When fully complete, “Dahlia,” the selected name for 20-story building, will contain 38 condominium residences ranging from two to four bedroom layouts. Building amenities will include a 5,100 square foot elevated park, a fitness center and yoga studio, both bike and private storage, private parking spaces for purchase, a communal lounge and gaming areas, and a children’s playroom.

An unspecified retail component will also occupy the building.

“Dahlia’s symbolic topping off marks a significant milestone for the Upper West Side. After over a decade of stagnant new construction along the Broadway corridor north of West 86th Street, the neighborhood is now experiencing the long-awaited arrival of modern new development product with Dahlia at the helm,” stated Shlomi Reuveni, President and CEO of Reuveni Real Estate. “We are thrilled to be a part of the most exciting new project coming to the Upper West Side and look forward to launching in the coming weeks.”

Reuveni Real Estate is the dedicated brokerage firm for the residences, where occupancy is expected in Spring 2020.

  1. The “Dahlia” was constructed on the site of the Camden SRO and and parking garage. Both were much needed in the neighborhood. While the development company calls the Camden SRO troubled, it most certainly was not. The Camden SRO was perfectly good affordable rent stabilized housing that could have served many New Yorkers well. The problem was that the owners stuffed it with homeless people to make big profits from city contracts instead of properly offering it up for rentals to the public as the law requires. When those contracts dried up (for whatever reason) they tore down the beautiful prewar Camden to make room for this slap trap “Dahlia” that they put up like Lego in about two years. HPD, in its usual fashion, allowed the tear down through its mostly unknown and total BS “Certificate of No Harassment” program.

    Similarly, the old parking garage provided much needed affordable parking for residents of the neighborhood.

    In putting up the “Dahlia”, the owners ruined the lives of the surrounding neighborhood with noisy construction for several years, starting at 7 AM with jack hammering and drilling and whatnot, sometimes also on Saturdays. They also closed down 95th Street and took up valuable parking. The “”Dahlia” is so incredibly expensive that it will be housing only for the wealthiest of people.

    What happened to the former SRO residents who lost their housing or maybe didn’t even know their rights? Who knows. The building is built in their blood and unhappiness.
