Manhattan CB7 unanimously approves Upper West Side condo conversion

Sep.September 17, 2012 11:00 AM

Plans for the Naftali Group’s condominium conversion at 176-182 West 82nd Street on the Upper West Side were unanimously approved by Manhattan Community Board 7 late last week, Curbed reported.

The modifications include a reduction in the number of units — to 11 from 20 — as well as the addition of a 5,546-square-foot penthouse on the roof level. Christian Bailey of the Office for Design & Architecture, the firm retained for the site’s design, told CB7 that the penthouse would be made as “invisible as possible.”

However, co-op board members of the neighboring 172 West 82nd Street questioned whether the rooftop penthouse would block their terraces’ points of view. CB7 officials had hoped that ODA would bring a mockup model for their review.

As previously reported, this will be the Naftali Group’s first condo project in Manhattan. The buildings measure five stories and are mixed-use.

The Naftali Group and ODA will present their plans to the Landmarks Preservation Commission in the coming months, Curbed said. [Curbed] — Zachary Kussin
