NEW YORK – February 4, 2016 – Renowned New York City architectural firm, Ismael Leyva Architects has been selected to design the new luxury rental building located at 152 East 87th Street in Manhattan.

This conversion of a former garage site into a 19-story luxury apartment complex is currently underway and expected to be completed in 2017. Ismael Leyva Architects has crafted the 170,000 square foot residential building to achieve the highest price per square foot in the neighborhood.

The building is designed to explore “Townhouse Style Living” in a vertical landscape. The building’s wide façade is articulated as four distinct townhouse volumes with metal and glass recalling the lantern like rooftops of some of the prominent buildings in the Carnegie Hill District. The base of the building is clad in contextual materials (terracotta and limestone) which characterize this district. The entry lobby is reminiscent of a Grand Parlor which blends the elegance of the Upper East Side aesthetic with a modern take on the traditional townhouse style interior. The residences front onto an energetic 87th street while also having the privacy of an elevated rear amenity terrace. These front and rear facing residences challenge the limitations of traditional multifamily residential tower living by creating a new townhouse inspired lifestyle.

“We are very pleased to have been selected to design this new luxury addition to the Upper East Side. The Allan Garage site offers us a valuable opportunity to design a significant new mid-block development. We have created many unique duplex residences that take advantage of building setbacks to feature private terraces not often offered in such a prime location,” said Ismael Leyva, president of Ismael Leyva Architects.

The building will feature a grand lobby, 56 Residences including 6 duplex units with private terraces, a rooftop and amenity terrace, a multilevel exercise facility, tenant recreation room, children’s playroom, tenant storage, bicycle spaces as well as 150 on-site parking spaces.
