12 beautiful apartments in an ideal location in the heart of the village, Eighty East Tenth is a wonderful collaboration between Parametric Development Group (PDG) and Nava Architecture. Rising just 10 stories, the building has all the benefits of a compact community – but one where SoHo and Union Square are just steps away. For the luxury family lifestyle, Eight East Tenth is hard to look past.
Designed and executed by Nava Architecture, who specializes in both design and delivery of major construction projects, Eight East Tenth is truly revolutionary. The goal of PDG and Nava was to create a modern condominium that provided all the luxury and class that exclusive residents demand in a historic, vibrant part of the city.
With that in mind, Nava designed a building that is eclectic and modern. The facade is slightly textured and beautifully curved to create depth to the metal. The dots and curved facades also pay homage to the street’s past as the epicenter of the antique book trade; the building itself is the physical manifestation of the written word.
Every single one of the 12 residences has been crafted with the utmost care and attention. Each condo has 10-foot ceilings, wide plank oak flooring, triple glazed windows to block out noise, cold, and heat, and a state of the art multi-zone heating/cooling systems. Each unit comes with an Electrolux washer/dryer.
The living rooms are well-proportioned rooms with plenty of natural tones and brass fixtures. The floor to ceiling windows allow in plenty of light, and the white walls mean the living room is fresh and bright all day long. Some units also have marble fireplaces for those cold winter nights.
The kitchens are stocked with luxury finishes, including custom Dada cabinetry from Italy by the Molteni Group, finished in oak, and Calacatta marble waterfall islands and backsplashes. Recessed lighting and Miele appliances, gas cooktops, and conventional and speed ovens provide the function to match the form. Dornbracht fixtures and a Blanco sink round out the fixtures.
The bedroom features floor to ceiling windows and Chevron-patterned, French style oak flooring for a textured yet refined finish. Depending on the unit, the windows either overlook the tree-lined street or the private sculpture garden.
Of course, the most opulent room in the apartment is the master bath. Terrazzo floors, a freestanding Blu-Stone tub, and a glass-enclosed shower create the perfect circumstances to relax and unwind. The shower is finished with Calacatta marble slab tiles, and the whole room is fitted with Dornbracht fixtures. In units with a secondary bathroom, it’s more of the same, but with a Duravit and Laufen vanity, and porcelain tiles throughout.
The powder rooms are Statuario marble floors with custom Dada vanities by the Molteni Group complete with an integrated sink.
Amenities include an attended lobby and part-time doorman, bike storage, and a landscaped rooftop terrace. There’s also private additional storage for each unit. And then there’s the lobby.
The lobby has been expertly designed to act as a decompression zone between the hectic world outside and the quiet oasis of the units inside. Featuring an interior garden with artwork by Brooklyn artist John Clement, natural materials soften the area and poured terrazzo flooring add a touch of sophistication. The lobby is completed by the concierge desk, finished with leather detailing, hardwood paneling, and floor to ceiling windows that let in plenty of light.
Of the 12 units, there are currently four currently available.
One bed, 1.5 bath unit on the second floor, east side of the building with windows facing the street from the great room and internally from the master bedroom. It includes 924 square feet and is on the market for $1.95 million. It’s the only one-bedroom currently available, and one of only four total.
3W is a 3-bed, 2.5 bath corner unit. With 1,831 square feet, it’s perfect for families looking for a condo with a little more room. Its final price is $4.15 million. It’s one of four units like this.
4W is the same layout and design specs as 3W, but is one floor higher, providing better views and a quieter home. That extra distance turns a final price tag of $4.3 million.
Residence 6 is a full-floor unit with its own elevator access. It has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths and runs a cool $7.85 million. It’s also one of the only units with a private terrace. The final square footage comes in at 3,304 square feet with an additional 83 square feet of outdoor space. It’s one of two units like this.
Eighty East Tenth sits at the cultural core of New York City. Right at the intersection of East Village and West Village, and around the corner from Union Square, it’s always been a cultural mecca. Long before Eighty East Tenth was there the street was called Book Row for all the antique booksellers who set up shop.
Today, you’re more likely to find the perfect flat white in one of the dozens of cafes then an antique bookseller, but the neighborhood’s appreciation of art has never wavered. Theatres, art galleries, and art schools are clustered around, rubbing shoulders with great restaurants, beautiful parks, and some of the best schools in the city.
Eighty East Tenth might not be perfect, but it’s not far off. A beautiful modern building with historic roots, Eighty East Tenth offers the dynamic urban lifestyle for the 12 lucky residents who can snag a spot.
