Even before The Chamberlain opened for immediate occupancy last fall, its timeless combination of classic touches and modern luxury attracted considerable attention (and contracts!). Now that the building is reported to be one-third sold, we take a closer look at the aesthetics, amenities, and accommodations that have proven powerful draws for buyers.

Impeccable Design
269-West-87th-Street-2 Entrance
The Chamberlain’s Art Deco-inspired design by FX Collaborative nods to the Upper West Side’s history. Its light-colored façade, intricate brickwork, and elegant ironwork are a beautiful marriage of classic elements and contemporary touches. The 17-story height allows for gorgeous sky and cityscape views yet remains respectful of its historic surroundings.

Expansive and Exquisite Apartments
269-West-87th-Street-3 Kitchen
As the apartment sizes show, The Chamberlain was clearly designed with growing families in mind. All 39 two- through five-bedroom units boast interiors by Alexandra Champalimaud, soaring ceilings, bronze-accented oversized windows, a gracious entry gallery, and expansive proportions. Custom kitchens by Champalimaud come equipped with Smallbone of Devizes cabinetry and high-end appliances.
269-West-87th-Street-4 Master suite
These features have made their way into a 4,099-square-foot penthouse that has just come on the market, and it is further set apart by its private elevator foyer, two separate entrances, and private roof terrace with Hudson River views. All five bedrooms have custom millwork, and a spacious master suite enjoys a Juliet balcony, walk-in closet, dressing area, and five-fixture bath.

Prime Amenities and Location
269-West-87th-Street-5 Fitness center
Building amenities include a children’s playroom, curated library, fitness center, and sports court surrounding a garden courtyard. The Chamberlain is conveniently located near Central Park, Riverside Park, and Upper West Side mainstays like Zabar’s, Barney Greengrass, and Café Lalo. The nearby 86th Street subway stop allows for an easy commute anywhere in New York.

Religious Accommodations
269-West-87th-Street-6 Lobby
While many Upper West Side buildings enjoy gorgeous architecture, beautiful apartments, and plentiful amenities, The Chamberlain is distinguished by its accommodations for observant Jewish families. The elevator has a special mode to operate automatically on the Sabbath, and the front door has the option to turn off the electricity. Residents have the option to wire their blinds and lighting on individual timers, use smart appliances, and include two dishwashers and a hot plate in their homes. Additionally, a consultant is on hand to guide parents through the private school, Jewish day school, and yeshiva application processes.

Remaining availabilities at The Chamberlain start at $3.625 million for three-bedrooms, $4.69 million for four-bedrooms, and $10.5 million for five-bedrooms. At an average of $2,130 per square foot, it is well above the Riverside Drive/West End Avenue average of $1,475 per square foot (per CityRealty data).
