MARKS USA Custom Lockset Division has provided custom decorative door hardware for a number of premier residential developments. At Georgica Residential Towers located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, MARKS supplied forged brass levers, in a polished nickel finish, created to compliment the distinctive “L” shape of this architectural majesty by imitating the abundance of corners and protrusions within the design of the building itself. The Georgica, whose name was inspired by the serene Georgica Pond in East Hampton, NY, is sheathed in bronze and clear glass, designed by the architectural and interior design firm Cetra/Ruddy.
The Visionaire luxury condominiums in New York City selected MARKS USA Custom Lockset Division’s Grade 1 Mortise Locksets for the 35-story, 247-unit luxury condominium. Marks USA’s custom lockset design matches the striking architectural form of The Visionaire, located at the southern tip of Battery Park City, a 92- acre community with 35 acres of open park space bordering New York’s Hudson River.Architect Raphael Pelli of Pelli Clarke Pelli, envisioned streamlined contours and focused on how The Visionaire was perceived from within, optimizing natural light and river and city views.
MARKS USA also brings a unique design to The Brompton in New York City. The Custom Lockset Division manufactured solid brass, nickel-plated leversets for this 22-story luxury condominium located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Stern architects, LLP, ‘The Brompton’s’ red brick and limestone facade is gothic inspired. Registered with the U.S. Green Building Council in anticipation of LEED silver certification, The Brompton is energy efficient and uses sustainable building materials and is designed to conserve water.
