3 'Townhouses in The Sky' You've Got to Check Out




The townhouse is an iconic symbol of NYC real estate. However, there has been a new resurgence of the townhouse with a luxurious, sky-high version. These new 'townhouses in the sky' feature some of the most luxurious amenities and features, such as increased privacy, special architectural details, immense great rooms--not to mention soaring views of the city. Read on to check out three luxe listings that recently caught our eye.

685 First Avenue

At 43-story condominium 685 First Avenue, developer Sheldon Solow integrated a limited collection of gracious duplex residences on some of the building's highest floors. Many of these sought-after residences feature expansive great rooms with double-height ceilings, private balconies and unprecedented views of the East River and New York City skyline. Internal private elevators ensure the ultimate degree of privacy and ease of living, while access to the building’s selection of amenities provides the ultimate comfort and convenience.

Luxe Buildings

Tucked into the upper floors at Billionaire’s row icon One57 are two additional examples. Extell Development Company specifically planned an exquisite pair of two duplex units named the Spring Garden and Winter Garden residences, the building’s only homes with private outdoor space. The Spring Garden unit, which is being marketed by celebrity broker Ryan Serhant, boasts a 671-foot solarium and terrace overlooking iconic Central Park as well as a 43-foot-long great room. The home was impeccably outfitted by Katherine Newman Design, famous for crafting the interiors of some of the Upper East Side’s most luxurious townhomes.

Townhouse in the sky

At 180 East 88th Street, a 50-story condominium on the Upper East Side designed and developed by DDG. The building's remaining duplex residence echoes the gracious townhomes the neighborhood is known for with its pre-war inspired aesthetic, formal elliptical entry gallery, custom wainscoting and cove ceilings. Soaring ceilings of more than 28 feet conjure feelings of immense grandeur, while its location on the 38th floor provides cinematic views of the Midtown Skyline, Central Park and even the George Washington Bridge.
