Carter's View

The website of Douglaston Development indicates that it is "in pre-development on a luxury condominium project to be located at 160 West 62nd Street."

"The project," the website continued, "is being developed in conjunction with Continental Properties. The design architect is Cesar Pelli & Associates. Upon completion, the project is anticipated to have 300 luxury condominium homes in a 55+ story glass tower, an outdoor garden for residents and a high-end restaurant. The second floor of the building will be dedicated to an extensive amenity package, including a designer spa, fitness center, screening room, and business center."

Jeffrey E. Levine, a principal of Douglaston Development, told today that project discussions are being held with the City Planning Commission about possible desired modifications to bulk regulations for the site prior to certification into the city's Uniform Land Use Review Process (ULURP). He said that while the project's development rights are clear, details on the building's massing and number of units and stories have not yet been finalized, adding that devlopment hopefully would begin next year.

The tower would rise on the southeast corner of 62nd Street and Amsterdam Avenue just to the north of the 38-story Alfred apartment building at 161 West 61st Street, and to the east of a Fordham University campus that is south of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

The new building, which conceiveably could be as tall as about 620 feet, would serve as a southern foil to the 60-story apartment building known as 3 Lincoln Center on the northeast corner of 65th Street and Amsterdam Avenue with both towers framing the western boundaries of Lincoln Center.

Cesar Pelli & Associates, which is now known as Pelli Clarke Pelli Associates, is the architect of the World Financial Center at Battery Park City and One Beacon Court on the former site of Alexander's Department Store on the full block bounded by Lexington and Third Avenues and 58th and 59th Streets.

Douglaston Development is nearing completion of a condominium apartment tower at 325 Fifth Avenue and its other projects in Manhattan include the Zinc, a 21-unit residential condominium building planned for 475 Greenwich Street, and a 28-unit dormitory for the School of Visual Arts at 101 East Tenth Street at Third Avenue.
