The San Remo is a residential cooperative building complex located on the Upper West Side in Manhattan overlooking Central Park, completed in 1930. The 27-story building houses 138 units.

The building is within Community District 107 and zoned for the following school - P.S. 087 William Sherman. Nearby transportation include the 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 6 Express, A, C, B, D, F, N, Q, R, W subway lines.

Who Designed the Building?

The San Remo has since been considered one of the masterpieces of architect Emery Roth after its opening in 1930. The tower design is loosely based off of the Giralda Tower in Seville, Spain.The building is well-known for its idiosyncratic ten-story twin-tower construction, clearly visible from Central Park. Its namesake is taken directly from the hotel that it once served as, with the co-op conversion happening in 1972. The building occupies two addresses 145-146 Central Park West, and features apartments with luxurious layouts and are accessed through two very extravagant lobbies.

All the San Remo apartments are deluxe in size with sprawling living rooms, separate dining rooms, libraries, 10 to 11-foot ceilings, many with breakfast rooms, and of course, sweeping views of the city and the park. Apartment sizes range from 1-5 bedrooms, with many of the larger units featuring private elevator landings. Penthouse units offer duplex and triplex layouts, magnificent terraces, and some with double-height ceilings.


What Luxury Amenities can Residents Expect?

Besides the grand floorplan, residents enjoy white glove building concierge, two extravagantly laid-out lobbies with 24-hour doorman service, a state-of-the-art fitness club, a community room, library, bicycle storage, a children's playroom, courtyard/garden, private storage units, and laundry.

How Much Does It Cost to Buy an Apartment?

Apartments are two-four bedrooms and prices range from $8.2 million to $16.8 million. Some more notable penthouses owned by celebrities have fetched higher sums. A triplex penthouse fetched about $45 million in 2017. Larger units generally, close for over $20 million.

Who Lives in the Building?

Some past and present famous residents include Tiger Woods, Demi Moore, Barry Manilow, Mary Tyler Moore, Glenn Close, Bruce Willis, Steve Martin, and Diane Keaton. The San Remo co-op board is famously lenient, and the only celebrity who was ever rejected was Madonna in 1985. Most of the showbiz crowd, however, have sold their shares. The building has seen a higher influx instead of finance and business types.
