When 432 Park Avenue is completed (pencilled in for 2015), it promises to boast views of the Big Apple quite unlike any you’ve seen before. Standing at a vertigo inducing 1,396-feet, the six-bedroom penthouse will take in views from the Hudson to the East River, the Bronx to Brooklyn and Central Park to the Atlantic Ocean.
The geometric tower designed by Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly will complement New York’s impressive skyline collection of iconic landmark structures alongside the likes of One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building to name but a few.
Located in one of Manhattan’s prime districts, Park Avenue runs parallel to Madison and Lexington Avenue which all boast a wealth of the world’s finest global luxury brand retailers, fashion outlets, art galleries, restaurants and more. The 96-storey is constructed on the former site of the Drake Hotel, which was demolished by developer Harry Macklowe in order to see his vision of 432 Park Avenue realised.
The 115 residences range from 1,422 square feet apartments to the impressive penthouse with private library, which is currently on the market for a modest $95 million. Each have expansive windows providing an abundance of natural light.
Residents will also benefit from amenities including a private restaurant, outdoor garden for dining and events, spa and fitness centre with sauna, steam and massage rooms, 75-foot swimming pool, library, lounge, billiards room, screening room and performance venue, children’s playroom, and boardroom.
The building also comes with the services you would expect of any five-star hotel including catering, concierge, 24-hour doorman, and valet parking. Potential investors would be well advised to act with haste as the CIM Group and Macklowe Properties recently announced that since the sales campaign was launched earlier in March, US$1 billion of residential condominiums have already been mopped up.
