Full demolition permits have been filed for a couple of two-story buildings at 2328-2330 Broadway on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The office buildings were built in 1910, and cumulatively yield 18,870 square feet of space. Plans for the lot are underway by developers Welltower and Hines, which include luxury housing for seniors.

After purchasing the site for $61 million, the pair plan to develop a 17-story assisted living home with medical facilities, a rooftop garden spa, and an in-house restaurant for residents. The partnering developers Hines and Welltower are also responsible for a similar project at 677 Lexington Avenue in Midtown East. Both projects are being designed by SLCE Architects.

Located at the corner of West 85th Street and Broadway, the proposed building will be one block south of the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. James Patterson of Ancora Engineering PLLC is listed as the applicant of record.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: You are constant on the development, and demolition permits filed now have seen by me. (Hello YIMBY)

  2. I like that this blog promotes growth and change but that was my pharmacy. I went there all the time. It was one of the last places you could do that wasn’t a Duane Reade. It was also affordable. It closed abruptly just so more luxury housing could go up. That just doesn’t feel worth it to the neighborhood. I don’t mean to say that the landlord shouldn’t have been able to sell but I wish there’d been a more thoughtful way to keep a needed neighborhood amenity.

    The corner used to be various restaurants in the 1980s; none of them stayed there very long. Also next door was the restaurant Szechuan Broadway, and I think maybe the Otomanelli restaurant? I have been publishing (at Thought Catalog) diaries of the 1980s, when I lived part of the year right around that corner, and I’ve tried to find photos of Broadway in the 1970s and 1980s with almost no success. Even finding mentions of stores and restaurant names on Google, Google Books (old issues of New York and Spy magazines), The New York Times, (The Daily News), The Columbia Spectator sometimes don’t result in any hits. It’s made me realize how much of New York City really can totally disappear. What does Google do with old photos of the street when the stores and buildings change?

    There also used to be a freestanding clock near the corner, put there by a restaurant which lasted about a year.

  5. Absolutely horrible. This development is totally out of scale with the buildings surrounding it. Appalled that there was no community board meeting regarding the scale of this. And furthermore, an affordable neighborhood stalwart (Price Wise) taken away so that 1% seniors who can pay $25,000 a month can live in this facility.

    • In 2012 the city and your UWS community board approved the “Special Enhanced Commercial District” that spans much of the Broadway corridor allowing project 10.0 FAR as-of-right with bonuses for community facility. This project is entirely as-of-right. The city did not need to hold a community board meeting with regard to the scale of this project. Your feelings of being appalled have no Bering on what is legally allowed to be built here. Why does living in the neighborhood since the 70’s give you any say in what is best for the city?

      Why be informed when you can use your feelings as facts?

  6. Jeez even one-percenter seniors are abetting the blight of NYC neighborhoods.
