After wrapping up the Murray Hill rental Theater House three years ago, Forkosh Development has brought to market a collection of condos to the booming Gramercy-Kips Bay area with Hillrose28, a 20-story residential tower at the corner of East 28th Street and Third Avenue. Its 43 residences honed by Andres Escobar offer buyers high-end kitchens and baths, private outdoor space opportunities, beautiful views, and a generously-scaled amenity package to amplify your NYC living experience. Current availabilities blend to an average price per square foot of $1,971 with one-bedrooms asking from $995K, two-beds from $1.995M, and a three-bedroom duplex penthouse asking $5.375M.
Contemporary interiors by Lemay + Escobar feature open layouts, oversized windows, white oak flooring, and in-unit Miele washer/dryers. Kitchens are appointed with statuary marble countertops, thoughtfully considered storage, garbage disposal, wine fridge, and Bosch appliance package. Baths are finished with Italian marble tile, custom oak vanity, and polished nickel fixtures.

More than half of Hillrose28's 43 residences offer some kind of private outdoor space, and all units in them will enjoy abundant natural light thanks to a shallow floorplate and an optimal corner site with open exposures on three sides. Air rights purchased from the landmarked Parish of Our Lady of the Scapular-Saint Stephen next door guarantee open views to the west and explain why lot-line window walls were viable. The Roman Catholic church was designed by the renowned architect James Renwick Jr., designer of St. Patrick's Cathedral on Fifth Avenue.
Residential amenities will include a fully-attended lobby and concierge service, bike room, storage, a fitness center, and a lounge with kitchen, wet bar, and fireplace. Crowning the building will be a landscaped roof terrace with a BBQ grill, onyx bar, and 360-degree views of the city.

Construction topped out at approximately 200 feet tall in summer 2019 and the building's glowing Portuguese limestone facade has recently been uncovered. The balcony and terrace-laden building was designed by C3D Architecture, a growing firm who has recently finished a number of multi-family and hospitality projects along Manhattan's east side (including the nearby luxury rental The Lex).
Its location at the rendezvous of several downtown neighborhoods offers the best of both worlds: It is on a relatively tame tree-lined street, but within walking distance to Madison Square Park, the hospitals, and medical institutions on First Avenue, the East Village, Chelsea, and the Lexington Avenue subway line. Closings and occupancy are expected later this year

Buyers looking in the neighborhood, sometimes branded by its historic name of Rose Hill, can choose from several new developments coming online. Down Third Avenue, sales recently launched at VU. Around the corner, an 11-story, 43-unit condominium is taking shape at 165 Lexington Avenue. And just up the street, work is underway on a 10-story, eight-unit condominium at 128 East 28th Street.
