The Upper West Side's Linden 78 has just about everything a new construction condo listing is supposed to have, from a wide-ranging suite of amenities to a prime location -- at, you guessed it, 230 West 78th Street -- to a host of elegant condominiums for sale. What Linden 78 has not enjoyed, though, is luck. Few Manhattan condo listings have been as star-crossed as Linden 78, which saw many residents back out of their contracts during the Manhattan real estate market’s bleakest hours back in 2009, due to construction delays. There was never anything wrong with the building – quite the contrary, in fact, as Linden 78 had appeared poised to become one of the Upper West Side’s most sought-after new construction condominiums. It was just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
