The Belnord – the stately, century-old residential complex in the heart of the Upper West Side – is officially going condo with a total price tag of $1.3 billion.
Developer HFZ Capital filed plans to convert the rental property, on the northeast corner of Broadway and 86th Street, into condominiums, according to plans submitted with the New York attorney general’s office.
The total sellout of $1.3 billion makes the project the second-most expensive condo planned for the Upper West Side, after Zeckendorf Development’s 15 Central Park West, which had a sellout of $1.73 billion.
The Belnord, a limestone-and-brick structure that stretches the length of 86th Street Between Broadway And Amsterdam Avenue, was built in 1908. The building is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
