Today's Featured Building: Buckingham East

Exterior of Buckingham East

Buckingham East is a converted condominium building located at 225 East 86th Street in the Upper East Side enclave of Yorkville. The 13 story brick-clad building offers 60 different residences, many of which are two to three level duplex and loft-style condominium units, the majority of which have one or two bedrooms and also commonly offer private outdoor terraces.

The winter-garden (glass-enclosed) balconies are a unique feature in the building that are immediately obvious from the exterior and are often referred to as a solarium, creating wonderful working spaces in the interiors. The building offers a 24 hour doorman, common roof deck, bicycle room, and common laundry facility, with a live-in-resident manager.

Yorkville has a rich history that is culturally diverse, and was known to house many different cultural backgrounds including Hungarian, German, and Slovakian immigrants. As a result of this, there are many culture and historic buildings found in Yorkville. Recently expanding and experiencing a transformation into a high-rise luxury neighborhood, the area is now one of the most sought-after residential areas in the Upper West Side.[1]
