Meet Rutherford Place, an early, and quiet, entry into the fall new development rush. The building is officially on the market today, though the first round of listings appears to have hit StreetEasy in August, the website is still at teaser stage, and the listings don't offer much in the way of images or floorplans. Still, there's new real estate for sale, and here's what we know about it: there are 78 available units, studios through three-bedrooms, and the building has something of a pedigree. J.P. Morgan gave it to the city, and it was designed by Robert Henderson Robertson in 1902 and subsequently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has, of course, been updated with "high-end contemporary finishes" and amenities for its foray onto the market. The apartments are all different, some with 17-foot ceilings, others with patios or 10-foot windows.
The building is still getting some work done, including the renovation of the gold leaf- and Carrara marble-filled lobby and the entrance. Other amenities include the roof deck, bike storage, gym, and nearby Stuyvesant Square. Unlike the snobbier Gramercy Park, Stuyvesant Square doesn't require keys for entry.
