Extell hasn’t been making many friends with its new tower currently on the rise at 250 South Street, right next to the Manhattan Bridge. But even with hordes of locals cursing the mega-sized 80-story tower, Extell seems unfazed by the hate. Not only have they been unwavering about the development’s 850-foot out-of-context height (the Manhattan Bridge is only 330 feet tall, mind you), the developer also has little interest in selling any units to anyone stateside, instead marketing their condos first to Asian buyers.
Now, The Lo-Down has gotten their hands on the brochure that’s being sent to Asia’s wealthiest, an 88-pager revealing fancy apartment interiors and all of the “over-the-top” amenities that will fill the building, including things like a 70-seat movie theater, a tree house, a tea pavilion, a putting green, a sunken tranquility garden, a bowling alley, 75-foot indoor pool, a dog spa, a cellar bar…As written in the packet: “One Manhattan Square will redefine downtown luxury living.”
In total there will be over 100,000 square feet of amenities. The apartments—which come in either “light” or “dark” depending on your favored palette—are being designed by Meyer Davis, a firm that specializes in hospitality.
The gardens and all the other outdoor frills are the work of landscape architects West 8, a studio that’s done both major public and private projects across the globe.
While the offer will rival that of Extell’s Billionaires’ Row developments, apartments at One Manhattan Square will go for just $1-3 million—far below the eight- and nine-figure price tags seen uptown. In an interview with Bloomberg several weeks ago, Extell’s head honcho Gary Barnett said, “There are a tremendous amount of people who would like to own something in New York City but are priced out because everybody’s building super-luxury.”
There will be over 800 posh units up for grabs and an affordable housing complex on the same site with 205 units; no word on what sort of perks will be available to below market rate tenants.
More images of the interiors can be seen in our gallery below and over at the Lo-Down.
