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.

The 16-story building, constructed in 1927, was originally designed by architects Goldner & Goldner. Its prewar design features Collegiate Gothic architecture and original 1920s details that were thoughtfully preserved by CetraRuddy. There are antique bronze entry doors and decorative lanterns, a restored limestone portal, a contemporary bronze and glass marquee, a unique lion medallion that harks back to the 1920s, and plaster tassels. Inside, the 24-hour attended lobby boasts a concierge desk crafted from sculptural stone, Bianco Spino and Grigio Collemandina mosaic floors, lacquered paneling, and a soaring nickel leaf ceiling, while the elevator bank features custom bronze and glass art screens.
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.
Residences at 393 West End seek to preserve the site’s historic grace while integrating modern elements. Living and dining spaces include French chevron-style wood floors, while the open kitchens are equipped with appliances by Miele, custom cabinetry made from smoked oak wood and fluted glass, and Naica Quartzite countertops and backsplashes. Primary bedrooms boast neutral colors and large seated windows, while bathrooms feature honed Pacific white marble walls, custom white lacquer vanities, and elegant sconces. Secondary bathrooms and powder rooms include diamond-pattern Calacatta gold marble mosaic floors, custom vanities, and additional marble accents.
Located on the building’s garden level, the 4,000 square feet of amenity spaces, which were also meticulously crafted by CetraRuddy, offer the privacy of an in-house club and feature bespoke furniture and eye-catching artwork paired with thoughtfully selected details and finishes. The Great Room offers private nooks for remote work, while the Club Room is ideal for entertaining. The lounge features moveable furniture that can be configured for gaming or studying, and the Cottage is a children’s playroom that was inspired by an enchanted forest. Additional perks include a fitness center with a private movement studio, a pet spa, and a private garden with formal seating and banquettes.
