Extell Development unveils Skyscape Collection

September 19, 2017 - Design / Build

Manhattan, NY Extell Development Co. has unveiled the Skyscape Collection at One Manhattan Sq. Located on the Lower East Side, One Manhattan Sq. will feature 100,000 s/f of indoor and outdoor amenities. Located atop the highest floors of the 800-ft. modern glass tower, the Skyscape Collection has bird’s eye views of the New York City skyline, the New York Harbor, East and Hudson Rivers, Brooklyn and beyond.

“A defining element of the Skyscape Collection is the stunning backdrop of the complete New York City skyline resulting from east, north and west exposures – a remarkable feat given the architectural design of One Manhattan Sq.,” said Raizy Haas, senior VP of development for Extell. “With occupancy just over one year away, we’re confident this limited collection of special homes will receive the same strong interest we’ve experienced since launching sales.”

Comprised mainly of three-bedroom residences, the collection features 25 condo homes in the sky, including the building’s five penthouses. Each light-flooded residence in the Skyscape Collection features living and dining areas, master bedroom suites with dressing rooms, five-fixture master bathrooms with floor heating and gourmet kitchens with breakfast bars; all set against panoramic views.

Two of the five penthouses are duplex homes. These residences have five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a powder room and entertaining terraces. Each features an entry foyer, master bathroom with steam shower and a double-height grand salon with breathtaking unobstructed views of Midtown Manhattan, the Financial District, the Rivers and the Bridges.

With exterior design by architectural firm Adamson Associates Architects complemented by custom Meyer Davis Studio interiors, all of the 815 residences at One Manhattan Sq. are positioned to maximize panoramic skyline views. A variety of one to three bedroom residences are available featuring open layouts, 5” wide-stained, oak flooring, imported stone and custom finishes.

“The Skyscape Collection presents an exceptional opportunity to own a trophy home in the first modern tower along the Esplanade on the Lower East Side,” said Anna Zarro, senior VP, director of residential sales & leasing. 

“Unprecedented views coupled with low carrying costs and a tax abatement make One Manhattan Square a prime opportunity, and the incredible vertical village of amenities provide an unheard of caliber of living Downtown.” 

One Manhattan Sq. joins a part of Downtown Manhattan along the East River Esplanade. Rife with experiential public infrastructure and development, the Lower East Side is transforming with new attractions sprouting up daily. From a major event and entertainment venue at Pier 36 to the landscaped open space and an innovative eco-habitat restoration project called the EcoPark slated for Pier 35, incredible culture will be steps away from One Manhattan Square year-round. Attractions such as the mega development Essex Crossing and the Lowline, as well as a new ferry stop at Grand Street, add to the booming atmosphere of the Lower East Side with an abundance of trendy restaurants, bars and nightlife.

Residents of One Manhattan Square will enjoy a short commute to the Financial District and Dumbo Heights, a brand new creative and tech-based office hub directly across the Manhattan Bridge. Prestigious schools nearby include Parsons, New York University and Cooper Union as well an array of top performing elementary and charter schools.

Residents of this vertical village will have access to over 100,000 s/f of indoor and outdoor amenities. West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architects designed an oasis of over an acre of private gardens including intimate garden rooms, a tea pavilion, numerous social courtyards and lounges, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, fire pits, an adult treehouse, birch garden, ping pong tables, putting green and observatory.

Inside the tower a multi-level fitness center features indoor swimming pools, a bowling alley, a full-size basketball court, golf simulator, squash court and yoga studio. Health and wellness amenities include a spa centered around a sunken tranquility garden, an infrared sauna, a hamam with a cold plunge pool and private treatment rooms.  

Additional amenities at One Manhattan Square that appeal to all audiences include a state-of-the-art cinema and performance space, a children’s playroom, teen arcade, culinary lounge, wine room, cigar room, cellar bar and demonstration kitchen.
