New renderings of the Upper West Side condo tower that replaced one of New York City’s oldest synagogues were revealed this week. In 2017, Congregation Shaare Zedek sold its synagogue at 212 West 93rd Street to developers Leyton Properties and Landsea Homes. Some local residents and preservation groups opposed the sale and pushed for the nearly 100-year-old building to be landmarked, but their efforts fell short. Now as the project nears completion, we’re getting an updated preview of the 14-story mixed-use condo designed by Eran Chen’s ODA New York and a peek inside its 20 luxury residences, 70 percent of which will have private outdoor space.

The property measures 65,000 square feet, with just under 40,000 square feet set aside for residential use. Three levels of the building will serve as the new home for the Shaare Zedek Congregation.

In typical ODA fashion, 212W93 boasts a unique boxy design and cantilevering sections that will allow for private terraces. Inspired by the aesthetic of the neighborhood, the building has a limestone facade with a concrete base with bronze accents. The sales team is describing the tower as a “vertical collection of individual residences,” which includes one- to four-bedrooms and some half and full-floor units.

Notably, most homes come with private outdoor space, a rarity in New York. Chen and ODA designed the building in a way that maximizes green space and encourages an indoor-outdoor living experience. GRADE designed the interiors, which include handcrafted millwork and large wood-clad windows.

Residents can enjoy shared amenities like a lovely rooftop terrace, 24-hour attended lobby, fitness studio, children’s playroom, a pet spa, bike storage, and additional storage for purchase. Sales are expected to launch in early 2021, with pricing starting at $1.875 million. Compass is handling sales and marketing for the building.
