Multifamily Development Rising in Quintessential Midtown Manhattan Neighborhood 

NEW YORK, N.Y. (Aug. 25, 2023) — The Wilf family’s Skyline Developers this summer broke ground at 18 West 55th Street in Manhattan, launching a much-anticipated development that will transform a vacant lot into new multifamily residences. The 152,000-square-foot, 26-story tower will include 97 rental apartments and lifestyle amenities. 

With an expected 2025 delivery, 18 West 55th Street sits on the same block as The Peninsula New York Hotel, near globally recognized landmarks such as The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Central Park and Fifth Avenue retail. Skyline Developers appointed renowned architect Morris Adjmi to design 18 West 55th Street; Goldman Sachs Bank USA is serving as the project’s construction lender.  

“It’s gratifying to see this project underway in one of New York’s most iconic and desirable neighborhoods,” said Orin Wilf, principal of Skyline Developers, the firm behind such high-profile Manhattan multifamily projects as ML House (1050 Avenue of the Americas) and 200 East 79th Street. “We’re looking forward to bringing forth the quality product Skyline Developers is recognized for delivering.”  

18 West 55th Street builds upon Skyline Developers’ and the Wilf family’s great tradition of building that began in 1954. Founded in 1999 as the New York City affiliate of Garden Homes, Skyline introduced the family’s decades-long expertise into the world’s largest real estate market. The company was one of the first developers to bring luxury living to the Financial District. Today, Skyline Developers has grown to include an impressive residential rentals roster, acclaimed condominium projects, and premier office towers and retail locations throughout Manhattan.
