The Upper West Side still has the grand appeal of old New York City.
It’s a diverse neighborhood of countless artisans, endless entertainment, gorgeous brownstones, gourmet restaurants and groceries, overflowing bars, and the great escape—Central Park. The only drawbacks are aging buildings and a shortage of new housing.
Upper West Side housing comes at a premium, if you can find it. Professionals, students, artists and empty nesters are eager to move into the neighborhood and developers are hustling to accommodate them—with rare new residential buildings or condo conversions with modern amenities.
The neighborhood’s latest conversion, 175 West 95th Street, is fresh on the market and a sight for sore eyes. Let the tours and bidding commence.
The exclusive sales and marketing team at Corcoran Group Marketing in cooperation with 175 West 95 Owner LLC, recently announced that studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences are primed for sale in this full-service 27-story condominium conversion building. The condo includes 226 units, first-class indoor and outdoor amenities, and new retail space on the ground floor.
The building is ideally located between bustling Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues (a short stroll from Central Park and the Hudson River) on a tree-lined street beautified with brownstones. These new residences range in size from 504 square feet to $1,253 square feet, carrying an asking price from $620,000 to $2.1 million.
“Everything happening at 175 West 95th Street represents positive change for the neighborhood,” said Jodi Stasse, managing director for new developments at Corcoran Group Marketing. “The residences have been transformed and include timeless, modern touches, and the additional building offerings and retail space make this block a game changer on the Upper West Side.”
Sure to be a hot, in-demand commodity, 175 West 95th Street offers all residents more than 10,000-square feet of convenient indoor and outdoor space on the second floor, including a fitness center, children’s play room and a resident lounge with soaring ceilings sheathed in glass overlooking a landscaped terrace (which features gathering areas for casual seating and even outdoor dining). Adults aside, children also get their own outdoor private play area.
These redesigned residences showcase spacious, functional floor plans with contemporary design elements (generous closet space, tiled bathroom floors with natural stone, custom vanities, hardwood floors), and luxury kitchen appliances such as Liebherr, Miele, and Bertazzoni.
The apartments boast ample light, and most feature private outdoor balconies off the living rooms, with expansive views of the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River. The reconfigured lobby, which was renovated and relocated to 95th Street, includes 24-hour concierge service. The new entrance features glass and iron canopies and is adjacent to an underground parking garage.
“The Upper West Side continues to draw young, savvy professionals, students, empty nesters and more. The walkability of the neighborhood, its close proximity to shopping, dining and transportation access and the quality of living at this anticipated price point provides a housing opportunity that rarely exists in an established and desired neighborhood like this,” said Amy Katcher, project director of the Corcoran Group.
Construction on the renovated condominium began in April 2013 and was recently completed. Closings and occupancy are expected in the second quarter of 2015. For more information visit www.175w95.com.
