207W79 Offers Refined Prewar-Inspired Residences Ranging From $3.95 To $15 Million.
Located at 207 West 79th Street, 207W79 is an intricately designed, full-service, luxury condominium featuring 19 residences elegantly designed with expansive modern loft spaces for refined living on NYC’s Upper West Side. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, 207W79 honors the Upper West Side’s timeless architecture aesthetic with a pre-war inspired exterior design. The firm’s first ground-up project in the neighborhood reflects the streetscape of the storied historic district with brick and limestone physique, custom-made terracotta panels and generous casement-style windows, complete with an Art Deco-inspired crown molding.
“As residents of the Upper West Side, we saw the opportunity for 207W79 to address the need to complement the area’s enduring prewar architecture while also meeting residents’ need for contemporary design,” said Stephen Glascock, president of Anbau, a leading developer of luxury residential properties in NYC. “Morris Adjmi Architects is the ideal partner to bring this building to life as they share our philosophy and passion for creating timeless properties that complement the characteristics of the surrounding area.”
Extending the design sensibility found throughout the property’s exterior, Morris Adjmi Architects created interiors and common spaces evocative of old-world glamour and luxury. The lobby is designed with leaf patterned mosaic tiles and William Morris-inspired custom wallpaper to reflect the building’s terracotta panels. Wide corridors throughout the building lead residents to white bronze metal elevators with Calacatta marble floors and fluted white bronze and antique mirror walls.
207W79 brings 19 thoughtfully designed two- to six-bedroom residences, including two townhouses and a penthouse, ranging from 1,662 to 4,336 square feet and priced from $3.95 to $15 million. Graciously scaled living and dining rooms feature mansion weave parquet patterned floors as well as casement windows with sweeping views of the Hudson River and Midtown skyline. Epicurean kitchens offer Calacatta marble islands, gray oak cabinetry and classic fixtures by Lefroy Brooks, while light-filled bathrooms feature Empire-style soaking tubs, marble topped elm vanities, rattan marble and porcelain mosaic floors that complement the wood flooring found throughout the interiors and large casement windows.
“Morris’s architecture and interiors really honor the Upper West Side, where new construction offerings are exceedingly rare,” said Beth Fisher, senior managing director of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. “In addition to the absolute beauty and intricacy of the finishes, the residences have amazing light and many have views of the Hudson River and those legendary Westside sunsets.”
Amenities at 207W79 include an elegant 24-hour attended lobby, on-site fitness studio, versatile playroom with bleacher seating and integrated cushioned benches, a bike room and private storage for purchase.
Located next to the Lucerne Hotel, 207W79 is nestled between two of Manhattan’s most beloved parks, Central Park and Riverside Park. A haven for artistic and intellectual lifestyles, the building’s premier location offers an atmosphere of illustrious living with access to academic institutions such as Columbia University, cultural venues including the Beacon Theater and the New York Historical Society, as well as convenient access to world-class performing arts, gourmet grocers and neighborhood hidden gems.
