Why we recommend the Sheffield to our buyers
The building has an excellent location due to the proximity of Central Park (2 blocks north), Time Warner Center and Lincoln Center. It also has easy access to a number of subway lines (1, 9, A, C, D and B). Also, the building location offers an easy way out of the city by West Side Highway.
Besides the excellent location at 322 West 57th Street, buyers like the community feeling that the building offers. The friendly staff is composed of almost 25 employees including 6 full time doormans that makes living at The Sheffield a happy experience. Amenities like the private driveway makes that trip upstate to Woodbury Commons or Stew Leonard’s feel a little less stressful when unloading your purchases back at home.
Also, in terms of real estate appreciation, the building held up value quite well compared to other condo buildings in the city and others Columbus Circle apartments for sale. With the development of Billionaire’s row along 57th Street bringing a higher end retail component to the neighborhood, we know that prices at Sheffield will continue their rise.

Most of the apartments above 29th floor with a North orientation offer great park views, and together with the West views that offers ample river views, these type of apartments can be quite stunning. Sheffield prices are two thirds or half the price compared to other condos in the immediate area, including Time Warner Center Condominium and Park Imperial.
