The Gotham Organization has revealed new renderings of the amenity spaces at The Suffolk, a 378-unit residential tower at 55 Suffolk Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Dattner Architects and JG Neukomm Architecture, the 30-story tower comprises 330,000 square feet and is a major component of the developer’s Broome Street Development.
The Suffolk’s outdoor amenity spaces include a rooftop pool deck and an outdoor terrace with lounge seating, fire pits, and barbecue grills. Tenants also have access to a full-floor indoor amenity suite with coworking spaces, conference rooms, a resident lounge, and a chef’s kitchen. There is also a fitness club and yoga studio, a package room, resident storage, a bike room, laundry facilities, and an on-site personal concierge.
“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,” said David Picket, president at Gotham Organization. “Like all of our buildings, The Suffolk serves as both an homage to the neighborhood and a modern oasis for our future tenants.”
The mix of units includes stand-sized studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, in addition to three floors of micro-units. The micro-units are the latest to debut under Abode by Gotham, a new housing concept from the developer conceived in response to shifting tenant preferences and changing market conditions. Each will measure between 315 to 350 square feet and 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 own dedicated lounge, chef’s kitchen, tenant storage, and laundry facilities.
Each traditional unit features chrome appliances, an in-unit washer/dryer, quartz countertops and bathrooms, and wood grain flooring.
“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,” said Rem Garavito Bruhn, AIA, associate at Dattner Architects. “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 Suffolk is expected to debut this spring. When complete, the entire Broome Street Development will include two mixed-use buildings and create 493 new rental units, a new 40,000-square-foot community facility for the Chinese-American Planning Council, a 4,000-square-foot cultural heritage center for Beth Hamedrash Hagodol, and 18,000 square feet of retail space.
