The Le Pain Quotidien at 2463 Broadway (91st Street) closed on Sunday, January 20th. The site is being demolished to make way for a new building which will rise 15 stories and hold 33 apartments. ODA New York is the architecture firm designing the building, and the developer behind the project is Hampshire Properties.
Hampshire Properties first purchased the building, along with the next door 2461 Broadway, back in 2016, as first reported by the Real Deal.
2461 Broadway is a six-story rental building, and 2463 is a mixed-use commercial building.
The new construction will still have a ground-level retail component, and from the sign Le Pain posted on their window, it seems like they might be re-opening at this location once construction is complete (though we’re not 100% about that). If you’re unwilling to temporary live without them, Le Pain has another UWS location at 494 Amsterdam (at 84th Street).
At only 15 stories, this new construction is less likely to confront mass public opposition than its taller counterparts like 50 West 66th Street, which recently caught an unexpected permit revocation from the DOB. According to a 2017 report by YIMBY, the building will be 197 feet tall.Join the newsletter to stay on top of this and other real estate developments:
