If you are thinking of buying in Midtown west, take a look at Worldwide Plaza. This condo was built in 1988 by William Zeckendorf Jr and occupies an entire city block from 49th to 50th street between 8th and 9th avenue. There’s a 39 story tower on West 50th street, a 7 story tower on West 49th street, a 40 story office tower, a few townhouses and a public square.
2 laundry rooms per floor
many subway lines
Access to the Theatre Distric, Times Square, Rock Center…
Some of the interior hallways and lobby give a hotel like feel and monthly charges are a touch high but not ridiculous given the amenities.
Current availabilities range from $569k for a 375 sqft studio to a reasonable $1,820,000 for a 2bd/2ba in 350 W 50 street.
Rentals range from $2400 for a studio up to $7200 for a 2bd/2ba with 3 other 2 bedrooms available from $4600 to $5800.
Monthlies are a little on the high side averaging around $2.85 per sqft. So a 1000 sqft apartment will run you around 2800 per month in taxes and common charges.
