The sleek 63-story residential tower boasts penthouses, glamorous suites, and a two-story Joël Robuchon restaurant. It sits in Midtown East’s Cultural District and is directly adjacent to Mies van der Rohe’s stunning bronze Seagrum building at One Hundred East 53rd Street. The visually striking glass-encased tower gives residents access to an iconic neighbourhood that houses the Museum of Modern Art and the forever chic Waldorf Astoria.
Designed by Foster + Partners, the attracted the interest of many since its reveal in 2015, including proprietors such as George and Amal Clooney. The entrance is adorned with colourful statement art pieces that were curated by the tower’s project builder and real estate tycoon, Aby Rosen.
The property houses 94 sky-high residential spaces with 360-degree views of the Empire State Building and Central Park. The living conditions are focused on convenience, comfort, and a heavy dose of cultural integration.
There is a showroom at the tower for potential owners that reveals a glimpse into the layout of a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath residence and an alcove loft studio. It is designed by New York–based architect William T. Georgis, celebrated for his polished and contemporary home designs. Interiors boast 11-foot ceilings, custom lighting, travertine countertops, heated flooring, brushed oak cabinetry, Gaggenau kitchen appliances, and bronze detailing.
Potential residents can choose between units ranging from $2.25 million to a whooping $65 million penthouse yet to be sold. The 6,760-square-foot duplex has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths. Its floor-to-ceiling windows reveal views over the ever-changing N.Y.C. skyline.
The tower offers a 24-hour lobby attendant, a wellness center for yoga and Pilates, a sunlit 60-foot swimming pool, a library, relaxed lounge spaces, and a fine-dining place by Robuchon. The highly anticipated restaurant will span two levels of the tower for within-reach gourmet meals.
