Finding luxurious, family-sized apartments at great values on the Upper East Side can be a daunting task. Yet that’s exactly what families will find at Azure, a 34-story amenity-rich high-rise cooperative with condo-type bylaws located at 333 East 91st Street on the corner of First Avenue.

“Azure is at the vanguard of a new way of family living in Manhattan,” says Douglas MacLaury, senior vice president of The Mattone Group, one of the building’s joint developers along with The DeMatteis Organizations. “It’s a property that offers so much at such exceptional value.”

Azure was developed as a public-private partnership with the Educational Construction Fund (a public purpose entity controlled by the city of New York). In exchange for building a new public school at no cost to the Educational Construction Fund and the city of New York, Azure received bonus air rights allowing for a taller building and an enhanced value that is passed on to purchasers of homes at Azure. This resulted in the ability to offer lower prices than other comparable luxury high-rise residential buildings on the Upper East Side, as well as a new location for MS 114 (a.k.a. East Side Middle), one of the best middle schools in the city.

Residences at Azure feature floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of the East River and downtown Manhattan; Brazilian Afromosia flooring; Viking appliances and Bosch washers and dryers. The building also includes over 6,300 square feet of amenity space, including a children’s playroom, a teen lounge with pool and foosball tables and Internet access, a fully-equipped athletic facility, a 24-hour concierge and valet service, a Fresh Direct cold storage facility and more. From the seventh floor up, each unit boasts a corner location. The spacious layouts feature eat-in kitchens, bedrooms tucked into quiet corners, and plenty of closets.

“The location is in a quieter residential neighborhood; it does not have the congestion of commercial traffic at your front door,” MacLaury says. “The unit sizes are generous throughout the building—we have the largest four bedrooms in a new construction building available on the Upper East Side.”

The Azure has also become known for customizing units to best fit the needs of its families; often, larger spaces are created by combining units. “What we have done and continued to do since the building has opened is accommodate larger families,” MacLaury says.

And families are responding favorably. “I am so impressed with the facilities and number of options we have in the common areas, and everything is top of the line,” says Esty Abadi, a recent buyer at Azure. “From the cozy lobby entrance to the efficient and helpful staff, we have everything the most luxurious buildings offer.”

Just steps outside Azure, the family-friendly Upper East Side doesn’t skip a beat. Home to some of the best public and private schools in the city, the neighborhood also boasts stellar recreational spaces like Carl Schurz Park and Asphalt Green, not to mention great restaurants and shopping as well as close proximity to Museum Mile.
