Lowdown: "Line forming outside new UES residential building," read the subject line of an email sent our way by a flack for this project yesterday. Remarkably, if the PR is to be believed, a line really was forming: "The Lucida, the Upper East Side's first LEED-certified green residential building, is hosting a grand opening red-carpet event at 6 p.m. tonight - a line is expected to form outside the sales center around 4:30 p.m. Only 500 people made the 'VIP' list, but more than 1000 guests are expected to turn out for the opening." Believe it—or not. (Anyone actually there last night care to tell us how long the line actually turned out to be?)
In any case, yeah, here's Extell's newest on the Upper East Side, all greened up for your healthy living pleasure. With units starting at $1.95 million, this new development (now under construction, with residency for late next year) at least seems to deserve its luxury tag. And oh, the perks! Check out the rendering below, from the penthouse renderings on the official website. We're calling it "Daddy Got a Brand New Mom."
