The Gotham Organization Reveals the First Look at New Luxury Project, The Suffolk, in the Lower East Side

The Gotham Organization today revealed the first look at its newest luxury rental development, The Suffolk. Located at 55 Suffolk in the Lower East Side, the 30-story tower includes 378 residences with 330,000 square feet of mixed-use space and is scheduled to open in Spring 2023. 

In addition to the traditional units, The Suffolk will have three dedicated floors of micro-units. The micro-units are being developed by Gotham under a new concept called Abode by Gotham. Each Abode by Gotham unit will measure between 315 to 350 square feet and will feature a built-in murphy bed, sofa and storage. Residents of Abode by Gotham residences will have access to all amenities within the building under a club membership, as well as their very own dedicated lounge, chef’s kitchen, tenant storage and laundry facilities. 

Located in the heart of the Lower East Side at Broome and Suffolk, The Suffolk luxury residences are thoughtfully designed by Dattner Architects and JG Neukomm Architecture, featuring a mix of Abode by Gotham units, studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences. Each traditional unit is appointed with a top-of-the-line suite of appliances in polished chrome including a built-in refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and an in-unit washer/dryer, as well as a custom vanity and frameless mirror with sophisticated gray tweed paneling. The bathroom and kitchen countertops are wrapped in a luxurious pearl river quartz. As a fresh take on the vintage Lower East Side aesthetic, the bathroom flooring is appointed with hexagonal tiles in muted colors of dust blue and pearl white, which nicely contrasts with the complementary wood grain flooring throughout the unit. All elements combined offer residents a coveted luxury lifestyle in downtown Manhattan.

“We set out to design a building that would offer the best of modern living while embracing the rich history and varied culture of the Lower East Side. Like all of our buildings, The Suffolk serves as both an homage to the neighborhood and a modern oasis for our future tenants,” said David Picket, President at Gotham Organization. 

“As New York City continues to grow and attract new residents and businesses, there is an imminent need for increased residential options,” said Bryan Kelly, President of Development at Gotham Organization. “We are proud to bring The Suffolk to the marketplace which will complement the long-existing culture of the Lower East Side.” 

Designed by Dattner Architects and JG Neukomm Architecture, The Suffolk’s upscale indoor and outdoor amenity spaces are designed to reflect the vibrant culture and ethos of the Lower East Side neighborhood, a historic creative hub for artists and professionals. Residents will enjoy a rooftop pool and sundeck, an outdoor terrace with lounge seating, fire pits and barbeques; a full-floor amenity suite with co-working spaces and conference rooms, a dedicated resident lounge and chef’s kitchen; and a state-of-the-art fitness club and yoga studio to foster healthy living and community engagement among residents. Additional services offered include a 24-hour staffed lobby, personal concierge, a package room, resident storage, bike room and laundry facilities.

“Through the contrast of materials, a mix of reclaimed and new furniture, objects and art, and detailing that is layered and at times even joyfully disjointed, The Suffolk blurs the lines of old and new, and is refined in the aloofness it projects,” said Jean-Gabriel Neukomm of JG Neukomm Architecture. “It is the rich cultural sensibility of the Lower East Side that makes people yearn to be there, and this project greatly reflects that. The Suffolk is deeply rooted in that history, and modestly adds another link to the human chain, one that respects the past but also seeks an engaged future. We are excited to bring this project to the marketplace this Spring.”

“We are proud to be a part of this project which is a key piece in the rebirth of this area of the Lower East Side. The Suffolk building provides 378 new homes of needed neighborhood housing. Bright and beautiful apartments, with views of lower Manhattan and the East River Bridges, are complemented by ample amenity spaces, landscaped terraces, and small-scale retail along Broome Street which will help activate this new commercial thoroughfare, benefiting the entire neighborhood. The design is inspired by the neighborhood’s historic fabric: the brick façade and elegant metal detailing makes a connection to the traditional masonry buildings and their characteristic fire escapes that exemplify the neighborhood. Sustainability is a guiding feature of Dattner Architects’ work; this building substantially exceeds energy code standards, demonstrating ours and Gotham’s commitment to making New York City a more environmentally sustainable place,” said Rem Garavito Bruhn, AIA, Associate at Dattner Architects.

The Suffolk is part of Gotham’s Broome Street Development, a comprehensive master plan comprising two mixed-use buildings that upon completion will deliver 493 new rental units, expansive indoor and outdoor amenities, a new 40,000-square-foot community facility for the Chinese-American Planning Council and 4,000-square-foot cultural heritage center for Beth Hamedrash Hagodol, and 18,000 square feet of retail space. 

The Suffolk is conveniently located near Seward Park, the F, M, J and Z subway lines, the B39 and M14A-SBS bus lines and a host of top retail, restaurant and entertainment venues in the Lower East Side.
