Famous architect, Michael Graves, designed The Impala as his first residential tower in New York City in 2000. Michael Graves is a wide-spanning designer, well known for some of his architectural designs at Disney World, but he also has his named stamped on many useful kitchen gadgets and accessories. Located at 404 east 76th Street, this building’s simple design with red brick, and oodles of windows revealed in white.
The elegance of the grand entry rotunda demands attention toward the serene Impala statue, after which the building was named. Past the lobby is a 15,000 square foot courtyard boasting another fourteen impala statues. The courtyard is more of a refreshing garden complete with a fountain where residents may choose to linger outdoors to soak up some serenity in the midst of the busy city.
As a condo building housing 194 units, The Impala should be slightly easier to buy into than a co-op might be, making it an attractive option for apartment buyers. Also, should the owner choose to rent out the apartment in the future, this is a much simpler process which does not require board approval, providing flexibility for decision making on the part of the unit owner.
