The Real Deal New York

Dancer Jacques d’Amboise buys condo at Harlem’s PS90, home to his dance group

Jacques d’Amboise and PS90 at 220 West 148th Street

Jacques d’Amboise, former ballet star and founder of a non-profit dance education group for children, paid $650,000 for a 1,251-square-foot condominium unit at PS90, the converted public school building in Harlem.

D’Amboise, once a principal dancer for the New York City Ballet, signed a contract in December and closed on the purchase of the second-floor condo at 220 West 148th Street on Jan. 28, city records published today show.

The six-story building, located between Adam Clayton Powell and Frederick Douglass boulevards, was converted by L + M Development Partners into 72 condominium units and four community facility units.

One advantage of the dancer’s new apartment is he will not have a long commute. NDI Center, an affiliate of his group, National Dance Institute, paid $5.9 million in November for the 18,000-square-foot community space in the basement and the first floor of the 1905 building, which it is going to occupy as its first permanent home. The non-profit, founded in 1975, is currently renting space in Soho.

D’Amboise was not immediately available for comment.
