Review by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of CityRealty.com.
 

This extremely handsome, 17-story residential condominium building was designed by Robert A. M. Stern, the architect of 15 Central Park West and major new luxury towers at 220 Central Park South, 520 Park Avenue, and 30 Park Place.

It will have 41 apartments including three duplex “townhomes” and two penthouses, one of which will have a terrace with more than 4,000 square feet.

Montroy Andersen DeMarco is the architect of record.

It is scheduled to open in 2017.

The Corigin Real Estate Group of which Edward Baquero is the president and Florida East Coast Realty are the developers.

Corigin also developed the Element at 555 East 59th Street and five student housing properties for New York University and is developing CANco Lofts in Jersey City.  Corigin is a spinoff of  Coalco New York, the American operation of Coalco Development of Moscow.

Bottom Line

With this building, architect Stern now joins Rosario Candela and J. E. R. Carpenter at the designer summit of large, sumptuous apartments and erases the traditional distinction between very fine pre-war and post-war apartment buildings.

Apart from its lack of upfront, drop-dead views, it doesn’t get much better.

Description

The building has a two-story, rusticated limestone base with a two-story-high arched porte-corchère driveway entrance on 80th Street that leads to a courtyard with a limestone wall fountain.  There is a canopied entrance on East End Avenue flanked by tall and impressive light sconces.

The circular driveway leads to an octagonal lobby with Vermont Racette white marble and Atajia Azul limestone, rift cut limed and grey-washed white oak paneling and an alabaster and bronze chandelier.

The lobby has a three-story limestone staircase that leads up to a library on the second level with a fireplace, a billiard room with a wet bar and a wall of privately keyed lockers for residents to store their favorite cordials, and a private poker room, and down to a wine cellar and tasting room with a kitchen, the fitness center, and storage.

The third through the 12-floor rises without setback with grey-brick façades and some slightly inset large bay windows.  The 12th floor has an inset Paladian-style corner window beneath short balustrades that are repeated at 10 other setbacks in the quite complex top that culminates in a large arched window watertank enclosure with four short and squat finials.

Some of the setbacks have bay window rooms and there are some decorative balconies.

According to Mr. Baquero, “20 East End Avenue will change the way people think about new-classic design,” adding that “we have evolved from classic roots to exceed today’s modern benchmarks for luxury, without compromising our commitment to the refinement and lifestyle principles of the past.”

Amenities

Two-story-high arched driveway leading to courtyard with limestone wall fountain, octagonal lobby with grand staircase to library, poker room and private lockers for residents’ favorite cordials.
