Evoking a level of fine bespoke detailing and custom finishes throughout, 300 West’s 170 residences, comprised of a mix of studios-to-four bedrooms, will feature a perfect balance of beauty, form, and function. Lined with custom white oak herringbone floors, the spacious and airy layouts will offer an abundance of natural light through oversized large windows, filling residences with warmth and elegance.
Each graciously proportioned kitchen features custom white oak cabinetry, Carrara marble countertops, and backsplashes, and a premium appliance package including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, freezer and integrated ice maker, Wolf oven and gas range, and Cove dishwasher.
Within the master bathrooms, white oak vanities with integrated double-sinks with chrome fixtures will be present, along with Honed marble countertops, Calacatta Eve walls, and custom Bianco Real mosaic floors. A chrome rain shower head with thermostatic controls and a hand shower will offer everyone a spa-like experience in-home.
Additionally, select units will have private terraces with scenic views of Harlem looking south, the surrounding neighborhood, and midtown Manhattan’s famed skyline, as well as 10-foot ceilings and walk-in closets and Summit wine fridges.
With two alluring lobbies to welcome residents and their guests home that is appointed with custom-designed marble floors and furnishings, 300 West’s amenities include the first and only pool in the neighborhood, along with a beautiful rooftop terrace with an outdoor kitchen and grills as well as a courtyard, working library and a comprehensive health and wellness club. Additionally, a children’s playroom with performance stage and game room are on-site, along with valet parking and a bike room + more.
300 West’s stunning interiors are complemented with architecture by the acclaimed New York-based firm, Issac & Stern Architects, best known for their wide portfolio of residential, commercial, and cultural commissions. 300 West’s exterior is comprised of limestone piers and hand-selected elongated bricks that mark an important nod to the past and a reference to the historic, surrounding urban fabric.
Undulating in a step-like fashion as the building scales upward towards the sky, oversized windows that allow an abundance of natural light set with metal mullions ultimately transform to sweeping arches at the penthouse level.
Developed by Bespoke Living, a division of Happy Living Development, the highly anticipated building recently topped out and is set to commence closings in less than six months. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is handling sales and marketing.
