Today's Featured Building: Dunhill

The balconies of The Dunhill

Built on the former site of a supermarket in 1987, The Dunhill is a 29 story high-rise condominium development by Arun Bhatia, the principal of AIB Development Corporation, offering 88 residences that range in size. The structure was built with units that could be combined, many of which have since been combined to create larger, family-sized residences.

East 84th Street is a quiet, tree-lined street with one-way traffic that features many residential buildings, and eventually connects with Carl Schurz Park at the coast of the East River. The Gracie Mansion, which was built in 1799 as an official mayoral residence for New York City, is situated at Carl Schurz Park, and provides a common meeting spot for city officials.

Built on a corner lot at East 84th Street and First Avenue in Yorkville in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the building rests on a lot size of 6,133 square feet; Arun Bhatia acquired the site from a Spanish Group, who "got cold feet when they started to get into the New York market," according to Bhatia. The site belonged to a vacant supermarket for about seven years before Arun Bhatia brought his residential building plans to liven it up. The Dunhill contains some retail and office space, as well as its primary use of residential space, which combined takes up nearly 2,000 square feet of the building.

Many of the homes at The Dunhill boast private outdoor balconies or terraces with expansive views of the surrounding city, park, and river. Amenities offered at The Dunhill include a windowed, upper level fitness center, residents party room, large children’s playroom, common roof deck and central laundry room. There is also a full-time doorman to welcome residents home each day.[1]
