The Helena on 601 West 57th Street in Clinton is more than just a luxury rental building in mid Manhattan. It’s also a LEED-certified green building, that caters to contemporary environmental concerns. This new building was developed in 2004. It is 38 floors high with 597 luxury apartments for rent, that range in size from studios to one- and two-bedroom suites. Like all new, LEED-certified buildings, it was designed with an eye towards modern trends and sensibilities, and as such has something to offer every contemporary New Yorker. In addition to luxurious rooms and a view of the Hudson River, the Helena also offers numerous amenities, that enhance the experience without diluting from it’s positive environmental impact.
Each room in the Helena comes with wide oak-plank floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Every kitchen comes custom made with Italian tile floors, and state-of-the-art kitchen appliances. The bathrooms come with hygienic Zodiaq counters, apothecary-style cabinets, and imported tile floors. Every room also comes with Wi-Fi Internet.
The amenities in the Helena include a 24-hour doorman, a concierge, a gym, and a lounge with a fireplace. But with so much just outside the building, residents can hardly be blamed for spending their after-work hours outdoors. Not only is the Hudson River just steps away, but the Helena is close to Central Park, Columbus Circle, Dewitt Clinton Park, and countless stores, restaurants and bars in Manhattan’s up-and-coming Clinton neighborhood. It all adds up to a residential building that, not only provides residents with conveniences, but also allows them to live in a building fitted for modern concerns.
