LOWER EAST SIDE — Luxury condos are now up for grabs at controversial waterfront development One Manhattan Square, beginning at $1.15 million for a one-bedroom, the Extell Development Company has announced.

The 80-story tower, currently on the rise at 252 South St. near Rutgers Street and slated for completion in late 2019, will contain 815 luxury residences, including condos ranging from one to three bedrooms and a penthouse going for $13 million.

The towering development will also include a host of luxury amenities, including an in-house cigar room, bar and demonstration kitchen.

A multi-level fitness center will hold three swimming pools, a bowling alley, a full-size basketball court, golf simulators, a squash court and a yoga studio, while a spa will offer private treatment rooms, a courtyard, and a "relaxation garden."

Residents with children will get to enjoy a cinema, performance center, children's playroom, and an arcade geared for teenagers. 

Landscaped green spaces will include "intimate garden rooms" and a "tea pavilion," in addition to an outdoor kitchen, outdoor courtyards, lounges, fire pits, and a tree house.

The growing development has angered longtime waterfront locals, particularly tenants of the neighboring Two Bridges Towers at 82 Rutgers Slip, who say the construction has already damaged their homes and blocked their sunlight.

Extell is also building an adjacent 13-story building for below-market-rate tenants, which will contain 205 units ranging from studios to two-bedrooms.

Listings of units for sale and corresponding prices are available on the One Manhattan Square website.
