123 Third, the signature residential development in East Union Square, is nearly sold-out after 90 percent of the 47-unit condominium closed at breakneck speed. The remaining units are a quartet of exquisite penthouses – each meticulously appointed with custom finishes, top-of-the-line appliances, sweeping views and modern living spaces – perched above one of Manhattan’s most sought-after neighborhoods.
Each penthouse features a large set-back terrace, four exposures and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer unobstructed views of some of the world’s most iconic landmarks – including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and the Williamsburg and Brooklyn Bridges – and the bustling downtown New York City streetscape.
Rarer still for any neighborhood, two of the building’s penthouses are full-floor homes. Penthouse 17A, a three-bedroom, three-bathroom home with 2,123 interior square feet and 283 exterior square feet is priced at $4 million; Penthouse 18A, an exquisite full-floor duplex valued at $4.525 million, offers three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms over 2,334 interior square feet and 582 exterior square feet.
In addition, Penthouse 15A is a stunning two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom duplex with 2,049 interior square feet. It has a loft-style 697-square-foot “great room,” a mammoth 957-square-foot wrap-around terrace and is priced at $3.975 million. Penthouse 15B is a $3.6 million duplex with spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. It has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms comprising 2,027 interior square feet, with an additional 317 square feet of private exterior space.
“Buyers recognize the exceptional nature of what is provided at 123 Third, and the Penthouse Collection has been equally well received,” said Jim Brawders of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, exclusive marketing and sales agent for the building. “The livability of the East Union Square neighborhood, coupled with the extraordinary details, finishes and design of the Penthouse Collection, present buyers with the opportunity to live in a finely crafted aerie with every service and amenity.”
123 Third’s penthouse kitchens feature custom cabinetry from Poliform, the renowned Italian design studio, with Pioggia Grey high-gloss finishes, Riga by Poliform linear pulls, white Luna Quartz countertops, Dornbracht polished chrome faucets, and a blockbuster all-Miele appliance package. These comprise the finest German-engineered appliances: custom-paneled refrigerators and dishwashers, stainless steel wall ovens and 36” stainless steel cook-tops with vented Miele hoods. Additional appliances for the penthouse residences include 27” Miele speed microwave ovens and Subzero wine storage.
Master bathrooms likewise feature unparalleled custom work, including walnut-faced floating cabinets, floor-to-ceiling large-format Italian Statuarito marble wall tile, Dornbracht polished chrome fixtures and Duravit tubs and shower modules with integrated benches. Lofty ceilings of up to 11’2” and oversize picture windows with high energy conservation and acoustic performance ratings complete the outstanding package.
Amenities for residents of 123 Third include a full-time doorman, fitness center and refrigerated storage, plus the option of bike storage and additional storage rooms. The building, designed by renowned architects Perkins Eastman with pending LEED Certification, contains an iLounge – a multimedia center boasting computer suites with the latest in high-tech printing, editing and audio-visual facilities – as well as an exquisitely landscaped private residents’ garden with outdoor kitchen, lounge seating and sun terrace.
Set at the intersection of Union Square, Greenwich Village, the East Village and Gramercy Park, East Union Square boasts some of the best parks, dining, shopping and entertainment New York City has to offer. The famed Union Square greenmarket offers a continually rotating selection of locally sourced produce, meats and fish. Top-rated restaurants, such as Momofuku and Pure Food & Wine, provide diners with one-of-a-kind culinary experiences. Shopping in the neighborhood gives residents an incomparable variety of options, including Kiehl’s, the famed Strand Bookstore and the home décor one-stop shop, ABC Carpet & Home.
