Situated on one of the neighborhood’s most historic and vital corners, the building is a last-of-its-kind condo conversion project for New York City. The top-to-bottom renovation led by CetraRuddy saw many of the former 196 rental apartments combined to create 108 spacious one- to five-bedroom private residences.
Additionally, several new imaginative indoor-outdoor amenities have been introduced, such as the landscaped roof terrace and outdoor fitness space. 212 West 72nd Street’s transformation into a condominium is now complete, and the first of the finished spaces, including an entirely redesigned lobby, new amenities and several model residences, are now available for viewing and tours.
“The new 212 West 72nd Street is one of few condominiums in the immediate area to offer concierge services, a full suite of amenities, light-filled modern interiors, home layouts affording an array of sizes, top-of-the-line finishes and striking views of neighboring prewar facades,” said John Tashjian of Centurion Property.
The homes showcase many of the unique layouts offered at the condominium, which range in size from a 714-square-foot one bedroom to a 3,070-square-foot four bedroom. Some select listings also boast large terraces with cinematic Upper West Side vistas. A prime example of available homes with unrivaled private outdoor space are the property’s two marquee penthouse residences, Penthouses North and Penthouse South.
These mansions in the sky feature sprawling private rooftop lounges with unique amenities like hot tubs, pizza ovens as well as outdoor movie theaters, kitchens and showers. One of the most highly anticipated components of the building’s transformation into 212 West 72nd Street is the inclusion of high-design indoor and outdoor common spaces. Residents will now arrive home to an elegant, double-height lobby featuring walnut paneling, custom-finished walls and archways, terrazzo flooring and a full-time concierge.
They can also enjoy the building’s third floor amenity level offering an all-new residents’ lounge, complete with seating areas and a landscaped outdoor terrace. Adjacent to the lounge is the children’s playroom, a light-filled space that has reading nooks and colorful banquettes used for play, arts and crafts, reading or homework.
There is also a state-of-the-art, windowed fitness center curated by The Wright Fit with stationary bikes, treadmills and strength-training equipment. The space features stunning wood paneling on the ceiling and oversized windows overlooking the landscaped outdoor fitness area, which can be used for yoga, meditation and private training sessions. An impressive landscaped private roof deck crowns the prominent corner of the 20-story building.
As residents move in, they can enjoy a sundeck with lounges, private entertaining spaces and barbeques and look forward to using a cozy gas fireplace as the weather gets colder, all with the backdrop of a sweeping panorama of the Upper West Side that includes Central Park. Additional amenities and services include a full-time doorman, a live-in resident manager, cold storage, bicycle storage and private residents’ storage.
Nestled between Central and Riverside Parks and overlooking the treetops of Verdi Square, 212 West 72nd Street is located in the heart of the Upper West Side, a historic and cultured neighborhood beloved for its green spaces, fine dining, luxury shopping, gourmet local grocers and venerated museums and world-renowned performing arts.
The building itself is home to a Trader Joe’s as well as a Duane Reade, and is just steps from the 72nd Street subway station, providing easy and convenient access to the rest of the city. 212 West 72nd Street represents a rare foray into modern architecture for this classic New York neighborhood, and its completion has set a new standard for ideal, contemporary living on the Upper West Side.
