The Brompton: where classic and contemporary blend beautifully on Manhattan's Upper East Side

The Brompton, developed by Related Companies, is their latest collaboration with celebrated architect, Robert A.M. Stern. It is the evolution of a long-standing commitment of the two firms to classic design and beautifully proportioned contemporary homes with lasting value. At 205 East 85th Street, in the heart of Manhattan's Upper East Side, the 22-story Brompton has a timeless quality that transcends value, character and permanence. Its collection of elegantly styled residences of studio to five bedroom condominiums with contemporary appointments and exceptional amenities satisfy a wide range of lifestyles.

A Gothic-inspired red brick and limestone facade provides the framework for generously proportioned layouts and richly detailed interiors. Robert A. M. Stern's vision for the lobby includes a dramatic arched entranceway with cherry wood paneling and elegant marble floors that traverses through a series of two landscaped courtyards for added light and ambiance. The Brompton's exquisitely designed kitchens enjoy all the conveniences of a modern home. Highlights include latte-color wood cabinetry, Cotto D'Este porcelain flooring and Quartzite countertops with rich mosaic tile backsplashes. Viking Veso stainless steel wall ovens and wine coolers, Sub-Zero fully integrated wood paneled refrigerators and Miele fully integrated wood paneled dishwashers are standard.

The Brompton's striking baths seamlessly blend a stunning array of materials for a soothing and indulgent experience. The master baths feature Calacatta Sponda marble flooring with inlaid marble accents, marble vanities and six-foot soaking tubs. Secondary baths feature rich Bottocino Super Light marble flooring along with an exquisite Maroto Oro Toscano marble vanity with white-lacquered wood custom cabinetry and white undermount bathtub and sink.

Unparalleled amenities include membership and privileged access to Fitness Lifestyle by Equinox, in addition to an entertainment lounge with outdoor terrace, a children's playroom outfitted by Dragons' of Walton Street in London with adjacent outdoor play area, and the ease and convenience of 24-hour concierge and doorman service. In addition, all residences are fully wired with an integrated technology system for high speed internet, cable, and voice and data distribution outlets.

The Brompton enjoys a premium location in one of the city's most established and coveted residential neighborhoods. The Upper East Side is home to world-renowned museums, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Cooper Hewitt and Guggenheim, among others, and many of the finest public and private schools. Stylish boutiques, specialty stores, art and antiques galleries, world class dining and gourmet food stores are well placed throughout, and parks and recreation centers abound.

Embracing Upper East Side values by blending the best in traditional and contemporary styles, The Brompton offers a timeless quality that transcends and presents an enduring lifestyle that is always "Stylishly Proper." The residences at The Brompton are scheduled for Fall 2008 occupancy.
