Located in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of Manhattan, 160 East 22nd Street is a 21-story, 84-unit condominium apartment building. In addition to luxury residences, the building includes ground floor retail space.

The design is based on a modern interpretation of the elegant and timeless classic pre-war apartment buildings in the neighborhood. The limestone-clad building’s massing is sculpted to incorporate a 24’ cantilever and punctuated with alternating deep-set fenestration patterns.

As with the exterior design, the interior is comprised of classical proportions and infused with a contemporary character. A well-balanced variation of noble materials and details throughout the building creates a sleek style with a touch of luxury vintage, all executed by local craftsmen.
