Construction at 272-276 West 86th Street
(gutted and being converted to luxury condos)
Neighborhood preservation groups such as Landmarks West, West End Preservation Society and Coalition for a Livable West Side helped save the buildings from potential demolition by testifying at Community Board 7 and Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) for historically appropriate renovations. Only the facade remains the rest of the buildings are totally gutted.
East River Partners (ERP) is renovating 272-276 West 86th Street – three adjacent landmarked grand mansions designed originally by the renowned architect C.P.H. Gilbert – into completely modernized apartment homes.
"All of the apartments will feature more than three bedrooms, a rarity in today’s market. Positioned on a wide street with significant setbacks in both the front and rear, the apartments will experience some of the best light of any boutique building in the neighborhood". ERP
