Located at 252 South Street, along the edge of New York Harbour, One Manhattan Square will be a dramatic addition to the Lower East Side when construction is completed in 2018. The 80-storey tower is being developed by Extell Development Company and designed by Toronto-based architecture firm Adamson Associates Architects with interiors by Meyer Davis Studio Inc.


Known for their technical expertise and design excellence on projects like The Shard at London Bridge where they served as executive architects, Adamson Associates designed the 800-foot tower to reflect a delicate mix of natural elements and modern aesthetics. Architectural details like the sleek glass curtain facade reflect the river below, while the muntz metal used on the podium, entrance and parts of the tower brings a warm, earthy tone to the neighbourhood.


Within the development, residents will have over 45,000 square feet of landscaped areas to explore. Designed by Rotterdam-based landscape architectural firm West 8, these outdoor features consist of lush gardens, a treehouse, fire pits, a tea pavilion and social courtyards.


With over 100,000 square feet of onsite amenities, there’s no shortage of things to do just steps from your doorstep. These amenities include a basketball court, two-lane bowling alley, fitness centre, swimming pool, cold plunge pool, hot tub and sauna — just to name a few.


When it comes to entertaining, One Manhattan Square also offers a long list of recreational facilities from a cellar bar, lounge and culinary kitchen to a theatre, golf simulator, and star gazing observatory. And, you can be sure you and your guests are treated with the highest level of service with a 24 hour doorman, concierge and dry cleaning valet.


Priced from $1.16 million the suites at One Manhattan Square range in size from 694 square feet to 1,667 square feet and offer spacious one- to three-bedroom floorplans. The impeccably crafted interiors were designed by the renowned team at Meyer Davis Studio, a firm known for creating unique, inspirational and impactful living spaces through bold design and attention to detail. The New York-based studio specializes in residential, hospitality, retail and workplace environments and boasts an impressive client portfolio that includes Oscar de la Renta and John Varvatos.


Aiming to impress the discerning condo buyer, the suites at One Manhattan offer panoramic views and light-filled spaces. Standard features and designer finishes include five inch stained oak floors, imported stone, custom finishes and open concept layouts.


In the kitchen, homebuyers can choose between two distinct finish packages depending on their tastes and needs. The “Dawn/Light Scheme” sports light stained custom millwork paired with white glass cabinetry, white quartz countertops, stainless steel mosaic backsplash, and a Blanco Quatrus stainless steel sink. For a slightly edgier look, the “Dusk/Dark Scheme” comes with dark stained custom millwork with white glass cabinetry, polished covelano stone bar top and a white quartz countertop for contrast.

Whether they choose the light or dark colour schemes, homeowners will benefit from a full Miele appliance package consisting of an integrated refrigerator, gas cooktop, built-in hood, integrated dishwasher and a Pureline convection and speed oven. Plus select residences are equipped with a Miele built-in whole-bean coffee system and Subzero integrated wine fridge.


The designer’s eye for elegance is echoed in the bathrooms where spa-inspired spaces are draped in high end designer finishes. Careful attention to detail can be seen in the Tay Koto wood cabinets, Dornbracht faucets and Bianco Dolomiti marble floor tile, while some residents also feature water closets and steam showers.
