UWS New Construction | 15 West 96th Street

YIMBY Revealed: 15 West 96th Street a new 22-story building, developed by Sackman Enterprises and designed by SLCE, will have five floors of community space topped by a residential amenity space and 16 condos
The Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District stops on the southern side of 96th Street, meaning 15 West 96th Street can proceed as-of-right, another rarity for new projects on the Upper West Side, which has some of the strictest land use rules in Manhattan.

Other than the duplex penthouse, each residence will take up one full floor. Because the development on West 96th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue falls on the north side of the street, just beyond the neighborhood's landmarks district, the project can be built as-of-right.
