Relaxed style is a way of life at the distinctive boutique residences at Whitney Modern. Combining historic New England charm with classic modern design, these luxury apartments incorporate the best of both worlds – from the understated to the bold. Soft hues meet sleek angles. Warm, inviting spaces meet the most updated technology. All set together to create a park-like community in New Haven’s beautiful East Rock neighborhood, both the contemporary and traditional buildings that form the Whitney Modern are a few quick blocks to the best private and public schools in New Haven and a short walk from the City’s best outdoor spaces and schools and the culture, shopping and night life of downtown. If you want to live close to downtown on the Blue Line, but not right downtown, you've found your perfect neighborhood.

RESIDENCES | The Modern and The Cottage

The 42 apartments of Whitney Modern are a study in contrasts between two distinct buildings – The Modern, with its stunningly contemporary design and inspired interiors, and The Cottage, a storied shingle style 1902 mansion, updated to its original splendor and beyond. While preserving a historic building is the greenest form of development, the elegant Whitney Modern also features green spaces and energy efficiency.

The Modern

35 boutique modern residences with unique floor plans in a 4-story building
Wonderfully livable 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, some with separate study
Elevator to each floor
Ranging from 632 -1203 square feet

The Cottage

7 historically curated floor plans in a turn of the last century mansion
Unique 1 and 2 bedroom residences, including one duplex residence with media/entertaining space

Restored grand central staircase
Ranging from 810 - 2225 square feet
