The eminently elegant 200 East 79th Street, which went on the market at the beginning of October after a mysterious anti-campaign that kept mum on renderings and pricing details, already has 22 out of 39 units with signed contracts; another 5 units at the Cetra/Ruddy-designed project by Skyline Developers are in contract, according to the weekly Olshan Luxury Market Report.
The prewar building offers three-, four- and five-bedroom apartments measuring 1,900 to 5,100 square feet, with some studios for owners to house guests or staff. The site currently lists eight available units, starting at $3.57 million for a three-bedroom to $13.5 million for a five-bedroom. All units have large windows, paneled solid oak floors, roughly nine-foot-tall ceilings and frisson-inducing touches like herringbone marble floors in the bathroom.
Donna Olshan of Olshan Realty attributed 200 East 79th’s success to its “economically attractive price” for large units on the Upper East Side, starting at $1,800 a square foot. The amenity package includes a fitness center, lounge, terrace with a pergola and the opportunity to reserve a private studio for personal training, yoga and pilates workouts.
Down the road, The Brodsky Organization’s 135 East 79th Street has 5 of 30 units under contract. The 19-story building, which averages $1,100 square foot more per unit than 200 East 79th, flaunts sleek interior finishes (solid white oak floors, custom millwork closets, hand-painted kitchens, Sub Zero wine refrigerators), ceiling heights at 9 feet 6 inches and three elevators that give each apartment its own private elevator landing. No more awkward conversing while waiting for the lift to come! Every unit is a half-floor (with some duplexes), and pricing ranges from $7.275 million for a 2,753-square-foot three-bedroom to $23 million for a 5,188-square-foot five-bedroom.
