The Alexander Is Luxury

Attuned to the needs of busy New Yorkers, Castle Development Group/CFC Finance has begun construction on a new property as unique and innovative as New York itself, The Alexander. Located in historic Turtle Bay, a historic neighborhood that was formerly home to actress Katherine Hepburn and writers Edgar Allen Poe, Tom Wolfe and Truman Capote, The Alexander manifests the area’s rich history and vibrant future.Located only moments away from the city’s cultural landmarks such as the MOMA, Carnegie Hall, Radio City and the distinguished New York Public Library, The Alexander’s residents can truly enjoy the global center of art and culture in New York. Its proximity to the United Nation’s and the area’s extensive cultural and fine dining scene include some of the city’s renowned restaurants such as Chin Chin, Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant and The Smith & Wollensky’s Steak House. For the fashion aficionados, it also means being close to some of the world’s top luxury brands like Chanel, Gucci, Hermes and Prada.The Alexander boasts two commercial real estate floors on the ground and second level. Both spaces offer over 6,000 square feet and the second floor has allocated 1,463 square feet which can be utilized as outdoor seating. The new Second Avenue subway station that is being planned for 52nd and 53rd Street will only further add to the attraction for retailers in this prime location.Castle Development Group’s Senior Vice President of Development, Steven Dobbs explains “we are building a brand of luxury residences that aims to extend the boundaries of life to the fullest. The design is truly a study in balance and harmony.” Upon entering the building’s lobby, residents and guests are welcomed by warm earth tones including softly back lit onyx walls and sophisticated modern furnishing that accentuate simple lines and crisp simplicity. It is at once elegant and luxurious while maintaining the intimacy and coziness that New Yorkers can readily appreciate after spending most of the day amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Among first impressions are those of comfort and stability.The Alexander offers one, two, three and four bedroom units; all equipped with the finest finishes, Poggenpohl kitchens, white oak floors and individually controlled central heat and air conditioning. The floor to ceiling windows combined with the twelve foot ceilings creates an airy sun bathed space with loft-like qualities. Many of the units include private outdoor spaces further complementing the openness of the interior layouts.The Alexander is an ideal home for all New Yorkers who are continuously searching for the extraordinary. For the young professional running between meetings and events, the serene atmosphere of The Alexander offers them a retreat from their demanding commitments, a place for them to find a measure of serenity amidst their exciting and sometimes chaotic life.
