  • #23 Rated condo - Central Park West
How was this building rated?

Although it got off to a bumpy start, the large urban renewal project now known as Park West Village is one of the more attractive of its kind and its adjacency to Central Park and impressive renaissance of the Upper West Side north of 86th Street have made it very popular.

This building is known as The Vaux and is named after Calvert Vaux, one of the designers, with Frederick Law Olmsted, of Central Park. It is 19-stories tall and has 414 apartments like its companion building, The Olmsted, which is located at 382 Central Park West.

These two buildings comprise the southern half of the large site along Central Park West and 392 and 400 Central Park West the northern half. These slab towers run from east to west.

The Park West Village complex comprises seven, red-brick apartment houses of 16 to 20 stories between 97th and 100th streets.

The other three buildings in the complex are 784 Columbus Avenue, 788 Columbus Avenue and 792 Columbus Avenue. They are mid-block slab towers that run south to north. 788 Columbus Avenue is set further to the west than the other two. These three towers are west of the Whole Foods store and a 29-story apartment tower at 808 Columbus Avenue.

The original Park West Village development was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the architects of Manhattan House on the Upper East Side and Lever House on Park Avenue.

Park West Village was one of the city’s largest and most controversial urban renewal projects and was known initially as Manhattantown and then West Park Apartments. It was built by Webb & Knapp, the development company of William Zeckendorf, and the Aluminum Company of America (Alcoa).

The multi-block development took more than a decade to complete in 1960 and scandals relating to it led to a major rethinking about "slum clearance" programs.
