Nestled amongst historic buildings in a neighborhood of Manhattan steeped with history and vibrancy, 60 Orchard Street lies at the heart of the Lower East Side. What was once the center of immigration in New York City is now full of small music venues, bars, and local boutiques. Add to that some of the city's fabled grittiness and it's no wonder why people continue to move to the Lower East Side. What makes the condominiums for sale at 60 Orchard Street stand out from the rest is its striking contemporary design, both inside and out, a rarity in this historic district.
With only seven residences, 60 Orchard Street is in many ways calmer than its neighbors, despite its bold façade. In each condo for sale at 60 Orchard Street, a curved hallway contrasts with the sharp and clean lines that come with modern design, connecting the eclectic kitchen to the ultra-contemporary bathroom. Small pendant lights hang over the smooth wood island in the kitchen, indirectly lighting the state-of-the-art appliances and granite counter top. On the other hand, Italian tiles mix with porcelain in the bathroom for a daring design statement.
It would seem that the constantly changing collection of bars, clubs, restaurants, and shops throughout the Lower East Side would be 60 Orchard Street's primary amenity, but it isn't. A video intercom system allows residents to individually manage entrance into their apartment, while the ability to connect a washer and dryer is certainly a plus. Each residence has either an angular balcony or roof terrace connected by seamlessly invisible folding glass walls. Certainly different from much of the housing stock of the Lower East Side, 60 Orchard Street adds diversity to not only the neighborhood's architecture, but to that of New York City as a whole.
