101 West 78th Street, Upper West Side, Condominium Conversion The New Residences of 101 West 78th Street Are Available for 2017 Move-In; Brown Harris Stevens
Sales have launched for the highly-anticipated boutique condominium building at 101 West 78th Street. Buyers will be able to move in this year. New York-based developers, GTIS Partners, were the masterminds behind the rental-to-condominium conversion which lies directly across the street from the Museum of Natural History in the Upper West Side. This historic building has been thoughtfully transformed by HTO Architect with select residences designed by Stephen Sills, who's known for combining classical and modern elements in his design.

101 West 78th Street is a collection of 23 grand residences, spread throughout 8 stories and ranging from two-to-five bedroom homes, and a single full-floor penthouse. Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing is exclusively handling the sales and there are currently four listings on the market.
101 West 78th Street was completed in 1886 and designed by Belgian-born Emile Gruwe. The landmark conversion began in 2015 and encompasses 69,000 square feet. It features a timeless look with patterns of red brick and terracotta sculptures. The building also features completely redone layouts that have conceived large and luxurious residences.

Stephen Sills, a notable Architectural Digest “AD 100” designer reconfigured the building's lobby, amenity spaces and homes with great attention to detail. He also collaborated with Smallbone of Devizes to create high-quality custom kitchens while architect H. Thomas O'Hara Jr. of HTO Architect designed the residential floor plans to be efficient for modern-day living.

“We’re offering a rare opportunity –a combination of superior location, old-world architecture and modern design. It is unparalleled.”

These massive residences feature over 10’ ceilings, oversized wood windows, solid doors with Baldwin hardware, and refined Hyde Park moldings. The living spaces contain grand foyers, eat-in kitchens and formal dining rooms. Kitchens, bedrooms and corridors are outfitted with solid oak floors, as well as, striking herringbone oak flooring in the foyers, great rooms and dining rooms. As expected, the prewar building also acquired new plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems. Select homes feature gas fireplaces, wine storage and utility rooms with large capacity washer/ dryer.
The custom-made kitchens feature cabinetry in a white, hand-painted finish, and are joined by glass-fronted upper cabinets with antique brass hardware. White Carrara honed marble slab is used for the countertops and full-height slab backsplash. As an added bonus, all kitchens come with Miele appliances and filtered water dispensers.
Bathrooms are provided with sinks, fittings and accessories from Waterworks in addition to the Stephen Sills custom-designed millwork. The master bathrooms feature Snow White honed marble slab walls, Kaldewei 6' enameled steel tubs, and flooring with radiant heating. Other bathrooms offer Carrara marble herringbone-patterned floors, White Whisp marble tile shower walls, and Jura Grey honed marble countertops.
The building has a 24-hour attended lobby, fitness center, children's playroom, bike storage and a package room with cold storage. Private storage lockers are also available. Visit 101West78.com for more information about the development.
