Halcyon, a residential tower under development at 305 East 51st Street, has reached its final height of 33 stories.

The property will include 123 one- to four-bedroom condominiums as well as more than 10,000 square feet of amenities on the buildings 21st and 22nd floors. The building is scheduled for completion in early 2015. More than 60 percent of the building’s apartments are currently under contract.

“We are excited to celebrate this major milestone in the development of Halcyon,” Ziel Feldman, founder and managing principal of HFZ Capital Group, said in a joint statement from the developers. “To own a home at Halcyon is an incredible opportunity in today’s market. The building is leading a wave of new development in Midtown East which has become one of the most dynamic residential neighborhoods in the city.”

The building, with its glass and bronze window wall and limestone base, is designed by SLCE Architects.

Architecture and interior design firm S. Russell Groves is incorporating sophisticated materials and luxurious finishes into the design of Halcyon, including walnut paneling, travertine flooring and brushed bronze accents. Residences will feature 10-foot ceilings, oak wood flooring, double-paned energy efficient windows, top-of-the-line kitchen appliances, and sleek spa-like master bathrooms with honed marble and brushed bronze fixtures.

A four-bedroom condo in the building spans 3,563 square feet, with four-and-a-half bathrooms, and 1,365 square feet of private outdoor space. It’s listed for $11,750,000.

Common amenities include a 52 foot indoor swimming pool, a health and fitness center with a Movement Studio, a cedar-lined sauna, an Aqua Spa inspired by a Turkish hammam and a spa treatment room. A children’s playroom and a library will be located on the second floor. – Claire Moses
