200 East 83rd, New York
The residences of 200 East 83rd officially hit the market in October, with 30% of the building’s 86 condominiums already spoken for ahead of the formal sales launch. The new 35-story Upper East Side condominium building, developed by Naftali Group and Rockefeller Group, first made a splash for setting a Third Avenue sales record with a $27 million penthouse deal in November. The tower is designed by the esteemed firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects and spotlights details such as intricate ironwork and expansive setback terraces. Another endearing feature: Wildflowers that were native to the area are etched in the tower’s façade of Indiana limestone flanking the front door. Sculpted railings also offer a nod to nature—this time, suggesting the street’s verdant treescape.
Inside, floor plans include half-floor and full-floor residences as well as three dramatic penthouse residences at the building’s crown, all with their own private foyer, modern finishes, oak cabinetry, custom crown molding, and cutting-edge technology. Residences start at $2.05 million, and some are outfitted with private outdoor space, such as the penthouses, which havelarge terraces as well as custom-designed stone parapets with metal and glass railings.
There’s no shortage of amenities in the building, with offerings running the gamut from a fitness center with a 70-foot pool and yoga studio to a private cinema and a vaulted porte-cochère with automated parking opening onto a private courtyard. Should residents need to destress after closing on their new homes, there’s also a spa with a steam room, sauna, and treatment room.
The Bellemont, New York
A few weeks after the residences of The Bellemont hit the market in October, the building’s top two penthouses sold together for $66.5 million, setting a new record on the Upper East Side above 59th Street. The Robert A.M. Stern Architects designed and Naftali Group-developed boutique building, with its impressive limestone and iron-work façade, offers a collection of 12 homes with half-floor, full-floor, duplex, and penthouse layouts.
Rome-based interior designer Achille Salvagni worked wonders in creating timeless, luxurious homes, his work harmonized by the grand proportions of the apartments, the soaring ceilings, and sweeping views of Central Park. Noteworthy specs from Salvagni—who is known for his work on super luxury yachts and high-end private residential projects—include largescale polished doors, high moldings, and chefs’ kitchens. Amenities include a rooftop lounge overlooking the park, fitness space, children’s play room, regulation squash court, and screening room.
