The Aston is the fourth in a series of 6th Avenue buildings Gotham constructed over a 4-year period, and the second project for the Adell Corporation. Rising 38 stories and housing just 269 units, this 285,000 sf, mixed-use property has 8 or fewer units per floor. The facade is clad in white brick with wide window walls. Every unit has corner windows and features bamboo plank flooring. Loft units offer 16’ ceilings and double height windows. The entrance is enhanced by a 2-story atrium and glass awning that unveils a lobby appointed with polished walnut finishes, brushed metal inlays, and backlit onyx marble slabs. The 2nd floor is devoted to the building’s amenities, which include a gym, 2 tenant lounges, business center, library, screening room, terrace, storage units, and bike storage. Also included are ground-floor retail, a parking garage, and roof terrace. The building does not have elevation setbacks, which enabled Gotham to pour concrete in half-day cycles, which dramatically sped up the topping out. Gotham achieved the first temporary certificate of occupancy in a 12-month period, considerably ahead of schedule.
