Anbau Enterprises is developing a 13-story condo tower at 207 West 79th Street, designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, that falls within the Upper West Side-Central Park West Historic District. Anbau’s managing director, Barbara van Beuren, said that she had discovered that working with landmark districts produced a better and more contextual building.
“There’s more uncertainty in doing a building in a landmarks district, but we believe that design is one of the most important things in real estate, and in our mind it just makes a more valuable building,” Ms. van Beuren said. “Buyers, in my experience, may not be able to articulate why they like or don’t like a design, but they intuitively know when it’s good.”
