The New York Times has reported that Taconic and Nuveen Real Estate will convert one of the ABC properties soon-to-be-vacated from their West End Avenue campus into a life science hub. Not only will this maintain the “bones” of what was once a Chrysler showroom, under a renovation by Perkins and Will, but it will more quickly–as soon as 2023 repopulate the site with employees in a growth sector. And that same bioengineering concept is not just at work inside the building. This site is expected to be the first in a life science cluster along the Upper West Side. Stay tuned for other updates on our ABC WATCH page, and read the full article HERE. Find further renderings via I Love the Upper West Side HERE.
