There are many neighborhoods we love throughout the city, each with their own flavor and attractions. Yet Gramercy has always had a sweet spot in our hearts. Our love only increases with our Monthly Gem: 121 E. 22nd Street. Few locations are more perfect than this, ideally situated at the intersection of Gramercy Park and Flatiron. Not only are there transportation hubs mere minutes away from the building, but you have Madison Square Park in its back-yard, the Union Square market in its front-yard, and Eataly right around the corner. The sheer concentration of restaurants, retail and activities rivals any other neighborhood.
The building itself is stunning, with 133 units all-in; large enough to be substantial but not so large as to be overwhelming. Notably, this is the first residential building in NYC to be designed by the world-renowned architectural firm OMA. And it shows. From its unique, three-dimensional glass façade, to its practical-luxury interiors, the building pays homage to the distinctive cross-roads where it’s situated. As you might expect, residents will be able to enjoy a cadre of amenities, from an indoor pool, residents’ lounge, fitness center, screening room and children’s playroom, among others. We can’t wait to see this gem evolve to completion as a new landmark in an already impressive neighborhood.
