November 6, 2006

A 20-story residential condominium building with 35 units is planned for 230 West 78th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue by Amsterdam 78, LLC, in care of Urban Residential LLC at 599 Broadway.

An offering plan was filed with the New York State Attorney General's office April 27, 2006 with a total offering price of $109,525,000.

Handel Architects is the architect but Lauren Hlavenka of Handel Architects, responding to a query from CityRealty.com, said in an e-mail message that "unfortunately, we are not releasing information of this project just yet."

The offering plan did not provide many details about the proposed new building but it indicated that part of it would be cantilevered at the 4th and 6th floors.

The building would have 75 feet frontage on 78th Street.

The building would have bicycle storage, a fitness center, an attended lobby and a roof deck. A four-bedroom apartment with three-and-a-half baths on the 18th floor with 3,156 square feet of space plus 611 square feet of terrace is priced at $6,950,000. A one-bedroom, one-bath unit with 949 square feet is priced at $975,000.

The site is presently occupied by a four-story building with an 11-step stoop entrance and a rusticated stone facade.
