The Apthorp, one of the most iconic and historic buildings on the Upper West Side, was built between 1906 and 1908 on what was then called "Bloomingdale Road," now known as Broadway. Designed by architects Clinton and Russell for William Waldorf Astor, the style is Italian Renaissance Revival and some say was modeled after the Pitti Palace in Florence. This stunning structure occupies the full block between Broadway and West End Avenue and between West 78th and West 79th streets. Arguably one of the most monumental and magnificent buildings in the city, The Apthorp is built around a large interior courtyard that is planted with flowers and greenery surrounding two ornate fountains. Originally meant for horse drawn carriages, today the courtyard is usable by residents to drive up in cars and be dropped off or to drop off luggage.
The Apthorp was designated a New York City landmark in 1969, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Today The Apthorp has been reimagined as a luxury condominium, while retaining all of its turn of the century grandeur and glamour. The Apthorp's 6,500 square foot amenities suite includes a private spa and fitness center, separate yoga/exercise studio, two treatment rooms with full baths, steam room, sauna, entertainment suite with bar, catering kitchen, integrated media and billiards, playroom and craft center, and individual storage rooms. There are two grand gates with doormen, one on the Broadway side and one on the West End Avenue side. Within the gates are 4 attended lobbies, in each corner of the building.
