Era, a 20-story condominium building located at 251 West 91st Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, has revealed its model residence offering a first look inside the exquisite homes designed by ODA. Era’s model residence is a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home totaling 1,837 square feet. The residence is on the market for $4.55 million and is listed by Reuveni Real Estate. Era is being developed by Adam America Real Estate and Northlink Capital and is anticipated to be completed by spring of 2022

In a bold return to pre-war layouts, Era’s residences offer defined, independent spaces separated formally by corridors and foyers. The homes feature nine-foot six-inch ceilings, white oak flooring, custom doors and moldings, Bosch washer and dryers, and multi-zone HVAC systems. The penthouses feature crema delicato marble cladded fireplaces.

Era’s kitchens are all about the details and feature honed crema delicato marble countertops with matching range hood and custom Italian cabinetry by Aster Cucine. A statement island wrapped in waterfall marble counters and striking singette papyrus mosaic marble backsplashes is the focal point for many of the kitchens. Undermount quartz sinks sprout Waterworks polished nickel fixtures and Gaggenau appliances offset bespoke glass encased walnut display cabinets. Select residences feature Gaggenau wine coolers and polished nickel pot fillers.

The primary bathrooms include honed Calacatta Gold and thassos mosaic flooring, Calacatta Gold marble slab walls and countertops, and custom white lacquer oak vanities. Oversized showers are finished with polished nickel rain showerheads and infinity drains. Bath tubs are the centerpiece of the room, with most primary baths featuring either undermounted tubs with a cove-lit Calacatta Gold marble ledge or Waterworks oval freestanding tubs. Every detail is accounted for: Duravit floor mounted toilets, Waterworks polished nickel fixtures, and even radiant floor heating.

Designed from envelope to interiors by ODA, Era features a striking cantilever design that is progressive with a purpose: growing as it ascends to allow for more open views, expansive common spaces, and generously sized residences, most with at least two exposures. Once complete, Era will offer 57 residences consisting of two- to five-bedroom homes, with select homes offering private outdoor terraces. The remaining residences range in size from approximately 1,252 to 3,444 square feet, with asking prices starting at approximately $2.625 million for a two-bedroom home to $13.1 million for a five-bedroom home.

Penthouse A, a five-bedroom residence with an asking price of $13.5 million, is in contract for a record-breaking price per-square-foot. Penthouse A boasts more than 3,500 square feet of interior space and more than 1,000 square feet of private outdoor space. The contract marks the highest price per-square-foot ever achieved for a condo above 88th Street in Manhattan. The remaining four-bedroom penthouse has yet to be released.

Emanating the upscale and intimate feel of a private club, the building’s generous amenities include a rare rooftop pool with recreational and lounge areas; 24-hour concierge with a grand double-height lobby and a stone clad curved staircase; fitness center and yoga studio; lounge; children’s playroom; youth room for gaming; music room; bike room; live-in superintendent; and pet grooming station. Private storage units are available for purchase.
