You can't miss it.

Just north of the Manhattan Bridge at 252 South Street, the massive glass-tower condominium, generically called One Manhattan Square, recently reached its 823-foot height. The project from Extell Development has been surrounded in controversy - somewhat. New development on the Lower East Side is far beyond its advent, but closer to the waterfront in the Two Bridges enclave, a building to this scale has never been seen. Opposing stakeholders have not only been vocal with this project, but also another residential skyscraper planned nearby at 247 Cherry Street.

One Manhattan Square has more than 800 condominiums, including 25 homes in the Skyscape Collection on the highest floors. Occupancy is expected next year and residents of the building, designed by Adamson Associates, will have access to a 100,000-square-foot amenity package. A plethora of outdoor amenities, many of which have been designed by West 8, span more than 45,000 square feet.

Listings on CityRealty average $2,202 per square foot and those not in-contract include the 1,487-square-foot #66C for $4.277 million, which has three bedrooms and three bathrooms; and there is also a 15th-floor two-bedroom with a master suite (#15L) for $2.055 million. Meyer Davis Studio designed interiors with a variety of materials including oak, imported stone, and mosaic tile. See interior photos and the listings here.

The development includes an affordability component at a site adjacent to the tower. Extell worked with Dattner Architects to design the 13-story 229 Cherry Street.

229 Cherry Street has 204 apartments reserved for New Yorkers making 60% of the area median income (AMI) and they will be awarded through the city's housing lottery.

As our blog 6sqft reports, the lottery is open for units starting from $947 per month. The building's amenities include a landscaped terrace, fitness center and lounge, and the deadline to apply is January 2, 2018. More details are on 6sqft here.
