Hamptons allure, named after a pond – the little froggies should be picketing the association with this clumsy effort.

I guess we now know where those Goldman Sachs bonuses are going.

A new luxury condo building for New York’s Upper East Side 

Georgica is a new 20 storey glass condo building located on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Named after a pond in the Hamptons, the project promotes a privileged lifestyle to families who covet the neighbourhood's excellent schools, fine restaurants and world class museums.

Designed by Cetra/Ruddy, the building contains 58 apartments, ranging from two to four bedrooms, with no more than four to a floor. They offer more space, more natural light and more amenities than comparable properties.

The building is sheathed in bronze and clear glass and is animated with many setbacks and protrusions that create an abundance of corner rooms with multiple exposures. While this strategy results in the architecture being a bit busy, it also makes for apartments that have incomparable views. The interiors, too, are spot on gorgeous and have a sophisticated modern feel.

Spacious living rooms with neutral toned walls, white oak herringbone floors, and fireplaces open onto dining areas and kitchens that feature Miele appliances and expansive pantries. The bedrooms are roomier than most with master suites that have private terraces, spa-like baths and separate sitting areas. An expansive roofdeck with a performance area for kids and a large entertainment area for families equipped with an outdoor kitchen and screening room completes the project.

With three bedroom units starting at $2.2 million, the building is good value for the neighbourhood.
