Landmark approval for 260 W78th
The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission last week approved plans for a new mid-rise residential development at 260 West 78th Street and 378 West End Avenue in the West End Collegiate Historic District on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Designed by Rick Cook of COOKFOX Architects and developed by the Collegiate Churches of New York, the new building is being erected on and parcels owned by the Collegiate Churches of New York and are located next to West End Collegiate Church, one of the Collegiate Churches’ five ministries.
The funds generated by the development will be used to support the Collegiate Churches’ charitable and housing programs.
The COOKFOX design team incorporated a small garden between the Church and the new development called “Healing Turtle Island Garden,” which references a reconciliation ceremony between the Collegiate Churches and the indigenous Native American Lenape tribe.
The approved plan allows for the preservation and rehabilitation of 378 West End Avenue, known as West End Plaza, as well as the creation of a new harmonious structure at 260 West 78th Street.
Designed to set a new standard for integrated environmental sustainability, the development will prioritize connections to nature to promote health and well-being. It will include high-performance design to achieve LEED certification.
While appearing as two separate buildings with distinct facades, the 66 residential units, with approximately 9,500 square feet of common amenity space, will be spread across both buildings and exist as one development.
It will replace a 1960s building, known as Platten Hall, which is currently occupied by the Collegiate School.
