Scoping Out The Views From 13-Story 207W79, Under Construction On The Upper West Side

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 74-foot-tall development would rise between 89th and 90th Avenues, a block west of Rufus King Park and across the street from the monolithic Queens Civil Court building. The building would have 97 apartments squeezed into 64,509 square feet of residential space, for average units measuring a rental-sized 665 square feet.
