Need a new iPad — and a new pad? Keep your eyes out for five luxe full-floor units at 225 East 81st Street that will hit the market in the next few weeks, LLNYC has learned.

The three- and four-bedroom homes, with prices ranging from $3.5 million to $6 million, will be delivered smart: an iPad (included, of course) in each apartment will control such functions as the lights and the built-in speakers. Ryan Serhant, who along with Jenna Amicucci and his Nest Seekers International team, was tapped to lead sales here, couldn’t talk specifics in the lead-up to the official release, but he did mention that the homes will have coffered ceilings, fireplaces, private outdoor space and private storage. The building will also include a gym for residents.

“Each home is like a gorgeous high-end home you would find in the Hamptons,” Serhant said of the building, developed by a company that works on spec homes in the ritzy Long Island destination. “They build homes that they would want to personally live in and they personally understand luxury.”

The building, located between Second and Third avenues, is under construction and will be complete by the end of the year.

Michael Paul Enterprises is the project’s builder. The company also built the condominium project at 230 East 63rd Street, for which Serhant and Amicucci also handled sales. This six-unit building is now sold out, StreetEasy shows. — Zachary Kussin
