NYC-based real estate development firm Anbau, together with Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, today announced the launch of sales at Flatiron House, a new luxury condominium located at 39 West 23rd Street. With architecture and interiors by COOKFOX Architects, a leader in biophilic design, the development comprises two distinct buildings connected by a shared interior garden with a total of 44 residences. The Tower features 37 one-to four-bedroom residences with a separate entrance on 23rd Street, while the Loft offers a collection of seven one- to five-bedroom residences and an entrance on 24th Street, many of which are full-floors with direct elevator entry.
Flatiron House utilizes a number of guiding principles that promote health, wellbeing, and indoor-outdoor living. Sitting at the center of both structures is the lush garden, which provides a verdant focal point and a tranquil outdoor gathering space landscaped with native flowering plants and trees.
Many residences offer Juliet balconies and terraces that feature a unique, decorative railing design and a self-watering irrigation system, allowing plants to bloom and grow through the balconies’ latticework. Designed in collaboration with Brooklyn based landscape architect Future Green Studio, plant species include Periwinkle, Thyme, Oregano, Lavender, alpine strawberries, and lowbush blueberries.
“We worked closely with COOKFOX Architects to ensure the residences at Flatiron House featured spacious floor plans with a direct connection to the outdoors and nature. Our collaboration resulted in a wide array of serene landscaped spaces that are both an extension of the home and a visual amenity as well” said Stephen Glascock, Chairman of Anbau.
“Flatiron House allows us to rethink how people interact with urban buildings and nature. We wanted to balance contemporary design with hallmarks that speak to the distinctive character of the nearby landmarked buildings, while also promoting wellness through biophilic and sustainable design,” explained Rick Cook, Founding Partner of COOKFOX Architects.
Each residence features lofty ceilings, wide-plank oak floors, custom millwork, and floor-to-ceiling windows that fill residences with abundant light and frame views of cast iron landmarks, the Empire State Building, The Clocktower, the Flatiron Building, and beyond. Residents enter their homes through an American Walnut residential entrance door with Hamilton Sinkler hardware in an antique bronze finish. All residences include custom kitchens featuring a suite of Gaggenau and Thermador appliances, sleek Dornbracht fixtures, and generous storage spaces. Kitchens also feature timeless rift oak and white lacquer cabinetry accented with textural ribbed glass and bronze metal hardware. Primary bathrooms are outfitted with Arabescato marble and walnut vanities against a backdrop of Greek Naxos marble and also feature mosaic marble flooring and cast iron tubs. Select residences feature expansive terraces and offer 360-degree views sweeping from Midtown to the expanse of Downtown Manhattan.
Residents will have access to the COOKFOX-designed amenity spaces surrounding The Garden, which provides a verdant focal point and a tranquil gathering space landscaped with native flowering plants and trees. Amenities including a 24/7 attended lobby featuring dramatic full-height bronzed metal doors and a patterned canopy, clad in American Walnut and handsome limestone; a second level wellness suite includes The Gym with a yoga and stretching studio and adjoining landscaped terrace; The Game Room featuring billiards, a film screen, and space for private dining and entertainment; and The Lounge which offers a space for intimate gatherings. Onsite parking and storage are available for purchase, and residents will also have access to bicycle storage and a commercial size laundry room for oversized items.
Flatiron House is nearing completion, with move-ins likely later this year.
