Extell is showing off a one-acre garden at its One Manhattan Square luxury apartment tower in its latest move to push sales.
In May, the developer launched a COVID sales discount campaign at the 800 ft. tower on the Lower East Side.
Today, the company began pitching what it’s calling “New York City’s largest private gardens” at the property where apartments start at $1.2 million.
“Especially given today’s environment, outdoor spaces have become a welcome retreat for our residents,” said Alan Oppenheimer of Extell Development Company. “These spaces were designed to serve as a private oasis within our community so that residents can enjoy their own private natural surroundings within the city.”
Designed by West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architecture, the Dutch landscape firm responsible for the Hills at Governor’s Island, the One Manhattan Square gardens are situated on a gradually inclining landscape. It includes topiary gardens and shrub clusters, courtyards and relaxation spaces.
The space offers both “active and peaceful” spaces surrounded by trees, plants, lawns and flowers. They include outdoor grilling and dining areas, ping-pong tables, putting green, fire pits, relaxation lawns, social courtyards, a tea pavilion, stargazing observatory with telescopes, children’s playground, covered dog run, and an adult treehouse on stilts.
Extell said it was “pleased” with sales at the 815-unit development. According to Streeteasy, nine apartments have been sold at the tower for a combined $13.5 million since June.
