The Emory

23,000 square feet
15 stories, 14 units
New York, New York

The limestone base, glazed gray brick, and zinc detailing that define this luxury multifamily building were inspired by the white neoclassical facades found throughout the Ladies’ Mile Historic District.

Rising high above neighboring buildings, The Emory is a narrow condominium tower that contributes to the historic district's sawtooth streetscape with a contemporary design that reflects the eclectic array of turn-of-the-century structures found throughout. 

Its clear tripartite division, defined by a limestone base, simple modern cornice, and glazed gray brick cladding surrounding a zinc-detailed central bay, was inspired by the white brick and stone Neoclassical facades found throughout Ladies’ Mile, many of which were designed by architects who worked on the 1893 Columbia Exposition—also known as “The White City.” The Emory’s 14 full-floor condominium units all feature at least two exposures, keyed elevator access, and a private terrace. The duplex penthouse also has access to a 1,000-square-foot private roof terrace.
