    Just what I expected, from exactly the person I expected it.

    Sorry MTG, I forgot that you can do no wrong.

    ^ Well, everyone may hate the building, but I think the living room (in the Residences gallery) is marvelous, and what a stunning view . Kitchen very small, though.

    Flashy New 200 West Opens Monday, Gives Preview Today

    CURBED

    The Upper West Side's glassy newcomer at Broadway and 72nd Street, a luxury rental building dubbed 200 West, has dropped its construction shed and fully launched its website, showing off all sorts of goodies. Immediately we're drawn to that rooftop terrace, with major views, an open-air fireplace (perfect for cooking up some dogs and saving a trip to Gray's Papaya across the street) and a 12' misting wall and adjacent wet bar for keeping things cool. Along West 72nd Street is the lobby, "a sequence of three distinct spaces" and the way into the rental units at The Corner, as the gang at the Gotham Organization calls it. The foyer is topped by a ginormous chandelier with, count 'em, 1,750 LED-lit crystals. Further inside is reception, all brown and beige with travertine floors and limestone walls, plus a 15' bronze wall. That leads to the "glass corridor" that shuffles to the elevators, and up to a plethora of floorplan options given variety by the building's obtuse angle and wicked overhang.

    The building also has a second website set up to lure additional retail clients. Already Trader Joe's has laid claim to over 20,000 square feet, most of it safely situated deep underground (the opening is now scheduled for autumn). If cash is crucial there'll be a Bank of America filling up the broad curve of The Corner window and taking up nearly half the ground floor. The full second floor with adjoining mezzanine is still up for grabs, and anyone looking to have their name up in lights over Broadway might want to take a look.

    As for rents on the apartments in the Handel Architects-designed building, the kind lady that picked up the phone in The Corner office told us that the official grand opening is Monday, and interested renters can right this very second schedule an appointment to hear the full spiel. In other words, they're not saying. At least not yet. But one thing we know: Chandeliers of insanity and freaky glass chambers don't come cheap.

    Shed is down and sidewalk open. The uninterrupted glass along the base is really reflective under bright blue skies ...







    Where the Bank of America will go ...





    Second floor retail is still available ...



    Easy access to transportation ...





    From the west ...



    Sharp edges on the SE lead to some "unexpected layouts" ...

    At least the schlongs who built this didn't raze these four little gems to the west.




    This POS Sleepys/Gray's Papaya must go!

    Yeah, that patch of blue above really needs to get filled in.

    I have to say that, despite the apparently dated use of vertical fins and glass, that this building possesses a certain style. It has presence, and asserts itself confidently. Handel's office continues to impress me with their ability to pull off old styles with a new twist. Also, for Gotham, this is easily one of their best projects. They've been elevated here. And while it's sad what was lost- the smaller scale brick structures- this really does make up for it.

    Could be worse. Even has real curved glass. Too bad they couldn't make those ground floor "louvers" curved too.

    I looked at some rentals available here. Kinda expensive - most 1 bedrooms were > $4k per month. They are giving 1 month free on 13 month leases. Gym and breakfasts are free.

    That seems reasonable for the area.

    New Rental Building Saves UWS From Bad Style

    July 23, 2010, by Joey

    We know all about the crazy success of new Upper West Side building The Corner, where apartments with astronomical rents (including 25 units priced over $10k/month) are being snapped up like it ain't no thang. But little did we know that the building has actually made the entire neighborhood less schlubby! Daily News scribe Jason Sheftell explains:
    The building, which sits across the street from the 72nd St. and Broadway 1/2/3 subway stop, has set records for local rents and brought a more stylish resident to a neighborhood where sweatpants, spectacles and bad hair were considered in vogue for almost half a century.
    The new UWS haute couture? Sferra robes, which come in gold-ribbon-wrapped boxes for each new Corner renter. We're saving ours to re-gift on Festivus.

    Someone must like it, if it's renting like it's the last apt building with vacancies in NYC.
