Inspired by iconic California modernism, the boutique collection of six full-floor rental residences at 318 East 81st Street combines the openness of loft-like living with quintessential Upper East Side graciousness. Designed by internationally-acclaimed designer Andres Escobar, this rarefied address offers privacy, indoor and outdoor living, meticulous craftsmanship, and a rich, yet elegantly understated palette of materials.

Emphasizing the abundance of natural light and fluid transitions between indoors and outdoors, the residences feature floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive windowed doorways, which in nearly all homes, open onto balconies on both front and rear sides of the building. 

318 East 81st Street includes six two- and three-bedroom full-floor residences, each with a private elevator. The ground floor residence is a duplex featuring an expansive garden, accessed from both floors. The two beautifully appointed, landscaped rooftop terraces offer an opportunity to entertain against the stunning backdrop of neighborhood and skyline views. Accessed through a glass-enclosed atrium, these spaces are exclusive to penthouse and fifth floor residences. Privacy is further enhanced by the part time doorman.
