Do you think too many of the new buildings coming up nowadays look like glassy, reflective eyesores? Then you’ll be happy to set your eyes on this brand-new tower located at 234 East 23rd Street developed by the Naftali Group. With floor-to-ceiling casement windows, the facade is plenty modern, but the building is most striking because of its red brick nod to the Gramercy neighborhood it calls home. The units in the building just were just listed today, and you can get your first peek of the interiors right here.
The interiors of the 20-foot tower are just as attention-grabbing. One of the most unique features is the airy, double-height lobby designed by Rottet Studio, which is known for its work inside hotels like the Surrey and Loews Regency. Individual apartments are incredibly well-lit, with the sun reflecting off the solid white oak floors to open up the rooms even more.
All of the kitchens are modern and functional, equipped with state-of-the-art appliances from Bertazzoni, Bosch and Subzero, along with lots of storage and counter space. It’s a kitchen that’s pretty to look at, but also meant to be used on a regular basis.
Like the rest of the space, the spa-like bathrooms are clean and elegant, punctuated by custom-made vanities, glass doors and marble-lined floors and walls.
Another big draw is the view, of course — the higher up you go, the more magnificent the panoramic views become. The penthouse suite comes complete with a rooftop deck that already has a grill and outdoor kitchen installed.
Want to get your hands on one of the condos? Listings for the spacious 57 apartments just hit the market, so act fast. Prices start at $885,000 for a one-bedroom and goes up to a cool $6 million for the four-bedroom penthouse.
