The design for a sliver building at 207 West 75th Street appeared to be on the ropes after a group of neighbors led by beloved NY1 anchor and former 215 West 75th Street co-op president Pat Kiernan made enough of a stink that the developers ended up withdrawing their application to the Board of Standards & Appeals. However, shortly thereafter Kiernan abandoned his post and moved to Williamsburg, and now the sliver building has come out of hiding with new renderings, a slightly revised design, and a date with the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
The changes to the Morris Adjmi-designed building include a reduction of the penthouse glass and a slight increase in height, according to NY YIMBY. Old disapproved permits indicated that it would total 26,865 square feet, standing at 14 stories and 176 feet, so it's likely still somewhere around that. Adjmi, developer Felipe Coello, and company will bring the plans for the fully residential building before the LPC on July 22.
