30 Morningside Drive is one of five Beaux Art buildings being newly developed into rental buildings within the Morningside Heights neighborhood. Formerly owned by St. Luke’s Hospital, the building was built in 1896 and designed incorporating the latest French style of the era by distinguished architect, Ernest Flagg. The original structure took 32 years to complete. All of this historical landmark’s original limestone exterior and intricate compositions have been conscientiously renewed by award-winning architecture firm, CetraRuddy.
Spectacularly conceived and modernized both inside and out, the interior is bursting with state-of-the-art amenities, including: library, private dining area with kitchen, conference center, lounge, game room, pet spa, interior garden, children’s playroom, sauna, movement room, 3,000 SF fitness facility, and 24-hour concierge service. One could spend weeks within the sumptuous embrace of 30 Morningside and not feel the desire to leave.
The apartments include 11’ ceilings in select units and hardwood flooring throughout. All are equipped with high-end Bosch appliances, components from Restoration Hardware, and incorporate sleek, Italian-style kitchens. The brazen simplicity of the homes are thoroughly thought-out and expertly executed.
The building is situated on the corner of West 113th Street and Morningside Drive, across from Morningside Park and offers stunning views of the city. On the exterior, this pre-war low-rise apartment building is a refined example of Beaux Arts architecture, modernized. Its powerful, bold lines and glorious presentation harmonize as simultaneously awe-inspiring and accessible. The four towers framing the main building stand like grand sentinels, and, perched atop Morningside Heights, it feels right at home on the “Academic Acropolis.”
30 Morningside offers a bounty from the outside in, and its combination of grandeur and luxury, form and craftsmanship contend with any new development, anywhere in the city. View full details on Linecity.com–
