The New York Times Features 40 East End Avenue, Our New Boutique Condominum on the Upper East Side
May 3, 2018
The New York Times featured 40 East End Avenue, a new 29 unit boutique condominium building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. We are the design architect and interior designer for the project, working in collaboration with GKV Architects for developers Lightstone Group. The building reinterprets the classic buildings of the neighborhood, a modern take on contemporary living Uptown. Led by Partner Deborah Berke and Senior Principal Stephen Brockman, the building is designed to take in sweeping views of the East River and neighborhood parks and encourage indoor/outdoor living in this quiet enclave. “The result is a 19-story masonry building with a mix of light gray and charcoal bricks, and ribbed cast stone details separating large casement windows, many of which open wide to glass Juliet balconies,” writes Tim McKeough. “Inside, Deborah Berke Partners designed an intimately scaled lobby that connects to a double-height parlor with a subtly Art Deco appearance, including a chevron-patterned floor of black and white marble, and a curled bronze-and-marble staircase.” Read more here.
