The history

An investor bought this place before it was built and never ended up living here. The only occupants have been guests of his. All the lived-in touches are the work of a stager.

Big selling point

Despite being one of the smaller new buildings in Yorkville, this one has some of the best amenities, including a yoga studio, a screening room, a sundeck, a fire pit and a lap pool with cabanas.

Possible deal breaker

The kitchen is sleek and seamlessly integrated, but the fridge and freezer are on the small side. That could mean frequent trips to Whole Foods. (Fortunately, it’s a five-minute walk away.)
