We've all seen the coveted pre-war NYC apartments with bulky fireplaces, but how often do we see them within a new development's contemporary interiors? Instead, developers are choosing to put a modern spin on this comforting traditional element by creating sleek interiors with fireplaces to match.

See our roundup below to find listings in brand new luxury condominiums (2016-2018) that use untraditional fireplaces to serve as the focal point of each living space.

Loft2 floorplan
150 Wooster Street was a rare opportunity for KUB Capital to build a ground-up residential development in SoHo's landmark district – and it was not squandered. Inside the masonry and steel facade lies loft 2, a 1,907-square-foot private landscaped garden with an outdoor kitchen, four bedrooms, and four bathrooms. The home has all the modern conveniences, including a smart home automation system and Lutron motorized shades, but also blends new and old with a sculptural gas fireplace that elegantly separates the living area and the dining room.
