Amenities include a fully fitted gym, a pool and arcade room with the coolest games on the block, a landscaped garden and sky deck. The majority of tenants in the building are made up of young, busy working professionals. Suited up men and women lounging around the lobby, garden terrace and sky deck area is a common sight.

Why It’s Hot

The partnership with the famous Knitting Factory has certainly proved fruitful. Live jazz music from this powerful concert house happens almost weekly in the lobby of the building. Friday nights will never be the same again. Breath-taking views of the Hudson River from the sky deck are also definitely a plus!
