Plans to build a 23-story building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side are back on after stalling in 2019.

Fetner Properties re-filed plans for the development at 270 West 96th Street, which will have 171 apartments and space for a community facility, Crain’s reported.

Fetner will begin construction on the 235-foot-tall, 150,000-square-foot building during the fourth quarter of the year, according to the publication. It may take about 28 months to complete the project.

The last update about Fetner’s project came in 2019 after the company received unanimous approval by Community Board 7’s land use committee, I Love the Upper West Side reported. At the time, plans were for 6,500 square feet of the 8,000-square-foot community facility to be occupied by the Salvation Army, the publication added.

The 2019 proposal called for 80 micro-units and 91 traditional apartments. Forty percent of the units were to be permanently affordable.

Construction in New York was slowed last year by the pandemic, with filings for new buildings totaling about 42.7 million square feet, down 28 percent from the previous year, according to a report by the Real Estate Board of New York.
