Amid a spate of supertall skyscrapers, this luxury condominium development designed by ODA and GRADE stands out for offering an intimate place to call home. There are just 20 residences in total, each with its own character that shapes the overall architecture of the building. Together, they form a “vertical collection of individual homes” in the midst of one of New York’s most desirable neighborhoods: the Upper West Side. In fact, its location is one of its most valuable amenities, paired with 24-hour service and a rooftop terrace with awesome views.

Often, exterior architecture defines interior design. With this unconventional and exclusive building designed by ODA, it’s the opposite. The design of each residence shapes the overall structure, resulting in a deconstructed facade that expands or contracts to allow private outdoor space for most of the homes. “The various residential layouts create a rhythm of projections and setbacks, creating moments of surprise and discovery,” explains Eran Chen, ODA’s founding principal.
The Upper West Side is brownstone New York; it’s Lincoln Center, the New York City Ballet, and the Metropolitan Opera; it’s smoked fish from Barney Greengrass and Zabar’s. This is a neighborhood with deep roots, storied architecture, and cultural institutions. And then there’s Central Park, the 843-acre National Historic Landmark that spans 51 blocks from north to south and three avenues from east to west and includes fountains and lakes, playgrounds and walkways, wide open green spaces and manicured gardens.
There are no cookie-cutter apartments here. Nearly all the 20 residences, which range in size from one bedroom to four bedrooms, have a unique layout. What they do have in common is exquisite design by GRADE New York. Expect custom millwork, hand-selected materials, and the kind of attention to detail normally reserved for private houses. Of note? The bespoke kitchens feature custom cabinetry, Volakas marble, and Miele appliances. There’s also an emphasis on the flow of living, from indoors to outdoors, facilitated by open layouts, oversize windows, and private terraces.
The amenity offerings at 212 West 93rd Street are carefully curated to offer everything residents need. There is a 24-hour attended lobby, a fitness studio, a children’s playroom, a pet spa, and bike storage. And all around, there is the Upper West Side—with its parks, museums, theaters, restaurants, and much more—as a backdrop and playground for a sophisticated lifestyle.

Located at the corner of 79th Street and within the landmark West End-Collegiate Historic District, 393 West End is the work of development firm Rabina, who transformed the iconic Upper West Side prewar building into a collection of 75 one- to four-bedroom residences, many with views of the Hudson River. These homes’ elegant, warm tones draw inspiration from French design elements. Award-winning architecture and design practice CetraRuddy led the redesign, placing an emphasis on preserving the historic charm while incorporating contemporary conveniences.
