landmark Octagon Tower has been meticulously restored,
and is now the centerpiece of a 500-unit residential
development on Roosevelt Island. The eco-friendly building,
developed and designed by Becker + Becker Associates,
includes a re-invention of the famous 7-story spiral
staircase, a David Rockwell-designed lobby, gallery
and clubroom, and two 14-story luxury rental wings.
Units range from studios to 1- 2- and 3BRs, some with
home offices; most with washer/dryers. Floor-to-ceiling
windows feature river and skyline views. Open kitchens
have granite countertops and Whirlpool Energy Star appliances.
Subway-tiled master baths come with pedestal sinks and
ceramic tile floors. Amenity highlights: heated waterfront
pool, lighted tennis courts, screening and game rooms,
library, fitness center, on-site daycare facility, riverfront
bike/walking paths along the river, and underground
parking. Free satellite TV, unlimited local phone service
and Internet/WiFi package for all tenants. Just one
stop on the F train to Lexington and 63rd, and planned
soon, a water taxi serving 34th Street and Wall Street.
From $1,850 monthly. OPEN.
