Early marketing campaigns stirred some controversy for using Katz’s cachet (remember that scene from “When Harry Met Sally?”) and upscale hipster imagery, though the renderings of a winsome young bohemian lass enjoying the new luxe digs aren’t much different from most new-condo marketing messages.

Amenity-wise, an adjacent 30,000 square-foot Equinox gym “that marks the continued reinvention of the neighborhood” is a big selling point, with residents getting a private entrance to the fancy fitness facility.
