New York is Bouncing Back with a New Meaning of Home

40 East End avenue is a newly built 20-story boutique condominium from developers Lightstone, offering 28 bespoke residences on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. A stately combination of classic elegance with modern luxuries and sought-after amenities, the building boasts two- to five-bedroom apartments, a maisonette with a private courtyard and outdoor kitchen, and a duplex penthouse with a private rooftop terrace.

Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Deborah Berke Partners and Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects, 40 East End Avenue has a textured façade, composed of charcoal and gray brick detailed with elegantly tailored hand-cast ornamentation, which evokes an intended timelessness with a contemporary lens.

“It was important to us to design a building that contributed, in a 21st century way, to the context of the neighborhood,” explained Deborah Berke, Dean of the Yale School of Architecture and long-time East End resident. “The façade materials are substantial and grounded, textured and rooted in quality, and designed to embrace the outdoors.”

Mitchell Hochberg, President of Lightstone, added, “With her intimate understanding of the neighborhood, she and her team have designed a building with exceptional details and the highest level of finishes that harnesses the tranquil and welcoming feel of East End Avenue.”

The amenities offer both convenience and luxury, while extending the meaning of home. Whether walking through signature bronze filigree entry doors on East End Avenue or the marble paneled porte-cochere for a discreet, covered vehicular entrance, residents are greeted by an intimate and welcoming lobby with a 24-hour doorman-concierge. Off the lobby is the double-height Parlor Lounge with a wet bar, dramatic chandelier, and sculptural marble staircase with bronze cladding. The second-floor suite of amenities includes: a well-appointed library, a sophisticated game room, a gourmet catering kitchen for entertaining, and a fully equipped state-of-the-art fitness center. Each home is equipped with Juliet balconies and private terraces, inviting effortless continuity between indoor and outdoor living, and oversized casement windows with sweeping views of the East River and city skyline.
