Manhattan’s first Passive House rental, Perch Harlem was constructed to provide continuously filtered air and to minimize noise pollution and energy consumption, resulting in lower utility bills – a plus for students on a budget. All 34 homes come equipped with oversized triple-pane windows, Bosch in-unit washers/dryers, and kitchens that feature stone countertops, porcelain tile backsplashes, and stainless steel energy star appliances. The building also provides a comprehensive amenity package that includes a virtual doorman, exercise room, roof deck, common lounge, on-site parking, bike and personal storage, and complimentary concierge service by Hello Alfred, which can do everything from stocking your fridge with groceries to watering your plants. Nearby, you’ll find the 1/A/C trains (15-minute commute to Columbia University), restaurants along Broadway, like Harlem Public and Bono Trattoria, and cultural institutions like the Sugar Hill Museum of Art & Storytelling, Dance Theatre of Harlem, and more.
