THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
 
 

Designed by Gal Nauer and Costas Kondylis, The Link at 52nd Street just west of Eighth Avenue offers a well-appointed world of luxury living in one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods. Given that the 44-story glass tower is located right at the edge of the Clinton Preservation District (which has limited building heights), you’ll get to enjoy out-of-this-world views of Manhattan from all floor-to-ceiling windows. These homes are exceptionally spacious, and brimming with extras, such as Poggenpohl kitchens with bluestone countertops and appliances from Sub-Zero and Bosch. Baths are done in water-glass tiling. Various types of units are available: a lowrise section of The Link contains duplex townhouses accessible from the street, or you can choose from studios, 1 and 2BR apartments, or 3BR penthouses - many with outdoor spaces. A state-of-the-art fitness center and landscaped 2,500sf interior garden are among the top-of-the-line amenities. Priced from $650,000 to $2.9 million.

BY THE LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON

For those seeking exclusivity, the 24-story Sutton 57 serves up 38 posh residences at 57th off Second Avenue. With no more than three homes per floor - and full-floor units above the ninth - these pads are nothing short of dazzling. Inside any of the 1, 2 or 3BRs (including one duplex penthouse), it’s obvious that no detail has been overlooked. You’ll find luscious cabreuva hardwood floors throughout. Gourmet kitchens are exquisitely designed - with Sub-Zero refrigerators cleverly hidden behind custom panels to match the glass-fronted cabinetry, black honed granite counters, and appliances from Dacor, Dornbracht, Miele and Franke. Master baths are decked out in floor-to-ceiling Calacatta Gold stone tiles with matching mosaic inlay, plus roomy soaking tubs and glass-enclosed showers. There’s round-the-clock concierge service and a fitness center. Extra credit for the rooftop moon garden - it’s landscaped with flowers that bloom after sundown to heighten your unwinding pleasure. From $1.395 million.

      LIVING THE HIGH LIFE

Developed by Sleepy Hudson, LLP, the glass-curtain High Line 519 features
11 loft-like floor-through homes (some with balconies), a garden terrace duplex, and two fabulous penthouses with wood-burning fireplaces and private terraces. This sleek building on West 23rd between 10th and 11th affords unobstructed vistas encompassing the Hudson River, the Empire State Building and, of course, the High Line (the famed railroad viaduct which is undergoing transformation to an ultra-cool elevated park). Apartment interiors have wide-plank dark wenge wood flooring, honed concrete ceilings and beams (with ceiling heights over 10ft). Varenna kitchens have quartzite counters, Miele appliances, and Sub-Zero refrigerators and wine coolers. The pièce de résistance of these homes is the glass-tiled master baths featuring custom L-shaped macassar ebony storage benches, teakwood floors striated with rubber (for non-slippage), slatted teak floors in glass showers, and soaking tubs with million-dollar High Line views while bathing. Priced from $1.75 million.

“There’s unprecedented demand in the Manhattan market for new-construction homes. New buildings are generating the same kind of excitement as new fashion,” says Aby Rosen, president of RFR Holding. “As with fashion, classic architecture may be deemed tasteful and respectable, but it’s hardly exciting next to today’s building designs, which are cutting-edge and made expressly for 21st century lifestyles.”
