New Look to New York Icon


New York is known worldwide for its trend setting luxury living designs. The new renovations at the iconic 212 West 72nd Street building on the Upper West Side is another jewel in the crown of New York’s modern, luxury appartments.

Centurion Property Investors has announced the launch of sales at 212 West 72nd Street, the building is noted for its signature curved glass façade and dramatic presence on one of the neighborhood’s most historic and picturesque corners, and currently undergoing a top-to-bottom transformation into condominium residences. Built in 2010 as the neighborhood’s premier rental building and formerly known as “The Corner,” 212 West 72nd Street now offers 126 condominium homes ranging from one- to five-bedroom layouts, with initial inventory priced from $1.25 million to $8.3 million. Top New York-based design firm CetraRuddy has led the elegant redesign of these residences, including upgraded and completely re-envisioned interiors and a new suite of amenities. The first completed model residences are now available to tour and experience, ahead of the building’s Spring 2021 opening to residents.

Ideally located at the corner of 72nd and Broadway overlooking Verdi Square, 212 West 72nd Street represents a rare foray into modern architecture for this classic New York neighborhood. As a rental, 212 West 72nd Street commanded the highest rents on the Upper West Side thanks to its prime location, airy and light-filled residences and views of Central Park and surrounding landmarks. As a luxury condominium with the convenience of having Trader Joe’s and Duane Reade within the building and the 72nd Street Subway across the street, 212 West 72nd Street is well-positioned to set a new standard for ideal, modern living on the Upper West Side.

212 West 72nd Street’s residences range in size from 714 square feet to 3,070 square feet, with select homes also boasting spacious private terraces with cinematic Upper West Side vistas. Many of the residences feature open floor plans that take advantage of the building’s curved glass façade, a concept that provides abundant light and commanding vistas that is specifically unique to 212 West 72nd Street.

The furnished model residences showcase the lifestyle that buyers can experience at 212 West 72nd Street, including one- to four-bedroom layouts.

In each of the 126 residences, the living and dining rooms are open, spacious and elevated by high-performance floor-to-ceiling windows that reduce noise and protect against glare, ultraviolet exposure and solar heat gain. The layouts also promote flexibility, supporting quality time at home as well as formal entertaining.

Giving attention to the details that matter most, CetraRuddy also took every opportunity to optimize storage, emphasize light and create flow throughout the residences. The firm selected a soft color palette of neutral tones, subtle metallic accents and unique textures to complement the light-filled interiors, and incorporated finishes such as white lacquer and quartzite in the kitchens, and white oak plank flooring throughout. In the custom kitchens, the cabinetry and countertops are not only designed for form, but also for function with plenty of storage spaces.

In the master bathroom, luxurious materials and thoughtful details create a private sanctuary. Custom-designed vanities by CetraRuddy feature polished nickel accents and large, deep drawers clad in a leathered textile. Medicine cabinets offering abundant storage are framed by nickel, and sconces accented by handmade crystal shades cast a romantic light. Showers are crafted with fluted glass panels set in a polished nickel frame, and soaking tubs feature a custom marble surround. Floor-to-ceiling marble walls and honed marble floors complete a sophisticated environment.

The transformation of 212 West 72nd Street includes all indoor and outdoor amenity spaces. Residents will arrive home to an elegantly redesigned lobby staffed with a full-time concierge. The softly illuminated double-height space features walnut paneling, custom-finished walls and archways, and terrazzo flooring.

On the building’s third floor, there is an all-new residents’ lounge that is designed to function as the building’s “great room” for city living, complete with seating areas and a landscaped outdoor terrace. Adjacent to the lounge is a children’s playroom, a light-filled room, complete with reading nooks and colorful banquettes, to be used for play, arts and crafts, reading, or homework. The third floor’s windowed fitness center, curated by The Wright Fit, is a state-of-the-art offering. Outfitted 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 space. This area can be used for yoga, meditation or private training sessions.

An impressive landscaped private roof deck crowns the 20-story building. Residents enjoy a sundeck with lounges, private entertaining spaces, barbeques and a cozy gas fireplace. Additional amenities and services include a full-time doorman, concierge access for dining arrangements and move-in services, a live-in resident manager, cold storage, bicycle storage and private residents’ storage.

Nestled between Central and Riverside Parks, 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 area is an international destination, heralded as the home of some of New York’s most iconic institutions, such as the Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center, Beacon Theatre and the American Museum of Natural History. 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 access to the rest of the city.
