The Astor

235 W 75th Street, New York

Three legacy buildings on a full city block built by William Waldorf Astor in 1901 that were among the finest apartment houses in New York’s gilded age will now get a modern makeover by the largest developer/restorer of luxury pre-war buildings. This is heritage pedigree architecture that cannot be replicated in the most coveted Upper West Side family neighborhood.

The property was a flagship in an Astor portfolio that included The Waldorf-Astoria, The Apthorp and The Ansonia.  The distinguished façade designed by Clinton & Russell features unique grey brick, a rusticated limestone base, hand-carved Juliet balconies, and an imposing copper cornice.

High-end designers Pembroke & Ives have been commissioned to perform a down-to-the-studs, renovation that will transform the three buildings into one grand classically modern condominium residence. The completed building will have three separate wings, spaced apart by large bays, infusing each home with natural light.  A restored mosaic and stone carved detailed lobby, accented by a curated modern art collection and attended by a twenty-four hour concierge, will lead to a collection of comfortable, understated, and elegant three, four and five bedroom homes.  Expansive layouts will be spacious enough to be considered “horizontal townhouses.”

Here ­– belle époque elegance is being gracefully updated for 21st  Century ultra-luxury living. Wood-burning fireplaces, molded and beamed ceilings, built-in window seats and signature fixtures will be elevated by a state-of-the-art detailed renovation that will include open family kitchens, generously proportioned baths, and oversized master closets designed for today.  Family-friendly amenities will include a fitness center, children’s playroom and a private viewing park overlooking Broadway.
