The new development at 785 Eighth Avenue was crafted by ILA and features a stunning and eclectic design. The forty-floor residential glass tower sits on an oddly shaped site, which results in a unique building with an angular, sculptural and abstract quality. The tower contains 110 condominium units on the forty floors above ground level; the ground floor consists of a residential lobby and a commercial space that extends to the outdoor garden in the rear. The building has two entrances: The main residential lobby that features a skylight and waterfall is accessible via 48th Street, while Eighth Avenue provides access to the retail space.
The residences feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls, which afford residents with stunning views of the eastern parts of Manhattan and the Hudson River while simultaneously flooding the apartments with natural light. The interiors also provide soaring, high ceilings and stunning hardwood floors. The second- and seventh-floor units have outdoor terraces, and apartments from the eighth to the fortieth floor have balconies. The rooftop has outdoor terraces with hot tubs and is part of the fortieth-floor penthouse and the thirty-ninth-floor apartments.
The building offers several perks with which to tempt the prospective client. Located in the cellar of the building is a state-of-the-art fitness center with changing rooms and bicycle storage as well as lounge space.
This new development in Manhattan is located in the so-called "Movie District" of Eighth Avenue. It is in close proximity to the dynamic Theater District and the iconic Times Square. There are many nearby options for dining, shopping, entertainment and transportation.
