It’s been less than a week since Extell’s Lower East Side behemoth, One Manhattan Square, topped out. Earlier this week Curbed had a chance to tour the upper floors of the building, and get a glimpse of some of the incredible views it has to offer.
The condo building stands 80-stories tall, but due to construction work we were only able to go to the 60s. Nevertheless, the views were still pretty epic, and we’ll get to those below, but first here’s a little bit about where the project is at right now: Located at 252 South Street, the building stands 800-feet tall and features 815 condos that come in one- through three-bedroom variants.
Sales launched last fall, and by March this year, 100 apartments had entered into contract. Extell declined to say how many had sold or gone into contract since, but a spokesperson said sales continued to be strong and that an update was forthcoming later this fall.
Currently available apartments here range in price from $1.23 million for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit, and go up to $6.6 million for a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom unit. Once complete, residents will also have access to 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities including multiple swimming pools, a bowling alley, a fitness center overlooking the East River, a treehouse (yep!), and a covered dog run, among many other features. Construction is still on track to wrap up next year.
Now, let’s get to those views!
