Adagio, 243 West 60th Street: Review and Ratings

between Amsterdam Avenue & West End Avenue View Full Building Profile

Review of 243 West 60th Street by Carter Horsley

The Adagio is an attractive 9-story residential condominium building at 243 West 60th Street between West End and Amsterdam Avenues that is notable for having its own tennis court and an English-style formal garden. 

The 41-unit building was built in 2008 by West End Development, an affiliate of LHL Realty Inc., of which Lawrence Ginsberg is a principal. The same developer built the Sessanta at 229 West 60th Street the following year and it shares the tennis court and garden with the Adagio. 

H. Thomas O Hara was the architect and Andres Escobar designed the interior spaces.

Bottom Line

A sleek, modern mid-rise, mid-block condominium building that shares an outdoor tennis court and garden with an adjoining rental building erected by the same developer.


The building has an entrance marquee in front of a large glass wall with a “floating dark wood element over a small patch of sidewalk landscaping." The glass wall provides views of its large lobby with a fireplace and wavy white wall. 


The building has a lobby with a fireplace, a garage, a 24-hour doorman, a formal garden and a fitness center.  

It shares with the adjoining Sessanta rental building a 40-foot indoor swimming pool, a business center and media lounge and a lighted outdoor tennis court.


Many of the building's apartments have fireplaces, 11-foot-4-inch-high ceilings and Brazilian hardwood flooring. 

Kitchens have appliances and fixtures by Sub Zero, Bosch, Dornbracht, Miele and Gaggenau with Ipe Brazilian hardwood floors, Caesar Stone countertops and Makassar wood cabinetry and wine coolers. 

Master baths have Allmilmö Wenge woodwork and vanities, Zuma tubs, radiant-heated limestone floors, rain-style showerheads, and Statuary Venatino and Thassos marble walls. 

Apartment 2E is a one-bedroom unit that has a very long entry foyer that leads past a pass-through kitchen to a 29-foot-wide living/dining room. 

Apartment 8D is a three-bedroom unit with a long entry gallery that leads to an open kitchen and a 26-foot-wide living/dining room with a corner fireplace. 

Apartment F on the third through the sixth floors is a two-bedroom unit that has a 23-foot-wide living room that opens onto a 16-foot-wide dining room next to a pass-through kitchen. 

Apartment 7B is a two-bedroom unit with an entry foyer that leads to a 16-foot-wide dining room that opens onto a 22-foot-wide living room with a corner fireplace and a pass-through kitchen.  The apartment has an 849-square-foot terrace.
