New York City has never seen accommodation like it. Rising over 1,000 feet high on West 57th Street, ONE57 is the building providing Manhattan with its most expensive residences to date. Designed by French architect and urbanist, Christian de Portzamparc, the tower will provide 92 luxury condominium residences for city’s wealthiest. Envisioned and built by a team of world-class talent and architects, when completed the masterpiece will be Manhattan’s tallest residential tower.
Only adding to the decadence of ONE57, a product of Extell Development, is Manhattan’s five star Park Hyatt Hotel situated below the sumptuous residences, meaning that residents of the luxury tower will have access to Park Hyatt’s exclusive amenities and hotel services. Additional select residential amenities will include a 24-hour doorman and concierge, screening and performance space, on-site parking, triple-height and indoor swimming pool and custom Jacuzzi, library, catering kitchen and private fitness centre.
“ONE57 has set the standard for this new era of luxury development in New York,” said Gary Barnett, President of Extell Development Company. “This is an iconic building that has set the bar for luxury living in New York City.”
The high price of the luxury pads has most certainly not warded off interest. Since launching sales for the properties only 7 months ago, the building has received $1 billion in sales with half the residences sold, making it Manhattan’s most expensive accommodation.
So what does this building promise to offer? Perhaps the ONE57’s greatest selling point are the stunning, unobstructed views it presents of the city. Residents can gaze over the length of Central Park, the illustrious Manhattan skyline and both the East and Hudson rivers. Inside the building, quality and style permeates every detail of ONE57’s interior, having been designed by New York-based Danish designer, Thomas Juul-Hansen.
Two bedroom homes in the property start at a price of $7.4 million, with occupancy slated for 2013.
