With no shortage of luxury apartments in the Big Apple, the condo market is booming now more than ever. Uptown, downtown and midtown, no matter in which part of the city you search, your options are abundant, and amenities, lavish. If you’re in the market for a New York home and budget isn’t a concern, these are merely a small selection of the hottest condo buildings in Manhattan.
135 W 52nd St
You’ll find sophisticated living at this coveted midtown address with amenities such as a 75-foot long mosaic pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center with a garden view, and a 12,000 square foot residents’ club. Choose from one to four bedroom apartments designed with luxurious finishes like Calacatta Vision marble, top-tier appliances and Dornbracht fittings. Bonus: French designer Thierry Dreyfus is the mastermind responsible for the dazzling light installation on the façade.
151 E 78th St
The 16-story building replaced two townhouses in the heart of the Upper East Side. With its brick and stone exterior and traditional aesthetic, the high-rise doesn’t detract from one of the neighborhood’s most beautiful blocks. Native New Yorker and Architect Peter Pennoyer is the brains behind the project, in which he’s reimagined pre-war residences for the 21st century. Chevron-patterned oak flooring, double-wide openings between spaces, and handcrafted pocket doors are just a few of the details included in the 14 condos at 151 E 78th St.
The Steven Harris-designed conversion at the corner of Harrison Street and Staple Street in TriBeca offers ten half-floor apartments, a single townhouse with a private backyard, and a duplex apartment with a spacious terrace. Every unit has its own washer/dryer, while amenities include 24-hour concierge, a fitness center, and bicycle storage. The 6,400 square foot penthouse is listed at $34 million.
Soori High Line
At 529 W 29th St, the ultra-modern condo building features soaring 20-foot ceilings, living rooms with fireplaces, and private swimming pools. Situated in West Chelsea and adjacent to Hell’s Kitchen, this sizzling new address is also convenient to the Whitney Museum, scheduled to open in 2015. Units range from about 1,300 square foot to more than 4,000 for a 5-bedroom penthouse.
Located between Spring and Delancey Streets, the Kutinicki Bernstein-designed building is comprised of two and three-bedroom apartments from 1,225 to more than 3,000 square feet. The structure feels turn of the century with a red brick, limestone, and steel exterior, while wide plank oak floors and oiled bronze finishes enhance the inside. Prices start at about $3 million.
443 Greenwich Street
If indoor parking, private fitness studios, a 71-foot swimming pool, and a wine cellar sound like benefits you can’t refuse, then 443 Greenwich is your next address. The 53-unit condo conversion of the former bookbindery built in 1882 boasts 45 lofts and eight penthouses. After sitting vacant for ten years, we can say that this redesign was worth the wait. The most basic unit prices at $7 million, while the sales price of an almost 5000-square foot penthouse is more than $20 million.
