at 39 West 23rd Street. Now the developer has finally filed plans for the 25-story, mixed-use project between 5th and 6th avenues in the Flatiron District.
Late last year, Anbau Enterprises offered to pay roughy $75 million to demolish a single-story retail building and build a 40-story residential tower at 220 Cadman Plaza West, in Brooklyn Heights. Even after the developer increased the bid to $130 million last week, meaning a $150,000 payout for each shareholder, the shareholder residents of Whitman Owner Corp. at 75 Henry Street voted against the offer, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. That means the board will not investigate the development plans and the one-story retail building along Pineapple Walk will remain as is.
