Touring the Under Construction Condo Conversion at 212 Fifth Avenue, Flatiron District

The Neo-Gothic high-rise at 212 Fifth Avenue has occupied a wedge-shaped plot just north of Madison Square Park since 1912. It once held furniture and garment manufacturers, who had their offices on the upper floors and massive showrooms on the lower ones. Now, Madison and Thor Equities are converting the 24-story building to condos, and they’re restoring the landmarked limestone facade and cornices in the process. YIMBY recently toured the property and got a close-up look at the restoration.

Two-Building, 21-Unit Residential Project Filed At 16 West 18th Street, Flatiron District

C.A. White Inc., based in New Haven, Conn., has filed applications for two residential buildings on a 27-foot-wide block-thru lot at 21 West 17th Street and 16 West 18th Street, in the Flatiron District. The northern one would stand 13 stories tall and have 12 residential units, each averaging 1,863 square feet apiece. The southern one would be a 10-story, nine-unit structure with average residential units of 1,882 square feet, both indicative of condos. Morris Adjmi Architects is the applicant of record. Two- and three-story structures on the 18th and 17th Street ends, respectively, must first be demolished. Both addresses are in the Ladies Mile Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission would have to approve both the demolitions and new construction.
