In the southeastern corner of the Upper West Side lies the Park Laurel, a post-modern yet classically-inspired condominium steps away from Central Park. Near a number of famous Manhattan residences, the Park Laurel stands firm on its own. With Lincoln Center and some of New York City's most useful subway lines only a short walk away, 15 West 63rd Street is a convenient and desirable address to call home.
As modern as the Park Laurel may be, having been built in 2002, it still has a number of hints at New York's past. Intricate solid wood floors reflect light coming in through oversized windows, and contrary to recent trends, rooms are smaller and more intimate. Kitchens contain a posh mix of white-lacquered cabinetry and dark granite counters with back-lit cabinets and accented pendant lighting. Top-of-the-line appliances are custom-built to fit in with the surrounding décor rather than contemporary eclectic design. A number of the condos for sale at the Park Laurel have stunning Central Park views rivalling those on Central Park West and South.
The Park Laurel does, however, live up to its relative youth with a number of modern amenities. Residents have access to a private fitness center with a separate spinning room and additional storage, and each condo for sale has a personal washer and dryer. In addition, the Park Laurel has both 24-hour concierge and doorman service. With a great location, superb design, incredible views of Central Park, and a wealth of amenities, it goes without question why 15 West 63rd Street is an Upper West Side hot spot.
