School conversion hits market
555 West End Avenue, a collection of 13 one-of-a-kind condominium residences made from a landmarked private school, has just launched sales.
Developed by Tamarkin Co. and CL Investment Group, homes feature all the hallmarks of a conversion on the Upper West Side – soaring ceiling heights, towering windows, and a refined palette.
Tamarkin Co. transformed the signature spaces found in the circa-1908 school, such as the gymnasium and the library, into specialized residences that feature details such as a 20 ft. barrel-vaulted ceiling in the former gym (now part of an $18 millionpenthouse), floor-to-ceiling windows, private terraces, and a 42 ft.long great room in the library.
Pricing for current availability starts at $7.9 million for a four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom flat, and initial occupancy is slated for early 2019.
“555 West End Avenue is driven by amazing historic architecture, spirit and light – all the pillars that New York’s greatest buildings have been built on,” said Cary Tamarkin, founder and chairman of Tamarkin Co.
“These homes are certain to resonate with buyers who appreciate authentic design and are looking for the experience of a private mansion but with the ease of condominium living in a prime Upper West Side location.”
