255 East 74th Street
Designed by Hugh Hardy, the founding partner of H3 Collaboration Architecture, and interior by Coffinier Ku Design, 255 East 74th Street broke with conventional wisdom by offering a luxury condominium community predominantly comprised of three- and four-bedroom residences.
Located just west of Second Avenue, 255 East 74th Street was positioned to offer prime access to the best of the Upper East Side at a compelling price point. From the start, the largest floor plans were designed with intention to serve residents whose children or lifestyle required adaptable space. Common areas placed next to bedrooms are equally ideal as play rooms or home offices, enabling residents to respond to changing needs over time.
255 East 74th Street was ready for closings beginning in the fall of 2008, around the time of the collapse of Lehman Brothers. In a period when many buyers elected to delay or walk away from contracts, the building achieved a high percentage of closings, which is attributed to its distinctive product and unit mix.
