Another one of the housing developments in the works near Madison Square Park is the Whitman at 21 East 26th Street (between 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue). We are used to seeing new housing developments and conversions with hundreds of units, but the Whitman will feature just three huge full floor residences with views on to the north side of Madison Square Park.
The units are all over 5000 square feet, with the penthouse duplex coming in at 6,250 square feet. But don’t think just because there are only 3 units that there will be no amenities…the Whitman will be a full service doorman building with interiors by British designer Kelly Hoppen.
With Madison Square Park facing units commanding over $2,000/square foot, it will be very interesting to see how high these trophy apartments may go for once they are on the market. No word yet on occupancy dates.
