Lottery Opens For 75 Affordable Units in Fisher Brothers’ Glassy New Murray Hill Tower

July 29, 2016

Starting today, New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income can apply for 75 brand new units at 225 East 39th Street, the 36-story, curving glass high-rise from the Fisher Brothers and designed by Handel Architects. Located at an interesting crossroads of residential Murray Hill and tower-laden Midtown East, the 373-unit rental offers an impressive pack of amenities, including a fitness center, swimming pool, hot tub and sauna, yoga studio, game room, outdoor terrace, courtyard garden, roof deck with cabanas and barbecue stations, and on-site parking. The affordable units, which may be required to pay additional fees for some of these amenities, range from $833/month studios to $1,247/month three-bedrooms.


As 6sqft previously described, the reflective building has “an L-shaped footprint where its southern elevation is set back from East 39th Street and is distinguished by a gently curving facade. The open, double-height lobby is positioned at the base of this elevation, and inside the lobby is an undulating wood slatted wall and a spiral staircase leading to an amenity floor.”
