Hearings about Upcoming Penthouse Additions
By Caitlin Hawke
It seems that the real estate boom will continue apace. Even with landmarking in place in the RSD-WEA extension, there is no dearth of plans for additions and facade changes in this corridor.
Two upcoming Community Board 7 deliberations involve, weirdly, two nearly adjacent properties on W. 101st Steet.
The first to be discussed is Application #18-7577 to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for a penthouse and bulkhead additions (plus a rear extension) at 236 West 101st Street between West End Avenue and Broadway. This will be on the CB7 meeting agenda for Tueday, September 6th at 6:30 p.m. which takes place at Fordham University, 113 W. 60th Street. The rendering is at right.
The second will be a special hearing on plans by the owner of 840 West End Avenue (at W. 101st Street) for a rooftop addition on Thursday, September 8th at 6:30 p.m. (see flyer below). The location of the public hearing is 250 W. 87th Street. This rental building flipped in 2014 to Thor properties and has been marketing hard. There's an active listing for apartment 2AE at 840 WEA for $14,995/month. Thor has an interest in the building across the street at 838 West End Avenue as well.
