A higher bar—with a modern edge—in one of Lower Manhattan's most storied neighborhoods.
No matter the decade, or the cost per pound of Katz's pastrami, Manhattan's Lower East Side is always alive. The arrival of 147 Ludlow marks the appearance of a fresh and vibrant face to match the neighborhood it calls home. Here, you’ll never be more than a few blocks from a neighborhood institution with a city-wide reputation.
This building was rigorously conceptualized by Grid with design handled by DHD, standing six stories tall with eight loft-style homes inside—including a jaw-dropping duplex penthouse and a private rooftop offering unbeatable downtown panoramas.
Moving back into the city and need to make new friends? Natural light may very well be your first one, thanks to oversized windows that freely let it in and fill space from the floor to the ceiling over nine feet up. You’ll also catch light hanging out on your private terrace—each residence has one—an amenity ready-made for unwinding, entertaining, or both. Or, check in with natural light from atop a shared roof deck and secure another coveted NYC friendship, skyline views.
Lower East Side
New York City’s
Newest Boutique Developments
What’s “new” to a place like New York City, where the latest and greatest one week is a punchline the next? Where, in an instant, today’s Cronut® can just as quickly become tomorrow’s rainbow bagel? While things inside the city are constantly going in and out of style, the place itself never does.
NYC is constantly evolving and staying ahead of the curve. Even after the last year-plus (and counting) we’ve collectively endured, this remains true. Out of circumstance or necessity, things have changed, and yet, NYC is bouncing back. Newcomers, returning folk, and those who never left are now all on the hunt for new ways to experience life in this fine city.
Check out this collection of new boutique developments, fresh slates accentuating NYC’s character. Smaller-scale and simultaneously fostering privacy and community, each proves why rumors of this city’s demise were greatly (and we mean greatly) exaggerated.
Exquisite tastes and grand perspectives define the comforts
1228 Madison Avenue looks out over the Guggenheim Museum's iconic spiraling form to enjoy incredible views of Central Park. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA), this striking new tower takes serious cues from the Classical architecture of the Upper East Side, flaunting an intricate façade of limestone and heathered brick.
Meanwhile, the interiors of its 13 residences—11 full-floor, one duplex, and one triplex penthouse—have been devised by AD100 designer Kelly Behun Studio, claiming distinct but cohesive feels. As RAMSA partner Paul Whalen said it best, "The only real luxury left is individuality.”
Inside and out, it’s two great tastes that taste great together: Upper East Side living optimized for the current moment. You'll enjoy a true parkside lifestyle, residing just a block from the green oasis they probably invented that term for. 1228 Madison Avenue boasts water views over Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, along with the iconic Central Park West skyline. Lastly, this Carnegie Hill address puts you central to the cultural institutions of Museum Mile, including the Cooper Hewitt and Neue Galerie.
Where your loft fantasies come to life, paired with water views and greenery.
Outlined with the neighborhood’s creative spirit in mind, 67 Vestry embraces the freedom of loft-style living in Tribeca, with its 13 half and full-floor residences getting maximum mileage out of light and space. With designs by Gachot Studios, this c. 1896 Romanesque revival near Tribeca’s hypotenuse, once a warehouse for A&P supermarkets and subsequently host to artists from Andy Warhol to Dan Flavin, has morphed into a veritable modern marvel. Securing a spot within also means acquiring access to club-like amenities, including a 50-foot lap pool set inside a strikingly tall wood-paneled room.
What may seem like fan fiction from an extraordinarily niche real estate blog is a reality at 67 Vestry: a New York City loft on a cobblestoned street with waterside views adjacent to a sprawling green space. Unobstructed vistas over the Hudson River mean you can literally see for miles and miles, and so on. Hudson River Park awaits across West Street, a four-mile-long riverside haven spanning all the way up to 59th Street.
Community when you want it, privacy when you need it.
While Brooklyn-based architecture firm SO-IL has won recognition for work on museums and homes, 450 Warren Street—a collaboration with developer Tankhouse—marks its first venture into residential development.
Each of the 18 homes is private, but they are also stitched together by verdant courtyards and other green areas, fostering a friendly, communal atmosphere. This isn’t your typical NYC building where you see your neighbor every other month, and you’re only 60% sure their name is Phil even though you’ve lived across the hall for five years. When not socializing with fellow residents, you might be luxuriating in your personal outdoor space or thriving in the sunlight that pours in through multiple exposures.
Much like its community-centric design, 450 Warren’s physical location is at a neighborhood nexus: It's at the intersection of Gowanus and Boerum Hill, keeping you within minutes of Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, and Prospect Heights.
Five Five Zero
Flawless for you and your furry, feathery, or otherwise faithful companions.
Colloquially known as Five Five Zero—it's at 550 West 29th Street—this Chelsea condominium complex consists of 19 three- and four-bedroom homes laid out in simplex, duplex, and penthouse configurations. Behind a limestone façade, through oversized casement windows, and under soaring ceilings, these residences boast all the features you would want a new development to have.
State-of-the-art kitchens with custom cabinetry, Pietra Cardosa countertops, and appliances? Check. Spa-like baths with Italian Dolomite marble walls and floors, Lefroy Brooks faucets and fixtures, and Zuma soaking tubs? You bet. Pets welcome? Just add the meow, woof, or tweet.
Chelsea has a legitimate claim to be the heart of—at the least—Manhattan's midsection, and Five Five Zero is at the core of that heart. A block west lies the Hudson River, while the High Line wanders its bona fide scenic route towards the Meatpacking District one block to the northeast.
10 Quincy Street
Melding styles and eras into something all its own—in true Brooklyn fashion.
Originally constructed as a warehouse for Frederick Loeser & Company, the venerable Downtown Brooklyn department store that famously produced the official Ellis Island china, this c. 1899 Francis Kimball-designed edifice has been completely reimagined for the 21st century New Yorker.
One, two, and three-bed residences make up 10 Quincy’s 46 homes. Arched windows and ceilings of at least 11 feet nod to Brooklyn’s industrial past, while modern finishes fold in its chic present and future. Some homes come equipped with their own glorious outdoor spaces, but for those that don’t, 10 Quincy more than compensates with a panoramic roof deck and a center courtyard replete with a hanging garden.
Any interior transformations will not affect the building’s singular exterior. A melding of American Romanesque Revival and Victorian Gothic—the latter a hallmark style of other Kimball work—its brown and orange bricks form stripes and arches, making 10 Quincy positively striking.
