Ahead of next year’s occupancy date, guests got a sneak peek at the model apartments that were designed by Patricia Fisher and Edda Elias. The artistry and sensibility of Elias and Fisher served them both well as they created the sleek modern interiors for the residences at 70 Charlton.
Elias is known for her functional and versatile interiors, both classic and contemporary. Her firm has worked with some of the country’s most exclusive properties in locations like New York’s Upper West Side and Ocean Avenue in Miami. Elias’s model residence, 7F, is a light-filled 2-bedroom, 2-bath residence with gracious proportions and a flexible layout. Occupying 1,474 square feet, 7F was designed with a “split layout,” meaning that the bedrooms and private quarters sit to the right, while spaces for entertaining are to the left. There’s also triple exposure, with windows on three sides and views of 70 Charlton’s verdant interior courtyard. A large entry foyer opens onto the entertaining area, which includes a modern, open kitchen with a 9-foot breakfast bar. Adjacent to the kitchen is the living and dining area, which enjoys northern exposure. The master bedroom and its 5-fixture bathroom are sumptuously appointed, and a massive walk-in closet offers ample storage.
New York / East Hampton-based Patricia Fisher has been a frequent fixture in both Architectural Digest and Traditional Home. At 70 Charlton, Fisher lent her talents to residence 5D, an expansive 3-bedroom home with an inviting living and dining area at the center. The entryway opens onto the north-facing kitchen and dining area. The master suite, which comprises a large bedroom; two closets, one of which is walk-in; and a 5-fixture bath, is separate from the rest of the apartment. The addition of two more bathrooms and bedrooms, one of which is en suite, provides the flexibility to convert bedroom space into an office or library. One bedroom has pocket doors, too, making it an ideal guest room.
After a thorough immersion in the stunning work of Fisher and Elias, the evening’s focus turned to the many impressive amenities that will be available at 70 Charlton, including the 24-hour doorman, 60-foot indoor saltwater pool, and the private Residents’ Lounge that opens into the landscaped courtyard. The guests sipped wine and snacked on dumpling, short-rib lollipops, and handcrafted ice cream sandwiches while peering out of oversized windows into white-hot West SoHo. Once an artist enclave, the neighborhood is known today for its charming architecture and vibrant street life. It is New York City’s ultimate destination for fashion, food, and design.
