Closings Commence at Upper West Side Condo Conversion

Centurion Property Investors’ new luxury condominium residences at 212 W. 72nd St. on Manhattan’s Upper West Side have commenced first closings, with residents slated to move in this month. The building is reportedly a last-of-its-kind condo conversion project for New York City.  

The top-to-bottom renovation led by architecture firm CetraRuddy saw many of the former 196 rental apartments combined to create 108 one-to five-bedroom private residences. Pricing for remaining inventory ranges from$1.299 million to $19.15 million.  

“The new 212 W. 72nd St. is one of few condominiums in the immediate area to offer concierge services, a full suite of amenities, light-filled modern interiors, home layouts affording an array of sizes, top-of-the-line finishes and striking views of neighboring prewar facades,” said Centurion’s John Tashjian. “We have been blown away by how well it has resonated in the community.”
