The boundary separating Midtown's skyscrapers from the genteel blocks of the Upper East and West Sides continues to blur. A steady creep of tall towers has marched northward from 59th Street into the residential areas of the 60s and low 70s, swallowing up air rights and stirring uproar as they race for secure park views. Spurred by the success of Billionaire's Row condos like 432 Park Avenue and One57, the newest crop of sparkly invaders have been slower to rise and mired in litigation (looking at you 200 Amsterdam, 50 West 66th Street, and 249 East 69th Street). Historically, however, the endurance of deep-pocketed developers has usually prevailed, bringing to market hundreds of pricey condo apartments in blockbuster builds such as Time Warner Center and 15 Central Park West.
Over on the staunchly-protected East Side, developers have had less success due to tighter zoning laws, a scarcity of development sites, and a sprawling patchwork of historic districts that span the entire length of the park. Just outside this protected zone at 1059 Third Avenue, Chance Gordy’s Real Estate Inverlad Development and Steve Mills’ Third Palm Capital have successfully navigated the resistance and are preparing to launch sales at The Leyton, a 37-residence condominium tower with high ceilings, dazzling views, and bespoke interiors by Elana Frampton.

Set to officially kick off sales in March 2021, The Leyton will offer one- to four-bedroom homes amplified by a club-like amenity suite on the 24th floor. While details on layouts are still under wraps, newly-released renderings show that some homes will have custom marble fireplaces, wide-plank wood floors, and very high ceilings. Crowning the 30-story tower will be ten full-floor spreads and one duplex penthouse with sweeping views of the skyline, park, and East River.

Judging from the exterior, most spreads will also have some form of private outdoor space. Robin Schneiderman, Managing Director of Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing, who is steering sales at the tower, explains that Upper East Side buyers are looking for larger homes with privacy and outdoor space. She also notes that Manhattan's new development sales picked up steam at the tail end of 2020, outpacing the volume seen in 2019.

The sleek glass and stone tower was designed by Manuel Glas, a low-profile architect who has designed several mid-scale residential buildings downtown and The Clare condos nearby on Second Avenue. Frampton Co , led and founded by Elena Frampton, is responsible for perfecting the private residences. Her prior works exude warmth and comfort even in the most majestic of spaces. The award-winning Alexandra Champalimaud is tailoring the two floors of amenity spaces. It includes The Brandy Room (shown above), a private indoor and outdoor lounge on the 24th floor inspired by the world’s most renowned luxury hotels.
Set between East 62nd and 63rd Streets, The Leyton is steps from Bloomingdale's and the finest shopping in the city. An entrance to the still-spotless Second Avenue Subway is nearby, as are many of the headquarter offices of East Midtown and cultural institutions of the Upper East Side. Details on pricing have yet to be released but given the high caliber of this sneak peek, expect them to be unapologetically high. Delivery is anticipated for summer 2021.
