Manhattan real estate is the land of acronyms and abbreviations, from Soho to FiDi to the LES. So MiMA -- a hybrid new luxury rental and condominium building from The Related Companies whose name is short for Middle of Manhattan -- fits right in. But there's more to MiMA than a nifty acronym -- few luxury rental listings in Midtown West, and few rentals anywhere in Manhattan, offer as wide-ranging and impressive a suite of amenities as MiMA. Factor in a prime midtown location at 42nd Street and Tenth Avenue that puts MiMA -- as the name says -- at the middle of Manhattan, and it's easy to see why MiMA is one of the most anticipated new luxury apartment listings in New York.
Even for Midtown West, which is home to some of the most extravagantly amenitized new luxury rentals in Manhattan, MiMA stands out for the breadth of its luxurious extras. While many of the amenities at MiMA play to type for high-end Manhattan rental listings -- the 24-hour doorman and concierge, the striking, two-story wood-and-glass lobby -- many of the other amenities at this new luxury rental are far more unusual. While many luxury rental listings offer in-house fitness centers, MiMA boasts and on-site outpost of high-end gym Equinox, as well as a full-size basketball court and full-length indoor pool. MiMA's large footprint also includes a dog spa by Dog City and on-site, off-Broadway theaters designed by mega-architect Frank Gehry. A suite of other luxurious extras, from a screening room to a fully equipped game room to lushly landscaped terraces and decks add to the MiMA living experience. With an astonishing 44,000 square feet of amenities, MiMA ranks with any luxury condo or high-end hotel in Manhattan when it comes to value-added extras. Which makes sense, given that the upper floors of MiMA are given over to luxury condominiums and a cabin-style hotel by luxury hoteliers Yotel. Luxury rentals from The Related Companies are renowned in Manhattan real estate circles for their full-spectrum amenities, but MiMA impresses even by those standards.
The apartments for rent at MiMA are every bit as impressive as the amenities on offer. Condo-quality finishes are the rule in the spacious apartments for rent, and floor-to-ceiling windows ensure that each apartment for rent at MiMA is bathed in natural light. Gourmet kitchens feature top-of-the-line appliances, kitchen islands and custom cabinetry; elegant baths boast marble, porcelain and granite accents. Attention to detail is the rule throughout every apartment for rent at MiMA -- whether it's the luminous hardwood floors or uniquely posh fixtures in the baths, apartments at MiMA stand out for their thought-of-everything luxury. Little wonder, then, that MiMA is shaping up as a blockbuster in the Manhattan rental marketplace.
