Sales have launched at a new condo tower on the Upper East Side that offers large, light-filled residences and hotel-inspired amenities. The Leyton, located at 1059 Third Avenue in the Lenox Hill neighborhood, contains 38 luxury homes, priced from $2.1 million for a one-bedroom to $11.6 million for a four-bedroom, along with a duplex penthouse with the price available upon request. Designed by former Rafael Viñoly architect Manuel Glas, the glass and stone tower features an Art Deco-inspired exterior with chic interiors from Frampton Co and distinctive amenity space by Champalimaud Design.

Florida-based Dart Interests and Real Estate Inverlad acquired the site in 2012 for $31.5 million. The project involved demolishing the five-story Art & Design Building in 2015 and utilizing development rights from an adjacent apartment building at 1065 Third Avenue.

The condos start on the 10th floor, with office space taking up the lower levels. Above the 24th-floor “Brandy Room,” an indoor-outdoor residence lounge, is a collection of 10 full-floor residences and one duplex penthouse. Each of the private homes boasts panoramic views of Central Park and the East River, with most of the units flaunting outdoor space. These upper-level homes start at $8.35 million.

“Our spacious, full-floor apartments with high ceilings and spectacular views are coupled with bespoke services to offer a unique option in the venerable Upper East Side,” Christopher Kelsey, President of Dart Interests, said in a press release. “We are thrilled to welcome our first residents this fall to enjoy the boutique hotel-inspired lifestyle that The Leyton provides.”

Elena Frampton of Frampton Co. designed the interiors as a modern twist on classic glamour, mixing functionality and state-of-the-art conveniences with loft-like ceilings, oak flooring, and custom finishes. There are vented gas fireplaces, radiant heated floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows wired for motorized shades. The open concept kitchens feature Poggenpohl cabinetry, marble countertops, and Gaggenau appliances, including a dishwasher and wine fridge.

“With The Leyton, we had the opportunity to pair a restrained sensibility with an artful design vision,” Frampton said. “The property’s private spaces and their astounding scale, proportions and light gave us a unique canvas to bring to life.”

Champalimaud drew “inspiration from the Upper East Side’s beloved boutique hotels” for the building’s amenity spaces. The Brandy Room has both indoor and outdoor space, including a solarium, lounge with a fireplace, sun terrace, and a dining room and dining terrace. Additional perks include a fitness studio with high-end equipment, a dog grooming station, private storage, and a bike room.

The duplex penthouse sits at 460 feet in the sky and has a huge outdoor terrace with unobstructed city and park views. The penthouse pricing is available upon request.

Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing is handling the sales and marketing for The Leyton, with in-person and virtual tours of the building now available. One-bedroom residences are available starting at $2.12 million and two-bedrooms at $3.14 million. Full-floor condos start at $8.35 million for a three-bedroom and $11.6 million for a four-bedroom. Delivery is anticipated this fall.
