Property Description

The Marx, a new development boutique condominium, is perfectly situated in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a neighborhood famed for some of the city’s most upscale restaurants, shopping, and cultural institutions, and Just a few blocks from both Central Park and Carl Schurz Park. The Marx offers a tranquil retreat from city life, while the convenient proximity of the Second Avenue subway line allows for quick connection to the rest of what this great island has to offer.

Designed by Isaac & Stern Architects to respect the fabric of the community while setting a new standard for materiality and fenestration, The Marx is both subtle in volume yet striking in beauty. The facade is comprised of ebonized metal and oversized casement style windows, allowing for the residences to be bright and airy, modern, but with a nod to the aesthetics of the Art Deco period. Each space features a collection of carefully curated finishes and thoughtful layouts, swathed in tones of cloud white and neutrals. From the white oak flooring to the porcelain and stainless-steel accents, no detail has been spared. Scandinavian inspired kitchens come fully appointed with design-forward appliances from brands such as Bosch, Asko, Kohler, and Viking. The luxurious bathrooms feature Kohler fixtures and custom teak millwork. 24hr virtual doorman, bicycle storage, individual storage units, dedicated wood lined package niches, and crowning The Marx is a large communal roof deck with city views and gas BBQ; these just a few of the thoughtful amenities available in this boutique lifestyle residence.

The Marx’s 6 loftlike full floor and duplex residences all feature direct keyed elevator access and offer gracious layouts with floor to ceiling windows, 36” dual fuel Viking ranges and Kohler soaking tubs and come pre-wired for speakers and low-voltage home automation systems. Crowning The Marx is a stunning PH with private roof terrace, perfect for hosting intimate nights under the stars. The PH is comprised of 1,734 interior square feet and 600 exterior square feet, with 3 generously sized bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a laundry room. The open kitchen allows aspiring chefs to prepare meals while enjoying the light and views through the living room’s oversized floor to ceiling windows. The living room, already well proportioned, can be further enlarged by removing the wall between the living room and 3rd bedroom. The master suite is a private oasis with dressing room, walk-in closet, private balcony, and oversized master bath, one could be forgiven for never wanting to leave.

Quick Profile

Exuding a cosmopolitan, refined air that is reminiscent of Paris or other European cities, the Upper East Side (the UES, to local cognoscenti) has a reputation as being a bastion of wealth and privilege. Even though it was built by American “royalty” families like the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Kennedys, Carnegies and Rockefellers, whose elaborate mansions once anchored Fifth Avenue, there are affordable housing options throughout the neighborhood. The further east you move, away from Central Park and the more commercial avenues, the more likely you are to find quiet, tree-lined streets with historic townhouses and brownstones. Keep your eye out for reasonably priced apartments in pre-war low-rise and even a few high-rise buildings.

With abundant, beautifully landscaped green spaces, including the oasis of Central Park acting like a backyard, the area is quiet and lushly green. You can relax and unwind in John Jay Park, Carl Schurz Park or take a stroll along the East River Promenade. The whole neighborhood seems isolated from the workaday chaos of the city at large. Add to that the history of the neighborhood and the abundance of cultural institutions, and you have a uniquely welcoming neighborhood.

Known for its abundance of high-end retail shopping, especially on Madison Avenue, the Upper East Side is host to the Barneys New York flagship department store. Here you can find upscale goods, fashion and home decor items. You will also find the edgy runway-inspired Alexander McQueen collections. If you are dying to treat your feet to red-soled opulence, be sure to visit the Christian Louboutin boutique. These are only a small sampling of this high-end shopper’s paradise that features everything from designer boutiques that offer the ultimate in haute couture to resale shops where you can find last season’s best on sale at hefty discounts .

There are many unique dining experiences, from fine dining to the casual bite-on-the-go, awaiting you in the UES. Sushi is going through a renaissance in the city, and the best omakase-style sushi can be found at Sasabune on E 73rd Street. Omakase sushi means that you leave the choice of ingredients, preparation method and presentation to the chef. Elegant French cuisine can be experienced at JoJo, E 64th Street, housed in gorgeous townhouse. Just for fun, visit the Lexington Candy Shop on Lexington Avenue, to get a taste of an old-fashioned soda fountain.
