New York, NY
230,000 SF • SOLOW BUILDING COMPANY, DEVELOPERS
This high-rise residential complex located on East 61st Street and York Avenue stands as a powerful addition to its neighborhood; its elegantly tailored facades of the 40-story building make a powerful statement on the New York City skyline. The building contains 266 apartment units as well as a fitness club, laundry facilities, and a below-grade valet parking garage. The sheer-tinted glass cladding expresses the tower as a seamless prismatic form, but also reveals hints of its interior spaces.
Designed to be comprised of two towers, construction of the complex’s first tower was completed in 2004. A similar tower, also designed Davis Brody Bond for the Solow Company, was subsequently completed directly to the south. The siting and location of the two buildings allows for unobstructed views of Manhattan, the East River and Queens.
