Perch Harlem is Upper Manhattan’s newest and most innovative rental building located at 542 West 153rd Street in the historic Hamilton Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. With 34 new eco-friendly residences, Perch Harlem is the first Passive House rental opportunity in Manhattan. Built to Passive House environmental standards, Perch Harlem was designed to provide a better apartment experience for tenants by providing centralized heating and cooling, ERVs that circulate fresh air within each residence, and proper insulation which eliminates unnecessary noise from the street (or your neighbors) and helps to reduce energy costs by up to 90%.

STUDIO / 1BR / 2BR residences feature Bosch in-unit washer/dryers, over-sized triple-pane windows that minimize external noise and let in natural light, and supreme insulation keeping the temperature regulated inside. SOUTHERN exposure with views of the Manhattan skyline. NORTHERN exposure with treetop views overlooking historic Hamilton Heights and the George Washington Bridge. Each residence kitchen features stone counter-tops, porcelain tile back-splashes, and stainless steel energy star appliances. With polished fixtures and tile floors, the bathrooms perfectly complement the overall design and atmosphere of each Perch residence. Perch Harlem boasts a full amenities package, including a virtual doorman, exercise room, 7th floor roof deck and residents lounge. Residents can also reserve on-site parking, storage and bicycle storage.
