The Anthem

What comes to mind when you imagine a full-service, white-glove building in Manhattan? Probably the august Upper East Side, and the kind of cloistered, opulent home you might be able to afford sometime after the middle of your career.

You’re probably not thinking “modern design,” “Murray Hill,” “young professionals,” or “affordable.” But that’s only because you’re not thinking of The Anthem.

The Anthem is a unique building in New York City: It offers spacious apartments with modern finishes, top-of-the-line services, and luxury amenities, at prices that are within reach for the young professionals and upwardly mobile couples. And it’s not hidden away, either—a step outside The Anthem brings the city to your feet.

A standard of excellence

With services like dry cleaning, laundry and tailoring, personal shopping, private catering, housekeeping, and more, The Anthem sets a high standard for Manhattan apartment living. All of the residences, which range from studios to three-bedroom apartments, feature kitchens with Absolute Black granite countertops and stainless steel appliances; marble baths; Oyster Grey strip oak flooring; custom double-hung, walk-in closets, and multi-port home networking.

Select residences also include wood-burning fireplaces, a washer and dryer, corner windows, and private terraces offering spectacular views of Murray Hill, allowing you to take in the beauty of your new neighborhood from the tranquility of your home.

The building itself was designed to showcase common spaces. There’s a rooftop garden with stunning city views, lush landscaping, and shaded walking paths lined with trellises. Have health and fitness goals (and who doesn’t)? You’ll enjoy the 8,000-square-foot gym, with personal training, free weights, circuit training, and “cardio theater”—individual televisions on the treadmills.

Other building amenities include a tenants’ lounge, conference room, and a children’s playroom. With seven elevators, The Anthem is fully accessible, and you’ll never be waiting long in the lobby. The services include a 24-hour porter, white-glove doorman, on-site parking, package service, and complimentary breakfast, and Cambridge Valet & Cleaners offers French dry cleaning, laundry and tailoring, and a uniformed housekeeping service.

Step outside and into the city

With all of these perks in-house, we’d understand if you seldom ventured outside the building. But The Anthem’s location in prime Murray Hill—just south of Grand Central, and north of Gramercy—means residents are surrounded by some of the city’s best shopping, dining, theater, and more, plus iconic New York City landmarks, including the New York Public Library, the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, the Morgan Library & Museum, and Bryant Park.

This central location puts the city at your doorstep, and the quiet, tree-lined blocks of residential Murray Hill give the area a tight-knit, neighborhood feel. It also makes walking a pleasant escape from the hustle of Midtown, with the East River Esplanade less than two blocks away.

For those who need to travel farther afield, the 6 train is a block away at 33rd St, and Grand Central Station and Herald Square are a short distance away.
