The Century is one of the four iconic twin towered apartment buildings on Central Park West and long an unofficial neighborhood landmark. The Century was given official status in 1985 when it was described as a “sophisticated essay in Art Deco design” by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Built in the 1930s by Irwin Chanin, who also designed and constructed The Majestic on 72nd and CPW as well as several Broadway theatres, The Century spans the entire block from West 62nd to West 63rd Streets. Originally named The Century Apartments because it was built on the former site of The Century Theatre, it was renamed and converted to The Century Condominium in 1989. Today it is established as New York’s premier full service luxury prewar condominium on Central Park West—boasting three attended entrances, a magnificent lobby with inviting landscaped terrace and an attentive staff. It is also a pet friendly building.
