151 East 85th Street | Upper East Side

The Lucida, 151 East 85th Street, is a new condominium located in New York City's Upper East Side, offering luxury apartments for sale. But it's also more than that: The Lucida represents a step forward in green luxury condominium living, both as the first LEED-certified condo listing on the Upper East Side and as one of the more unique new construction condos in Manhattan. More importantly, while The Lucida boasts such sustainable features such as air filtration, low-VOC finishes and an ambitious recycling campaign, it also offers all the luxuries and conveniences a new construction condominium on the Upper East Side is supposed to. At The Lucida, green building and luxury Manhattan living come together seamlessly.

This is true right down to The Lucida's prime Upper East Side location at 151 East 85th Street, which earned The Lucida LEED points for its easy access to mass transit -- it's just steps to the subway at 86th Street and the 4/5/6 trains. The Lucida's amenities range from the expected Upper East Side luxury condo extras -- the striking lobby, the 24-hour doorman and concierge service -- to some surprising and very contemporary perks. The Lucida's children's playroom was designed by the kid experts at Kidville; the grown-up playroom that is The Lucida's spacious fitness center is similarly well-appointed, and features a swimming pool. The private wine cellar is another of The Lucida's unique amenities, and the landscaped rooftop sun-deck offers an especially lovely combination of green building form and luxury condo graciousness -- all of The Lucida's lush landscaping is irrigated with recycled rainwater.

The spacious floor plans of the condos for sale at The Lucida offer residents a unique opportunity to customize their condominium. Star designer Russell Groves effortless melding of classical Manhattan condo elegance and forward-thinking modernism is evident in each condo for sale at The Lucida. Living areas are bathed in sunlight -- through energy-efficient floor-to-ceiling windows, of course -- and feature soaring 10-foot ceilings and luminous chocolate-stained solid oak floors. The spacious baths at The Lucida feature marble floors, stone accents and cast-iron soaking tubs, while the gourmet kitchens pair an ultra-modern openness with state-of-the-art appliances. Green building features throughout ensure that each apartment for sale at The Lucida is as efficient as it is luxurious. In the living spaces, as throughout this unique green condo, The Lucida strikes an elegant balance between sustainability and classic Upper East Side condo opulence.
