Features

Seemingly from the time Era began construction, the boutique condominium developed by Adam America Real Estate and Northlink Capital has captured the attention of the real estate, architecture, and Upper West Side communities alike. Locals were less than pleased with the cantilever, as designed by ODA, but the Department of Buildings found it in compliance with building codes and zoning regulations. Moreover, the distinctive shape allows for expansive layouts and multiple exposures for the 57 two- to five-bedroom units inside, which have just launched sales.
Current availabilities range from $2.625 million for a two-bedroom to $9 million for a four-bedroom with two private terraces. According to CityRealty listings, this is just above the neighborhood median condo price, which ranges from $2.395 million for two-beds to $7.995 million for four-beds and up. However, the oversized floor plates, high-end finishes, and extensive amenity offerings may be factors in prices to attract well-heeled residents - Alex Rodriguez was recently spotted looking at Upper West Side apartments.

The sales launch comes at a time when the Upper West Side is further cementing its status as a cultural destination. The American Museum of Natural History alone has seen tremendous changes in the past few years: An expansion designed by MacArthur fellow Jeanne Gang is underway, and the new Hall of Gems and Minerals recently reopened.

Moreover, on Tuesday, June 15, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (“Landmarks”) is set to hear a proposal to remove the equestrian statue of Theodore Roosevelt at the Central Park West entrance. Activists have long disapproved of depictions of Black and indigenous people as subjugated, and the museum has proposed removing the statue and replacing it with a bronze plaque listing the former president’s accomplishments. Both Mayor de Blasio and the Roosevelt family agree with the museum’s decision, but its status as an individual landmark means Landmarks must also approve the decision.
Immediately prior to this hearing, Landmarks will review a proposal for an addition to the New York Historical Society, an individual landmark located down the street from the American Museum of Natural History. A presentation shows a design by Robert A.M. Stern Architects located on a museum-owned lot and intended to house a ground-floor sculpture garden, a rooftop garden and conservatory, the historical society’s extensive library collection, a new home for the Academy of American Democracy, and an LGBTQ+ museum, which would be the first of its kind in any museum in the United States. The New York Historical Society has long sought to expand; while previous attempts failed to find support, Community Board 7’s Preservation Committee voted to approve it in May 2021.

It remains to be seen how Landmarks will vote on the proposed measures, but the Children’s Museum of Manhattan won unanimous approval for its expansion in June 2020. In response to outgrowing its current address, the museum purchased the former First Church of Christ Scientist, an individual landmark at 361 Central Park West, with the intention of converting it into a large, state-of-the-art museum with a beautiful, historic exterior. FXCollaborative is at the helm of this adaptive reuse project.
For those who’d rather spend time outside, Lincoln Center recently opened The GREEN, a synthetic lawn installation that hosts live performances and invites New Yorkers to enjoy the open space. A short distance from Era, Amsterdam Avenue's Open Boulevards will host outdoor dining, cultural events, and community activities. Additionally, the city recently announced plans to provide $348 million for the rehabilitation of infrastructure in Riverside Park.
