Florida-based Dart Interests has launched sales at its New York City apartment development, The Leyton, at 1059 Third Avenue on the Upper East Side.
Dart – a plastics conglomerate whose holdings include the famous Solo cup – tapped Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing to sell the 38 one- to four-bedroom units, delivering Fall 2021.
And the brokerage believes the launch is coming on the cusp of Manhattan’s recovery from the brunt of the coronavirus impact.
“Manhattan new development sales increased 32 percent quarter over quarter to end 2020,” said Robin Schneiderman, managing director of Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing.
“Specifically, Upper East Side buyers are looking for larger homes with privacy and outdoor space. Above the 24th floor, The Leyton offers 10 full-floors and one Penthouse Duplex all with large outdoor spaces and unobstructed views of Central Park.”
Dart picked up the former Art & Design Building in 2012 for what was then a record $31.5 million and later partnered with Orlando-based Real Estate Inverlad to tear down the official building and build the new boutique luxury condo.
The JV hired former Rafael Viñoly architect, Manuel Glas to design the project and assembled a team that includes Frampton Co, responsible for the compositions of the private residences and Champalimaud Design, for amenity spaces and wellness.
As well as the ten full-floor homes and one duplex penthouse, the Leyton offers one-to-four bedrooms at prices ranging from $2.1 to $11.6 million.
A 24th floor Brandy Room includes a solarium; living room with a chalet fireplace, sun terrace and grille, dining room and dining terrace. Residents also have access to a fitness center and ‘Paw Spa’ with washing facilities and a grooming table; temperature-regulated, secured private storage, bicycle storage and dedicated mail and package rooms.
