If, like many New Yorkers, you would rather stay in your less-than-perfect apartment than deal with the extreme headaches of moving, then The Collection at Gotham West may inspire you to get packing.

Located on the top floors of Gotham West's Midtown West tower, the select group of super-deluxe two- and three-bedroom apartments start at $6,945 per month and offer expansive views, luxe finishings and something not often available to the average renter: a range of services that aim to make your transition to a new home as gentle as possible.

The idea for The Collection at Gotham West is similar to building your dream car: Start with a swish base model, then choose all the options—metallic paint, leather seats, moon roof, premium sound system—that will transform it into a hot rod that’s totally you. In this case, the prototype is one of Gotham West’s two- or three-bedroom apartments, both of which come with wide plank oak floors, open designer kitchen’s with stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, Bosch washer/dryers and walk-in closets.

From there, you can choose from a list of custom options to transform your apartment into a home tailored to you alone. Don't want white walls? Swap them for a more pleasing shade of paint (Guilford Green? Oxford Grey?, Blue Hydrangea?) from Benjamin Moore’s Color Trends 2015. Gotham West will hire and manage the painters  (yes you read that correctly) so the job is done before you move in, and paint the walls back to white again when you move out.


Need help figuring out how to arrange your furniture in your new place? Gotham West will hook you up with an interior designer for a one-hour consultation. Need better closets to house your collection of Chloe, Carven and Christian Louboutin, the spare stroller and your polar vortex boot camp? If you’re renting in The Collection at Gotham West, you get a credit from California Closets that allows you to customize your master bedroom closet—and they’ll handle the installation logistics.

What’s more, Gotham West understands that moving is stressful and living out of boxes chaotic, so their “Collection” services focus on the specific needs of new tenants, like the complimentary services of a personal assistant to oversee your move, free on-site storage to help you minimize your clutter and a tech credit from House Systems for getting all your technology, from your internet to your Apple TV, up and running without you even having to locate a user manual.

When all the unpacking’s done, you can familiarize yourself with Gotham West’s state-of-the-art health club (it’s got a cycling/yoga studio!) with two complimentary personal training sessions, test drive a new way to get to work and beyond with complimentary Via credits (the new app-enabled, ride-sharing service) and come home to a clean apartment thanks to two complimentary housekeeping visits courtesy of Urban Maid Green. If you find yourself hopelessly attached to any of the start-up services, you can arrange for them to continue through Gotham West's concierge, Abigail Michaels.

It’s all about making moving as painless as possible, which, in New York City, may just be a good enough reason to make a move in the first place.

The Collection at Gotham West is a selection of high-end two and three bedroom apartments with curated amenities and experiences tailored to each resident that making moving into and living at Gotham West, as simple as can be.
