Price Buster: 44 West 62nd Street, 2-C
Hard to imagine an apartment of this size, for this price, in this neighborhood. But this co-operative residence, in the heart of the Lincoln Square District, offers more than 1000 square feet just steps from the world’s finest cultural institutions, recreational playgrounds and most expensive homes – think Billionaire’s Row and 15 Central Park West.
Apartment 2-C at 44 West 62nd Street (aka Lincoln Plaza Towers) is now being offered for $795,000, more than 20% off the original price of $975,000. It was first listed in March 2020. Talk about ready to sell.
This sun-filled corner one bedroom is spacious by anyone’s definition, at approximately 1,050 square. While the original floor plan shows a one-bedroom with a dining area, the apartment can easily accommodate a nursery or home office. Apartment features include an additional half bath, plentiful closet space, including a walk-in, central air and ceilings north of nine-feet. Despite the low floor, the apartment is flush with light; both the bedroom and the living room enjoy multi-pane bowed windows.
Sure, the apartment needs some upgrades. But the bones are here. And the Upper West Side location can’t be beat. The last C-Line apartment to sell was a high-floor unit that sold in June 2017 for $1.2 million. Apt 10-C, which was recently asking $975,000, is now under contract.
Lincoln Plaza Towers is a 31-story tower located at the southeast corner of Columbus Avenue and West 62nd Street, across from Fordham University. There is a full-time doorman as well as a resident manager. Building amenities include a semi-circular driveway, parking garage, fitness room, bike storage and private storage. Of course the biggest amenities are just outside your door: Lincoln Center and Central Park.
