Elegran Visits One Manhattan Square
Last week, Elegran had the opportunity to attend a broker preview for One Manhattan Square at 252 South Street, obtaining a first-look at the rising development just as sales begin to hit the market this month. The glass-clad high-rise designed by Adamson Associates Architects and developed by Extell Development will be completed in 2019, and the 71-floor building joins the trend of new Lower East Side apartments.
View from the 6th floor of OMS
OMS features some of the best views available in the area — our own eyes can prove it! You can admire Brooklyn from across the East River, catch stunning glimpses of Midtown apartments and the Hudson River, appreciate the Financial District's new residential buildings and officer towers, or soak in views of the New York Harbor. Each apartment has a different viewing exposure, making every residence unique!
The interiors of each residence are intricately designed by Meyer Davis. 5” wide stained oak flooring covers the apartment, and you can’t miss the imported stone and custom finishes that are throughout the units. Ceilings can soar between 9’ and 12’, giving off a very spacious vibe as you walk through the entry foyer. As an added plus, washer and dryers are available in all units, concealed within a closet.
But you can also make any of these apartments feel like your own — owners have great customizability in the selection of their fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar. Two schemes, a dawn/light scheme and dusk/dark scheme, allows for either light or dark stained custom millwork with white glass wall cabinetry. No matter the theme, both blended seamlessly with the modern touches of the apartment, featuring high-quality fixtures such as white quartz countertops, stainless steel mosaic backsplashes, Blanco Quatrus stainless steel sinks, Dornbracht “Elio Collection” polished chrome faucets, and Miele appliances. Some residences even come with a built-in whole-bean coffee system and an integrated wine refrigerator!
Beyond the kitchen, the stunning master bathroom is worth your attention too, with its custom Tay Koto wood cabinetry, marble tile walls, and mosaic floors. A Toto “Carolina” toilet and Dornbracht “IMO Collection” polished chrome faucets add finishing touches to the gorgeous master bathroom. Select residences even have a wetstyle soaking bathtub, separate water closets, steam shower, and radiant heat flooring. The secondary and tertiary bathrooms also feature their own custom white back-painted glass vanities and Wetstyle custom sized sink.
One Manhattan Square also boasts countless indoor and outdoor amenities. For the constantly active, the sports club features a full basketball court, two-lane bowling alley, squash court, golf simulator, and state-of-the-art fitness center that offers a weight room, cardio room, and four fitness studios. If you’re interested in learning perfect form or taking on some new skills, cardio, dance, and yoga classes are available. You can do all of this with the convenience of a men’s and women’s locker rooms. A 75’ swimming pool, children’s wading pool, a hot tub, sauna, treatment rooms, and Hamam with cold plunge pool are also available.
You can entertain yourself or others with theater and performance space along with a wine room, cigar room, billiard room, children’s playroom, and teen arcade. The building also features a culinary lounge and demonstration kitchen, and cellar bar and lounge. Maybe take your dog out to the covered dog run, or take your children to the children’s playground while you relax on the lawns or chat with others on the social courtyards. You can even enjoy a meal outside with the outdoor kitchen and firepits. For those looking for even more unique experiences right at home, check out the adult treehouse, tea pavilion, and even the stargazing observatory!
Make your life easier by taking advantage of all the services the building offers, such as a 24-hour doorman and concierge and package delivery. Other top-quality services include a private motor court, refrigerated storage, dry cleaning valet, mail room, business center, bicycle storage, pet spa, and laundry and alterations room. The building’s location on the Lower East Side gives it quick and easy access to public transportation and the area’s new restaurants and bars.
