The Adeline, L+M Development Partners’ monumental condo project in Harlem, is just about finished.
The 12-story, 83-unit building will be completed by the end of the month and is currently 86 percent sold after hitting the market in January. Perkins Eastman designed the rapturously gray brick facade of the development, which sits at 23 West 116th Street, across from the Kalahari condominiums, another L+M project.
The residences at The Adeline range from one-bedrooms to four-bedrooms, many with private terraces; pricing for available units starts at $1.15 million for a 1,072-square-foot two-bedroom. Halstead Property Development Marketing is leading sales at the building.
Interiors feature eight-foot casement windows, wide-plank oak floors, copious walk-in closets, tiled laundry closets with Bosch washer/dryer and kitchens with marbled Caesarstone countertops, white custom matte lacquer cabinetry and Energy Star stainless steel appliances. Master baths are fitted with hand-laid herringbone porcelain tile and glass-enclosed walk-in showers with rain showerheads. All apartments have high-efficiency heating and cooling systems.
“We wanted to update the pre-war style with modernized details, to have the comfort you get from an old place, but with a new feel,” Tell Metzger, Development Director at L+M, told us on a tour of the building. “When you walk in, you should feel that someone thought about everything.”
For instance, the oak wood flooring is oiled, not shellacked, for a softer appearance. The kitchen countertops were originally slated to be a gray Caesarstone, but the heaviness of the color threw off the balance of the interiors, which were crafted to contrast with the building’s starkly syncopated, almost masculine facade.
Halstead’s Peter Denby, who is handling sales at The Adeline, said that buyers have been drawn to the apartments’ clean lines and finishes. “They’re warm and welcoming; everyone loves the floors, the wide-plank oak, the natural feel.”
Here’s the latest model unit, 10F, which was furnished last month. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment measures 1,324 square feet:
Next up, model unit 10C, a 1,120-square-foot two-bedroom. There are three model units total; Gracious Home curated the interiors at Unit 9A.
Unit 11D is a 1,847-square-foot four-bedroom, two-bathroom with a 603-square-foot terrace:
Finally, 12F is a 1,387-square-foot three-bedroom with one of the building’s three private rooftop terraces. Even the stairs seem reassuringly solid:
Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, 2,300-square-foot landscaped roof deck, a 5,800-square-foot landscaped second-floor courtyard, children’s playroom, resident gym, lounge and package room with cold storage. Bike storage, private storage and parking are also available at an additional cost. A 25-year, 421a tax abatement is anticipated for the property.
