The distinctive, 19-story, mid-block, apartment building at 60 East 86th Street between Madison and Park Avenues on the Upper East Side is the first condominium project of Glenwood Management, which has been one of the city’s most successful developers in the post-war period of luxury rental apartment buildings.

It is scheduled for completion in 2015 and has 25 units including 12 full-floor apartments, a duplex penthouse, a 10th floor duplex and a ground-floor triplex.

It has been designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and the Stephen B. Jacobs Group.


 

Bottom Line

Very elegant apartments, some with double-height living rooms, very large, multi-paned windows and dramatic staircases, in a central and prime Upper East Side location convenient to many museums, schools and religious institutions and cross-town bus service.


 

Description

The building is distinguished by its large, multi-paned windows and a fluted limestone façade with handsome window surrounds.

It has a broad bronze entrance marquee with sidewalk landscaping flanked by glass doors with angled bronze filigree similar to that used in some of the building’s handsome staircases.

The center portion of the building’s 9-story base has a broad bronze mullion and the setback top has a very large window center window.


 

Amenities

The building has a 24-hour doorman and in the basement, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a bicycle room, a wine cellar and storage room. The lobby will have a seating area a bronze screen with a library.  The building has an indoor parking.


 

Apartments

Kitchens have marble-slab countertops, custom lacquered cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances and rich gray Vals quartzite floors from the Swiss Alps.

Master baths have rosewood cabinetry, slabs of driftwood marble on the walls and floor, and fluted glass doors are framed in polished nickel.

The penthouse has a 35-foot-long living room with a nearly 20-foot-high ceiling, a wood-burning fireplace, very large windows, a windowed staircase with a very handsome banister and a roof terrace.

The 10th floor duplex has a double-height living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a very handsome, windowed staircase with a very attractive bannister and the living room is flanked by north and south terraces.

The 12th through the 17th floors are three-bedroom units with 18-foot-wide Juliet balconies with four pairs of glass doors and some of these units have wood-burning fireplaces.

The 7th floor apartment has 10-foot-high ceilings, four-bedrooms and an entry hall and a gallery that lead to a 28-foot-long living/dining room next to an enclosed, windowed, 20-foot-long kitchen.

The triplex townhouse has a living room with a nearly 20-foot-ceiling and glass doors onto a private garden.


 

History

Glenwood paid $31 million for two low-rise buildings on the site in 2013.


 

Location

The building is near some restaurants, many museums, many private schools, numerous religious institutions, Central Park, and the 86th Street station of the Lexington Avenue subway.

86th Street has cross-town bus service.
