Same Space, Different Place

Location, location—and proportion.


Apt. 6H (left); Apt. 6G (right)   

On paper, you can see why these two apartments in the Ismael Leyva–designed Oro Condominiums are separated in price by 30 grand, or nearly 7 percent. One is about 50 square feet larger than the other, and developers figure prices by area. But in real life, does this difference signify one bit? After all, a look at the two floor plans does not suggest that one is any larger than the other. Sales manager Samantha Behringer offers that the bigger living room (two feet wider!) is “easier to work with,” being more square than elongated. The sleeping alcove is a few inches bigger, too, as is the galley-kitchen-cum-hallway. “If you cook and entertain a lot, it makes a big difference,” she says.
