A couple scours the Hudson Yards area for that ‘brand-spanking-new feeling,’ and all the amenities that come with it.
The couple went on the hunt for a rental in late spring, intending to line up a one-bedroom before their July wedding so they could move in post-honeymoon. They wanted a new, amenity-filled building for themselves and Andiamo, their Italian greyhound.
Then there was Oskar, on 11th Avenue near 43d Street, with just 164 apartments. The Peppers found the small size more appealing than a massive building with hundreds of units. It felt to them like a boutique hotel.
They saw several iterations of one-bedrooms, some with balconies and many with interesting hallways and curves. The building also offers access to most of the amenities at Sky, across the street, the largest rental building in New York, with nearly 1,200 units. (Both were developed by the Moinian Group.)
