The Marlowe

145 East 81st Street   |   Upper East Side

The Marlowe is a unique luxury rental building that offers those looking for apartments on the Upper East Side condo-quality living and understated elegance in the very heart of one of Manhattan's most desirable neighborhoods. With an eye-catching design by Philip Birnbaum and a prime location, The Marlowe offers renters modern luxury rentals that come with all the amenities apartment seekers expect from a luxury rental on the Upper East Side.

The Marlowe's duplexes, one-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom apartments all offer distinctive and stylish layouts, balancing the expected luxury attributes -- modern baths and kitchens, copious natural light through double-pane windows -- with some unexpected elements. Nine-foot ceilings lend the large rooms an airy, open aspect; fireplaces provide a warming, rustic touch; the sunken living rooms are ideal for entertaining. Perhaps the most special feature at The Marlowe, though, is space -- with only five rental units per floor and in-unit washers and dryers, the available rental units at The Marlowe offer unparalleled privacy and comfort. The lovely rooftop sundeck offers a welcome breath of fresh air, the on-site garage offers rare convenience, and the 24-hour doorman and concierge service adds another layer of luxurious comfort to The Marlowe's opulent living experience.

Beyond The Marlowe's canopied entrance and revolving door lies one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Manhattan. The best of the Upper East Side is just steps away, with abundant elite dining and shopping options nearby and museum mile and Central Park just a few blocks away. Mass transit, too, is close -- the crosstown bus at 79th street is nearby, while the 4, 5, and 6 trains are just a short walk away. The Marlowe offers renters luxurious, condominium-style rental apartments and a prime location at the heart of uptown Manhattan's most elegant and desirable neighborhood.
