From Citi Habitats:
Carmel Place, located at 335 East 27th Street, is New York’s first micro-unit building. This nine-story residence is the product of a 2012 design competition intended to introduce additional choices within New York’s housing market to accommodate the city’s rapidly growing population. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group collaborated with Monadnock Development on a proposal for the city’s first micro-unit apartment building, originally called “My Micro NY”, and turned out to be the winning proposal selected by the Bloomberg administration.
Each studio residence has been pre-fabricated in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and assembled on site. The efficiently designed studios include over nine foot ceiling heights, floor-to-ceiling windows, Juliette balconies, and ample storage. Tasteful finishes are complimented by Italian cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and Hansgrohe fixtures.
Rents include an all-inclusive package of amenities and services, curated and managed by “Ollie”. The Ollie package includes Wi-Fi; cable; weekly housekeeping service by Hello Alfred, an app-based personal butler service; and a Magnises card, allowing them to tap into members-only social events and venues across the city. Plus, at an additional cost, a number of suites will offer a full furniture and accessories package, allowing for true turn-key living.
Carmel Place is perfectly situated in a pocket of serenity in Kips Bay, while the East River Esplanade, Gramercy Park, and Madison Square are all just moments away.
