Big, Beautiful & Move-In Ready

By AP Connolly

Rarely does a home so thoughtfully adapt and anticipate our changing lifestyle as 1289 Lexington. True to the hallmark quality of Zeckendorf Development, 1289 Lexington offers spacious residences ranging from two to five bedrooms on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in the prestigious Carnegie Hill neighborhood.

Designed by the internationally acclaimed firm HOK Architects with interiors by Architectural Digest Top 100 designer Lee Mindel, co-founder of SheltonMindel, 1289 Lexington offers 61 custom, large loft-like homes ranging from 1,526 to 4,546 square feet. The limestone-clad tower provides grand proportions, balanced by oversized bay windows, soaring ceilings of up to 12 feet, and some of the best closet space in Manhattan.

The expansive open-plan living rooms provide what is often lacking in Manhattan apartments—space. Lofty ceilings and tall windows allow light to fill the living spaces and create bright, peaceful spaces.  

An open, modern, and polished kitchen is close to the dining and living area, offering a feeling of connectivity yet a peaceful and leisurely atmosphere. Kitchens feature beautiful marble islands, rows of custom walnut cabinetry, chef-grade Gaggenau appliances, and gas cooktops with vented hoods. In addition, each home includes a four-pipe heating and cooling system with Nest controls and private laundry with a vented dryer.  

Bedrooms are located away from the home’s living area, separated by hallways creating a sanctuary from the busy world, where floor-to-ceiling windows support the circadian rhythms. Primary bedroom suites include incredibly generous walk-in closets and luxurious spa-like baths with exquisite design. The primary bathroom features marble walls and countertops above elegant Arabescato Oro floors. Walnut vanities and custom medicine cabinets provide ample storage. Custom cover lighting makes you look your best, while water closets in the primary bathrooms offer complete privacy.

Catering to the discerning buyer, the full-service building delivers more than 5,000 square feet of thoughtfully designed luxury amenities. The dedicated amenity floor provides unparalleled access to a sprawling Club Room with a full kitchen and fourth-floor outdoor terrace; a windowed state-of-the-art fitness center; a whimsical and fun-filled children’s playroom designed to delight the building’s youngest residents; private study and tutoring pods; a music and multi-media room; as well as a separate conference room with Zoom capabilities. 

1289 Lexington is crowned by a rooftop oasis that offers an outdoor lounge area with a fireplace and an outdoor kitchen with a grill, all set against the backdrop of dazzling Manhattan views.  

Located between Central Park on the west and Carl Schurz Park on the east, 1289 Lexington is just steps to the Copper Hewitt, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, and Neue Galerie. Shopping at Whole Foods, Eli’s, and West Side Market is a treat, or one can enjoy Sfoglia, Paola’s, Café Sabarsky, and countless other great restaurants regularly. Residents can also enjoy generations-old businesses like the Corner Bookstore, Flowers by Philip, and Craft Studio, bringing locals together to share culture and celebrate milestones. 

1289 Lexington is the newest addition to the Zeckendorf portfolio, joining such illustrious buildings as 520 Park Avenue, 18 Gramercy Park South, and 15 Central Park West.  

Asking price: Ranges from $2,495,000 to $16,000,000. For more information on 1289 Lexington Avenue, contact Jeffrey Stockwell, Jill Bernard, and Alan Shaker of Brown Harris Stevens at bhsusa.com
