The Upper East Side has some of Manhattan's most magnificent architecture ranging from Gilded Age mansions to elaborate apartment houses that are still considered the paradigm for high-end urban living today. Given the neighborhood's global cachet and high land prices, developers must build to a higher standard to court buyers. At 163 East 62nd Street, near the neighborhood's border with Midtown East, Churchill RE has launched sales on a 10-unit condominium that seeks to encapsulate the neighborhood's pre-war elegance and marry it with the airy spaces and modern conveniences buyers have grown accustomed to.

Designed by Ben Hansen Architect, the seven-story building's public face is clad in a glowing limestone skin, oversized windows, and an onyx-colored entryway buffered by sidewalk plantings. Interiors are similarly refined and feature beamed ceilings, graciously-proportioned rooms, and tasteful finishes and fixtures. The homes range from two- to four-bedrooms and start at $2.5 million. Below, we take a swing through this new, understated residential addition to the Upper East Side.

↓ 163 East 62nd Street is sited on an atypical Upper East Side sidestreet of low-scale townhouses and walk-ups.

↓ The site was assembled in 2015 by Michael Paul Enterprises for $14.05 million who envisioned a five-unit condo that would combine two townhouses at 163 and 165 East 62nd Street. The developer sold the assemblage in 2018 to Churchill RE for $18.2M.

↓ One of the townhouses (165) was previously the home of actress Brooke Shields.

↓ As the local zoning prescribes, midblocks are human-scaled while the avenues, Lexington and Third in this case, allow for high-density towers


↓ Sales officially launched over the summer. All homes have formal foyers flowing into open, light-filled living spaces.

↓ A high standard of craftsmanship is seen in the wide-plank oak floors, beamed ceilings, and oversized windows.

↓ Living spaces face tree-lined East 63rd Street while master suites and bedroom overlook a rear garden courtyard

↓ All homes feature custom closets, central AC, recessed lighting and a washer-dryer.

↓ The graciously-scaled chef's kitchen has Luce di Luna slab counters, urban brick concrete Gatling gray backsplash, and custom cabinetry.

↓ Kitchens are fitted with Miele appliances that include a 36-inch dual fuel range oven, a fully integrated full-size dishwasher, and a 36-inch wall mount hood.

↓ "The master suite, conveniently positioned on the opposite end of the home, is an oasis of elevated calm designed for rest and relaxation."

↓ En-suite master baths have an expanded glass-enclosed rain shower, a deep soaking tub, double custom vanities enclosed in opulent stone.

↓ Secondary bedrooms are similarly divine

↓ Several residences boast private terraces. The penthouse roof deck, seen below, has iconic views of the Midtown skyline.

↓ The dupex penthouse can be had for a cool $4 million. The average price/ft2 of listings is just under $2,000.


↓ Lenox Hill condo prices are off their 2016 peak but have held steady during the pandemic.

↓ The development also has within a one-of-a-kind townhouse with four bedrooms and its own garden backyard.

↓ Amenities include an attended lobby, fitness room, bike room, and a common roof deck with city views.

↓ The address is a 15-minute walk to Central Park, and steps from Bloomingdale's and the high-end shopping of Fifth and Madison Avenues.
