In a city where more is almost always more, residential developers are doubling up on their master suite offerings in new developments.

Such requests come from varied types of buyers, brokers told the New York Post, from mothers and daughters in need of space to couples with competing work schedules. Walker Tower offered four condominiums with double master suites, which were quickly snapped up at the full $12 million and $13 million asking prices, and Manhattan House at 200 East 66th Street configured double master suites out of what were previously side-by-side apartments.

“The surging demand from our clients [for double master suites] has been very pronounced,” Tom Postilio of Core, which represents a townhouse property on East 63rd Street with two master bedrooms, told the Post. “It appears as if this growing trend will soon become mainstream, as the way we co-habitate continues to evolve.”

Hot on the heels of the double master trend is a rising interest in more his-and-her bathrooms, the Post reported. Macklowe Properties created such large bathroom suites in The Forthcoming 737 Park Avenue, and Jared Kushner’s Puck building holds six new loft-like penthouses with his-and-her bathrooms in each master suite.

“It never even occurred to us not to do dual master bathrooms,” Kushner told the Post. “We approached the design of this project as if we were building six custom, one-off private homes.” [NYP]Julie Strickland
