Located just off Park Avenue on one of the most coveted streets on the Upper East Side, 109 East 79 is a masterpiece of residential design by world-renowned Steven Harris Architects. Developed by Legion Investment Group, 109 East 79 rises 20 stories and takes its place comfortably among its Gilded Age neighbors, with views sweeping over historic townhouse gardens to the north and east and light-filled East 79th Street and Park Avenue to the south. The building?s fa?ade of fluted limestone and masonry brick, with vast stretches of casement-style windows, offers a timeless addition to a storied streetscape.
Harris, known for private commissions with clients in New York City, the Hamptons, and Napa Valley, has infused 109 East 79 with his richly curated aesthetic. The soaring double-height lobby, lounge and library, are replete with custom fabrics and furnishings, and overlook a private viewing garden with a cascading fountain. Upstairs, a double-height fitness center features a regulation squash court and yoga studio, overlooking the garden below. Additional amenities include a spa equipped with treatment rooms, sauna, and hair salon, a screening room, golf simulator, and a fully-equipped game room.
With 31 two- to five-bedroom residences emphasizing classically proportioned layouts and voluminous spaces, interiors are anchored by grand entertaining and dining areas. Ceiling heights soar up to over 17? and select residences feature unique design elements including fireplaces, private outdoor spaces, and step-down living rooms?an elegant and uncommon design feature. Interior finishes include a carefully selected palette of fine woods and stones, suffused with Harris? signature attention to custom detail.
