Three Classic Manhattan Luxury Rentals with Available Apartments

While it feels like new developments are popping up throughout Manhattan every day, it’s good to keep in mind all the stunning established luxury buildings that still have available apartments.

Emerald Green

 Located at 320 West 38th in the Garment District, this 24-story rental holds 569 apartments. Built in 2008, this tower was the first LEED-certified rental building in NYC and still stands as one of the best sustainable buildings in the city. Each of the units are fitted with condo-quality finishes including bamboo flooring, energy-efficient windows, kitchens with GE appliances, granite-accented countertops, Energy Star-rated washers and dryers, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Residents can enjoy the building's many amenities such as the state-of-the-art fitness center, 50-foot lap pool, an interior garden, and a beautiful landscaped green roof. Currently still on the market are studios to two-bedroom units starting at $3,400 per month.

 The Helena

Developed in 2005, this 38-story tower at 601 West 57th Street is also LEED-certified and features modern appliances that aim to promote sustainability. The 597 rentals range in size from studios to two-bedrooms. Some units have a view of the Hudson River while others can see the beautiful city skyline, but all of the homes have floor-to-ceiling windows, Italian tile floors in the kitchen with wooden cabinets, hygienic Zodiaq counters in the bathrooms, and more. Residents have access to the amenities which include a gym, lounge room, rooftop deck, as well as the convenient location of the building which sits only steps away from Central Park, Columbus Circle Hudson River, and countless restaurants and stores. A studio starts at $2,650 a month.

The Westport

 In 2003, a 24-story tower was developed at 500 West 56th Street which brought 371 luxury rentals to Midtown West. Every unit features high ceilings with large windows, parquet floors, carpeted bedrooms, kitchens with granite countertops, wooden cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and bathrooms with a soaking tub and marble counters. Residents will enjoy the nearby upscale restaurants and bars, boutique shops, and also have access to the building's  fitness center, half-court basketball court, and the beautifully landscaped rooftop sun terrace. Studios start at $3,150 per month and one-bedrooms at $4,150 per month.
