Three of a Kind: Modern Midtown

12 September, 2012 posted by: CORE

Midtown has traditionally been known as a business and tourism hub, a place where you were more likely to pass through than live. But in recent years new luxury development has capitalized on the neighborhood’s convenient location and attracted a wave of residents. Here’s a look at some of what’s currently available.


Where: 100 West 58th Street, #9G
Size: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
Asking: $1,295,000
Listed by: Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon

The area just south of Central Park has seen a lot of change in the past few years with the arrival of new skyscrapers, but one thing it is not known for is apartment buildings with true architectural pedigree. The Windsor Park, a newly converted condominium originally designed in 1929 by the legendary Rosario Candela, with renovations by Gwathmey Siegel and Associates, is the exception. Steps from Central Park, Carnegie Hall and the “Plaza District” and its fantastic retail options, this two bedroom apartment is classic while still being contemporary.

Labor Day weekend is just around the corner and summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean we’re tired of great private outdoor spaces quite yet. Here are three great properties on the market that can give summer the sendoff it deserves.

On the inside this historic Greenwich Village brownstone is totally restored and renovated for contemporary living, but the outdoor spaces stand out as well. There are two private terraces, but we really want to focus on the backyard, which is a charming space in one of Manhattan’s best neighborhoods that can handle the busiest holiday celebration. And if you need a moment alone, you can sneak off to that private terrace off the master bedroom.

Our Midtown sojourn continues with this terrace for the penthouse at 301 East 52nd Street, stretching 43′ and providing some pretty magnificent views of the East Side. This might not be the best Friday for showing off outdoor spaces, but summer is definitely the season to snag this Beekman Place apartment and invite over friends and family for the best get together anyone can pull off. And the timing is perfect: This customized 5-bedroom, loft-like duplex is available for rent for $25,000 per month.

We’ve fallen for the contemporary renovation of this pied-a-terre-friendly Midtown co-op apartment, which features clean and sleek lines throughout. And the bones are good as well, with big windows letting in lots of light, and views in all four directions. One of Manhattan’s most well-known stretches, 57th Street puts you a short walk from Central Park and the desired retail of Fifth Avenue and the Plaza District. Already that’s a lot of pluses, but we’ve saved the best for last: The 500-square-foot private terrace that’s bigger than many New York City apartments. Have a peek below.

Three of a Kind: Upstairs, Downstairs

16 May, 2012 posted by: CORE

There’s nothing like a multi-level apartment to make you feel like you’ve escaped the tight confines of the city. Owners love being able to split up common areas and bedrooms, or just the ability to create a large master suite with total privacy. Here are our favorite duplexes (and one that’s larger) on the market right now.


Where: 211 East 51st Street, PHB
Size: 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms
Asking: $5,750,000

This Midtown East penthouse has a lot going for it besides its central location and vast interior space. Both levels are surrounded by over 1,600 square feet of private terrace space, nearly wrapping around both levels. The inside is in mint condition, and we love the generous proportions of all the rooms. And, of course, you can’t forget the ceiling height, which make the spaces apper even more grand than.
