  1. SPEEDY MOVE-IN. Purchasing a new home brings a myriad of conflicting feelings. On the one hand buyers are typically excited for their new real estate venture, yet, on the other end of the spectrum is the monotony of move-in and the seemingly arduous days (or months) that the process entails. Fortunately, 100 Barclay gives buyers the option to forgo this step: residences are ready for immediate occupancy. If you’re ready to move in right after the logistics are signed off, you can move into your New York abode without a delay, greeting the residents who are already happily living in the stunning building.

2. DELUXE AMENITIES. Whether your needs are grand or more simplistic, 100 Barclay’s 40,000-square-foot property is rife with posh amenities that will make your second home the most ideal getaway. Just in time for the approaching summer heat, jump from your LA pool to 100 Barclay’s luxurious 82-foot lap pool and separate children’s pool. The building also houses a state-of-the-art fitness center designed by The Wright Fit. If weight and cardio are not your fitness go-tos, 100 Barclay also includes a yoga and pilates studio to satisfy your LA fitness needs. After your workout–ideally with a glass of wine in hand–bask in the picture-perfect urban skyline atop the club level, home to four landscaped terraces. The amenities 100 Barclay offers are seemingly endless, and those sunrise-to-sunset views allow no room for dissatisfaction.

5. LOFT-LIKE LAYOUTS. In a city where buildings are crammed next to each other in a close-knit manner, the architects at 100 Barclay understand that their residents need their space in the urban hubbub of New York City. The generously proportioned loft-like layouts provide that space with either a den and/or a home office. If you feel your spatial needs still aren’t met, take a look up at the 10-foot ceilings or peer out of the residence’s double-hung windows, and soon enough you’ll feel as if you’re living large.
