NYC Neighborhood Spotlight: Our Favorite Upper West Side Renovations

Get up close and personal with some of our favorite Upper West Side renovations.

Surrounded by pristine greenery from both Central Park West and Riverside Park, plus some of the most iconic residential neighborhoods in Manhattan, the Upper West Side is a lively, bustling scene at any hour of the day. The rise in younger families moving to the neighborhood places us in the UWS often, handling everything from pre-war co-op renovations near Broadway to apartment combinations in Columbus Circle.

When we took on this co-op renovation on the Upper West Side, the dated pre-war space needed some love. The family recently purchased the Manhattan home near Broadway with the intention of reinvigorating the spacious property without losing the historic character. We updated the entire space with a classically-inspired interior, updated floors, custom millwork, a gut renovation of the kitchen and both baths, plus we replaced all the old cloth wiring.

For this Upper West Side pre-war apartment renovation near Straus Park, we reinvigorated the entire classic 8 space, including a complete overhaul of the kitchen, bathrooms, closets, and home office, then added new flooring and painted throughout. We successfully maintained and enhanced the pre-war charm with restoration and refinishing work throughout the apartment.

After living in her Upper West Side co-op for years and making various small renovations along the way, our client decided to go all-out and advance with her dream renovation after being eased into the significant decision by our full-service design-build approach, extensive pre-planning process, out of the box design strategy, and thorough estimate. The results of this stunning renovation speak for themselves. View the full UWS condo renovation before and after.

Manhattan Apartment Renovation | 91 Central Park West

This project found us renovating a beautiful pre-war co-op apartment at 91 Central Park West. The building, established in 1929, was designed by famed NYC architectural firm Schwartz & Gross, whose work also includes The Mark Hotel and many of the Neo-Renaissance residential buildings along Fifth Avenue, Park Avenue, and Central Park West. Our client purchased the unit in solid shape but the unique layout required quite a bit of ingenuity to meet their specific needs which prioritized a commercial-quality kitchen, enhanced office space, along with various other upgrades.

This Upper West Side co-op apartment renovation took place in the Lincoln Towers. The owners of this combined unit purchased the co-op with the intention of renovating the kitchen, bathroom, flooring, and closets. Our clients, both of whom are busy NYC professionals with children, were drawn to our full-service design-build model and expertise in navigating the complications associated with co-op renovations in NYC. We drove the entire renovation from start-to-finish, including the board approval process, procurement of all permits, design, and curation of the project, material procurement, plus the actual build.

This Upper West Side apartment renovation in a Columbus Circle co-op involved the horizontal combination of an existing one bedroom apartment with a newly purchased one bedroom unit next door. As is common with almost any renovation combining two apartments into one, the scope of construction included work being done in both units to ensure a uniform floor and ceiling height and proper integration of the electrical system. The project also included a full kitchen renovation in a mid-century Scandinavian design, plus renovation of a bathroom, new floors and doors, plus paint and general carpentry.

Upper West Side Pre-War Co-Op Gut Renovation

For this co-op gut renovation on the Upper West Side, we worked with the client to find a design that tastefully married various styles to create a more open, functional, and overly pristine lay-out. The look required a gut renovation of the space, including opening up the living room, new closets in the hallway, a total revamp of two bathrooms and the kitchen, and updated oak flooring throughout.

Upper West Side Luxury Condo Renovation

A recent UWS project found us delivering a stand-out condo renovation for a young family with an elevated sense of style and willingness to go bold. Since the building is relatively new, our revamp didn’t require a full gut renovation, rather an aesthetic upgrade across various priority areas in the luxury space. Our work included a complete kitchen renovation and bar redesign, three bathroom renovations, an office renovation with custom millwork, plus paint and various custom features throughout.
