Description of Charing Cross House at 305 East 72nd Street

The Charing Cross House at 305 East 72nd Street ranks within the lucky category of buildings that seem to get better with age. When the 17-story high-rise went up in 1955, it offered column-free corner windows and a beige brick façade that harmonized with its pre-war neighbors. Since then, the doorman condop has been upgraded with amenities such as a bike storage room, a spacious fitness center, and a verdant roof deck perfect for open-air socializing while gazing on sweeping skyline views. Moreover, in 2017, the Second Avenue subway introduced the 72nd Street station of the M, Q, and R trains at the foot of the building, turning the building into one of the most transit-accessible on the Upper East Side. Pied-a-terres, co-purchasing, guarantors, and subletting are considered on a case-by-case basis.
