Welcome home to 393 West End Avenue, a storied building tastefully transformed for the modern era in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

Nestled in the coveted West End Collegiate Historic District, just one block from Riverside Park and the Hudson River, this rare pre-war condominium conversion features a collection of upscale residences that merge old-world charm with contemporary comforts and a series of garden-level amenities reminiscent of a private social club.

Originally designed by architects Goldner & Goldner and constructed in 1927, 393 West End Avenue features Collegiate Gothic architecture and original 1920s details that have been skillfully preserved by award-winning architecture and interior design firm, CetraRuddy. Making a lasting impression at first sight, the building features a restored limestone portal with a contemporary bronze-and-glass marquee. Exquisite antique bronze entry doors with one-of-a-kind lion medallions showcase the building’s 1920s heritage, while eye-catching plaster tassels harken back to the great opera houses of the era.

Inside, a sculptural stone concierge desk anchors the newly completed attended lobby, which features Bianco Spino and Grigio Collemandina mosaic floors, lacquered paneling and a soaring nickel leaf ceiling. Custom bronze-and-glass art screens — inspired by the building’s historic architectural details — create a seamless transition to the elevator bank that ascends to the residential floors.
