“It’s an attitude of refined constraint,” CetraRuddy principal Nancy J. Ruddy said in a statement, “and a revival of romantic styles that brings a bit of magic back to this special part of the Upper West Side.”
Residents have access to 4,000 square feet of amenity space, including a club room, fitness area, and “the Cottage,” an enchanted forest–inspired children’s playroom that opens onto its own secret garden.
The Louise Phillips Forbes team at Brown Harris Stevens is handling sales, with a three-bedroom unit going for about $3.7 million.
The key to Gramercy Park
Urban Development Partners has launched sales for the Edison Gramercy, a 54-unit boutique condominium designed by Issac & Stern to invoke neoclassical Parisian architecture.
With interiors by Paris Forino Designs, the residences range from studios to four bedrooms and are appointed with white-oak herringbone flooring, deep crown moldings, and Juliette balconies.
When the building is completed later this year, residents will have access to social and wellness amenities, as well as an array of secret gardens that “blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living,” according to the release.
Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes at Douglas Elliman are the property’s exclusive sales agents.
Frank Gehry returns to Toronto
Legendary architect Frank Gehry was born in Canada but has never designed a project in the country—until now. Forma, a mixed-use development in Gehry’s hometown of Toronto, includes two residential towers that, standing at 73 and 84 stories respectively, will house a total of 2,034 units.
Gehry explains the towers’ twisting structures and iridescent façades will reflect the sunlight and surrounding buildings. “I wanted to create an ensemble of buildings that were respectful to the city and referential to the Toronto that I once knew,” he said in a statement.
Under the aegis of Great Gulf Group, Dream, and Westdale Properties, Forma will also be home to commercial and retail spaces and a new space for the Ontario College of Art & Design.
In Miami, NFT art comes with ownership
Lofty, the new 44-story tower coming to Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, has launched what Newgard Development Group is calling the first NFT art collective for condo owners.
Original digital artworks will be on display in the building, with ownership of a custom NFT artwork transferred to each unit owner upon purchase of their residence.
Four local artists are designing NFTs for the project, starting with Carlos Betancourt, who will activate his hypnotic Re-Collections VIII series, which the artist says connects his experiences in Miami and his roots in the Caribbean.
“At its core, it is an animated kaleidoscopic composition, bursting with collaged imagery that moves as in an eternal dance, constantly blending and mixing to the cultural mutations and syncretism of our times,” Betancourt said in a statement.
Furnished studios as well as one- and two-bedroom residences at the Arquitectonica-designed building are available from $490,000 to $1.3 million.
Bentley pulls up to Miami
Dezer Development has unveiled the first renderings of Bentley Residences, the metallic cylindrical tower on Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach that will be the tallest on any U.S. beachfront when it’s completed in 2026.
The carmaker’s first residential property, the 60-story building was designed by Sieger Suarez in collaboration with Bentley designers Brett Boydell and Chris Cooke. Each of the 216 residences will include private pools on the balcony and a glass-enclosed car elevator (or “Dezervator”) that lets residents park on their floor.
Building amenities include a restaurant, whiskey bar, screening room, and a game room with V.R. headsets. Construction is set to start next year, with pricing between $4 and $6 million.
