The Empire, located at 188 78th Street was built in 2000, has 32-floors and 72 spacious apartments. Though it was recently built, this tower has the charm of a pre-war building allowing each resident to have the best of both worlds, a charming and historic feeling and all of the best modern amenities.
The entrance to the building has a gorgeous, marbled lobby that is impressive and stately while also inviting. There is also an incredible spiral staircase that leads to the mezzanine level lobby, which includes a dining room, cinema room, gym, and business center. This is also where residents will find the entrance to the large and impressive garden.
The layout of these spacious homes varies a bit from floor to floor. The third and fourth floor have smaller units, while floors eight through seventeen have only three residences, with huge entryways, and two to three bedrooms. Floors eighteen through 27 have two large homes, each with four bedrooms and gorgeous balconies. These spaces also have formal dining rooms and maid’s rooms. There are also duplex units available, if you are looking for larger, split level spaces.
Each home has generous, 9-foot ceilings, marble bathrooms, and large windows. Most apartments have outdoor space in the form of terraces or balconies, though for the units that don’t have private outdoor space, there is a common roof deck that is available to all residents.
One of the many perks of living here is the large storage room and wine cellar in the basement, which any wine connoisseur would be jealous of.
Homes in this building are incredibly luxurious, and offer each resident a very long list of amenities, with the added benefit of being located in one of Manhattan’s most premier neighborhoods, the Upper East Side.
