Manhattan’s upper upper west side new developments

According to LINK, the portion of the Upper west side from 96th street to 116 street is booming. As a result, 7 residential developments are either already selling or in the pipeline. It’s no secret that as the upper west side has gotten more expensive, some residents have moved further north to the upper reaches of the UWS or into Harlem. The most interesting new development in my opinion is Circa Central Park which is a ground up construction on the site that used to have a gas station at the corner of 110th street aka Central Park North and and 8th avenue. With less than 40 units and pent up demand, sales will be brisk. The development wil average between $1500 and $3000 per square foot. The developer Artimus is the same developer as the highly successful One Morningside Park at 110th street and Morningside avenue.

Concern has grown since both the Upper west side and Harlem have had rezonings to prevent large out of scale towers that are proliferating in many other parts of Midtown especially Midtown. Zoning has not changed in Morningside Heights since 1961.
