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. Considered to be the most sustainable condominium building ever built in New York City, it was 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. It features seven sustainably-designed full-floor residences that offer 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. Charlotte of the Upper West Side is just a few blocks away from neighborhood favorites and cultural icons like the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park, Children’s Museum of Manhattan, Riverside Park, and more.
212 West 72nd Street
212 West 72nd Street, developed by Centurion Property Investors and redesigned by Cetraruddy, features 126 new residences, a designated children’s playroom with brightly colored 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. Located at the iconic intersection at Broadway and 72nd Street, the building is just a stone’s throw from the 72nd Street subway station and Central Park.
