At 36 stories, VU stands prominently on Manhattan’s East Side. Peaking high above the lively neighborhoods below, VU provides respite from the high paced energy of city life with robust amenities and conveniences.

At VU, it feels as if every hour is golden hour when you bask in the natural light of dramatic, open views.
The homes at VU range from studios to three-bedrooms, all with white oak flooring and abundant natural light. Award-winning designer Paris Forino crafts the living spaces in soothing neutral tones with handsome accents to create a sophisticated aesthetic. With lofty ceiling heights up to 11', residents come home to a peaceful retreat that feels light and airy. The unrivaled views overlook Manhattan’s skyline from uptown to downtown, the East River and beyond.
Clock your miles in as you train for the New York City Marathon, sit down for a private guided meditation to begin your day, or host a birthday party.

From the fitness center to the screening room, to the lounge and the pantry, Paris Forino designed each space with thoughtful intention toward how New Yorkers live today. High up on the 36th floor sits the rooftop terrace, where lush greenery and plush furniture invite you to take in unobstructed and unrivaled city views.
