Property Description

Residence 15C is a corner 2 bed, 2 bath home that showcases unparalleled Southern and Western views of the iconic Manhattan skyline, including the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower. This gracious, split layout offers an abundance of natural light welcomed through its walls of floor-to-ceiling windows.

VU's light and airy interiors are carefully crafted by renowned interior designer Paris Forino to complement soaring ceilings and panoramic city and East River views. Living spaces in soothing neutral tones with handsome accents create a sophisticated aesthetic. Kitchens at VU imbue a feeling of comfort and convenience. Appointed in a sophisticated and light palette of natural materials such as marble, bleached oak, and white lacquer, outfitted with Miele appliances, they are a chef's dream. Spacious primary bathrooms feel like a tranquil spa getaway with walls clad in oversized soft white marble tiles and an intricate mosaic floor pattern comprising of three different marbles. Sinks and showers are complimented by The Grace Collection, Paris Forino's custom line of faucets and fixtures for Waterworks in polished chrome, produced exclusively for VU New York.

Rising from the center of four of Manhattan's most dynamic neighborhoods-NoMad, Flatiron, Gramercy, and Kips Bay-VU offers a fresh perspective in a supremely convenient setting. The East River Greenway is easily accessible for morning runs and bike rides, whether you are heading Uptown or Downtown. Citi Bike stations dot the neighborhood and the seven subway lines nearby to make any morning commute convenient. The East Side location and its proximity to the Midtown Tunnel makes LaGuardia and JFK airports remarkably accessible.

Designed by SLCE architects, the facade radiates a refined palette of oyster white and warm bronze detailing, a modern compliment to the historically rich neighborhoods that surround it. At 36 stories, the tower punctuates the city skyline and stands tall overlooking Manhattan's East Side. The architecture celebrates New Age Modernism, a design approach that emphasizes a contemporary aesthetic with clean lines, bronze embellishments, and sculpted chevron details. Oversized windows put the city on full display, and special attention was put into creating residences that maximize natural light wherever possible.

With a full floor of vitality and entertaining amenities, VU provides residents with a variety of offerings that are designed to enhance the quality of everyday living. From the fitness center to the screening room, to the lounge and the pantry, Paris Forino designed each space with thoughtful intention toward how New Yorkers live today. The beauty of VU's attended lobby resides in the subtle refinements of European white oak paneling paired with honed Palladium travertine floors. High up on the 36th floor sits the rooftop terrace, where lush greenery and plush furniture invite you to take in unrivaled city views.

Kips Bay | Manhattan

Quick Profile

If you take a walk through Kips Bay, which is loosely defined as the area between 23rd street and 34th street and the East River to almost Lexington, you’ll quickly learn it's a hodgepodge of sorts and not as well defined as other neighborhoods in New York City. Some New Yorkers say Kips Bay has an identity crisis because 1st, 2nd, and 3rd avenues are distinctly different from one another as you traverse them. Despite the perceived lack of neighborhood vibe there are others that appreciate its affordability and convenience.  

First Avenue is dominated by hospitals and hospital buildings such as NYU Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital to name a few. Second Avenue is a mosaic of convenience stores, fast food joints and nondescript brick buildings. Third Avenue is saturated with small bars and gastropubs and the twenty somethings that patronize them. 

No judgement against Kips Bay here. It’s a great neighborhood that is just as much a part of New York City as any other neighborhood. Kips Bay It’s bordered by Murray Hill to the North, Stuyvesant Town and Gramercy Park to the South, and Rose Hill to the West. The neighborhood is partly defined by newer high-rise apartments, brick rowhouses, and former tenement buildings.
