Luxury at its finest with everything needed to meet the requirements of modern city living, One57 is located at 157 West 57th Street on the west side of Manhattan. This luxury condominium high-rise project is poised to become an elegant 90-story building that will easily enrich the city’s famous skyline as well as any visitor or resident’s view of it. Breathtaking views of Central Park and the Hudson River will be visible from the building. The expected completion date for this project, for which construction is already under way, is in 2013, and it will be well worth the wait.
The exterior was designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect, Christian Deportzamparc, whose vision was to design a lavish building which utilizes different kinds of glass to create random patterns that will shift with the sunlight and evening light. This unique approach is expected to offer a stunning and ever-changing façade to be found nowhere else in New York City. Some of this architect’s other notable works include 400 Park South and a large number of concert halls, residential, and commercial buildings all over the world. Danish architect Tomas Juul-Hansen is responsible for the spacious and modern designs within the units, using natural materials from sawn white oak to herringbone rosewood.
One57 will be combining over 200 hotel rooms with 135 residential units, offering spacious one to six bedroom apartments- an arrangement intended to provide world-class services and amenities to all who enter its doors. Preparing to meet visitors and residents from all over the world, the building’s large staff has already been chosen to be multilingual.
The many amenities within One57 will be available to its residents rather than just to the hotel guests. They will include 24-hour concierge and doorman service, maid, valet and room service, catering service, parking space, bicycle storage, laundry service, onsite restaurant, fitness center with large pool, steam room, sauna, yoga studio and spa, billiards room, conference rooms, lounge, children’s playroom, and yes, even a pet spa for those welcome four legged friends. The building will also be wired for high speed internet service.
The property’s location is one in which the city can be traversed with ease, with public buses running along 57th Street from the west side of the city all the way over to the east side. 57th Street is a major thoroughfare for shopping, sightseeing, cultural activities, and stopping to pick up something tasty to eat. The buses connect to both additional buses uptown or downtown, and nearby subway stations as well.
