Marketing began in 2008 for the Adagio, a 9-story
residential condominium building with 41 units at 243 West 60th
West End Development, an affiliate of LHL Realty
Inc., of which Lawrence Ginsberg is a principal, is the developer.
H. Thomas O'Hara is the architect and Andres
Escobar has designed the interior spaces.
West End also has plans for two rental apartment
buildings with a total of about 300 units at the site, one 27
stories and one 17-stories. Linda Fenn, senior vice president
Prudential Douglas Elliman, said that the rental buildings will
follow the development of the Adagio.
The building's apartments have fireplaces and
Allmilmo Kitchens have appliances and fixtures
by Sub Zero, Bosch, Dornbracht, Miele and Gaggenau with Ipe Brazilian
hardwood floors, Caesar Stone countertops and Macassar wood complements
and a wine cooler.
Master baths have Allmilmo Wenge woodwork and
vanities, Zuma tubs, radiant-heated limestone floors, rain-style
showerheads, and Statuary Venatino and Thassos marble walls.
The building has a lobby with a fireplace,
a garage, a 24-hour doorman, a fitness center and a 40-foot indoor
swimming pool overlooking a formal garden and a tennis court.
Initial pricing for the one-, two- and three-bedroom
apartments ranged from about $860,000 to about $3,000,000.
