Oddly enough, given the area, and that this is a new tower, the prices aren't that bad. The view is killer.

not all that transformative, . .
but it's great to have another fine shaped building on the NYC waterfront . .
I just noticed, for the 1st time, the rather prominent surface color-variation . .
The glass, and horizontal concrete-edges demarcating the floors,
are darker in contiguous sections, . . so as to compose a very graphic, curvy band . .
wigglng up the 2 wider sides of the building . . It's a relatively inexpensive way . .
to add complexity and whimsy to the architecture . . Though it's a smidgeon tacky . .

I think it would have been nicer architecturally, . . to see glass wrapping
the sumptuous tight curves . . of the East & West sides of the building . .
with balconies indented into the floors close to, but not monopolizing . .
the more extreme curves of the building's volume . .
As it is, the most dramatic curves in the glass curtain wall, don't happen . .
therefore the most distinctive exterior wall, for interior rooms, doesn't happen either . .
In other words, the place where the glass walls of the ellipse shape,
should be most convex, and bulge out . . actually become concave,
& they cave inward instead . .
The best thing architecturally about The Ellipse . .
is that it's geometry is elliptically-shaped . . Yet it doesn't even read that way
from many angles . . Its East end looks pretty flat from the esplanade in Manhattan . .
But developers saved money this way . . and tenants will enjoy the balconies . .
perhaps even more with them facing more directly East . .
They'll certainly enjoy great river views . .

That parking garage is a disgrace. Like a cancerous tumor growing from the side of the building. They could have at least clad it with aluminum panels or something, but as it looks now, it's just this massive ugly grey concrete blight on the waterfront. It doesn't pair at all with the sleek tower to which is connects. Imagine living in that building across the street. Not only was your sweeping NYC view blocked, but it was replaced with an ugly parking garage the likes of which you'd find at a suburban mall...

NEWPORT’S CURVY ELLIPSE IS NOW 60 PERCENT LEASED



Quote:
LeFrak’s new luxury rental, the Ellipse, is 60 percent leased.

Leasing at the building commenced in April and residents began moving into the 42-story tower last week.

Designed by Arquitectonica, the oval-shaped tower’s location — at the end of 25 Park Lane South — gives it an edge over other super luxury buildings because its New York views are completely unblocked.

But the views are just part of the picture. When you’re paying $2,600/month for a studio, you can expect some unique amenities, of which the Ellipse has many, including a two-level lobby, co-working space, fully equipped children’s playroom, outdoor pool, and a gym that overlooks the Manhattan skyline. (Take that, Equinox!)

The building, which has units that range from studios to four-bedroom penthouses, was also featured in the New York Times, which has never hurt anyone before.
