GKV Architects has unveiled proposals to renovate an existing rental property at 240 West 73rd Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Known as The Tempo, the building is located in the West End-Collegiate Historic District and could eventually be renamed “The Penelope.”
Upper West Side
Local architects Groves & Co. has proposed the expansion of an elegant, historic townhouse located at 42 West 94th Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Given the property’s location within the picturesque Central Park West Historic District, the design team must gain approvals from the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.
UPDATE: A source has informed YIMBY that the depicted design was created for the site’s previous owners by Ennead Architects, and is now out of date. The actual plans are unlikely to include a residential component.
After vainly attempting to stymy the rise of 200 Amsterdam Avenue through multiple frivolous lawsuits, the residents of the hulking and monolithically anti-urban Lincoln Towers may soon be reaping just karmic desserts, with an even taller neighbor now apparently in the works on their southern periphery. Preliminary renderings have been found for Taconic’s planned two-towered development at 125 West End Avenue, and if the first image of the project is any indicator, the larger of its two towers could steal 200 Amsterdam’s mantle as the tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side.
Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties will soon launch sales for a new collection of condominium homes at 212 West 93rd Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The building is designed by architects ODA with interiors by GRADE New York.
Permits have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building at 2686 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

Developer Toll Brothers is listed as the owner behind the applications.
