Dear Reader,

Welcome to our November Real Estate issue.

Throughout the pages of this issue, we explore development projects that truly transcend the condominium status quo.

On the cover we have one of the most charming residential enclaves in Manhattan: 40 East End Avenue. A modern interpretation of the area’s historic architecture, the 20-story tower features 28 bespoke residences comprising half- and full-floor, two-to-five-bedroom homes, a maisonette with its own private courtyard and outdoor kitchen, and a duplex penthouse with a private rooftop terrace.

Best wishes to you,

Selcen Kavruklar
