Available listings range from $4.3 million for a 2-bedroom, 2.5-bath to $18.9 million for a half-floor 5-bedroom, 6.5-bath. All homes have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking stunning river and skyline views, interiors by AD100 designer David Mann, and utility closet with washer and vented dryer. Custom Molteni kitchens are outfitted with marble island, cerused white oak cabinetry, and top-of-the-line appliances. Master suites have walk-in closet and bath with radiant heated floors, marble slab double vanity, and freestanding tub. All secondary bedrooms have en-suite baths.
