As the Landmarks Preservation Commission resumes its review of construction applications, a slew of newly proposed developments have come to light. One of these projects includes a major retrofit of the former Hotel Wales at 1295 Madison Avenue in Carnegie Hill, Manhattan.
A new eight-story residential building designed by local architects J Frankl Associates will soon replace an aging mid-block structure in Central Harlem. The ongoing development is located at 168 West 136th Street and will eventually contain 20,000 square feet of residential area, with an additional 3,000 square feet at the ground level reserved for a community facility.
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has informed YIMBY that the depicted design was created for the site’s previous owners by Ennead Architects, and is now out of date.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.
