Last week, the state appeals court dismissed an appeal, effectively greenlighting the American Museum of Natural History’s plans for a new educational center on the Upper West Side. According to West Side Rag, the removal of trees outside of the Museum has already begun in preparation for the 230,000-square-foot Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation. The Gilder Center will include new exhibition and learning spaces with state-of-the-art technology and access to the Museum’s world-class collections. The five-story addition to the Museum is designed by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects with Ralph Appelbaum Associates designing the exhibition experiences, and the Reed Hilderbrand firm responsible for the landscape architecture.
Scaffolding for 250 West 81st Street on the Upper West Side has been completely dismantled. The exterior limestone and brick curtain wall at the corner of West 81st Street and Broadway fully stands out in the sunlight. The 209-foot-tall residential tower is designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects and developed by Alchemy Properties while Stribling Marketing Associates manages sales. The 18-story structure yields 31 condominiums, averaging 2,700 square feet apiece. There are two- to five-bedroom units with prices ranging from $3.8 million to $15.7 million. The site is located two blocks from the 1 train at the 79th Street subway station.
Construction at 200 Amsterdam Avenue is quickly rising above the surrounding rooftops. When topped out, the 668-foot-tall residential development will hold the title of tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side until Extell‘s 775-foot tall tower at 50 West 66th Street tops out. The building is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, which was responsible for The Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards. SJP Properties is the developer while CetraRuddy is the lead interior designer. The 283,000-square-foot project, which sits at the southwestern corner of Amsterdam Avenue and West 70th Street, will yield 112 residential units.
