Three months after leasing commenced,
the 53-story, 338-unit Continental at 885 Sixth Avenue is 50 percent
leased, according to Citi Habitats, the exclusive marketing and leasing
firm for the building.
The studios and one- and two-bedroom units are renting from $2,960 to
more than $6,800. The Costas Kondylis-designed building, owned by Tower 111 LLC,
includes a health and fitness center with a 50-foot infinity edge lap
pool, on-site parking, a catering kitchen and a gaming room (note: clarification appended). The
Continental is one of two new rental developments in the area marketed
by Citi Habitats; the other is the rental portion of the Eventi Hotel
called the Beatrice.
“We are thrilled with the Continental’s success thus far, especially
considering it was achieved through the drudges of this winter’s awful
weather,” said Clifford Finn, managing director of new development
marketing for Citi Habitats. “We could not have accomplished this
without the project’s quality construction and pristine amenities,
including The Only Pool On The Sixth Avenue corridor, as well as its
convenient and increasingly dynamic location.” The firm cites the growing attractions along Sixth Avenue in the west 20s and
30s, including a new Trader Joe’s between 21st and 22nd streets, Eventi’s Food Parc and
La Pomme nightclub at 26th Street, off of Sixth Avenue, as big draws for prospective residents. TRD
