We are proud to announce the development of 34 Leonard Street, a one-of-a-kind luxury property with an innovative design in a historic and exciting neighborhood
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 14, 2008
Redefining luxury residential living in Manhattan's storied TriBeCa neighborhood, 34 Leonard Street is a sophisticated cooperative development featuring 16 limited edition, private loft-style homes with expansive open layouts, 10-foot high ceilings and walls of windows offering urban and park views. Developed by R Squared Real Estate Partners, 34 Leonard merges traditional loft features of spaciousness and elegance with modern amenities, creating the ideal canvas for discerning home buyers.
Designed by the highly-respected, historically sensitive architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle, the new development integrates vintage TriBeCa trademarks like industrial-scale windows, exposed materials and fluid, flexible spaces. The 16 residences consist of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes ranging from 1,541 square feet to 2,792 square feet, as well as a dramatic 3,086-square-foot penthouse residence with a 2,215-square-foot wrap-around terrace.
"We are proud to announce the development of 34 Leonard Street, a one-of-a-kind luxury property with an innovative design in a historic and exciting neighborhood," said Mitchell Rechler, Principal of R Squared. "34 Leonard is a great addition to TriBeCa, offering discerning buyers one of the most compelling residential opportunities currently on the market and featuring exceptional space fitting a number of unique lifestyles."
34 Leonard further extends TriBeCa's history of design originality by introducing renowned installation artist Jennifer Steinkamp's original creation to the building, a three-dimensional visual illusion of trees that envelops the lobby in a sensory experience that is entirely unique. Translucent glass with embedded leaves, sculptured wood benches and artisan crafted limestone walls complete the aesthetic of organic luxury.
What sets 34 Leonard Street farther apart from any other luxury residential community in the City is that it was specifically designed with layouts to accommodate art collections. Furthermore, art expert Carol Dorksy can be made available to offer her insight to potential buyers interested in starting or expanding their art collections. As one of New York's elite art consultants, Ms. Dorsky sits on the board of White Columns, a not-for-profit art gallery in Manhattan.
Homeowners will experience luxury living in every aspect of 34 Leonard, from the rich walnut wood flooring used throughout to the solid core doors and designer hardware. Gourmet kitchens, designed by Poggenpohl, feature Imperial Danby marble countertops, along with Viking and Subzero stainless steel appliances and quality Grohe faucets. Master baths are clad in Oyster Beige limestone, featuring a walnut-stained floating vanity, dual sinks and oversized soaking tub, glass enclosed shower, and Watermark fixtures and fittings.
Secondary baths feature Kohler vanity with Imperial Danby marble counter and floor, while the powder rooms, with their unique Ann Sacks stone mosaic floors and Kohler Fireclay pedestal sinks, provide a further touch of luxury.
Among the many distinguishing amenities and services offered at 34 Leonard are: a hand-crafted, climate-controlled wine cellar individually housing owners' private collections (up to 300 bottles) in filigreed cabinets; a grill and bar/prep area on the roof deck for entertaining; a private sunbathing area with outdoor shower; and a private pet spa. A state-of-the-art fitness center; private storage; and a 24/7 doorman, complete the amenities package.
