Like a flower abundant with blooms, Dahlia has a sophistication and energy all its own.
Designed by award-winning firm CetraRuddy Architecture, Dahlia embodies the best of the Upper West Side and is an exciting addition to the neighborhood. It consists of 38 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes that are as forward-thinking and elegant as a dahlia itself. Filled with warmth and a refreshingly original design, Dahlia is a place where dreams blossom.
Dahlia is a new and modern statement for the Upper West Side, yet fits into the fabric of the area’s classic pre-war legacy.
Taking advantage of everything a new building can offer, Dahlia incorporates the learnings of the area’s rich architectural history to create a sophisticated and youthful presence. Thoughtful amenities, private on-site parking and smart home capabilities ensure that residents have everything they need, every hour of the day. The result is a differentiated building in the heart of a coveted neighborhood.
Behind strips of green wall is Dahlia’s covered private parking.
This rare amenity delivers direct access from the street to the home and allows residents to seamlessly return home in all weather conditions. The subtle design and elegant landscaping references the building’s elevated landscaped terrace as well as the Upper West Side’s iconic greenspaces. The parking area offers a charging station for electric vehicles.
Generously set back from the sidewalk, Dahlia has a striking presence on 95th Street.
The façade introduces a new kind of exterior wall made from grandly scaled, imported European panels, allowing for greater articulation of angles inside the building. The cascade of floor-to-ceiling glass in a ziggurat pattern affords sparkling natural light in the homes and establishes a human scale at the street level.
The architecture of Dahlia is based upon a respect for the Upper West Side context, while reaching forward with an articulated modernism that is unlike anything in the neighborhood.—John Cetra, FAIA
