Say hello to Charlotte.

Charlotte of the Upper West Side is named for a real child, but it’s a building inspired by—and designed for—her entire generation. Charlotte embodies our aspirations for a sustainable future in which intelligently designed buildings improve people’s health and wellbeing, while also being environmentally conscientious.

The building is designed to the German-derived Passive House standard, which is known for a reduction in energy usage of up to 90 percent for heating and cooling and exceptional air quality. Each residence has its own individualized ventilation and heating and cooling system so your air is both fresh and entirely your own.


“This building is defined not by how far above the ground we are but by how close we are to the principles that keep us grounded.

Wellness, Beauty, Form and Function.”

John Roe | Developer

Richly layered and crafted, the building’s Columbus Avenue facade draws inspiration from its neighbors in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District. BKSK Architects reinterpreted the artistry of 19th and early 20th century masonry landmarks with surfaces of velvety redbrick and fins of Italian-made terra-cotta.

BKSK designed the baguette-shaped terra-cotta fins to reduce incoming heat in the open kitchen-living-dining room’s expansive windows in summer, while allowing the winter sun’s rays to warm the interiors. The artisans of Italian manufacturer Sannini spent more than two years fine-tuning the distinctive iron-spot finish on the finely crafted fins and other unique custom profiles.

Charlotte of the Upper West Side is a sanctuary of wellness and sustainability in the heart of a beloved and historic Upper West Side neighborhood. Its seven full-floor residences artfully combine the highest level craftsmanship and finest materials with innovative wellness features and top-tier systems in every category.

The next generation of sustainable, performance-engineered architecture, now.

A handsome illuminated canopy welcomes you home to Charlotte of the Upper West Side. As you enter the lobby, you can see up-close the exquisite craftsmanship and distinctive finish of the terra cotta exteriors.

Finished in slabs of luminous Cream de Lyon limestone from France and featuring accent walls of FSC-Certified white oak, the lobby offers the services of a 24-hour doorman/concierge. A secure elevator opens directly into the private foyer.
