15 West 96th Street culminates in Manhattan’s Upper West Side
Construction peaked at 15 West 96th Street, a 22-story apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Sackman Enterprises, the 312-foot-tall building will produce 17 residential units. Cavan Builders Corporation is the general contractor for the property, located between Central Park West and Amsterdam Avenue.
Work has continued steadily on the reinforced concrete superstructure since our last update in January, when the building had not yet reached the lower setback. Now the structure has reached its peak and stands prominently over its neighbors. The exterior walls and insulation layer of the podium are in progress, and structural steel posts are being installed on the upper floors.
Renderings show the tower clad in light-colored stone panels with a grid of large windows and a multi-story podium with high ceilings. There will likely be one apartment per floor on most lower levels and a few duplexes on upper floors. Residential facilities will include a fitness center, children’s playroom, bicycle storage and lounge. The closest subways are the B and C trains at the 96 Street station, as well as the 1, 2, and 3 trains along Broadway to the west. Central Park is a short walk to the east and will be clearly visible from the tower itself.
The completion date for 15 West 96th Street is listed on the site for Spring 2023.
