Tamarkin Co. and Cheerland Investments kicked off sales today for the school-to-condo conversion at 555 West End Avenue. The building is topped by The Solarium Penthouse, a spot that once served as the school’s gymnasium.
Located one block from Riverside Park at 87th Street, and surrounded by the opulent apartment houses of West End Avenue, 555 West End Avenue’s historic Beaux-Arts architecture harkens back to the neighborhood’s old-world sense of fine craftsmanship.
Developers have maintained the spirit of the building’s history, meticulously restoring original details like beautifully carved stone facade elements and limestone window bays.
555 West End Avenue houses a total of 13 units, ranging in size from 2,716 square feet to 3,474 square feet. Units are available in three- to five-bedroom floorplans.
A fresh batch of renderings found on the official site gives us our first up-close look inside the landmarked building’s new homes. The modern residences feature soaring ceiling heights, open layouts, and oversized windows.
Notable amenities include a fitness center, bike storage, superintendent and available storage space. There’s also a stroller valet and a rec room featuring a wet bar with stools, a pool table, dart board, lounge chairs and a big-screen TV.
Pricing for available units starts at $7.9 million.
