The Georgica--An Upper East Side Luxury Condominium That Combines Tranquility with Modern Design

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams NYC

The Georgica, located on 305 East 85th Street, takes its name from an East Hampton lake, Georgica Pond.  


The Georgica, ManhattanLocated on a tree-lined street in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, its glassed design is meant to inspire the “shimmering” effect of its namesake with “sublime composition.”  The building blends bronze, champagne and white to create a modern exterior and interior.


With only 58 residences and two to four apartments per floor, it offers space, privacy, contemporary design and outstanding amenities -- the ultimate Upper East Side property.  


Developed by the Ascend Group LLC and designed by CetraRuddy Inc., The Georgica has also supported The Nest, a non-profit organization that helps female-owned businesses/artists and artisans worldwide, by hosting benefits and creating awareness about the organization.  


The Georgica, ManhattanSpace, light and modern design, along with a 24-hour attended lobby, state-of-the-art fitness facility, Wii activity room and one of New York’s finest concierge, Abigail Michaels, the Georgica is a boutique building with meticulously-detailed finishes and a rooftop garden that offers residents panoramic views.  


Their landscape designer, H.M. White, has an impressive list of residential and commercial projects throughout New York.  The designs lend themselves to creating outdoor spaces that serve as “multi-functioning’ landscapes.  


That’s evident in the Georgica’s rooftop design; with bamboo hedges, tall flowering plants and Ipe decking with a summer kitchen and bar.  There’s also a  play area for children, intimate seating and an outdoor flatscreen television.  Definitely multi-functioning, with the added benefit of incredible views.The Georgica, Manhattan


The units themselves have beautiful and impeccable attention to detail, with floor-to-ceiling windows, sitting and dressing rooms and White Oak Herringbone floors.  The kitchens have Calacata Gold marble countertops, Miele appliances and wine coolers.  Baths have radiant heat marble floors, Kohler tubs, and Waterworks fixtures.  


Convenience to transportation, cultural hotspots and great schools have attracted families to this beautiful Upper East Side residence. 


With close access to the subway, Museum Mile, Central Park, Madison Avenue shopping, four hospitals and great schools, The Georgica is quiet, modern elegance and the perfect place to raise a family.

Reading your post brings back fond memories of my dad. He worked on most of the skyscrapers in Chicago and talked about them just like you did in your post. It's a good thing you have it in writing. I can't remember my father's stories and he's no longer alive.

It's really awesome to learn about a great city and you did an exceptional job. I've traveled to NY many times, but I never got to Manhattan. You portrait a beautiful city and I really appreciate all that you know about the city.
