Fans of prewar architecture will want to take advantage of a reimagined residential, park-facing rental project in the heart of Morningside Heights.

Built between 1896 and 1928 and now a designated historic landmark, the Beaux Arts buildings of 30 Morningside Drive, at West 113th Street, were first designed by noted architect Ernest Flagg. Reimagined by award-winning architect CetraRuddy, all of 30 Morningside’s original finishes, limestone façade, wrought iron ornamentals, and verdigris, have been meticulously conserved and restored to their Gilded Age grandeur.

The property’s four pavilion towers and central carriage house span an entire city block facing Morningside Park and are surrounded by private landscaped gardens.

In addition to its park-side proximity, 30 Morningside Drive is conveniently located within minutes of Columbia University and Mount Sinai, iconic dining destinations like Hungarian Pastry Shop and V & T Pizzeria, and the 1, B and C subway lines.

The studio to 3 bedroom rental units boast custom-designed fixtures and finishes by Restoration Hardware, Nest smart thermostats and Latch smart access systems, Bosch washer/dryers and custom solar shades.

Kitchens feature Italian-crafted lacquer wood cabinetry, white quartz countertops, panelized refrigerators and dishwashers, and Bosch ovens, cooktops, and microwaves.

Bathrooms are equipped with Restoration Hardware obsidian black vanities, satin nickel fixtures and Herringbone pattern floor tiles.

Select units also come with 11’+ ceiling heights, private terraces, and views of both Central Park and Morningside Park.

The centerpiece of 30 Morningside Drive’s amenities package is The Carriage House, a stunning two-story lounge with a library, catering kitchen, residents’ bar and business center.
