Curbed's real estate spy takes a look at three developments driving the burgeoning luxury residential scene at East 90th Street and above on the Upper East Side.
The Metropolitan, 181 East 90th Street [Brown Harris Stevens]
Originally called The Carnegie, this 32 story, 94 unit apartment building has gotten a lot of press because of its architect, the legendary Philip Johnson. Prices from $850,000 to $7.5 million. Michelle Conte of Brown Harris Stevens is the marketing and sales director for the property. Other brokers with sales experience in the building include Iris Palley at Elliman and John Maher at Citi Habitats.
