Who said luxurious Spa City living needed to be smack dab in the middle of traffic-packed Downtown? That’s the idea behind The West, a new four-story condominium complex designed by Olsen Associates, Architects at 116 West Avenue in Saratoga Springs. At less than a mile from Downtown Saratoga, this state-of-the-art condominium facility will boast all the same high-end amenities as condos along Broadway, but at almost half the price and with none of the noise or hassle of living downtown during the bustling summer months.
“In many ways, this building is groundbreaking for Saratoga—it’s refreshingly innovative,” says Scott Varley, associate broker with Keller Williams Capital District and president of the Scott Varley Team. “Our building has all the same amenities as any of the ones in the Broadway quarter, but the innovation lies in that we’re offering a more affordable living space.”
Located just two blocks from Saratoga Springs High School and the Regional YMCA, The West offers 34 customizable units, including 2-bedroom condos, ranging from $485,000 to $600,000 per unit. That price tag includes hardwood floors and quartz kitchen and bathroom countertops, plus private, oversized balconies and even some smart condos where the lighting and air conditioning can be controlled via smartphone app. As if that weren’t a sweet enough deal, residency at The West also includes access to a fitness room, private lounge and rooftop pool. “The rooftop pool is a feature that doesn’t exist presently anywhere else between New York City and Montréal,” says Varley. “It’s only here!”
The West’s ground floor features more than 4000 square feet of contemporary commercial/retail space that’s currently for sale. Future tenants will hardly have to leave their homes to find upscale food, beverage and shopping options. And residents won’t have to worry about an overcrowded parking lot either, as each condo includes a private parking spot (plus 70 additional spots for public parking).
The new condominium complex’s units will be move-in ready by early summer. Varley says that new condo owners will also be able to make all the interior selections, including but not limited to decisions on flooring, lighting, room colors and kitchen appliances. “The West is the solution for all those people out there,” Varley says, “who want that downtown, condo lifestyle, but can’t afford it.” Units are currently available to see by appointment only.
