Developer-slash-property manager Stonehenge seems to like turning hospital staff quarters into apartments for
laypeople non-medical professionals with a decent budget. Last summer St. Vincent's staff housing completed its conversion to 160 rental apartments downtown, and now, leasing just started at the company's newest project, which is... St. Luke's staff housing converted into 95 rentals. In the 1931-built Art Deco tower at 1080 Amsterdam, renovated by Steven Kratchman Architects with interior design by NYC darling Andres Escobar, Stonehenge and developer-teammate SL Green are offering studios range from $2,500 to $2,800 a month, one-bedrooms from $3,500 to $4,000, and two-bedrooms from $6,495. The photos above and below offer the first look at the apartments' interiors, in which sunken living rooms and hardwood floors seem to be a thing; the first move-ins are slated for June 1.
Many apartments have outdoor space, but the 2BR/2BA penthouse takes up a full floor and has "a formal dining room and wrap-around terrace with magnificent views stretching from Columbia University to FiDi." Rents extend up to $12,000/month, and presumably that high cap applies to the PH.
Most Stonehenge properties have pretty crazy amenities (albeit in one case tinged with an accessibility scandal), and 1080 Amsterdam is no exception. For no extra charge, there's a 24-hour attended lobby, laundry room, a gym with private studio; a media lounge with a flat-screen TV, seating and Wi-Fi, and bike storage. Akin to an adult dorm, the building also hosts events like exercises classes, dinner parties with guest chefs, and movie screenings.
More apartments are available by contacting the leasing office, but StreetEasy currently has three listed: A studio for $2,780/month, a 1BR for $3,570, and a 2BR for $6,495.
