Fredrik Eklund, star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing, and the Eklund | Gomes Team at Douglas Elliman are launching sales today at FÖRENA, a Scandinavia-inspired boutique condo at the intersection of Downtown Manhattan’s most interesting neighborhoods – The Village, Chelsea, Meatpacking, Flatiron, and Union Square. Designed inside and out by Morris Adjmi, and named for the Swedish word for “unity,” the 12-story boutique condo features fluid layouts, interiors designed with a calm palette, and hand-crafted materials that add warmth and durability.
Featuring a collection of one- to three-bedroom homes, FÖRENA attracts attention with a grey brick façade, chamfered custom metal framed window surrounds, and layers of cascading terraces. This authentic and contextual architecture gives way to a serene lobby, providing an instant respite from the streetscape and a transition from the outside world into the thoughtfully designed airy and soothing homes above.
Amenities are centered around wellness and relaxation, including a light-filled fitness center outfitted with Technogym equipment, a landscaped rooftop with an outdoor kitchen and dining space, and a lush Zen Garden for a meditative escape. The building also offers a bike room and extra storage is available for purchase.
This Scandinavia-inspired boutique condo is mere moments from the iconic green spaces at nearby Union Square Park, Washington Square Park and Madison Square Park, while extensive public transportation options lead to anywhere in the city.
Pricing begins at $1.3M, with building completion expected in 2021.
