Upscale Townhouses & Quiet Tree-Lines Streets
Manhattan’s Upper West Side neighborhood is known for its quiet, tree-lined streets, upscale townhouses and numerable cultural institutions. It is bound on the west by the Hudson River, to the east by Central Park, and runs north and south between 59th and 110th streets. However, some also include Morningside Heights as part of the UWS, extending its reach to 125th Street and encompassing the Columbia University campus.
The Upper West Side is not only a great neighborhood in which to live, but it also provides many options for renting commercial office space. Those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Midtown—not to mention the high rents—will appreciate the slower pace and wide variety of building types available in the UWS.
Choose from a Diverse Building Stock
The Upper West Side is home to many architecturally significant buildings, from low-scale townhouses to large, iconic structures such as the Dakota on Central Park. The modern end of the spectrum encompasses quite a range, too, from glass cube at the American History Museum and the towering Time Warner Center.
Commercial tenants may find office spaces located on ground floors of buildings throughout the neighborhood, but the most options are available along major thoroughfares such as Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue or around Columbus Circle. The UWS is popular not only with professionals in law or finance, for example, but it is also ideal for doctors and dentists and others in the medical field, as well as those in creative industries, particularly media.
