Building: 212 East 47th Street in Turtle Bay
This small Midtown neighborhood, Turtle Bay, is an exclusive one with the Chrysler Building and United Nations Headquarters within its boundaries. Extell Development converted the former rental building, known as L’Ecole, into condos in 2007. Well known in Manhattan for their upscale developments such as The Rushmore, Lucida and others, 212 East 47th Street mirrors their proclivity toward fine finishings, quality craftsmanship and plentiful amenities.
The 35-story building has 261 one, two and three-bedroom luxury apartment homes. Named for the distinction of having the most prized New York area code, “212,” its location, beautiful interiors and great amenities certainly measure up to its name. The pricing for these units are attractive for such an illustrious address.
There are three different design packages that offer a choice of flooring, cabinetry walls and finishings. All are of the finest quality such as natural wood with white granite countertops and marble brick mosaic backsplash in kitchens with baths matching, and Gris DeSienna limestone. French white oak is another choice with kitchen countertops in crystallized white glass and rosewood cabinets and baths with Grigio Carnio stone with mahogany and marble finishings. The third alternative is flooring in Berti wood Jatoba with crystallized white glass countertops and marble backsplashes. Baths have Tabu wood vanities and Mayorca limestone counters.
One of the best amenities of this luxury building is its very large and gorgeously landscaped rooftop terrace. It’s the perfect “escape” for relaxing, rejuvenating and/or enjoying after-hours get-togethers with breathtaking, panoramic cityscape views — there’s 3,000 square feet to view some of Manhattan’s most recognizable icons; the Chrysler Building, Bank of America Tower and the East River.
Several units have balconies (and terraces as large as 119 square feet), some offering triple river views and his/her custom-built closets in the master bedrooms. There are generous-sized common areas (but very reasonable common charges) such as resident lounge, fitness center, rooftop garden and onsite parking.
Steps away from Grand Central Station, a few blocks away from the Hudson River and walking distance to legendary Midtown shops and dining, make 212 East 47th Street the “ultimate Manhattan address.”
