The Naftali Group has filed its plans for a development at the site of the garage that once held a National Car Rental on 77th between Amsterdam and Broadway. The garage will be demolished, with an 18-story tower planned for the space. It will be directly across the street from another Naftali-owned 18-story condo tower.
The Real Deal has the details, but no rendering yet:
“The new property at 219-223 West 77th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue, is slated to hold 25 apartments and rise 185 feet. There will be a total of 79,899 square feet, with 1,624 square feet allotted for ground-floor commercial space. Parking will span about 3,000 square feet, documents show. Architecture firm Goldstein Hill & West was hired to handle design.”
Will they get to use the gym?
Although its not the greatest building, it would be nice to keep the facade of the old building and incorporate it into the new tower.
Truly, when is enough too much. How many more high end luxury apt. buildings do we need on the UWS?
I moved to the UWS 20 years ago. Then, it was a fun place with unique ethnic restaurants and mom and pop shops. Those places are all gone. The more large luxury apt. buildings that are put up on the UWS the more the unique character of the neighborhood is eroded. Additionally, realistically the electrical grid, water system and sanitation system and transportation systems cannot support this tremendous influx of new people.
Also, every new bldg. like this pushes the cost of life higher and higher and forces the people who were here in the bad old 80’s and made this neighborhood livable out of this neighborhood.
Please call a halt to all of this over building before the UWS and all of NYC become nothing more than residential gated communities with no character and no real amenities.
Wow Liz , a lot of hyperbole in that. Okay that’s your opinion, personally i find lots of cool unique stores in New York… However, the idea that a halt of construction will somehow make new york cheaper and turn back to clock is just wrong.
This is a supply and demand issue. The less new housing means the same buyers will buy somewhere else that is currently existing , adding to the pressure to raise rents, move out tenants, etc.
