2 Cooper Square

2 Cooper Square is a brand new luxury building located at East 4th Street at the crossroads of the East Village and the Bowery. 2 Cooper Square sits across from Scarano-on-the-Bowery, which is home to musician John Legend, and has taken great pains to make sure that residents enjoy luxurious, stylish residences. The 144-unit luxury rental property offers city living at its best with a rooftop pool creating a country club-like atmosphere. Other amenities include a cutting-edge fitness center and residents’ lounge to intimate private terraces and a rooftop deck offering unparalleled views of one of Manhattan’s hottest neighborhoods.

Units and Pricing

There are five available units at 2 Cooper Square, ranging from a studio priced at $3,150/month to a two bedroom priced at $8,500/month. The median monthly price at 2 Cooper Square is $4,450 – quite high (and clearly due to the building’s hotter than hot location).

Features and Amenities

Residents at 2 Cooper Square enjoy luxurious apartments with top of the line finishes. Apartments boast high ceilings (think 9-12 feet tall), solid oak hardwood floors, individual room control for heating and cooling, Bosch washer/dryers, gourmet chef’s kitchens with granite countertops and more. Some units have walkout terraces. The building boast a 24-hour doorman and concierge, refrigerator storage in the lobby, a tenant’s lounge with fireplace and catering kitchen, a game center with Wii and arcade, a fitness center with a yoga and Pilates studio, private tenant storage, bicycle storage, private dining rooms and a private screening room that can accommodate up to 15 people.


2 Cooper Square is located in the heart of Manhattan’s hottest new neighborhood, The Bowery. Sitting on East 4th Street, just a hop, skip and a jump away from hotspots like The Bowery Hotel’s Gemma restaurant, Phebe’s, and a bevy of other dining and drinking options, 2 Cooper Square isn’t far from the shopping that Soho has to offer, nor the transportation hub that is Union Square. The Bowery was once a deserted avenue full of drug addicts and garbage. These days, it’s the coolest place around, chock full of hip boutiques, expensive restaurants and of the moment nightlife spots.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

If you’re the alternative, ahead of the trends type and have lots of cash to burn, 2 Cooper Square is the building for you. Not just anyone can afford the luxury building’s incredible apartments and amenities, but for those who can, the building really turns up the heat. There’s a bevy of amenities, and the residences are spacious and sun-drenched, with top of the line finishes. The location is one of the hottest around – the Bowery can only stand to get more popular from here. There aren’t too many luxury apartment rental buildings in the neighborhood, so when it comes to Bowery apartments, 2 Cooper Square’s pretty much got a monopoly. That is, until everyone else gets the memo and the luxury rental buildings start sprouting up left and right.

The neighborhood can’t be beat – it’s the place to live in downtown Manhattan right now, and offers access to tons of public transportation.
