NEW YORK | 250 West 81st Street | 75m | 18 fl | Prep

Construction Begins On New Upper West Side Condo at 250 West 81st Street

Quote:
An 18-story, 32-unit condominium will soon rise at 250-256 West 81st Street in the Upper West Side, a site bought by Alchemy Properties and the Carlyle Group for $51M last year. Demolition for the former 3-story retail building was filed last year and completed a few months ago. The site is now undergoing construction, as per our recent photos.

The lot allows 94,000 buildable floor area and the developers are erecting a mixed-use condominium building designed by Hill West Architects. Renderings of the project have yet to surface but a drawing did appear on the construction site fence. The depicted building is fitting for the UWS neighborhood and the elaborate, classical top is reminiscent of 15 Central Park West and 10 Gracie Square.

As expected, this is actually a design by Robert A.M. Stern:



"A three-story building at the corner of West 81st Street and Broadway was demolished to make way for this 18-story condo developed by Alchemy Properties, the same developer behind the Woolworth Building’s condos. It’ll have a mix of two- to five-bedroom apartments, and Robert A.M. Stern will design it (the first rendering clearly shows off his signature limestone stylings). Apartments will go from $3.62 million, and Alchemy is working with Stribling & Associates on the sales and marketing. Residents will have access to amenities like a golf simulation room, a children’s playroom, a fitness center, and a library/lounge, among other features."
