An inate feeling, an almost palpable sense of panache about this exclusive midtown village in the heart of the metropolis. Of chic ristorantes and decadent chocolatiers. Of priceless antiques, fine cashmere and high thread counts. Of sun-kissed patios and intriguing laneways. Of velvet ropes opened with knowing nods. Of abundant green parks or the perfect accent lighting. Of chic style and the clarity of diamonds. Of the tradition of high tea or an exceptional rare vintage. Of haute couture and fine cuisine. Of laughter, smiles and intriguing conversations.

That attitude encompasses a passion for culture, cuisine, couture, architecture and decor. Because of the Yorkville Condominiums’ proximity to “the best restaurants, top chefs and high-end shopping,” Brown anticipates there will be demand to live there.
