The Astor, the historic building originally built by the legendary William Waldorf Astor in 1901, has been restored to receive modern upgrades while retaining the pre-war character and charm for which Manhattan’s Upper West Side is known. With listings now officially for sale for the first time in two years, the buyers have a chance to own a home in one of the most celebrated landmarked condominiums in NYC’s history. This luxury condominium is part of an iconic set of buildings tied to the Astor family, one of the biggest names in New York City real estate history.
The Astor’s 13 units – which include one- to five-bedroom homes and elevated penthouses – are now officially listed for sale and we have an opportunity to look inside the first residences.
These luxurious homes have been designed by ASH Staging, a division of ASH NYC, the renowned design firm known for chic hotels throughout the country – think: The Siren in Detroit and Hôtel Peter & Paul in New Orleans. ASH’s staging complements the finishes by acclaimed New York-based design firm Pembrooke & Ives, who led the redesign of The Astor’s historic interiors.
The residences feature enormous soaking tubs, bay windows, classic entry foyers and incredible views of the Upper West Side’s historic architecture, complemented by an array of playful textures and contemporary furnishings. Furthermore, lavish pads at The Astor boast such pre-war features like wood-burning fireplaces, custom molding, and herringbone-patterned floors.
The luxury building’s lobby features carefully restored original details that complement artful modern additions. Residents have access to the loft-like fitness studio which is professionally outfitted with state-of-the-art cardio and conditioning equipment. There is also the children’s playroom that features a warm and inviting space for entertainment of all kinds.
