anyone have any information on this building?
Does anyone know any details about the Synagogue / School on 86th adding floors to the building which may block light / open views to the north-facing apartments, the C/D lines in this building? Is this happening?
They'll be adding four floors to their building on the north side of 85th. There's a schematic at http://www.thejewishweek.com/news/new-york-news/kehillat-jeshuruns-old-look-new-materials.
They don't have a building on 86th.
The four-story tenements on the south side of 85th, directly to the north of 125 E 84th, will eventually be redeveloped. You might want to find out who owns them.
All those classic 6 buildings on 84th St. in the 100s (address) - I have never understood why they trade to expensive- $1200 per square foot for old housing stock. Never made sense to me, not even for the PS 6 address.
Thank you for the info NWT - exactly what I wanted to know. You are right, 85th, and good point about those tenements buildings too.
There wasn't a lot of light in many of those units to begin with--even those that cleared Ramaz--but this will certainly make the back of the building significantly darker.
The townhouses on 85th street could be developed, but there are individual owners in the units, so I imagine that it would be difficult. Besides, Ramaz covers most of the back of 125 East 84th.
I think that the buildings trade so well because they're off of Park, great layouts, small enough for a starter apartment for many families looking to remain in the UES.
Ramaz is more than 100' to the north of 125 W 84th's back wall. The only sun they're getting is on summer mornings, when it rises a bit north of east, so no change there. It will cut off some view to the north, I guess.
Interesting thread. I'm interested in buying in the building and have wondered about negatives If the only negative is the light I don't think the apartment is dark. convenient, good location. seems quiet.
For what it's worth I had seen a couple of units and classic layout. Bit too rich in the downpayment (building requires 50%) ask but one can dream. I don't get the concern about the light. Mostly shorter buildings in the area and should they be rebuilt with additional floors, wouldn't compromise light. North light is less harsh than south - just my preference. On the price, still lower than anything with a Park Ave view but close enough to command more than any neighboring buildings to the east.
