    Default The Harrison - 350 Amsterdam Avenue - UWS- Condo - by Robert A.M. Stern

    350 Amsterdam Avenue:




    http://www.rkf.com/listings/


    No news yet but this was posted on Curbed....


    2) Upper West Side: "We Equinox members recently received official notice that the Amsterdam & 76th St. Equinox club site will be razed for a large luxury condo tower. Apparently the adjacent garage with Chirping Chicken is also going down. Certainly consistent with the recently announced purchase by the Related Company. I and my neighbors are eager to find out more about this. I was told '45 stories.'"

    ^ You're both right, and you can add a pinch of Fritz Lang to your assessment.

    That said, I think it's pretty darn nice.

    Hope they keep those arched storefronts.

    Can someone post a photo of what's there now? Also, is the new project depicted in the rendering of the brick building in the first post or is it the tall, grey box in the second?

    Thanks. It looks nice to me.

    PS: What's there now? Is it nice or is it crap?

    No DEMO or New Building applications filed for this ^^ yet.

    But DOB records show a recent application for a sidewalk shed.

    It lists the Architect as George Schwarz.

    I'm not seeing in any of the images a 45-story tower as decribed in the first post.

    Is the tower the building that goes up out of frame in the second pic in the 1st post? - it looks to be behind the first building, but it looks shorter than 45 floors...much shorter.

    It's ^^ really unclear to me.

    RFK is the commercial space broker, so their images focus on those spaces on the lower floors.

    I did the DOB search to see what I could find out about the architect and where that might lead me. Beyond finding Schwarz' name I just kept hitting dead ends on this one.

    Turns out this is another Robert Stern design. From http://cityrealty.com/new_developments:

    Robert A. M. Stern designing new Amsterdam Avenue condo building 24-JUL-06

    The Related Companies have commissioned Robert A. M. Stern Architects and Ismael Levya to design a mid-rise, residential condominium building at 350 Amsterdam Avenue.

    The building would replace an attractive, five-story, red- and brown-brick garage building with numerous arched windows on the southwest corner of the avenue and 77th Street and a mid-block low-rise building just to the south.

    The new building would have an Equinox store adjacent to new retail space and its residential entrance would be on 76th Street.

    A rendering that appeared on the websites of two retail real estate companies, Robert K. Futterman & Associates and Winick Realty Group, indicated that the new building would be ready for occupancy in late 2008 and have four large ground floor arches along the avenue and a setback above the 8th and 9th floors and that some of the upper floors would have angled corners.

    A spokesperson for Robert A. M. Stern Architects referred CityRealty.com to The Related Companies and a spokesperson for the latter said she would call back when asked today by CityRealty.com about how many apartments would be in the development and when construction was anticipated to begin.

    Robert A. M. Stern is the architect of the new development now under construction at 15 Central Park West and his firm’s high-rise apartment projects in Manhattan include the Chatham at 181 East 65th Street, the Seville at 300 East 77th Street, the Westminster at 180 West 20th Street and TriBeCa Park (400 Chambers Street) at Battery Park City.
