Certes Partners and United Management Corp. have acquired the six-story building at 214-218 West 95th Street, on the Upper West Side, for $26.5 million, according to Commercial Observer. In July, YIMBY reported on filings for a 10-story, 18-unit residential building (by the same developers) to replace the six-story former SRO at 206 West 95th Street. Now, the assemblage boasts 85,000 square feet of development potential, possibly in the form of an 18-story building. RKTB Architects filed for the initial permits, but Cetra Ruddy has been hired to design.
Much of the Upper West Side is frozen in time by historic districts, but every once in a while, a developer manages to snag an older property in a non-landmarked piece of the neighborhood. New building applications were filed earlier today to erect a 10-story building at 206 West 95th Street, half a block from the 96th Street station on the 1, 2 and 3 lines.
