In New York, you can now live higher than ever. New residential towers rise more and more into the clouds: the 111 West 57th stands 1,428 feet tall, for example, and the infamous Park 432 is about 1400 feet high. But the new Central Park Tower is head and shoulders above them all at a whopping 1,550 feet tall. Living here promises not only bragging rights, but also quite exceptional views.
Robb Report got a first glimpse of one of the residences on the 66th floor, a 3,165 square foot space with three bedrooms and three bathrooms for $ 21.8 million. Blainey Nord & Associates did the interior design of the model home, incorporating pieces from their Blainey North furniture collection. They also purchased rugs from the carpet company and the lights of Gabriel Scott and Urban Electric Company.
“We were inspired by the sound of New York,” says North Robb Report. “As someone from halfway across the world – Australia – I find Manhattan’s ubiquitous buzz to be one of its hallmarks. The sound always hits me when I walk into town and somehow feels reassuring to me. His vision was to create a space that felt like a retreat or a respite from the everyday cacophony of Manhattan. There are a few nods to this aural theme throughout the unit. british artist Nadia Anne Rickets line the walls with textured fabrics with patterns that directly mimic the sound patterns of popular songs; in the living room, textiles pay homage to “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” by The Beatles.
Residents of the home will also have access to Central Park Tower’s promising amenities package. Only those who live in the building can access the exclusive Central Park Club, a 50,000 square foot amenity suite that spans three floors. There’s an outdoor deck with a 60-foot pool and cabanas, a spa offering massages and more, and a well-stocked fitness center. Even the lobby makes a statement: a tailor-made Lalique A chandelier composed of 2,000 pieces of crystal has just been installed, marking the brand’s first residential collaboration in New York in more than a century.
Those who are interested can snatch the 66th-floor home or any of the other 179 units in the building. Prices start at $ 6.9 million, with noble residences on upper floors listed for up to $ 65 million. The sky is really the limit here, at least in terms of price.
