This month we explored three brand-new luxury residential buildings in the Upper West Side that our clients have been dying to check out. From 555 W. End Ave. to The Belnord at 225 W. 86th St. to 207 W. 79th St., there’s something that appeals to every person’s high-end palate at each of these lavish condominiums. Find out more about 555 W. End Ave. by reading about some of our favorite highlights below as well as watching the full tour!
555 W. End Ave.
First built in 1908, 555 W. End Ave. is one of the most distinctive and colorful buildings on West End Avenue. Converted into large condominium apartments in 2018 by Cary Tamarkin and CL Investment Group, the landmark building offers condos with dramatic high ceilings starting at 12-feet high, central air conditioning, large windows, an in-unit washer and dryer and top-of-the-line features such as kitchens with Pietra Cardosa stone floors, solid white oak cabinetry by Christopher Peacock, polished Arabescato marble slab countertops and appliances by Miele, Wolf and Sub-Zero. These units can be snatched up as early as this summer and are selling at around $3,000 a foot.
In years prior, the exclusive building has transitioned from the New York Protestant Episcopal School Corporation’s St. Agnes School for Girls to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese’s Cathedral College, a high school and college seminary, in 1941 and later a Roman Catholic school called the St. Agnes School for Boys in 1992.
Located between 87th and 88th Streets and just one block from both Broadway and Riverside Park, 555 W. End Ave. is a prewar condominium with eight floors and 13 apartments. Building amenities include a full-time doorman, elevator, fitness center, basement storage, lounge area and grand Tudor-arched entryway. The exterior facade is covered in red brick with a limestone trim and base. Residents have access to the 1, 2 and 3 subway lines.
“People will be moving into the building this summer … What I really love about the apartment specifically: the dramatic high ceilings … how large and high the windows are … it just felt incredibly spacious.” – Michael Meier
