Kirsten Jordan and The Kirsten Jordan Team at Douglas Elliman are thrilled to introduce La Botanica, a new boutique residence inspired by the gardens of the East Village. Located at 619 East 6th Street, and fittingly named for its location overlooking the 6BC Botanical Garden and around the corner from Tompkins Square Park, the DXA Studio-designed condominium offers just five bespoke homes that come to life in the spirit of biophilia. Sales launch today, with prices starting at $2,950,000.
“We’re excited to bring to market the five turn-key homes at La Botanica, which are well priced, well made and uniquely aligned with the current collective consciousness in New York,” said Kirsten Jordan, top-producing real estate advisor and founder of the Kirsten Jordan Team at Douglas Elliman, exclusive sales agent for La Botanica. “Buyers want a luxury experience with beautiful interiors, quality construction, low carrying costs, and a great location that is both peaceful and energizing. La Botanica is all of that and more.”
A new quintessential residence for the East Village, the eight-story building is clad in Danish Petersen Brick and features five generously sized homes with two-, three- and four-bedrooms and one-of-a-kind layouts. New York City-based architecture firm DXA Studio designed La Botanica in the biophilic philosophy that brings the outdoors inside, capturing the neighborhood’s tradition of community gardens with a building that is designed to frame views to the 6BC Botanical Garden across the street, while also maximizing light, air and intimate streetscape views. The architecture was also designed to exceed New York City’s energy code requirements for thermal envelope performance.
Each residence has expansive picture windows and at least one private outdoor space, including the 2,535-square-foot penthouse, which features a 1,251-square-foot terrace and multiple balconies, in addition to interior spaces with views of the 6BC Botanical Garden across the street. Built with an emphasis on quality and craft, each La Botanica residence has a distinct identity with its own unique palette of finishes, from natural wood and stone to custom built-ins.
“La Botanica is a collection of private homes that each feels like its own hidden oasis. While the simple exterior façade is meant to be an understated, yet refined and hand-crafted street presence, the interiors completely open up in an unexpected and dramatic way to embrace the secret botanical garden across the street, which is the essence of La Botanica,” said Wayne Norbeck of DXA Studio, which designed the architecture and interiors.
The building’s elegant, minimalist lobby is detailed with patinated steel sheathing walls. A video intercom system provides an easy and seamless experience while the virtual doorman optimizes privacy and efficiency for the condominium. Additional features include a storage room and a bike room. Tucked on 6th Street between Avenue B and C, residents of La Botanica will have the best of Downtown’s most eclectic neighborhood at their fingertips, including a diverse array of restaurants, shopping and entertainment offerings. In addition to the botanic garden across the street and Tompkins Square Park around the corner, nearby green spaces include El Jardin del Paraiso on East 5th Street, Sage Garden on East 4th Street and Miracle Garden on East 3rd Street.
Homes at La Botanica range from $2,950,000 for a two-bedroom to $6,995,000 for the three-bedroom penthouse with a 1,251-square-foot private terrace. For more information, please visit https://kirstenjordanteam.com/.
