“Optimum Asset Management is excited to announce the launch of sales at 222 E.

Located on the corner of East Broadway and Clinton Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, 222 E. Broadway comprises a new ground up 28-story luxury tower and renovated 11-story landmarked loft building. Inspired by the neighborhood, SLCE Architects, together with the New York-based S4 Architecture, designed 222 E. Broadway to fit seamlessly into its historic surroundings on the Lower East Side. The building’s exterior features a variety of scale, fenestration, and proportion that sets it apart from other modern facades and residential developments.

Ranging from studio to four-bedroom residences, 222 E. Broadway offers interiors of classic elegance and understated luxury. The building’s luminous Tower homes boast modern yet timeless details including open floor layouts, 7” white oak hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe each home in natural light. Each residence also features a graciously proportioned kitchen with custom fluted glass cabinetry, Italian Greystone marble countertops, and top of the line Miele appliances. Baths are accessorized with elevated details such as bespoke bronze walnut vanities with Montblanc vanity countertops, custom Waterworks fixtures, and subtle stonework throughout. In addition to spectacular views of Midtown and the Lower Manhattan skyline, as well as Brooklyn and the East River, select homes feature spacious, walk-out private terraces.

Built within the bones of the landmarked art deco Bialystoker building, 222 E. Broadway’s Lofts feature 10-foot ceilings, white oak herringbone floors, and stunning custom finishes. In addition, each residence boasts an expansive kitchen with richly patterned Calacatta counters and backsplashes, warm walnut and fluted glass upper cabinetry with spruce green interiors, and a Miele and Sub-Zero suite of appliances that add both function and beauty to the spaces. Primary baths feature elegant Calacatta marble, custom Waterworks fixtures accented with balsam green enamel, and custom lighting fixtures by Paris Forino.
