The building, Located Between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway, would be replaced with a 16-story apartment building. The building currently has both residential and commercial tenants, including Tower Cleaners and A Select Few Antiques.

Tenants have been told they have 90 days to vacate. The apartments are mostly rentals that range from $2,000 for a studio to $3,700 for a two-bedroom. The building was sold in February. Morris Adjmi is the architect of the proposed new development. Anbau Enterprises is the developer.

The site is part of the 990-designated Upper West Side – Central Park West Historic District.

If built, the new building would block the west-facing windows of the Hotel Lucerne, which sits next door. Three other buildings in a four-block radius are scheduled to be demolished and replaced with luxury housing. Two On West 77th StreetAnd One On West 80th Street and Broadway.

The application is scheduled to be discussed at public hearings from Community Board 7 and the LPC. [West Side Rag] — Claire Moses
