School’s In


With private school acceptance letters being mailed out in the coming weeks, parents across the New York are scrambling to relocate to the Upper West Side to be closer to their children's new schools. Abode2 takes a look at some of the best new condo buildings in this coveted neighbourhood that you can move into before the next school year.

Ranging from historic buildings to brand-new ground-up construction, these luxury developments offer everything families need at home and on their doorstep, from spacious residences and dedicated children's playrooms, to museums and parks just moments away.


The Astor

Perfect for families with children, The Astor offers spacious homes with must-have features including tons of natural light, study nooks and oversized bathrooms with soaking tubs, plus family-friendly amenities such as a children's playroom that is fully equipped with games and activities. Placing kids in the midst of one of New York’s most family-friendly neighbourhoods, the building is surrounded by world-class educational and cultural institutions including the American Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Centre and the Children's Museum of Manhattan, and between two of the city's most coveted green spaces, Central Park and Riverside Park. Perhaps most importantly, The Astor places residents just moments from some of New York City's best private and public schools. The Astor, located at 235 West 75th Street, is a luxury condominium originally built by the legendary William Waldorf Astor in 1901 that is now being upgraded and restored for the modern buyer.

212 West 72nd Street

A decade after the Upper West Side’s first ultra-modern project debuted on the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway, the premier curved glass building has completed a top-to-bottom transformation from rental apartments into luxury condominium residences. 212 West 72nd Street, developed by Centurion Property Investors and redesigned by Cetraruddy, introduces 126 new residences to the iconic intersection at Broadway and 72nd Street, just a stone’s throw from the 72nd Street subway station and Central Park. The family-friendly building features a designated children's playroom with brightly coloured decor and children-sized furnishings including small tables and booth seating arrangements. A reading nook was also included to expose children to the enjoyment of reading and encourage learning, as the space is also open for children to complete their homework.

Charlotte of the Upper West Side

Charlotte of the Upper West Side is one of the first new residential buildings to be constructed in the Central Park Historic District in the past 30 years, and believed to be the most sustainable condominium building ever built in New York City. Designed by the award-winning BKSK Architects and engineered to meet the exacting standards of the German-based Passive House Institute, the state-of-the-art building boosts residents' health, wellbeing, safety, and comfort. Located at 470 Columbus and West 83rd Street, Charlotte of the Upper West Side brings seven striking and sustainably-designed full-floor residences to one of New York City’s most coveted neighbourhoods offering four bedrooms with expansive loft-like kitchen-living-dining areas perfect for relaxation, play, and more. Each home's primary suite is intentionally tucked away from living spaces and other bedrooms for maximum privacy. In addition, the building is just a few blocks away from neighbourhood favourites and cultural icons like the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park, Children's Museum of Manhattan, Riverside Park, and more.
