Eric Adjmi, CEO of Adjmi Apparel Group — which manufactures and distributes brands like Champion, Danskin and Fila — just picked up a duplex home for $16.84 million at the Leyton, a new development on the Upper East Side.
Located at 1059 Third Ave., it’s not exactly Park or Fifth, but the building does come with its own brandy room. The 36-story tower was built last year, designed by architect Manuel Glas with interiors by Frampton Co. and Champalimaud Design.
The condo, when combined, will be 6,132 square feet.
Originally listed for $18.1 million, Adjmi got a slight deal, according to property records, but he’s still taking a hit on his 19th-century Upper East Side townhouse. Adjmi bought that 20-foot-wide home, at 161 E. 63rd St., for $11.75 million in 2016. It’s now on the market for $11.25 million — down from its 2017 asking price of $14.75 million.
As for his new purchase, it consists of two separate condos on the 28th and 29th floors, and it has some sweet perks.
“This was a very unique opportunity to combine two full floors with several outdoor terraces overlooking Central Park,” said Robin Schneiderman, who’s heading sales and marketing at the building for Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing. The unit also looks out to the East River and the wider city skyline.
The building boasts two levels of amenity spaces — including that 24th-floor brandy room, as well as a cocktail terrace with Central Park views, and a dining room with a butler’s pantry and seats for 10. Additional amenities include a gym and access to BHB Private, a global concierge service along with a resident manager.
Adjmi’s neo-Greco Italianite-style townhouse, meanwhile, is almost as big. At 6,000 square feet, the six-story renovated home — built in 1870 — comes with six bedrooms, five bathrooms, three powder rooms and 1,798 square feet of outdoor space. There’s also a garden with white hydrangeas and a limestone patio — and a roof terrace with pear trees and an outdoor shower.
Original townhouse details include six fireplaces, herringbone parquet floors, crown moldings and 11-foot-high ceilings in the living room and library. The home opens with a staircase and a black-and-white marbled floor foyer that leads to a dining room, with double doors that open to the garden. There’s also a chef’s kitchen and, on the parlor level, a large living room with a fireplace, a coffered ceiling and a floor-to-ceiling casement window overlooking the garden.
The main bedroom takes up the third floor and comes with a fireplace and a landscaped terrace. Additional bedrooms are on the fourth and fifth floors.
Downstairs, the basement features a gym, a rec room, a temperature controlled wine room and storage.
