The luxe Carlton House is about to get more chic. Gary Barnett’s Extell Development has entered into an exclusive partnership with high-end retailer Barneys New York – the store’s first-ever collaboration with a developer — to offer building residents bonus amenities, according to an Extell release.

The 275,000-square-foot store is located at 660 Madison Avenue, next door to the Carlton House, a 68-unit condominium development where apartments are on sale starting at $3.15 million.

The deal, in part, gives building residents access to personal stylists, private shopping events, home delivery of in-store purchases, as well as lunch and dinner delivery from the store’s famed eatery Fred’s.

“Barneys is synonymous with chic, sophisticated living, and we knew that this collaboration would perfectly fit the aesthetic of the buyers we’ve been seeing every day in our sales boutique,” said Tamar Rothenberg, vice president of marketing at Extell, in the release.

Barnett paid $164 million for the Carlton House site in 2010, and alongside hedge fund partner Angelo Gordon & Company, is investing over $350 million in it, as previously reported.

Thor Equities recently purchased a block-long retail space at the property for a whopping $277 million, as previously reported. –Zachary Kussin
