Put your best foot forward!

That’s the advice your mother gave you.

Well, that doesn’t always work in New York.

At 145 Lexington Avenue between 29th and 30th streets, for example, the developer, Green Circle Construction, put his best façade in back of its 13-story, mid-block building that is known as Gramercy 145.

The slim building, which was erected in 2008, has only 12-units.

Manual Glas is the architect.

Bottom Line

A demure red-brick façade on the street and a sparkling modern glass façade “hidden” in the back.  In some circles, that might be considered classy and discrete.  In others, just reverse snobbism. 

Description

The building has a red-brick façade on Lexington Avenue with an entrance marquee and single-pane windows.

The rear of the building has a very handsome modern glass façade with a projecting center bay that is slightly cantilevered over the first floor.

Amenities

The building has a landscaped roof deck, a concierge, a virtual doorman, a keyed elevator, sidewalk landscaping, video security system with tilt/pan zoom and a 60-day backup, and storage space.  

Apartments

Some of the units have enclosed balconies.

Apartments have natural white oak flooring and Miele washers and dryers.

Kitchens have Jet Mist granite countertops with flame and brushed finishes, and white oak cabinetry. 

Baths have Zuma tubs with Crystaline Bianco marble tub decks and Kohler Sana Remo series toilets.

The three-bedroom duplex on the 11th and 12th floors have 2,026 square  feet of space  and 157 square feet of terrace, a double-height, 26-foot-long living/dining room with an open kitchen and a terrace.  Two of the bedrooms have enclosed balconies.

The 13th floor apartment is a two-bedroom unit with a 25-foot-long living/dining room with a 103-square-foot balcony and an open kitchen with an island.  The unit has 1,201 square feet.

The 9th floor apartment is a two-bedroom unit with 1,423 square feet, and a 25-foot-long living/dining room with an enclosed balcony and an open kitchen with an island.

The 2nd floor apartment is a one-bedroom unit with 770 square feet with a 26-foot-long living/dining room and an open kitchen.
