0 comments
Crain's NY Business reported The Apthorp has been officially approved for condo conversion. State officials have approved the Upper West Side landmark building's condo conversion.

The Attorney General confirmed that the plan was accepted and closings can begin at the 163-unit building, which stretches one city block from West End Avenue to Broadway between 78th and 79th streets.

The Apthorp is one of Manhattan's most dramatic and most frequently photographed apartment buildings. The Apthorp was built in 1908 by the Astor family for wealthy New Yorkers. Many famous New Yorker's have resided at The Apthorp in rent regulated apartments.

The Apthorp apartments are grand and well detailed, the original suites have a room-sized foyer with a mosaic tile floor and there are glass-paneled French doors throughout.    

Current available Apthorp apartments range from 1 bedrooms to 5 bedrooms priced from $1,543,000 to $16.64M
