Two Upper West Side buildings are on the market, and they’re likely to be replaced by new luxury apartment towers.
The American Bible Society on the corner of 61st street and Broadway recently hit the market and is expected to fetch about $300 million, Crain’s reported.
The society, which has been around for 200 years, publishes and distributes bibles, and has been in the space for 48 years. The location is hugely valuable — two blocks from Columbus Circle, a block and half from Central Park. A 300,000 square foot tower could potentially be built there, says Crain’s.
A garage on 77th street between Amsterdam and Broadway is also on the market and will almost definitely be turned into luxury housing. The Post expects the site at 219-223 West 77th to sell for at least $61 million. A development on the site could be as big as 76,627 square feet, according to Avison Young, which is marketing the space. The listing is here.
That site is right across the street from a Hertz garage, which is also set to be demolished and redeveloped.
