The Beekman RegentNew York City

Thank you for eight years of residential bliss...

The Beekman is simply perfect…location, amenities, staff and finish. I love it there and I am sad to relocate. You have been a good friend and landlord…it doesn’t get better than that! Wishing you and your family the healthiest and happiest New Year and a warm and enjoyable Holiday.

Best Regards,

The Beekman Regent is one of the finest...

buildings I have proudly represented since its inception. Being int he real estate business for more than 25 years I know when I walk my clients into the lobby they are immediately impressed, not only with the gracious and elegant lobby but with the attentive and cordial staff. Upon viewing the residences, my clients have been further impressed by details that are rarely seen in the industry. The richly appointed details are many; high ceilings with thick crown moldings, large windows and doors with outstanding hardware, wonderful kitchens and bathrooms, abundant closets, etc, etc. The building offers a wide variety of floor palns with many units having sensational river and city scape views. The building is immaculately maintained right down to the fitness center and garage. It is no wonder past placed resients have happily returned after calling me up and asking “is there anything available at The Beekman Regent?”

We wanted to let you and your staff know...

what a great four years we had living at the Beekman Regent. Besides the apartment being spacious and well appointed, every need we had was attended to in a timely fashion.

We are going to miss the building and the entire staff.

I first got to know Dennis Herman...

over 20 years ago, after he completed his project on East 88h Street and when he was beginning work on The Beekman Regent. Dennis, unlike so many people, does what he says he will do. So when he hired two of my top agents to run sales at the new building, I knew they would both have a quality product and a reasonable boss. And even now, many years later, the building holds up beautifully in this era of ultra-luxury condos. The ceilings are high, the construction solid, the room sizes generous, and the layouts well-planned and well executed. Like Dennis, the building remains a class act.

My husband and I would like to thank you...

for the extremely positive experience we have had living in the Beekman Regent. The staff is unparalleled. Since we first moved in five years ago, they have been nothing but welcoming, courteous and attentive to our needs. In fact, they have often gone above and beyond the call of duty. When we need something fixed, the response is immediate. The few times we needed to hire someone from the outside for painting, dishwasher repair, etc., we received excellent recommendations from the building manager and the concierge.

Our friends, many of whom also grew up in luxury buildings in Manhattan, have complimented us both on the friendliness of the staff and the design of the building.

We look forward to many more happy years in the Beekman Regent.

I have been a residential real estate broker...

in New York for nearly fifteen years. When The Beekman Regent launched I quickly took the opportunity to visit the latest and most sought after new development. I found the design of the building to be timeless and the finishes to be like nothing I had seen before in new construction.

It is always a pleasure to see the reaction on a prospective tenant’s face upon entering either, the Loft, Townhouse or Penthouse apartments at the Beekman Regent.

If I were relocating my parents or any friends within Manhattan, The Beekman Regent would be one of our first stops.

My professional career in Real Estate...

has rewarded me the privilege of touring the most upscale and exclusive residences New York City has to offer. Having represented clients in The Beekman Regent since the building’s inception, I can say the homes are unlike any other. Superior layouts combined with a classical aesthetic and modern sophistication conceive what truly are timeless and elegant homes, so rarely found amongst today’s inventory of newer construction. a truly divine building to call home.

''It is truly a very special place''

April 3, 2017 I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed my past 3 ½ years living at the Beekman Regent and I will truly miss what I have come to call “my home”. The apartments are world class – very gracious and spacious and the building maintains a very homey and intimate feeling. When you walk into a Beekman apartment you don’t feel like you are walking into an apartment but rather a warm and inviting residence. It is truly a very special place. But what really sets this building apart from most is the exceptional staff. Everyone aims to please and always with a smile on their face. In all my years of living in New York City I have never experienced a level of service as I have living in this building. I know this quality of excellence comes from the top, the owner of the building, Dennis Herman, who in my time here I have come to know and can now call my friend. I will miss everyone at the Beekman Regent and will certainly stop in to say hi when I am passing by the neighborhood. Debbie Cooper

''Developer on top of world with redevelopment''

For the first time in 35 years, a New York City building has won the prestigious Mercedes Benz Property Award as the “Finest International Redevelopment in the World.” The honor has been bestowed on developer Dennis Herman’s The Beekman Regent, situated at 351 East 51st Street. The one-of-a-kind landmarked condominium residence, which sits atop the handsomely restored facade of a former turn-of-the-century schoolhouse, received the accolade for combining pre-war ambiance with what may well be the most diverse mix of 64 luxury residences ever created for one Manhattan building. “It is a great privilege for us to be honored for our dedication to excellence, quality of construction and attention to detail,” said developer Dennis A. Herman of Beekman International Center, LLC. “Preserving the building’s Romanesque revival facade of wine brick and stone cast markings, originally created by George W. Debevoise in 1890, while time consuming, was an important component in creating this luxurious high-rise residence.” That structure, whose four-story facade was painstakingly preserved during the building’s demolition, served as the home of various schools during the past century, including PS 35, PS 135 and the United Nations School, and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, Mr. Herman noted. This latest award adds to the building’s history of recognition, which includes being one of a select few Manhattan homes classified as “the best apartments that money can buy” by WNBC’s Jane’s New York earlier this year. The Beekman Regent was also named “one of the finest new developments in New York” by London-based International Homes magazine. New York Living has called The Beekman Regent “one of New York’s most luxurious residences” and Yale Robbins rated the building “one of the top two condominiums in New York” in its March 2003 publication. The 20-story condominium (equivalent to 28 floors in a typical building) features unique layouts representing four design concepts–loft-like residences, townhouses, classic residences and penthouses. Occupancy began back in Spring 2002 and, while most of the building’s homes have been spoken for, with the exception of just a handful of residences, its 10 loft-like homes–also known as The Private Reserve–are just now being introduced to the market. These spacious homes, ranging from 1,824 to 3,170 square feet, feature towering 14-foot coffered ceilings with cove lighting, 12-inch triple crown moldings, 10-foot high windows in spectacular Romanesque shapes, 9-foot solid core doors, sweeping galleries, enormous onyx master bathrooms and extraordinary gourmet kitchens. Prices range from $2.9 to $6.6 million. Like the other residences at The Berkman Regent, The Private Reserve homes feature fine, European-inspired finishes such as 24-karat brushed Italian gold hardware. Whirlpool tubs in the master baths and top-of-the-line kitchen appliances underscore the developer’s commitment to fine living. The traditional European ambiance is also carded out in the building’s mahogany paneled lobby, which is highlighted by a Baccarat chandelier based on vintage design and original 18th century Italian artwork. The fully serviced building offers doorman and concierge service, a library/drawing room, on-site garage with valet parking, a 1,500-square-foot fitness center, private resident’s lounge where continental breakfast is served, storage rooms, bicycle and pram room and a wine cellar. Remarkably, The Beekman Regent’s 64 residences share four elevators, one of many exclusive elements that differentiate it from all other buildings of its size. Herman earned his reputation as a developer capable of recapturing the ambiance of New York’s golden prewar apartment era when he built the luxury tower at 60 East 88th Street in 1987 and is now continuing that tradition at The Beekman Regent.
