A Bespoke reader asked us what is going on with the condo conversion for the landmark building at 721 St. Nicholas Avenue. As many might remember, the developers who purchased the building tried to build an addition on top of the corner tower by 146th Street but was rejected a couple of times back in 2012 by the city's Landmark Commission. Not much has happened since then and it has been almost a year since the last proposal was submitted for approval. Looking at the DOB website, nothing seems to be happening at all and thus this restoration is once more in limbo. Read more about the aforementioned addition here: City Land
