The Bel Canto

Bel Canto is building in center with balconies

By Carter B. Horsley

This 26-story, mid-block building has its tower setback from its low-rise base on Broadway. The tower aligns with the city's grid, but the base is angled to align with Broadway.

The building, which was completed in early 1986, has a high atrium along Broadway, for which it received a zoning bonus as a public amenity although the space was taken over by a restaurant.

The building was developed by Lewis Futterman and Steven E. Magid and designed by John Harding & Associates.

The building has numerous balconies, a concierge and a laundry room, but no garage, no health club, and no sundeck. Its location, however, is prime for the Upper West Side, close to Lincoln Center, major retail facilities and public transportation.
