287 East Houston Street, tucked between Clinton and Suffolk Streets, is right in the middle of the Lower East Side, which gives it easy access to transportation, not to mention the shopping, restaurants and nightlife that is putting the neighborhood back on homebuyer’s radar.
The creation of AA Studios’ Aldo Andreoli with executive architect Jeffery Cole, 287 East Houston Street is a modern take on iconic cast iron structures that exemplified the initial architecture of the Lower East Side.
The first thing you notice is the oversized windows that capture light and offer spectacular views north and south of the Midtown skyline. These windows afford unmatched views of the Empire State building, the Chrysler Building and the Freedom Tower.
Comprised of 28 units, the building offers a nice array of amenities including a part-time doorman (supplemented by a virtual doorman), a fitness center, bike storage, private storage, supplemental laundry and a landscaped common roof deck with an outdoor kitchen.
If you are thinking the units are cookie cutter, think again. Each condominium is custom designed to offer well-organized spaces that are comfortable, yet unique. One- and two-bedroom homes are available in addition to the three bedroom triplex penthouse.
Two Maisonette homes come with large private gardens and the two penthouses on the top of the building feature plenty of terrace space.
