Reveal For Seven-Story, Five-Unit Mixed-Use Project At 207 West 75th Street, Upper West Side

Back in July of 2014, YIMBY brought you renderings of the proposed 14-story, 10-unit residential building at 207 West 75th Street, on the Upper West Side. The project required a special permit from the Board of Standards and Appeals, but the developer was unsuccessful in obtaining a variance and the site was eventually unloaded for $13.25 million in 2015. The new developer, Opal Holdings, has since filed applications to expand the existing two-story building into a seven-story, five-unit mixed-use one. Real Estate Weekly now reports a $14.8 million construction loan has been secured for the 20,000-square-foot project. There will be 5,000 square feet of retail on the ground and cellar levels, and full-floor apartments beginning on the second floor. The sixth and seventh floors will contain a five-bedroom duplex penthouse featuring a terrace. Jeffrey Cole Architects is designing.

Although the latest reports indicated a “seven star hotel,” final plans are still unknown. Given the site’s Billionaires’ Row location and proximity to Central Park, whatever gets built will most likely be very tall, and very expensive.

A church-to-residential conversion project in Downtown Brooklyn looks like its getting close to finished, at least on the outside. Our friend Tectonic sent us some photos of 200 Nassau Street and the façade is almost entirely in place. There’s plenty of work still to be done at the ground level and a little on the top of the structure. Otherwise, things are looking good.
