Those hoping to cultivate a sense of community while living amidst the best of New York would be well advised to look to the Upper West Side. The area is flanked by two parks and home to city institutions like Lincoln Center, Beacon Theater, the American Museum of Natural History, and the New York Historical Society. It is also home to top schools, popular restaurants, and a variety of shops.

The Upper West Side comprises four distinct areas - Central Park West, Lincoln Center/Square, Riverside Drive, and Manhattan Valley - with their own history and community. While Morningside Heights is north of Central Park, many nevertheless consider it - and Columbia University - to be part of the Upper West Side.

The Upper West Side is substantially protected by historic districts, and local preservationists are fiercely protective of those that aren't. However, the area has seen a spate of eye-catching new residential development that manages to pay respectful tribute to the neighborhood's historic architecture while giving contemporary buyers the views, space, and amenities they have come to crave. We present a look at the most appealing new buildings on the market, as well as the new construction we're most excited to see.

555-West-End-Avenue-01 All images of 555 West End Avenue via Compass
555 West End Avenue was originally built in 1908 as a private Catholic school; more than 100 years later, its massive proportions, soaring ceilings, and tall windows would prove as ideal for high-end residential living as for an academic environment. The conversion was completed with the blessing of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and the elaborate facade was beautifully restored as a discreet penthouse was added and minor alterations were made. The school's library and gymnasium are now expansive condominiums with one-of-a-kind kitchens by Christopher Peacock, spa-like baths, and endless storage space. Amenities include an attended lobby with cold storage and stroller valet, state-of-the-art fitness center, and lounge with pool table and wet bar.

200-Amsterdam-Avenue-01 All images of 200 Amsterdam Avenue via Binyan Studios

All units enjoy incredible natural light, far-reaching views, open layouts, contemporary kitchens, and luxe marble baths. Residents were intended to receive a complimentary one-year membership to the nearby Lincoln Center, and amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, lap pool and spa area, children's playroom, professional-grade rehearsal room, wood-paneled library, and club room with billiards table.

Just outside the West End-Collegiate Historic District, a slender new condominium has topped out construction on the former site of legendary writer Dorothy Parker's childhood home. Fans of her work lobbied to save the Queen Anne-style townhouse, but it had sustained too much damage from the construction of 212 West 72nd Street (see below).

212 West 72nd Street was originally constructed in 2010 as a luxury rental, but is now in the midst of being converted to condos with interiors and amenities by CetraRuddy Architects. The one- through five-bedroom apartments will feature airy atmospheres, rich textures, soft neutral tones, and subtle metallic accents. Official amenities have yet to be confirmed, but Trader Joe's is just an elevator ride away, and the 72nd Street local and express subway stop is right across the street. An offering plan under review lists a $402.52 million sellout.

Amenities will include a golf simulator, pet spa, gym, and roof terrace.

Renderings of the new building show a masonry-inspired facade with a setback after the 15th story, and the apartments will be a combination of 80 microunits and 91 regular-sized units.

251 West 91st Street ODA Architecture
A few blocks down from 212 West 93rd Street (see above), another ODA-designed condominium is underway on the Upper West Side.

There will be no more than four units per floor, and amenities are set to include a bike room, central laundry room, children’s playroom, teen lounge, pet washing station, music practice room, fitness center with yoga room, lounge, and roof deck with outdoor pool. An offering plan has been filed with the name The Era Condominium, but a sellout price is not listed.

50-West-66th-Street-01 Rendering of 50 West 66th Street via Snohetta
Steps from Central Park and Lincoln Center, the former home of the Jewish Guild for the Blind's headquarters is set to become the tallest building on the Upper West Side. Its height is not the only thing to set it apart in the skyline: Renderings depict a building with limestone, bronze cladding, a glass curtain wall, and a uniquely tapered crown. The new tower will house a new synagogue and 127 condos with oversized windows and spectacular park and city views. Several private terraces will be discreetly incorporated into the design, and an amenity suite will include an indoor pool, spa, full basketball court, squash court, bowling alley, business center, and landscaped terrace.

Developed by Extell Development | Design by Stephen B. Jacobs Group
20 stories | 130 units | Completion estimated for 2023

2155-Broadway-01 Rendering of 2155 Broadway via Extell
In 2017, Extell Development purchased and subsequently demolished a Gristedes supermarket on the corner of Broadway and 96th Street. The developer also amassed air rights from co-ops along West 95th Street for a new building to measure approximately 277,000 square feet. There will be two retail spaces on the ground floor and condos starting on the second floor. Amenities will include a lounge, bike room, and several outdoor terraces. Community Board 7 appeared to appreciate the plans for a brick facade with large windows, but the inclusion of only one affordable unit raised some eyebrows.
