Excavation and foundation work is moving along at 2551 Broadway, site of a 276,578-square-foot mixed-use building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Permits filed in early February list Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the architect of record and Tyler Workman under the Paragon JV Prop III LLC as the owner behind the applications for the project, which will rise 22 stories at the corner of 96th Street. The property will contain 130 residences spread across 215,866 square feet, for an average scope of 1,660 square feet, most likely indicating condominiums. The building will also feature 9,080 square feet of commercial space.
Upper West Side
Construction has topped out on 212 West 93rd Street, a 14-story condominium building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The project is designed by Eran Chen, head of ODA, and developed by Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties, which acquired the 9,000-square-foot plot from the Shaare Zedek Congregation for $34.3 million. The property will contain 20 units designed by GRADE New York and marketed by The Lindsey Stokes Team, a division within real estate brokerage Compass.
Construction is set to resume at 50 West 66th Street, the soon-to-be tallest skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Progress had been stalled on the 775-foot-tall residential tower until recently, when a joint venture was formed between Extell Development Company and global investment entity Tennor Holding B.V. to complete the project. Snøhetta is the designer of the 69-story structure, which will eventually eclipse the parapet of the neighborhood’s current title-holding skyscraper, 200 Amsterdam Avenue.
Demolition is continuing at 1841 and 1845 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where a 24-story mixed-use building is planned to rise. Scaffolding and black netting completely shroud 1841 Broadway, and it appears that the neighboring structure at 1845 Broadway has been partially razed. Both properties are owned by Global Holdings Management Group and Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record on demolition permits, which were filed late last year.
Construction has passed the halfway mark on 2505 Broadway, a 19-story residential development on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by ODA Architecture LPC and developed by Tomer Yogev of Adam America Real Estate, the 210-foot-tall structure will yield 44 units. The land was purchased for $50 million by MSD Partners in September 2018 and required the demolition of two low-rise buildings before excavation could commence the following year.
