Developers filed permits to construct a seven-story condo building at 466 Columbus Avenue between 82nd and 83rd street, which is now a three-story commercial building. Blossom restaurant used to be on the ground floor, but has since moved to 507 Columbus, two blocks up.
The building is in a landmark district, so the design would have to pass muster with the Landmarks Preservation Commission. If approved, there will be ground floor retail in the new building, and one apartment on each floor from the 2nd through the 7th — the apartments will average 3,400 square feet, according to NY YIMBY. There will also be a penthouse and a roofdeck. The developer is Roe Corporation, and the architect is BKSK Architects, which designed Harsen House on 72nd street.
