The Lucida, the Upper East Side’s first LEED-certified condominium, was designed by Cook+Fox and boasts a stunning glass facade that makes every unit in the building delightfully sun-drenched. With only 110 units in the 20-floor high-rise, the building is exceedingly private and the units, which range in size from two to five bedrooms, are wonderfully spacious.
Conveniently located in the vicinity of some of Manhattan’s best schools, Museum Mile, restaurants, boutiques, gourmet groceries, parks, delis, and cafés, the Lucida is perfect for those looking for privacy and calm amidst all of the city’s bustle. In addition, it’s near the 4, 5, and 6 trains as well as buses going in every direction. This building has truly set the standard in modern green living with everything from water efficiency – landscaping designed with rainwater collection and preservation in mind, for example – to the building’s mechanical systems which were designed for optimum energy performance. The Lucida also boasts filtered air and indoor materials that emit fewer pollutants, all of which provide healthier living. In addition, light-colored roofing materials provide residents with a cooler living environment. A true diamond of a find, The Lucida provides modern amenities, spacious living quarters, and the gift of a more healthful living environment. Every apartment in The Lucida is sun-filled and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows along with 10-foot ceilings. Luscious chocolate-stained solid oak floors, and master bathrooms with marble floors, and maple and bamboo marble-topped vanities along with soaking tubs and rain showers, round out some of the luxurious details. Some units additionally boast terraces and balconies. Building highlights: LEED-certified “green”, full-time doorman, fully-equipped fitness center, spa center, indoor pool, lounge, catering kitchen for private events, indoor playground designed by Kidville, NY, private wine cellar, and a bicycle storage room.
