Bridge Tower Place is situated between First and York Avenue in the Upper East Side, less than a block from the East River. Built in 1999 by the developer Brodsky and Peter Lehrer and Costas Kondylis Architects, this 38-story high-rise features 128 apartments with some of the best views in the area thanks to the small buildings surrounding it. The brick and glass tower is supported by a wide, low-rise limestone base with an impressive lobby designed by David Rockwell.
The luxury of Bridge Tower Place extends well beyond the lobby, of course, with high quality finishes including granite countertops, marble baths, and masterful woodworking and detail on the doors and maple floors. Beautiful terraces and a meticulously maintained rooftop garden provide excellent opportunities for outdoor relaxation. Pet-friendly policies and a children's playroom make Bridge Tower an excellent choice for families, while the onsite health club and access to nearby riverside esplanades cater to the physically active. Other amenities include 24-hour attended lobby, concierge, private garage, bike room and laundry facilities. There is easy access to public transportation with the crosstown bus on 57th and the FDR/59th St. subway stop only a few blocks away.
