Closings will soon begin at 555 West End Avenue, a landmarked Beaux Arts building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Following the conversion of the early 20th century structure for residential use, it now comprises 13 condominium homes.
555 West End Avenue
In May, YIMBY brought you news of a residential conversion at 555 West End Avenue, on the Upper West Side, which, at the time, was denied the green light at its LPC presentation. Curbed now has news of the project’s approval, which received minor revisions. Cary Tamarkin is developing and designing the conversion of the six-story building, which will eventually be expanded by one floor to have 12 to 15 units.
The conversion of 555 West End Avenue from the former St. Agnes School for Girls to a residential building with 12 to 15 units is well on its way to approval, but not there quite yet. The Landmarks Preservation Commission liked a lot of the proposal presented on Tuesday, but wants less visibility when it comes to the rooftop additions, particularly the mechanical equipment.
Curbed reports that Cary Tamarkin is planning a residential conversion and expansion of 555 West End Avenue, a six-story structure on the Upper West Side, at West 87th Street. The building was acquired for $50 million last October, and Tamarkin is also designing the project, which will be presented before the LPC later this month.
