205 West End a Cooperative residence since 1987


Built in 1961, 205 West End was part of a vast urban renewal program centered around the new Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The building sits at the northern edge of Lincoln Towers. While an independent Cooperative, 205 WEA residents retain access to and shared ownership of the beautiful gardens and playgrounds in the complex, the largest of which can be accessed directly from the building.

205 West End Owners Corporation, whose shares are 90% resident-owned, is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of seven shareholders and one sponsor representative.
