The Alfred Overview

Basking in the glory of its freestanding site, the 38-story Alfred residential condominium tower at 161 West 61st Street was one of the most visible in the Lincoln Center district when it was erected in 1987. 

This neighborhood, however, began to witness a tremendous burst of new construction around 2007 with several glassy new apartment towers sprouted nearby to the south and west and Fordham University began to redevelop its campus south of the Lincoln Ceetner for the Performing Arts to the east. 

By 2013, new construction to the east and north began to infringe upon this tower's high visibility from Lincoln Center.

The 224-unit condominium was developed by Carol Management Corporation and designed by Jung/Brannen Associates.
