● SIMON BARON DEVELOPMENT
Sales launch at Carnegie Hill condo
Simon Baron Development has launched sales at 12 East 88th Street.
Offering 24 condos, the 13-story, residential conversion was originally designed by Rosario Candela.
“12 East 88th Street is a storybook address on the Upper East Side with architectural significance,” said Jonathan Simon, founder, chairman, and CEO of Simon Baron.
“In a neighborhood that is occupied with all co-ops, this is the first condominium offering in Carnegie Hill in many years, which makes it extremely special.
“What’s more, it’s a Candela building reinterpreted by Wolf — one master reimagining another — interweaves the old and new.”
With interiors by Wolf and architecture by Kinlin Rutherfurd Architects, 12 East 88th offers two- to five-bedroom homes and two multi-story townhouses with a private entrance.
Amenities include a garden courtyard, residents’ lounge, playroom, and fitness center.
With sales and marketing being handled by The Marketing Directors, pricing ranges from $3.05 million for a two-bedroom to $22 million for a five-bedroom. Occupancy is slated for 2016.
