Extell Development Company's The Kent fully topped out in February and has been racing towards completion. The Kent is a new luxury residential development in the Upper East Side designed by Beyer Blinder Belle. The building’s architecture is a nod to the history of the Upper East Side that includes the classic buildings found along Park and Fifth Avenues, and pays homage to New York City’s Art Deco structures from the 1920s. The Kent’s façade is constructed of brick and limestone, accented by metalwork paneling, oversized windows, and culminates with a series of steel and glass lanterns crowning the building. The grand entrance on 95th street opens onto a remarkable double-height lobby paneled in rich rosewood. The sales gallery is located at 1450 Lexington Avenue.
The Kent will feature 83 luxurious grand condominium residences designed with elegant living spaces. Floor-plans range from 2-to-5 bedroom layouts and range in size from 1,285 SF to over 5,000 SF. Pricing start at $2,450,000, and the building offers a 421A tax abatement. Units feature 10-to-15 foot ceilings, 8x8-foot windows that highlight the multiple exposures and views of Midtown, Central Park and the East River; and distinctive finishing details including custom millwork and hardware, and a choice of Ebonized or Brushed Oak flooring throughout. Interior design by Alexandra Champalimaud's firm Champalimaud includes bespoke interiors that reflect a stately, Park Avenue perspective. Designs incorporate classic elements such as gracious foyers, formal living and dining rooms, state-of-the-art kitchens and luxurious bathrooms complete with luxe finishes and materials. As with all Extell buildings, residents will be able to choose from the three signature “Extell Choice” of distinct finish selections.
Three levels of indoor and outdoor lifestyle services and amenities include a drawing room featuring a fireplace and marble-top bar, 3rd floor garden salon that includes a billiards table, a full catering kitchen all overlooking a beautifully landscaped courtyard designed by West8 Landscape Architects, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a heated indoor swimming pool and Finnish saunas, a dog wash station and stroller valet. A one-of-a-kind amenity offered at The Kent is The Sound Lounge, designed by Lenny Kravitz’s Kravitz Design firm. The lounge is a blended state-of-the-art recreational space, screening and family room, and a refined rehearsal studio. Professional quality instruments give residents a rare opportunity to play and practice music in their own building.
