YIMBY recently took a tour of West End & Eighty Seven, a recently completed residential building at 269 West 87th Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, between West End Avenue and Broadway. Designed by FXCollaborative, the 17-story, 215-foot-tall edifice features a detailed exterior made of intricately laid bricks, with patterns that delicately catch the sunlight against their warm-colored finish. Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing is handling sales, and Champalimaud Design is the interior designer.
Inside are 38 homes spread across 114,884 square feet of pet-friendly space that range from two- to five-bedroom layouts. Occupancy is underway, with three-bedrooms asking $1.85 million, four-bedrooms $2.95 million, and five-bedrooms for $4.5 million. The following finishes come with each unit: Wide plank flooring; formal entry galleries
with powder rooms featuring mosaic marble floors and Bardiglio Nubolato marble walls; oversized casement windows; pocket doors; master bedrooms with double walk-in closets, private marble en-suite bathrooms with dual sinks, a walk-in shower, and a deep soaking tub; Smallbone of Devizes kitchens with marble countertops, matching backsplashes, custom cabinetry, Miele dishwashers, Wolf stoves, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and an under-cabinet wine cooler; ten foot ceiling; Juliet Balconies; and Nest climate control in every room for year-round comfort.
Residential amenities include a 24-hour doorman and concierge, fitness center, a children’s playroom and recreational room with a basketball hoop, rock climbing walls, a retractable movie screen, a private landscaped courtyard, private storage rooms (for purchase), bicycle storage, and a library with a book collection and a fireplace. There was some minor remaining mill work and lighting that was wrapping up, but occupancy for 269 West 87th Street is well underway.
YIMBY also got a chance to take in the views from the very top of the property that overlooks the Upper West Side, with views of the Hudson River, the George Washington Bridge, Broadway from above, and a whole bunch of wooden water towers with adjacent roof gardens topping a wide spectrum of architecturally diverse buildings.
The nearest subways are the 1 train at the 86th Street station along Broadway, while Riverside Park and Central Park are also a short walk from the front doors. The American Museum of Natural History is about fifteen minutes by foot, while the A, B, and C trains at the 86th street station are found on Central Park West.
