Property owner Feil Organization is now clearing out a majority of the 14-story, 80,000-square-foot commercial building at 140 West 57th Street, along “Billionaires’ Row” in Midtown. The third through 14th floors are possibly getting a condominium conversion, the New York Post reported, although plans are not yet confirmed. The space could also get an office renovation or a hotel conversion, but plans for apartments have already been drawn up and are apparently further along. The three-level Morton Williams supermarket, located along the street level, will be unaffected. The property is an individual landmark, which means any exterior alterations that go into a renovation or conversion must be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

  1. Under rule of LPC property with calls 14-story, that deal to condominium conversion all.

  2. This building was originally designed as artists studio, If you look at the outer window bays each is two floors high. This was to give a large studio space on one side of the apartment and two floors of living space on the other. Childe Hassam, noted American Impressionist, lived here.
