Today CBSK Ironstate, a longstanding partnership of CB Developers, SK Development, and Ironstate, unveiled the design of 1228 Madison Avenue, a boutique-scale residential building in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood of New York's Upper East Side. Currently under construction, the building will offer 14 full-floor residences and a duplex penthouse. 1228 Madison Avenue will incorporate a shopfront into its shot-sawn limestone base; above, intricately detailed gray brick facades will be accented in cast stone. Kelly Behun Studio has designed the building's residential interiors.
"We have designed a building with a personality all its own, but one that grows out of the traditions of the Upper East Side and the eclectic architectural spirit of Carnegie Hill," said Paul L. Whalen, a Partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects. "1228 Madison Avenue participates in the life of one of the world's great shopping streets and rises to celebrate panoramic views in all directions, including spectacular views over Central Park."
"Taking cues from some of New York's most admired early 20th-century apartment houses," said Michael D. Jones, also a Partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects, "we've elegantly expressed the variety of rooms within by carefully situating windows and terraces on our building's facades, endowing each full-floor residence with a sense of individuality as the building steps up to its romantic crown."
"1228 Madison Avenue is a refreshing addition to Manhattan's luxury real-estate market; the intimate scale of the building lends itself wonderfully to locals and families seeking a home in the heart of the Upper East Side," said SK Development's Scott Shnay. "Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Kelly Behun Studio have brought to life residences that are rooted in the great history of our city, but possess a sensibility that looks towards its future."
