With its bold design from ODA Architecture, The Westly is a classic reimagined to empower modern denizens to elevate their expectations, gaze beyond what’s expected, and ultimately, reach for more. The Westly pays homage through its materials to the timeless DNA of the Upper West Side while elevating livability with its progressive design. Exterior details pull from the surrounding neighborhood, from subtle art deco expressions of the window mullions to beautifully cut stone angling around the uniquely formed axis.
Solid masonry bones ground its foundation, giving the building a deep limestone facade that allows large-scale windows to project out for more generous views. The result is an instant classic that represents a clear evolution within its context; a love letter to the Upper West Side’s past and future. Punctuating the textured richness of the Upper West Side’s ubiquitous brownstones, the smooth brightness of limestone stands out with an inimitable quality. As the sun reaches The Westly’s extraordinary facade this iconic NYC material dances with light, reflecting an ever evolving perception of its silhouette.
In a bold return to the pre-war layouts so well loved in the Upper West Side, The Westly residences offer defined, independent spaces separated formally by corrdiors and foyers-a welcome distinction among its new-construction contemporaries. The result are homes that care extraordinarily well to all households, providing generous natural light, clarity in composition, and lasting quality.
Airy and bright, each unit is a study in modern sophistication. Natural light pours in through oversized windows, and wide plank oak floors provide a warm, organic palette for any design style. Kitchens are polished yet practical, equipped with gleaming cremo delicato marble slab countertops, mosaic marble backsplashes, sleek Waterworks fixtures, marble-clad oven vents, custom walnut finish cabinets, Wasteking garbage disposals, and fully-integrated high-end Gaggenau appliances.
Primary bedrooms at The Westly can easily accommodate king-size beds, dressers, nightstands, and more. They are exceptionally quiet, and they each have spa-like en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets. Honed marble slab walls and mosaic marble tiled floors are bold and luxurious. Polished nickel Waterworks faucets complement a custom double vanity. Glass-enclosed walk-in showers are adorned with rain showerheads and thermostatic control. Many primary bathrooms also come with deep soaking tubs.
Exuding timeless luxury and contemporary urbanity, a pair of trophy penthouses offer endless city views and exclusive rooftop terraces. Natural light seeps across expansive 3,000 sq. ft. layouts from sunrise to sunset. Airy 11-ft ceilings add a sense of grandeur. Separate kitchens echo the style and sophistication of the city’s past, while premium Gaggenau appliances and gas-burning fireplaces clad in crema delicato marble are nods to the present and future.
Every window is a frame for postcard views of the Hudson River and the city skyline. Sublime rooftop terraces are ideal for alfresco dining, entertaining, sun lounging, moon gazing, and more. Opening the bronze-detailed oak doors into the herringbone-patterned oak floor foyer, the rich-materiality is palatable. Vibrant details make every step a new discovery: custom doors and moldings, crema delicato marble cladded fireplaces*, Bosch washer and dryers, and multi-zone HVAC systems.
Emanating the upscale and intimate feel of a private club, the generous amenities at The Westly effortlessly elevate daily life with a splash of singular style. In a refreshing twist, the second floor was reserved for amenity spaces, with large windows just along the treeline cultivating a human connection between sanctuary-like spaces and the street life just below.
The Westly sits just off Broadway in the vibrant Upper West Side neighborhood. Known for its elegant townhouses and apartment buildings as well as its culinary and cultural variety, the Upper West Side offers residents an upscale lifestyle and easy access to two of the city’s best green spaces in Riverside Park and Central Park.
Whether it’s a weeknight out or a weekend brunch, most restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops can be found on Broadway and Columbus, and Amsterdam Avenues.
