Overview of 209 East 48th Street, New York, NY
209 East 48th Street is located just east of 777 Third Avenue in the heart of the Turtle Bay district of Manhattan. It incorporates a 27-block area with 8 million sq. ft. of commercial space, thousands of apartments and some of the finest residential townhouses in Manhattan. Immediate neighbors of the building generally are high-rise office buildings and small residential brownstones. No other micro-market in Manhattan enjoys the mixed-use character and convenience to workplace that this location provides. This gives the East Side a competitive advantage over other New York markets in its ability to capture a broad range of market demand segments.
The four-story, modernist townhouse is set back from the street line with a small private garden at the sidewalk level. Its stucco façade is accentuated by a distinctive window treatment. Cantilevered canopies protect the fourth floor windows and the street level entrance. With a total area of 5,440 sq. ft., the townhouse provides an ideal live/work opportunity for its occupants. The first floor is a separate unit, with a triplex unit making up the upper floors. A lush landscaped garden is located at the rear of the building.
