Sales have launched for the 43 condominium units at Hillrose28, developed by Forkosh Development in Rose Hill, Manhattan. The limestone-clad 20-story residential building at 181 E 28th Street is designed by C3D Architecture and yields 66,125 square feet of space. Residences of the almost 200-foot-tall structure are designed by Lemay + Escobar D.P.C. and marketed by Corcoran Sunshine.
Rising approximately 200 feet on the corner of 28th Street and 3rd Avenue, the tower will offer residents abundant natural daylight and great views of the city’s skyline. The exterior is wrapped in Portuguese limestone with large casement windows.
“We are so proud of all of the hard work that has gone into Hillrose 28. The building is already proving to be popular with buyers and will be a valuable asset to the further establishment of the Rose Hill neighborhood,” said Alex Forkosh, founder of Forkosh Development.
Residences range from studios to four-bedrooms with three full-floor penthouses on the top floors. More than half the units have private outdoor space with either balconies and terraces. Finishings include wide-plank white oak flooring throughout, open-plan kitchens with Scavolini oak cabinets, marble slab countertops, and Bosch appliances, energy-efficient LED lights, and a state-of-the-art HVAC and ventilation system. Bathrooms are furnished with Italian marble, polished nickel hardware, and Toto bathtubs and commodes.
“Given the building is covered in a beautiful Portuguese limestone that pays homage to the neighboring Empire State Building, we immediately knew that creating a contemporary living experience that still connects to the classic New York apartments from the pre-war era was our goal on this project,” said Andres Escobar, partner and design principal at Lemay + Escobar. “We were very fortunate to work with Forkosh in making this goal a reality. Hillrose 28 is truly a one-of-a-kind living experience in New York City.”
Amenities include a fully equipped 2,000-square-foot landscaped roof terrace, a 24-hour duplex gym, commercial grade laundry facilities, bike storage, and a residents’ lounge with a fireplace, co-working table, and Scavolini kitchen with a wet bar.
The closest subway is the 6 train at the 28th Street station on Park Avenue South. The N, R, and W trains are also nearby at the 28rd Street station north of Madison Square Park along Broadway. Hillrose 28 is close to a variety of dining, shopping, and entertainment options in bordering neighborhoods NoMad, Murray Hill, and Gramercy.
Prices for the condominium units range from =under $1 million to over nine million for a four-bedroom full-floor penthouse. Occupancy is anticipated for spring 2021.
