The 18-story condo is still a year away from completion, but you can peek at the apartments in the sales gallery

Three weeks after sales launched at Robert A.M. Stern Architects’s Upper West Side condo near Zabar’s, developers on the project have now unveiled a sales gallery for the building located at 250 West 81st Street. Located about 10 blocks south of the building, the sales gallery offers a peek at the finishes that will be available in the finished building.

On the kitchens, Robert A.M. Stern Architects collaborated with the English cabinetmaker, Smallbone of Devizes. They will feature marble countertops, Gaggenau appliances, and chrome fixtures.

Typical master bathrooms will have white marble flooring, walls, and vanities; they will also have radiant heated floors, rain showers, and free standing soaking tubs. Aside from that, the apartments here will have tall ceilings heights, large windows, and oak flooring, hand-laid in a herringbone pattern.

The 18-story building topped out early last month, and when complete the condo will bring 31 new apartments to the neighborhood. Apartments here come in two-to-five-bedroom variants, and are priced from $3.9 million and go up to $16 million. Since sales launched three weeks ago, two penthouses have already gone into contract. Several other units at the Alchemy Properties-developed building are also in contract. The developer is handling sales on the property along with Stribling Marketing Associates. The first set of residents are expected to move in in January next year.
