now that the supertall is close to topping out—it should be there by the beginning of next year—the developers are pulling back the curtain. Seven of the building’s 46 apartments
are now on the market; most of those are three-bedroom units, with the cheapest going for $18 million.
Quote:

The most expensive apartment that’s currently available is a $56 million penthouse, which measures more than 7,500 square feet and has four bedrooms over two floors.
(The floorplan for that apartment is as bonkers as you’d expect—the master “wing” has two full bathrooms, a sitting room, a walk-in closet, and dressing hall.)
Quote:

Studio Scofield is behind the interiors for the apartments, which are tasteful and muted, and take inspiration from the building itself; door handles are fabricated in the shape of the tower,
while kitchen cabinets are curved, echoing the terra cotta panels on the facade. Amenities for the rarefied few who’ll call these units home include a private porte cochere,
a 82-foot pool, a fitness center, dining room, and “highly experienced concierge professionals attending to residents’ every need” (of course).

The balcony units take advantage of the setbacks. The tower will top out in 3 months.

Developers unveiled floor plans for seven lavishly laid-out units priced from $18 million to $56 million. The tower soars more than 80 stories at the edge of Central Park, and integrates the 1920s Steinway & Sons piano store, a historically landmarked building now known as Steinway Hall.

The 1,428-foot-tall skyscraper will house only 46 full-floor and duplex residences, which developers expect to deliver by early 2020.

The priciest unit to hit the market on Monday is Penthouse 72, a duplex spanning 7,128 square feet with four bedrooms, including an entire wing devoted to the master suite and its amenities. The lavish bedroom has an adjoined sitting room, two bathrooms, a wet bar and more than 230 square feet of closet space, according to the floor plans.

A grand spiral staircase anchors the duplex, designed with entertaining and living spaces—including a roughly 1,000-square-foot great hall—on the first floor and the bedrooms on the second. In total, the penthouse has five bathrooms and a powder room.

Construction is now on track to top out in January, according to the developers.

Some apartments offer outdoor space, including the $30 million Residence 64, one of the seven listings released on Monday.

All three bedrooms in the simplex unit open onto a 300-square-foot balcony perched over Midtown Manhattan. The apartment has 3,873 square feet of interior space, and features an open kitchen, living room and dining room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking Central Park, according to the floor plan.

I'm drooling looking at these floor plans and renderings. But it makes me think of something. If you're on one of the top floors, and drunkenly enter the stairwell from your unit, would you have to walk 1,000 feet down to the lobby just to hop back on the elevator?

Likely not.

You can see some "hidden" floor plans as well on the website. Most are duplicates, but these are some unique ones:

The unit with a double height living area:

Nice unit with outdoor space, probably the one I'd pick as a billionaire:

As they get higher the usable space on the south side gets awkward:

^^The drunken stumble/locked stairwell concern is actually not unfounded. I imagine the units above and below your own would be locked, unlike many office buildings where you can go in and out of the stairwells somewhat freely. So unless the doors have keypad incase you forget your keys, you're in for a 1,000 foot trek to the ground floor. Or a blow through floor.

Thanks nyc_alex for posting those links. The floorplans show observatories along with drawings of telescopes. What a classy development. Can you imagine owning a 1,200' observatory? Only in New York!

nyc_alex Oct 3, 2018 3:33 PM

I imagine the stairwell will have phones as well for calling the front desk. That said, how drunk would you have to be to get lost in your own home and go into a stairwell. Maybe a guest? It isn't a unique problem to this building, though.

DrNest Oct 3, 2018 3:59 PM

I'm trying to figure out how the "private elevator" works? They all seem to be in the same location in the building, all with direct access to each unit. What's to stop somebody riding the elevator accessing your apartment? Or at least looking into it as you get off? There does seem to be a major privacy concern to me.

Private elevators for full-floor residences have been the norm in Manhattan since the 1920's, so it isn't some new concept.

You typically enter from the elevator directly into the residence reception hall. Nowadays they use laser scanners for security, and guests are allowed in by doorman override. No neighbor will ever see your residence unless you allow them.

Stairwell phones were my thought as well. I've lived in one building with a private elevator entrance (not mine), but it was only five stories so I never really thought about it before.

It still would be kind of weird to have a an elevator open directly into your unit.
I'm sure it's somewhat normal but I still wouldn't feel completely secure.
I'd like to have it separated into a small foyer room that I could lock off and bypass.

That was my thinking too.

^That's not as unusual as you might think.

The parents of a friend of mine from college have a penthouse in SF that has a direct elevator into the unit. It's actually pretty cool, and very secure. And there's is in a much older building, so imagine this is another level of secure. I'd wager you'd have biometrics involved at this point in the game, especially at this price point.
