Construction continues to push forward on the Karl Fischer-designed building, Vitre, located at 302 East 96th Street and though it’ll be a bit longer before the project is finished, sales are officially underway for a few of the 21 story tower’s “affordable luxury” apartments.
As expected, pricing for the first crop of the building’s 48 one- to three-bedroom apartments to hit the market with just a few six digit apartments but the majority of them asking over a million dollars, with prices ranging from $915,000 to as much as $4.29 million.
The residences come with interiors by Elianart, and feature a contemporary design that includes smoked European oak floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, chef’s kitchens with custom cabinetry, “spa-like” bathrooms equipped with a soaking tub, and bedrooms with fancy Italian wardrobes as well as leather accents.
Many of the apartments will offer private spaces of their own, but a few new renderings reveal that the building will offer a rooftop sun deck with stellar views of the East River and city skyline. Other building amenities are set to include a two-story lobby, a resident’s lounge, optional on-site parking space for an extra fee, and bicycle storage.
Vitre’s sales gallery at 1776 Second Avenue has incorporated virtual reality into the its tactic, allowing prospective buyers to walk through the apartments and even step out onto terraces for as close to a real-life experience as it’ll get right now.
The building is expected to see its first move-ins sometime in late summer 2018.
