Description

Unit 2034 at the esteemed Dorchester was originally a Junior-4, which was converted to a proper, 2 bedroom by the tenants who lived there for over 14 years as of this August. Upon the tenants' departure in late August, the owner hired a contractor to skim coat and paint the whole apartment from floor to ceiling and also had the whole apartment deep cleaned. In addition, they just replaced ALL of the windows in the unit as of the first week of November 2020, and the city skyline views and southern light are amazing.

If you saw the apartment early in the year, please come back again, as it feels like a whole different apartment. Also, developers don't make closet space like you'll find in 2034 anymore. It must be seen to be believed! All that's left to do is update the kitchen and bathroom to your very own specifications.

In addition to the original floor plan, the owners of 2034 hired an architect to draw-up an open, alternate floor plan, which is attached here as well. The Dorchester Towers condominium is squarely located on one of the most prime corners on the Upper West Side. With very limited apartments for sale in the building and at this price point, this is your chance to create your very own dream large, one-bedroom or two-bedroom home. The Dorchester Towers, built in 1964, are a classic sixties white brick residence.

The building combines a Mid-Century Modern style with the interior features common to that era of architecture: abundant light, open views, generous closet space and open floor plans. Most of the apartments feature studio, one-bedroom and "junior four" (convertible 2 bedrooms) layouts. The Dorchester is uniquely situated on a full block between West 68th and 69th Streets and Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue creating unusually bright and open exposures.

The building's amenities include a full-time doorman and concierge, package room, garage, laundry rooms on every floor up to 21, bike storage and additional storage units, a planted roof deck and an on-site management office. The location of this building in prime Lincoln Center makes it attractive to residents and investors alike: easy access to the 1, 2, 3 trains, crosstown and Broadway buses, two parks (Riverside and Central) and a variety of gourmet food shops, movie screens, gyms, and all of life's necessities within steps.
