The Smile

New images and marketing material from The Smile. Luxury at Lex/126.

The design of the building slopes inward as it rises upward, providing great views of the Harlem River and Manhattan skyline. The cantilevering footprint over 125th Street allows for a mix of apartment sizes layouts, while the facade’s interlocking checkerboard pattern gives every unit floor-to-ceiling windows.

“The homes rise above and beyond the Gotham Retail Plaza, cantilevering over to 125th street as it captures the views and sunlight from the south,” Ingels said in a statement. “The Smile is designed for the desires of Harlem’s residents of today – joining the diverse Harlem neighborhood, integrating wellness amenities and offering generous roof gardens.”

The Smile will officially launch leasing this summer, led by Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing. According to a new teaser site, availabilities include $2,299/month studios, $2,795/month one-bedrooms, and $3,814/month two-bedrooms, with concessions of up to 3 months free rent on a 15-month lease.
