One of the globe’s most dynamic cities—and the cultural, financial and social heart of the United States—New York City has long been one of the most sought-after residences for the wealthy, aspirant and creative. But living within the New York City area relegates most people to high-rise living—complete with heady views and uber-sophisticated design options that beckon city lovers everywhere. Luckily, those searching for New York high-rise new homes in and around the city will find plenty of options—and plenty of spectacular views to go along with them.
For those in love with the New York City skyline, the Toll Brothers City Living division brings buyers Northside Piers—a duet of luxury high-rises in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, just across the East River from Manhattan. These 1-4 bedroom condos offer spectacular floor-to-ceiling views of the dramatic Manhattan skyline, and include a selection of premier designer finishes and materials inside, completing the aura of ultra-sophistication. Building One of this development is already sold out, and only a few units in Building Two remain. Prices at this luxury community begin in the high $700s and range up over $2 million.
On the other side of Manhattan, K. Hovnanian has constructed 77 Hudson, a luxury high-rise that sits along the Hudson River in Jersey City. Comprehensive views of the Manhattan skyline dominate the river-fronting units—including spot-on views of the forthcoming Freedom Tower, which will replace the destroyed World Trade Center towers. These exquisite condo units are tailored to a modern, crisp design sensibility, and range in size from ~525 square foot studios to ~4,000 square foot three-bedroom apartments. Prices at 77 Hudson range from $300,000 to over $4 million.
Another option along the Hudson river is also offered by Toll Brothers City Living: Hudson Tea. These waterfront, luxury loft condominiums are located in Hoboken, New Jersey, on the Hudson River. Like 77 Hudson, this complex of high-end condo homes offer stunning views of the New York City skyline, viewed through 10′ x 12′ picture windows. The condos also include high-end designer upgrades like stainless steel appliances, hardwood flooring, 13′ ceilings with exposed beams and granite countertops. The building currently has Studio through 2-bedroom floorplans available, and prices range from the $400s to the high $600s.
