● Tamarki Co., CL Investment Group
UWS conversion is now move-in ready
Development and architecture firm Tamarkin Co., in partnership with CL Investment Group, has announced that closings are nearly underway at 555 West End Avenue, the landmarked Beaux Arts school they have converted into 13 one-of-a-kind homes. Ready for initial occupancy, the Upper West Side condominium building’s lobby and amenity spaces, including the fitness center and residents’ lounge, have been recently completed.
Originally constructed in 1908, 555 West End Avenue’s residences include penthouses and townhomes with a private entrance on West End Avenue. The homes feature 12 to 20-foot ceilings and classic architectural details. No more than two residences grace each floor.
Features of the homes include eat-in kitchens with a library ladder to access the floor-to-ceiling cabinets and a butler’s pantry for even more storage space. Custom pocket doors allow the kitchen to be separated from the dining and living area, or opened up into one large space for entertaining. The building’s amenities include a 24-hour doorman, fitness center, stroller valet, residents’ lounge, recreation room with pool table, and additional cold storage and bike storage.
Pricing for current availability begins at $7.9 million for a four-bedroom, 4.5-bath flat. Sotheby’s International Realty and Compass Development are the co-exclusive sales and marketing firms for the project, with Cathy Taub and Alexa Lambert leading sales.

First look inside West Chelea’s Jardim
Jardim, the first U.S. residential development by Isay Weinfeld, the Brazilian architect and interior designer known for his hotels and high-end homes, has opened near the High Line in Manhattan’s West Chelsea neighborhood.
Developers Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group have released images of the building’s interiors — including a residence furnished by Weinfeld himself.
Jardim is the Portuguese word for garden and true to its name, this is a plant-filled property with a private, multi-level urban park that envelops the two 11-story towers that comprise the development. A brick-vaulted private tunnel connects West 27th and 28th Streets, leading to views of the garden’s greenery through a latticed wall in the lobby.
The development includes 36 residences ranging from one-to-four bedrooms and featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and terraces. Amenities include an indoor pool, as well as a fitness center and movement studio; men’s and women’s steam rooms and saunas; a children’s playroom, and parking. Douglas Elliman is marketing the property.
