YIMBY got a rare, private look at a unique new penthouse atop 360 Central Park West, an early 20th century building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Originally designed by Rosario Candela in 1929, the upper floors and interiors are now being converted and meticulously transformed into a spacious new condominium duplex designed by CetraRuddy Architecture. Located at the crossroads of Central Park West and 96th Street, the full-service prewar building is the only condominium on Central Park West that bears the prestigious Candela imprimatur.
A one-of-its-kind two-story home in the sky, Penthouse A boasts five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, massive common space, chef’s quality kitchen, abundant closets and storage space, and double-height windows overlooking incomparable Manhattan vistas from a vantage just above the verdant treetops of Central Park.
The main entrance on the 18th floor opens onto an impressive foyer with a large coat closet and sizable powder room outfitted with Noir St. Laurent marble and Waterworks fixtures. Beyond it is an oversized great room that will be finished with floor-to-ceiling windows and five-inch solid oak herringbone floors that continue throughout the space. Adjacent to the great room is a large formal dining room and a custom Christopher Peacock kitchen with carefully crafted millwork, hardware, a metal hood, Calacatta marble countertops, and Miele appliances.
Three sets of glass and steel doors lead out to a private, 1,065-square-foot wraparound terrace with panoramas spanning the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir and iconic Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Guggenheim Museum to the East; and Billionaire’s Row, the Empire State Building, and the dramatic steeple of One Vanderbilt to the South. With unobstructed views overlooking Central Park, every season will highlight nature’s vibrant changes.
360 Central Park West is a dog-friendly property and includes the following amenities: a children’s playroom; a private gym; storage lockers; bike storage; and a pet-washing facility. The penthouse will be offered with a studio apartment included in the purchase price. The address also sits directly next to the 96th Street subway station, serviced by the B and C trains.
Listed by Cameron Culver and Daniel Amell of Argo Residential, the apartment is scheduled to hit the market later this spring as the first unit in the final round of sales for the project.
