When news broke in mid 2013 that the Naftali Group snagged a Hertz garage on 77th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam for $55.5 million, it was almost certain that the prolific developer would bring a residential building to the site. Well then, the only surprise here is that Naftali has tapped celebrated Danish designer Thomas Juul-Hansen to helm the project, reports BBH.
The new development will rise 18 stories at 210 West 77th Street, the site of a Hertz garage formerly owned by the nonprofit social service Jewish Board of New York. The building will have 25 full- and half-floor apartments with Juliet balconies and mahogany-framed windows. According to Corcoran’s announcement of the development, the building’s front will have a series of stepped terraces, and the facade will be made of custom hand-formed brick. Permits that were approved last month indicate the building will also have ground-floor retail. While the building has a teaser site, it doesn’t really reveal much, yet.
