October 13, 2017— The Leasing Gallery for “Exhibit” at 60 Fulton Street is set to open in mid-October. The boutique development’s 120 residences offer stunning floor-to- ceiling windows with panoramic views of Manhattan’s cityscapes, bridges, rivers and beyond. Standing out from the Financial District’s rental building crowd, Exhibit offers private balconies or terraces on more than 70 percent of the apartments and a New York-centric private photography collection curated throughout the building.
“My goal is to always offer something different and fresh to the market,” points out Scott Aaron, principal at Socius Development Group. “Curating an entire rental building in New York hasn’t been done before. And it’s pure NYC, from the photographers to their subjects.”
Adam Heller, whose firm, Heller Organization, is marketing both the apartments and retail space at Exhibit, says, “We are thrilled to be part of such a unique and refreshing project for the area. Exhibit’s boutique size and emphasis on design really sets us apart from the competition.”
Prospective residents have been signing up for appointments at Exhibitdowntown.com after reading about the 23-story development and seeing renderings of its eclectic style. The thoughtfully designed studios (most with balconies) and one-bedroom residences offer gracious layouts, including several with home office alcoves. The spacious split two-bedroom apartments feature en-suite bathrooms and abundant closet space.
Adds Mr. Aaron, “My layout pet peeve is two-bedroom apartments where the bedrooms are back-to-back. Ours are all on opposite ends of the apartment and we’ve captured every possible space for closets.”
Exhibit’s kitchens feature rustic Italian cabinetry by Stevali, stone countertops, glass backsplashes, LED under-counter lighting, and stainless-steel appliances. In addition, the apartments boast Bosch washer/dryers, sustainable hypoallergenic wood floors, individually controlled heating and air-conditioning systems, and custom closet interiors.
But beyond the relaxed luxury and generous layouts, the project may be most notable for the curated photographic art exhibits on permanent display throughout the lobby, hallways and amenity areas. With candid images of such iconic artists and musicians as Jimi Hendrix, The Ramones and Jean-Michel Basquiat; shot by photographic giants of the 1970s and 1980s that include Allan Tannenbaum, Marc Weiss, Ricky Powell and David Godlis, Exhibit has been designed as a testimonial to Downtown’s most creative era.
The amenity spaces at the top of the building, designed by Andres Escobar, offer Exhibits’ residents their own Downtown Penthouse Club overlooking the city. They include The Parlor, an evocative space reminiscent of an elegant private club, with features that include custom billiards and poker tables, private storage for wines and spirits, and furnishings by Jimmie Martin of London. Next to it is The Lounge, showcasing more of Jimmie Martin’s designs, along with a grand fireplace and 24-foot-floor-to-ceiling windows looking north across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Surrounding the interior rooftop spaces is a landscaped terrace, with outdoor fireplace and screening area, that overlooks the entire City. Adjacent to The Lounge is the Residents Dining Club, presenting a different scale of entertaining with options that include a demonstration kitchen and private dining room with its own outdoor terrace space.
Lower level amenity spaces at Exhibit include a fitness center equipped with Peloton Spin Cycle stations and private yoga room. Exhibit also offers bike storage, a laundry room and private resident storage.
Dr. Steven Brauser, principal of The Parkland Group, and Exhibit’s co-developer, notes, “This beautiful building now stands on the land our parking garage occupied for over 30 years. As the Financial District continues its transformation into a vibrant live/work community, we look forward to welcoming our first residents.”
Designed for sophisticated living, the pet-friendly rental tower is ideally located close to the Fulton Street transportation hub, myriad corporate and financial firms, and media companies such as Conde Nast, Observer Publications and the Daily News. It is only two blocks from the South Street Seaport with its burgeoning nightlife and trend-setting dining destinations. Among the nearby restaurants that have recently opened or will be soon are Augustine, Fowler & Wells, Blue Ribbon Federal Grill, and Nobu Downtown (Broadway and Fulton Street). Exhibit is additionally near iPic Theaters, shopping at Brookfield Place and Westfield World Trade Center, and is across the street from the Fulton Market.
