The newly constructed 207W79 is a ground-up boutique condominium offering 19 residences from two-to-five bedrooms including two townhouses and one penthouse. Developed by Anbau, with interior and exterior architecture by Morris Adjmi, there are a host of nods to pre-war architecture and classic design details that distinguish the Upper West Side. The richly textured façade with historic detailing contextually fits with its surroundings; like the façade’s handcrafted terracotta panels that rise to the Art Deco inspired cornice detailing at the building’s crown. Nestled between Amsterdam and Broadway, residents of 207W79 are surrounded by some of the best shopping, dining, and cultural experiences in the city.
All units feature smart layouts with oversized room proportions and windows throughout. Light, space, and air earn high marks with grand layouts and plenty of oversized windows, particularly in the full floor residences with 50-foot long great rooms centered on a gas-burning fireplace. Views throughout showcase quiet tree-lined streets on the lower levels and vast views of Manhattan on the upper floors. Couple that with oversized bedrooms to match the grandeur, as well as luxurious design details, custom fixtures, and a choice of materials, well, there’s little doubt you’ll soon be calling this home.
Kitchens Great design details in the kitchens at 207W79 include integrated oak cabinets by Pedini in a beautiful warm brown tone with no pulls. The simple lines on the cabinet façades with beveled cutouts acting as pulls is quite sleek while the backsplashes and counters are all single slab Calacatta marble. The high-quality kitchen package with Wolfe, Miele, and Sub-Zero appliances comes standard. I like the marble shelf above the range with an extendable Miele vent (which vents out). There are plenty of outlets along the entire backsplash. The island is enormous with a breakfast bar, and there are two sinks in the kitchen, one oversized thick stainless steel, and another smaller utility sink.
Baths The master baths have curated design details including radiant heat floors artistically designed with white marble and porcelain inlay in a beautiful empire pattern. There is a high niche factor with some elegant niches in the wet room and tub area. The deep soaking tub scores high marks as it is a custom “Henry” tub from Waterworks. The custom medicine cabinets are also Pedini and have a beveled mirrored façade and are double-mirrored inside. Custom light fixtures, a large wet room with a rain shower head, and floor-to-ceiling Bianco Bello marble on all walls make for a truly luxurious master bath. One subtle detail that enhances the elegant feel of the space is the rounded marble edges on the vanity.
Penthouse & More The penthouse features an immense great room with a large kitchen all with 10.5-foot ceilings. There are extraordinary river views from multiple balconies and rooftop spaces. The marble shelves of the penthouse kitchen are a glamorous addition. The boutique condo offering 207W79 features a selection of amenities including a 24-hour door attendant, a fitness center, children’s playroom, and storage.
