Located on 2nd Avenue in Midtown East, Halcyon is one of the new modern developments in the neighborhood. Enjoy tax abatement, stylish minimalist finishes and amenities that are relevant to buyers looking for a quality condo in Manhattan.
The development has been in the making for over ten years; thus, the layouts in some of the units may not be as appealing to today’s discerning buyer.
Ten-foot ceilings, six-inch-wide plank oak floors, and solid wood interior doors are just a few of the details make the condos of Halcyon so impressive. Poliform custom kitchens with Silver Fox lacquered cabinets, Calacatta Gold Lignano marble countertops and Miele, Sub-Zero, and Wolf appliances with Kohler faucets invite dinner parties, while bathrooms feature Kohler baths and fixtures. Master baths have white statuary marble floors, walls, and countertops, glass enclosed showers, and radiant heated floors. Secondary bathrooms are outfitted with polished glass tile, and Tabu Bolivar vanities with glass slab countertops.
Rising and shining at 32 glass-clad stories, Halcyon has a landscaped courtyard for residents to enjoy, and a fire pit to keep them warm. Other amenities include a library, 21st-floor “sky lounge” with dining and media room, a gym, spa and sauna, indoor swimming pool, children’s playroom, full-time doorman, concierge, and bicycle storage.
The Turtle Bay neighborhood relatively serene and quiet. Its high rise buildings and brownstone attract diplomats who work in the the United Nations Headquarters, as well as well-known icons. Its proximity to Grand Central Station and subway lines, gives the building direct access to other sections of Manhattan and points around the city.
