LEED-certified apartments are valued highly in Manhattan. The Lucida is not only LEED certified but also features low-VOC finishes, an ambitious recycling campaign, and a quality air-filtration system. With easy access to a number of mass transit options, the Lucida is one of the more environmentally friendly apartments.
The Lucida offers residents the opportunity to customize their apartments, making them uniquely their own. This means each apartment is going to feature fixtures and colors based on residents’ personal preferences. There are some uniform designs throughout the building, and these include large floor-to-ceiling windows, to allow for ample sunshine, and cherry-stained solid oak floors.
Each gourmet kitchen will provide residents with energy-efficient state-of-the-art appliances. The overall look of the kitchen is entirely dependent on residents’ choices in floor plans and their personal preferences. The bathrooms at the Lucida feature cast-iron soaking tubs surrounded by marble floors with stone accents.
151 East 85th Street offers amenities including a 24-hour doorman and concierge service. The children’s playroom is a convenience, especially for those residents who opt to use the Lucida’s fitness center and swimming pool. The amenities also include a private wine cellar and a rooftop sundeck. The landscaping associated with the building is all irrigated with recycled rainwater, keeping with the green theme.
