VU’s light and airy interiors are carefully crafted by renowned interior designer Paris Forino to complement soaring ceilings and panoramic city and East River views. Living spaces in soothing neutral tones with handsome accents create a sophisticated aesthetic. Kitchens at VU imbue a feeling of comfort and convenience. Appointed in a sophisticated and light palette of natural materials such as marble, bleached oak, and white lacquer, outfitted with Miele appliances, they are a chef’s dream. Spacious primary bathrooms feel like a tranquil spa getaway with walls clad in oversized soft white marble tiles and an intricate mosaic floor pattern comprising of three different marbles. Sinks and showers are complimented by The Grace Collection, Paris Forino’s custom line of faucets and fixtures for Waterworks in polished chrome, produced exclusively for VU New York.
Designed by SLCE architects, the facade radiates a refined palette of oyster white and warm bronze detailing, a modern compliment to the historically rich neighborhoods that surround it. At 36 stories, the tower punctuates the city skyline and stands tall overlooking Manhattan’s East Side. The architecture celebrates New Age Modernism, a design approach that emphasizes a contemporary aesthetic with clean lines, bronze embellishments, and sculpted chevron details. Oversized windows put the city on full display, and special attention was put into creating residences that maximize natural light wherever possible.
With a full floor of vitality and entertaining amenities, VU provides residents with a variety of offerings that are designed to enhance the quality of everyday living. From the fitness center to the screening room, to the lounge and the pantry, Paris Forino designed each space with thoughtful intention toward how New Yorkers live today.
The beauty of VU’s attended lobby resides in the subtle refinements of European white oak paneling paired with honed Palladium travertine floors. High up on the 36th floor sits the rooftop terrace, where lush greenery and plush furniture invite you to take in unrivaled city views.
