Exterior work is approaching completion on 212 West 93rd Street, a 14-story condominium building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by Eran Chen, head of ODA, the 65,000-square-foot project is being developed by Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties, which acquired the 9,000-square-foot plot from the Shaare Zedek Congregation for $34.3 million. The property will yield 20 units designed by GRADE New York and marketed by The Lindsey Stokes Team, a division of real estate brokerage Compass. Homes will range from one- to four-bedroom layouts with some full-floor penthouses. The property will also contain the Shaare Zedek Synagogue, which will have its own separate entrance on the first floor.
