At 34 stories and 388 feet high, Eastlight makes a striking statement at the crossroads of NoMad, Kips Bay, and Murray Hill. The 144-unit tower began closings in late 2022 and so far, nearly 50 units have closed at an average price of $1,763 per square foot.
Current availabilities start at $827K for studios, $1.256 million for one-bedrooms, and $2.338 million for two-bedrooms. These prices are competitive with its nearest neighbors; at the nearby Lexi Condos, one-bedrooms start at $1.4 million. Down Third Avenue, availabilities at the amenity-rich VU New York range from a studio for $895K to a three-bedroom penthouse for $9.995 million.

The building is attractive to investors given the area's proximity to Midtown offices and various medical and educational institutions. Several previously sold apartments are now available for rent at competitive prices.

One-bedroom units are currently leasing for approximately $5,500/month, while a two-bedroom is listed at $8,500/month. Eastlight apartments command slightly higher prices compared to units at the recently completed luxury rental, The Murray, where studios start at $4,190 per month, one-bedrooms at $5,070/month, and two-bedrooms at $6,995/month. Nevertheless, residents at Eastlight enjoy superior finishes and a more exclusive living experience with fewer neighbors to share common spaces.

Situated on the corner of Third Avenue and East 34th Street, Eastlight's design by CetraRuddy is distinguished by a cantilevered facade, a gracious setback, clean lines, and floor-to-ceiling windows. China Overseas Land & Investment is at the helm, having bought the development site from Extell for $75 million in November 2017.
Eastlight is well situated in close proximity to NYU Langone Medical Center, Alexandria Center for Life Sciences, and the future home of SPARC Kips Bay. Cultural and retail offerings include the Morgan Library & Museum, the Kips Bay AMC movie theater, and high fashion retailer Dover Street Market. Popular restaurants in NoMad and Murray Hill are also nearby; those who would rather cook at home have their choice of Trader Joe’s, Fairway, and Kalustyan. The 33rd Street 6 stop is three blocks away, and Grand Central Terminal is up the street.

↓ 34th Street is one of the busiest and noisiest in Manhattan, but one would never know it from Eastlight's floor-to-ceiling sound-attenuated windows.
