Summit New York’s 429 rentals will hit the market in
January

The sleek, garage-replacing rental tower at 222 East 44th Street
between Second and Third avenues known as Summit New York will

finally hit the market
in January 2019.

Ahead of the launch BLDG Management, the tower’s developer,
has unveiled the first interior renderings of the building,
alongside a website featuring
nine preview listings with floorplans. Those listings, which will
be handled by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing, range from a
12th floor studio that will ask $3,370/month to a 22nd floor two
bedroom, two-bathroom apartment that will seek $7,850/month.

The Handel Architects-designed building will offer 429 market
rate apartments ranging from studios to three-bedrooms with
interiors by Escobar Design by Lemay. The trapezoidal rental tower
is BLDG’s first ground-up project in New York, and has been
designed by Handel to maximize the building’s views (which will
include Grand Central Station, just two blocks away, in the
foreground.)

In addition to a through-block circular drive court and on-site
parking, building amenities will include a gym with basketball and
squash courts, an indoor swimming pool and sauna, a screening room,
a children’s playroom, an outdoor terrace, and a lounge and
dining room on the 42nd floor.

The housing lottery for the building’s 109 affordable
apartments
opened in April
