Everything old is new again at Steven Harris – designed 107 East 79th
Sales were launched today at 109 East 79, the newest luxury condominium developed by New York-based Legion Investment Group and designed by AD100 Steven Harris Architects.
The 20-story building, which houses 31 residences with two to five bedrooms, is a modern homage to the neighborhood’s pre-war architecture, with subtle nods to Art Deco, Bauhaus and mid-century modern aesthetic.
Spacious layouts also pay homage to early 20th-century architectural icons Rosario Candela, Emery Roth, and JER Carpenter, says Harris, with many units offering low-slung living rooms and voluminous 20-foot ceilings. Like the work of Candela, Carpenter and Roth, “the design started with the apartment,” Harris said in a statement.
Custom-made amenities include a double-height fitness center designed by Wright Fit and a private garden with a water wall designed by sculptor Mig Perkins.
Pricing starts at $ 5.5 million for a two-bedroom residence to $ 35 million for a one-story penthouse with a private rooftop terrace, according to Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, which is the exclusive agent for marketing and sale. Occupancy is scheduled for summer 2022.
