Amenities unveiled for The Suffolk at 55 Suffolk Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side


The Gotham Organization has unveiled new renderings of the amenity spaces at The Suffolk, a 378-unit residential tower at 55 Suffolk Street in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Dattner Architects and JG Neukomm Architecture, the 30-story tower spans 330,000 square feet and is a key part of the developer’s Broome Street Development.

Suffolk’s outdoor facilities include a rooftop pool deck and an outdoor deck with lounge chairs, fire pits and barbecue grills. Tenants also have access to a full-floor indoor amenities suite that includes coworking spaces, meeting rooms, a residents’ lounge, and a chef’s kitchen. There is also a fitness club and yoga studio, package room, resident storage, bike storage, laundry facilities and its own personal concierge.

“We wanted to design a building that would offer the best of modern living while embracing the rich history and diverse culture of the Lower East Side,” said Gotham Organization president David Picket. “Like all our buildings, The Suffolk serves as both a tribute to the neighborhood and a modern oasis for our future tenants.”

The mix of units includes standard-sized studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units, in addition to three floors of micro units. The micro units are the latest to debut under Abode by Gotham, a new housing concept from the developer conceived in response to shifting tenant preferences and changing market conditions. Each will measure between 315 and 350 square feet and feature a built-in Murphy bed, sofa and storage. Residents of Abode by Gotham residences have access to all building amenities under a club membership, as well as their own dedicated lounge, chef’s kitchen, tenant storage, and laundry facilities.


Each traditional unit features chrome appliances, an in-unit washer/dryer, quartz countertops and bathrooms, and wood-grain floors.

“We are proud to be a part of this project, which is an important part of the rebirth of this area of ​​the Lower East Side,” said Rem Garavito Bruhn, AIA, associate at Dattner Architects. “Bright and beautiful apartments, overlooking Lower Manhattan and the East River Bridges, are complemented by spacious amenities, landscaped terraces and small-scale retail along Broome Street, which will help activate this new commercial thoroughfare, benefiting the entire neighborhood. ”

The Suffolk is expected to debut this spring. When completed, the entire Broome Street Development will include two mixed-use buildings and create 493 new rental units, a new 40,000-square-foot community facility for the Sino-American Planning Council, a 4,000-square-foot cultural heritage center for Beth Hamedrash Hagodol, and 18,000-square-foot foot retail space.
