Demolition is getting underway at 207-221 West 84th Street, the site of an 18-story residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Naftali Group, which purchased the assemblage of properties for $71 million last year, the new 209-foot-tall structure will yield 154,598 square feet with 45 condominium units spread across 151,700 square feet, as well as 2,898 square feet of ground-floor retail space, a cellar level, and 17 enclosed parking spaces. The project spans nearly 250 feet from the corner of Broadway to the middle of the block.
Recent photos show scaffolding being assembled in front of the four residential buildings that comprise the plot, and workers were seen hauling away dumpsters of debris from the gutting of their interiors. The structures should begin to be razed by late spring, and the site could potentially be cleared before the end of the year.
Among the buildings being demolished is Eagle Court at 215 West 84th Street, which which features an ornate prewar façade.
221 West 84th Street forms the western end of the assemblage at the corner of Broadway and West 84th Street.
The site is located two blocks south of the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the local 1 train. Directly to the north of the property is The Apsley, another new residential building at 2330 Broadway that stands 21 feet taller than 207-221 West 84th Street’s planned height.
An anticipated completion date for 207-221 West 84th Street has yet to be announced, though it’s possible that work could finish by early 2025.
