Built in 1906 and designed by Robert S. Lyons, the St. Urban's residences feature spacious rooms, tall ceilings, rich mahogany and quarter-sawn oak finishes, libraries, foyers, grand dining rooms, large kitchens and a unique, first-of-its-kind central refrigeration system providing each apartment with a private chiller. Many large bay windows, usually located in the living rooms, offer views of Central Park and most units have wine cellars and maids’ quarters; several of the upper-floor apartments also have working fireplaces.

285 Central Park West has been renovated over the past few years, with its roof and exterior recently undergoing a major restoration. The St. Urban’s amenities include a 24-hour doorman, a gym with a full-sized indoor basketball court and bicycle storage. It is close to Central Park, shops and restaurants and the American Museum of Natural History.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the city's grand Beaux-Arts structures, the St. Urban at 285 Central Park West on the southwest corner at 89th Street is an exuberantly designed apartment house of great distinction. 

Although it is very flamboyant and almost too robust in its assertive embellishments, it is truly one of the city's most spectacular residential properties." Read Carter's Full Review
