Façade installation is nearing completion on The Westly, a 20-story residential building at 251 West 91st Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by ODA Architects and developed by Adam America Real Estate and Northlink Capital, the structure will yield 52 units in two- to five-bedroom layouts with marketing by Ryan Serhant of SERHANT. Urban Atelier Group is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 91st Street.
Since our last update in mid-May, the construction elevator has been dismantled and more of the chevron-patterned limestone façade panels have enclosed the upper levels of the cantilevering structure. The only section awaiting completion is on the southern corner, which should be finished in the coming weeks. Sidewalk scaffolding still surrounds the southern and eastern ground-floor frontage.
The below photos show the rear elevation of The Westly, which features a flat façade.
The Westly’s penthouse units span approximately 3,500 square feet with more than 1,000 square feet of private outdoor space. They are fitted out with crema delicato marble-clad fireplaces, honed crema delicato marble kitchen countertops with a matching range hood, Waterworks polished nickel fixtures, Gaggenau appliances, and waterfall islands. Bathrooms are lined with honed Calacatta Gold and thassos mosaic flooring, Calacatta Gold marble slab walls and countertops, custom white lacquer oak vanities, Duravit floor-mounted toilets, Waterworks polished nickel fixtures, and radiant-heated floors.
The roof terrace will feature an outdoor swimming pool along the northern corner surrounded by landscaping and lounge seating, and will offer tenants 360-degree views of the Upper West Side with vistas of the Hudson River and the Midtown skyline. Other residential amenities include a double-height lobby with a curved staircase, a 24-hour concierge, a fitness center and yoga studio, a lounge, a children’s playroom, a youth gaming room, a music room, a bike storage room, a pet grooming station, and private storage units available for purchase.
The property is a short walk from the 96th Street subway station to the north, servicing the 1, 2, and 3 trains.
YIMBY expects The Westly to finish construction in early 2023.
