Any real estate-savvy New Yorker knows that luxury apartments tend to be of the co-op and condominium variety (in other words, rattled with pesky move-in fees, intense applications and additional headaches). Well, this all changed when The Laney arrived on the Upper West Side earlier this year, perched prominently at 201 West 77th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.
As a boutique rental building boasting eye-catching historical charm (it was originally built in 1929 by architecture icon Emery Roth), The Laney immediately struck a chord with Manhattan house-hunters thanks to its remarkable amenities, condo-quality finishes and unbeatable location.
Move-ins have officially commenced, and it should come as no surprise that all studio and 1-bedroom units have been rented. But luckily for any families on the move, there are larger homes still available in the stunning 17-story property.
With prices starting at $7,250, units ranging from 2 beds and 2 baths to 4 beds and 3 baths are up for grabs at the moment, and given their unique credentials, they’re unlikely to sit on the market for long. After all, less than 5% of apartments in New York City feature true 3 and 4-bedroom floor plans (which haven’t been converted) — so this is truly a rare opportunity for a discerning tenant to score their dream home amidst the hustle and bustle of one of Manhattan’s most coveted neighborhoods. Additionally, the 3 and 4-bedroom spaces are elevated thanks to formal entry foyers, reminiscent of grand penthouses lining the likes of Park Avenue and Central Park West.
Completely reimagined by the top team at Peter Pennoyer Architects, The Laney’s flawless finishes include oak wood flooring, sleek Glassos countertops with Franke sinks, high-end Miele appliances, custom cabinetry, primary baths with heated stone floors and Waterworks fixtures plus smart entry doors. The HVAC can even be accessed via WiFi — yes, they thought of everything, and executed it to perfection.
When it comes to attention to detail, The Laney is second to none. Opulent, functional and fabulous, your Upper West Side abode awaits. While the area needs no introduction, any lucky resident will be steps away from the Beacon Theatre, Citarella, Equinox, the JCC and a slew of decadent dining options including the Michelin-rated Essential by Christophe and celebrity-loved Italian hotspot Salumeria Rosi.
