We lost a good parking garage along the way, but one year after the new 11-story 57 Irving Place was revealed, the nine-unit luxury condo building has reached the show-and-tell stage. Designed by architect Audrey Matlock, who also whipped up the Chelsea Modern for developer Madison Equities, 57 Irving Place gained immediate attention for a variety of quirks. Cloud-like fritted glass panels, motorized pop-out windows (more on that in the gallery above) and workaround access to private Gramercy Park is not quite de rigueur on quiet and classic Irving Place. Though the facade is still incomplete and the $18 million triplex maisonette (with private saltwater pool and parking garage) is in its early stages, some full-floors are in the homestretch. We got a look inside the 3BR, 3.5BA seventh-floor apartment, asking $7.95 million for just a shade under 2,900 square feet, where an August closing is the goal. Irving Place has plenty of history, so it'll be interesting to see how this high-end and very modern newcomer fits in with the well-oiled neighbors.
