Live out your city dreams with these spectacular residences.
Have you ever wanted a lush oasis hundreds of feet in the air? Or wanted to host a lavish party with a view of the Manhattan skyline? You can do both of those now in these innovative model residences designed by Anna Karlin in the One Manhattan Square tower on New York City’s Lower East Side. Karlin, who is based in the neighborhood herself, is a multifaceted designer and has worked on everything from glassware and lighting to fine jewelry and interiors.
Karlin says her 10 “characters,” which include such archetypes as “The Glamorous Couple,” “The Urban Gardener,” and “The Retail Queen,” are based on people we all have in our lives. “One Manhattan Square is a vertical village in itself,” she says. “So we developed these distinct characters that would populate it. They are based on people we all have in our lives: the fabulous single man with epic taste, the design student with a well-curated eye, and the couple whose children have finally left home, so they can have a beautiful pied-à-terre.”
And outside of the gorgeous model homes, the building includes top-of-the-line amenities, like a full basketball court, a two-lane bowling alley, a spa with a plunge pool, and cigar and wine rooms. Best of all, there are unparalleled views in every direction over Lower Manhattan. “There is something so special about being able to see the edge of our magic island and onwards to the sea,” Karlin says.
One-, two-, and three-bedroom residences available now at onemanhattansquare.com.
I am Q: It is amazing to me the vast number of people who have nothing productive to do with their lives and find it necessary to attend rally after rally and protest after protest. Like children who act and say things entirely based on their emotions, because well... It feels good. Grown adults take responsibility, establish their goals and pursue those dreams.
