Developer Roe Corporation has announced the launch of sales at a mid-construction new development condo located at 470 Columbus Avenue, between 82nd and 83rd Streets.
The nine-story condo, called Charlotte of the Upper West Side, will offer seven floor-through apartments. Prices will start at $11 million.
Designer BKSK Architects has created plans to make the building sustainable, using the energy and ventilation standards of the German- based Passive House Institute (www.phius.org).
The building will feature “robust insulation and airtight seals [to] minimize air leaks and drafts, keeping rooms consistently comfortable and quiet, while reducing energy consumption to a small fraction of a traditional home’s consumption.”
Each apartment will also include “its own state-of- the-art, Swiss-engineered energy recovery ventilation (ERV) system that delivers fresh filtered outside air to each room of the home, consistently exchanging stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air.”

Roe Corporation’s principal, John Roe, says “Charlotte of the Upper West Side sets an extraordinary new benchmark for sustainable architecture with an emphasis on wellness and luxury in New York City. Our vision was to create an intelligently-engineered residential building, with integrated state-of-the-art systems designed to foster an exceptionally healthy and comfortable living environment.”
Building amenities will include a 24 hour doorman and concierge, full-time super, fitness room, interactive golf and sports simulator, pet washing room and private storage units.
Each apartment will have four bedrooms with en-suite baths, private elevator landings, separate laundry rooms with energy efficient Miele appliances, floor-to-ceiling windows, 20 x 47- foot kitchen-living-dining-rooms, and fully integrated lighting controls. The master bedrooms will also lead to 20 foot terraces.
There’s also a duplex penthouse with multiple terraces, as well as a garden unit.
Closings are expected to begin early 2021. To learn more, visit www.CharlotteUWS.com.
Prices start at 11 million? Who would ever pay that to live on Columbus Avenue? (And I don’t mean to insult the place –I like to walk down Columbus Avenue.) But let’s just say that it’s not CPW, or Fifth, or Riverside, or Park in terms of name recognition. 11 million?? Good luck, Charlotte.
