New Development News, May 2021

Several updates about new developments, construction and sales activity around the Upper West Side have recently been announced.

Construction is underway at 2330 Broadway, located on 85th Street, New York YIMBY reports. Permits for this senior living facility were filed in 2019. The 18 story building will have 162 apartments, about half of which will be reserved for residents with Alzheimer’s or other memory issues, with supportive programming offered onsite. The average unit will measure 674 square feet.

Eagle Court, a residential rental building located at 215 West 84th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam, has been put on the market for sale (thanks to ‘Upper West Sider’ for the tip). Jones Lang Lasalle is marketing the property, and the description mentions having “a total of 156,619 total buildable square feet when utilizing all of the as-of-right bonuses,” which indicates the possibility of construction and expansion. A tenant at the building recently told us that the management company is not renewing any current leases, and many long-term tenants of over 10 years are very disappointed as the building and staff have provided a great community for them.

New York YIMBY has also reported updates for 2505 Broadway and 2551-2555 Broadway.

Sales have officially launched at 2505 Broadway, located between 93rd and 94th Streets. Developed by Adam America and designed by ODA, the new condominium comes with 44 apartments, ranging from one-to-four bedrooms. According to the building’s website, prices start at $1.5 million for a 793 square foot one-bedroom, with a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath unit measuring 2,352 square feet asking $5.9 million. The building has reached its nineteen-story height while work on the facade continues.

At 2551-2555 Broadway, between 95th and 96th Streets, construction of the 22 story building has topped out. The developer is Extell and the architect is Stephen B. Jacobs Group. Once complete, the building will house 130 condominum apartments at an average size of 1,660 square feet. We reported in December 2019 that the building’s two retail spaces (at the site of the former Gristedes) were on the market, and it appears they still are.

Finally, now that it’s “legally” the tallest building on the Upper West Side, the developers of the controversial 200 Amsterdam Avenue have listed some extremely large and expensive penthouse apartments. These include two duplexes respectively asking $38 and $40 million and measuring 6,500 square feet a piece.
