    207 W 79th is a 19-unit, 13 story condo building designed by Morris Adjmi Architects to embrace the rich architectural history of the Upper West Side. Flawlessly blending into the storied neighborhood, it’s easily one of the finest additions in recent years.


    Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Anbau Enterprises (who specialize in high-end residential NYC property), 207 W 79th fits seamlessly into the Beaux Arts vision of the Upper West Side. The textured façade matches the ornate nature of the neighborhood with limestone giving way to buff tone brick and rising to the corniced top. The oversized casement windows further add to the intricate look and feel, wrapping around corners to provide a stunning view for the residents within.

    The residences beautifully combine sleek modern day living with the rich detailing of the building’s exterior.  All of the residences are built with to maximize space with open plan living and large, virtually floor to ceiling windows. The floors in the common areas are a completed in a mansion weave parquet pattern to tie the modern interiors to the detailed exterior. They’ve offset that texture with simple and refined details, like white bronze hardware for the doors and in the bedrooms, where visual simplicity is a priority, the flooring changes to plank flooring and large casement windows.

    In the townhome units, the luxe attention to detail extends to the private terraces. The terraces come complete with a range of shrubs, grasses, and flowering trees like the Dogwood to provide shade and aromatic ambiance. The planters are faced using Brazilian ipe, the same hardwood used for the Coney Island Boardwalk. The hardwood continues onto the outdoor kitchens, which include stainless steel grills and durable, smoked gray granite countertops.

    The penthouse also makes use of private outdoor living space with 2,000 square feet of private balcony and both south and west facing views. 36 inches of these 2,000 feet are occupied by a top of the line stainless steel grill and smoke gray granite counter tops to accompany the outdoor dining area. Inside, like the full floor units, the penthouse features a 50-foot wall of oversized casement windows and an open gas fireplace for the ultimate comfort.


    Residents can enjoy a 24-hour concierge, a beautiful marble and hardwood lobby, fitness studio, storage areas (including bike storage) and a playroom.

    The Upper West Side remains a cultural hub of the city, with the Museum of Arts and Design, the Lincoln Center, and Columbia University all calling it home. It’s also littered with live performance venues such as the Metropolitan Opera, Beacon Theater, Alice Tully Hall, Symphony Space, and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

    It’s also bordered by two of the city’s largest parks for year-round access to greenery and open space. And with good restaurants like Good Enough to Eat sprinkled over the neighborhood, it’s no wonder so many people want to call it home.
