In the ground-floor retail space of the newly sold-out Story House condo on East 22nd Street sits the sales office for another new project, Toll Brothers' 160 East 22nd Street, which came to market quietly in April and is now about 40 percent sold. Since the building itself is still a construction zone, we stopped by the sales office with photographer Will Femia for a look at the interior design and fixtures?take a peek in the gallery above.
StreetEasy shows eight active listings for the building, several of which have had PriceUppers since first hitting the market. The current slate of prices ranges from $909,000 for a studio to $2,729,990 for a 3BR. The sales team has been adding new listings as active ones sell; so far about half of the one-bedrooms and just under half of the two-bedrooms have found buyers, as well as three studios and one penthouse, according to Heather Wyse, the project's sales manager.
The building, designed by Perkins Eastman, has a gray Indiana limestone facade and an unusual architectural feature: a 24-foot cantilever over a small neighboring building. (There's a vacant lot next door on which a five-story building could rise, but views from 160 East 22nd would not be interrupted.) Toll Brothers is aiming for LEED certification for the project.
Two outdoor rooftop spaces are private to the penthouses, but there's also an outdoor space for everyone. Views, which include the Madison Square Park clocktower and Gramercy Park from various points within the building, start around the eighth floor. For those who don't have Gramercy Park views, well, the building's playroom is designed to look like the park. Just grow up to make lots of money, kids, and someday you might be able to get a key to the real thing. Closings at the building should start in late summer or early fall of 2014.
