The Kent

 We have a new #fabULyssfamilyfriendly find just for you!

Q: Please tell our readers about Extell’s new “#FabULyss” Art Deco Upper East Side condo, The Kent? What made the Art Deco architecture an inspiration for this beautiful building?


A: Designed by award-winning architect Beyer Blinder Belle, The Kent is a modern take on the classic pre-war building. Paying homage to the history of the Upper East Side, The Kent’s architectural vocabulary expresses a harmonious relationship with the classic brick buildings along Park and Fifth Avenues, accented by metal panels, crown lanterns, oversized loft-style windows, and a limestone clad base. Saluting classic Art Deco structures of the 1920s, the building’s silhouette is shaped by a series of graceful setbacks, chamfered corners and careful articulation of the facade that culminates in a decorative metal, glass and masonry crown at the top of the building.


Q: Where exactly is the building located? What makes this location so great for NYC families that want to live on the Upper East Side?


A: The Kent is located at 200 East 95th Street, at the corner of 95th Street and Third Avenue. The building is adjacent to the new Second Avenue subway and in close proximity to some of the best schools and parks in the City, as well as fine dining and cultural institutions. Adding to the allure is the convenience of a bus stop at 93rd Street and 3rd Avenue that transports children to popular summer camps and extracurricular activities.

Q: How big are the apartments? What are some of the favorite features of the apartments?


A:  The Kent offers a collection of 83 grand condominium residences that showcase elegant and intelligent living spaces. Curated by celebrated designer Alexandra Champalimaud, the interiors have been crafted for the modern family lifestyle.  They include large kitchens and living spaces while incorporating the charm and allure of a classic pre-war aesthetic. The two-to-five-bedroom homes – a select few with large private terraces – range in size from 1,285 to more than 4,500-square-feet. The residences boast 10-to-15-foot ceilings and large windows that highlight the multiple exposures and views of Midtown, Central Park and the East River.


Q: What schools, parks and restaurants are most coveted in the area?


A: The Kent is perfectly situated between Central Park and Carl Schurz Park, offering residents access to some of the best parks and playgrounds on the Upper East Side. Prestigious public and private schools, including The Spence School, The Dalton School and The Winward School, are all within walking distance of the building. The Kent will also be in close proximity to the stylish boutiques on Madison Avenue such as Blue Tree, Alice + Olivia and cultural institutions along Museum Mile, including The Frick Collection, The Guggenheim, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Met Breuer.

Residents who live in this coveted enclave of the Upper East Side enjoy sought-after neighborhood amenities such as a Whole Foods Market, and some of the best restaurants in the city including Sfoglia, The Writing Room and Sarabeth’s.
