First image of condo coming to 192md & Bway

The new luxury condos uptown just keep on coming. At right is an image of the building to be developed on the emptly lot at 4469 Broadway (@ 192nd St.). Here's how the architect's website describes the project:

"The first floor will have retail space, the second will be doctors offices and the 3rd through 8th will be luxury condominium apartments. There will also be parking in the cellar. Amenities will include a gym for the tenants, washer and dryer in every unit and terraces and balconies in various locations."

I applaud the developer for designing a building which fits into the scale and context of the surrounding community--unlike the infamous 25-story tower going up at 184th St. & Overlook Terrace. But I wish there were some affordable units included in the project. And we'll have to be vigilant during the construction process to make sure disruption to the neighbors in minimized.
