The Laurel is a high-end residential condominium building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The structure consisted of 128 luxury units, a state-of-the-art amenity space, an indoor pool, 14,000 SF of office and retail space, and two levels of underground parking, containing a total of 26 double-stackers and a fitness center. The residences have ceilings ranging between nine and 12 feet in height, solid white oak flooring, a four-pipe fan coil system, in-swing casement windows, and painted solid-core flush doors with Valli Himalaya satin chrome door levers. The building, designed by award-winning architects Costas Kondylis & Partners, is 31 stories high and has a façade of glass and Indiana limestone. The LEED-certified construction included water-efficient landscaping, enhanced refrigeration management, low-emitting materials, and a design that conscientiously maximizes optimal daylight to decrease electrical costs. In September 2009, The Laurel was announced as the winner of the Building of America Award by Real Estate and Construction Review.
