Inside the Reimagined 212 West 72nd Street: New Condominium Residences Available on the Upper West Side


Ideally located at the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway overlooking Verdi Square, 212 West 72nd Street, an iconic modern Upper West Side building noted for its signature curved glass façade and dramatic presence, is undergoing a transformation into condominium residences, and has revealed its first available residences.

Built in 2010 as the neighborhood’s premier rental building and formerly known as “The Corner,” 212 West 72nd Street now offers 126 condominium homes ranging from one- to five-bedroom layouts, with initial inventory priced from $1.25 million to $8.3 million. Top New York-based design firm CetraRuddy has led the elegant redesign of these residences, including upgraded and completely re-envisioned interiors and a new suite of amenities.

As a luxury condominium, 212 West 72nd Street is setting a new standard for convenient, modern living with both a Trader Joe’s and Duane Reade within the building and the 72nd Street subway across the street. The residences range in size from 714 square feet to 3,070 square feet, with select homes also boasting spacious private terraces with cinematic Upper West Side views. Many also feature open floor plans that take advantage of the building’s curved glass façade, a concept that provides abundant light and commanding vistas that is specifically unique to 212 West 72nd Street.

Giving attention to the details that matter most, CetraRuddy took every opportunity to optimize storage, emphasize light and create flow throughout the residences. The firm selected a soft color palette of neutral tones, subtle metallic accents and unique textures to complement the light-filled interiors, and incorporated finishes such as white lacquer and quartzite in the kitchens, and white oak plank flooring throughout. In the custom kitchens, the cabinetry and countertops are not only designed for form, but also for function with plenty of storage spaces.

In the master bathroom, luxurious materials and thoughtful details create a private sanctuary. Custom-designed vanities by CetraRuddy feature polished nickel accents and large, deep drawers clad in a leathered textile.

Medicine cabinets offering abundant storage are framed by a lighted shadow box, and sconces accented by handmade crystal shades cast a romantic light. Showers are crafted with fluted glass panels set in a polished nickel frame, and soaking tubs feature a custom marble surround. Floor-to-ceiling marble walls and honed marble floors complete a sophisticated environment.

The transformation of 212 West 72nd Street includes all indoor and outdoor amenity spaces. Residents will arrive home to an elegantly redesigned lobby staffed with a full-time concierge. The softly illuminated double-height space features walnut paneling, custom-finished walls and archways, and terrazzo flooring.

On the building’s third floor, there is an all-new residents’ lounge that is designed to function as the building’s “great room” for city living, complete with seating areas and a landscaped outdoor terrace. Adjacent to the lounge is a children’s playroom, a light-filled room, complete with reading nooks and colorful banquettes, to be used for play, arts and crafts, reading, or homework.

The third floor’s windowed fitness center, designed by The Wright Fit, is a state-of-the-art offering. Outfitted with stationary bikes, treadmills and strength-training equipment, the space features stunning wood paneling and oversized windows overlooking the landscaped outdoor fitness space. This area can be used for yoga, meditation or private training sessions.

An impressive landscaped private roof deck crowns the 20-story building. Residents enjoy a sundeck with lounges, private entertaining spaces, barbeques and a cozy gas fireplace. Additional amenities and services include a full-time doorman, concierge access for dining arrangements and move-in services, a live-in resident manager, cold storage, bicycle storage and private residents’ storage.

The first completed model residences are now available to tour and experience, ahead of the building’s Spring 2021 opening to residents.
