Manhattan, NY On the heels of securing a $40 million senior construction loan, Landsea Home and Leyton Properties have broken ground on their condominium development at 212 West 93rd St. The modern 14-story condominium is being designed by Eran Chen of ODA New York.
Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties recently gathered at the site along with Congregation Shaare Zedek to celebrate this milestone. The developers purchased the site, on West 93rd St. between Broadway and Amsterdam Aves., from the congregation to develop a boutique residential building atop a new 9,350 s/f synagogue. Once completed, the congregation will operate in the lower level and ground and second floors of the new building.
“Today marks an important milestone as we bring to fruition this once-in-a-lifetime development at 212 West 93rd St.,” said Thomas Graham, president of the New York Metro Division at Landsea Homes. “We look forward to creating a new home for Congregation Shaare Zedek and introducing 20 thoughtfully designed residences to this vibrant neighborhood.”
“We are thrilled to break ground at 212 West 93rd St. with our partner Landsea Homes, a company that shares our values and commitment to excellence in development and design,” said Scott Leyton, principal at Leyton Properties. “It is incredibly exciting to be building a best-in-class residential property that will also help the Shaare Zedek congregation stay in the neighborhood where they have had roots for nearly 100 years.”
Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties are building a modern 14-story condominium designed by Eran Chen of ODA New York. Drawing inspiration from the neighborhood’s historic pre-war architecture and with interiors by Grade, that celebrate refined, inviting and modern appointments throughout.
“As the third oldest Jewish congregation in the city, we are very excited to be in partnership with Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties,” said Michael Firestone, President of Congregation Shaare Zedek. “We have built an excellent relationship with these two organizations, and our community looks forward to moving into the beautiful new building that they will construct. ”
212 West 93rd St. is Landsea Homes’ first ground-up development in Manhattan as the company continues its expansion into key gateway cities across the country. Landsea Homes also recently announced the acquisition of a prime development site at 540 6th Ave., located at the nexus of three thriving downtown submarkets, Flatiron, Chelsea and Greenwich Village, which they are developing along with DNA Development.

The firm also recently completed the Pierce Boston, a 30-story tower in Boston’s storied Fenway neighborhood, and several communities in Arizona, Northern and Southern California.
