Construction is wrapping up at HFZ Capital Group's rental to condo conversion at 88 and 90 Lexington Avenue, in the NoMad neighborhood. This two-building project consists of a 19-story pre-war building from 1927 and shorter, 13-story tower from 1958, both of which served as offices for Blue Cross and Blue Shield originally. Workshop/APD has overseen the design of the project, which includes the interior renovation of the pre-war tower at 88 Lexington and a complete overhaul of the interior and exterior of the 1958 tower at 90 Lexington.
Residents of both towers have access to over 8,000 square feet of amenities including lobby, screening room, residents' lounge, gym and locker rooms, children's play room, and a 60-foot swimming pool.
Model Residence: 88 Lexington
Workshop/APD have designed and staged model units in 88 Lexington that showcase the renovation, with open plan living areas and high ceilings left over from the building's past life as an office building. Large windows, newly replaced, allow for well lit rooms throughout.
Model Residence: 90 Lexington
At 90 Lexington, the new stone and glass façade creates a unique residential experience from the adjacent tower. These units will provide expansive views from near floor-to-ceiling windows, giving the spaces a contemporary feel.
Architect: Workshop/APD; Developer: HFZ Capital Group; Sales and Marketing: Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group; Program: Residential, Retail; Location: NoMad, New York, NY; Completion: 2016.
