What’s going on at 12-18 West 55th Street? The site between Fifth and Sixth avenues has lain fallow for several years, but a new 22-story mixed-use development could rise there, based on permits filed early last year.
The 245-foot-tall building would have 55 apartments, with Goldstein, Hill & West as the architect of record, according to the plan exam application from January 2013. The developer is Dallas-based Lincoln Property Company, which originally planned a hotel-condo tower at the site in 2006.
The project, which will sprout from several parcels, could have 7,532 square feet of commercial space on the first and second floors. Residents will have storage and a recreation room on the seventh floor. The plan was disapproved in February 2013, so this is all speculation.
Lincoln Property acquired the site in 2005, according to public records. The following year, the developer announced its plans for a condo-hotel, using air rights from a landmarked townhouse at 9 West 54th Street, the New York Post reported.
In November 2009, JD Carlisle Development bought 9 West 54th for $29 million, and in January 2010, the Midtown South firm paid $6 million for 10 West 55th street, according to The Real Deal. Both properties border 12-18 West 55th.
