New details about the Brodsky Organization’s 135 East 79th Street come from a teaser site for the 19-story, 32-unit residential property — and it hints at the kinds of tenants that Brodsky envisions living there. According to Curbed, brokers and buyers are being asked about their unit-size preferences, with options ranging from two to five bedrooms. Prices are to range from $6.8 million to more than $20 million, Curbed said.

Designed by William Sofield, the property is also a throwback to vintage city styles. According to the Brodsky site, the property “echoes the grand apartment towers that made the city famous” and “was conceived, designed and built with the passionate attention to detail that was once common in this city, but is now depressingly rare.”

As previously reported, Brodsky purchased the building for $65 million in 2008 from Hunter College. The building previously housed Hunter’s school of social work.

Daniel Brodsky said he hoped the building’s units would attract the likes of families who would want to enroll their children in nearby prestigious schools. [Curbed]
