Combining energy efficiency, elegantly-appointed interiors and thoughtful amenities, Convivium is a brand new collection of luxury rental apartments on York Avenue. The 22-story high-rise was designed by Arquitectonica, an award-winning international architecture firm, and constructed to meet Passive House standards.

Developed by Carrera RS, Convivium features 140 units in a variety of floorplans to suit the needs of all residents. Choose from studio, alcove studio, junior one-bedroom and traditional one-bedroom apartments. Those in need of additional space will appreciate the two- and three-bedroom configurations, while remote workers will benefit from the two-bedroom plus home office designs.

The luxe apartment interiors are characterized by oversized, noise-abated windows, sweeping views of the uptown skyline and the East River, and private balconies (as per plan). The sleek and sophisticated kitchens are appointed with solid-core Italian cabinetry, Dekton countertops, Fisher Paykel stainless steel induction ranges, Bosch dishwashers, microwaves and refrigerators, and timeless Dornbracht fixtures.

Designed with relaxation in mind, the spa-like bathrooms feature custom sinks from Porcelanosa, deep soaker tub and shower combinations, polished chrome Dornbracht fixtures, one-piece Duravit toilets and contemporary vanities that provide plenty of storage. Plus, all homes are equipped with in-suite washers and dryers to make laundry day a breeze.

A select number of premium duplex homes facing York Avenue are also available, complete with soaring ceilings and oversized windows that allow natural light to flood the interiors. Prospective tenants of Convivium are invited to explore the different layouts by taking a virtual tour or scheduling an in-person visit of the doormanned building. 

Convivium boasts indoor and outdoor amenities for residents of all ages and their pets. Work up a sweat in the 24-hour fitness center or practice morning meditation in the landscaped garden terrace. The residents’ lounge is ideal for entertaining, equipped with an event kitchen and stylish furnishings. Families with young children can arrange playdates in the kids’ playroom, while pet parents will adore the convenience of the on-site dog run.

Additional amenities include co-working spaces, a roof deck with outdoor seating and grilling stations, resident garden plots, a media and entertainment center, pinball and video arcade, and a pet spa. Resident storage bins, bicycle storage, a laundry room and package room are available as well.

The entrance to Carl Schurz Park is only steps away, and the Second Avenue Subway is less than two blocks west on 86th Street.
