One57 NYC

A Short Story About One57

In 2015, One57 delivered on the developer's promise of becoming, at the time, the most expensive and the most exclusive condo apartment address in New York City. 157 West 57th Street, or One57, began the sequence that resulted in this stretch of 57th Street becoming known as "Billionaires' Row."

Extell, the developer, created a superb selection of exclusive homes where the view from each takes center stage. To the north, residents and guests see Central Park, to the south they get to gaze at the hyperactive life that is Midtown Manhattan, each with huge windows to provide an eagle's eye view of Carnegie Hall, and the Hudson and East Rivers away in the distance.

Extell's name is derived from "Excellence" and "Intelligence," and these two principles drove everything the One57 team did. They achieved something no other condo tower had achieved until then. The project was envisioned by Pritzker Award-winning French architect Atelier Christian de Portzamparc, and its interior design was created by Thomas Juul-Hansen.

To quote Extell's VP of Design, "We set out to create a residential experience unlike anything else in New York City, collaborating with craftsmen of impeccable taste and discernment. Our selective process ensured that every residence at One57 is among the best ever designed."

The Architecture

One57 tower features a sleek, 1000-foot high façade of vertical lines, incorporating alternate dark and light mirrors to modify the shading as the sun rises, passes, and sets, thus delivering dynamic reflections of the street below.

Every residence is among the best that has ever been designed. Featuring expansive living spaces and custom detailing aimed at both intelligence in the use of those spaces and excellence in their essential design, One57 residences for sale are opulent, discrete, gracious, and meticulously finished.

The ground floor has the residents' private entrance lobby, concierge office, and mail room. The 2nd floor is home to the Onyx Room, conference room, function rooms, the catering kitchen, as well as the Park Hyatt lounge.

The 3rd to the 30th floors are anchored by the world-renowned Park Hyatt Hotel, whose hand-selected team of professionals provide One57 condominium residents with every service they may require.

The residences are of three primary designs, the "One Collection," the "Signature Collection," and the two penthouses which are known as the "Spring Garden" and the "Winter Garden." The One57 penthouses both enjoy their own exclusive outdoor areas. All are witness to scrupulous attention to detail in every aspect of their construction and finish.

The One Collection residences occupy floors 32 to 38, and the Signature Collection homes are on floors 38 to 90.

The Residences

The One Collection homes are a turnkey collection of 38 apartments which range from one to four bedrooms. One57 apartments are complete, fully furnished, and equipped and appointed with every utensil, towel and piece of linen an owner would expect. The living areas are open and spacious and make the most of the natural light to make the most of the views.

One57’s Signature Collection apartments redefine luxury with the offer of larger residences from three to five-bedroom homes.

The two One57 penthouses for sale, the Spring Garden and Winter Garden, are truly spectacular. The first thing that demands attention is the entrance to each home. It was in the early part of the last century when architects created the entrance hall or gallery to act as a circulation hub for hosts to greet and say goodbye to their guests, to display their artwork and other collections, and to set the tone for the residence. The foyers in these penthouse suites truly do justice to their owners' demands for making an elegant or romantic first impression.

Each penthouse residence spans two floors and, in addition to the beautiful living and dining areas, has five bedrooms. The solariums encompass almost 700 square feet (65 square meters) from the living room and add to the grandeur and feeling of openness of the residence.

The penthouses' lower level has a large bedroom, a powder room, and a kitchen off the great room, complete with a large center-island with integrated stools. A delightful wooden staircase leads to the upper floor where the other four bedrooms are located, including the magnificent master bedroom suite. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.

The Finishes

As one would expect, each residence has the finest of natural finishes. The bedrooms are a haven of peacefulness. The beds in the One Collection homes are by Dux, and the linens are by Sferra. All the bathrooms are Italian marble with radiant-heated floors and have fittings by Waterworks and Dornbracht.

The kitchens are fitted with cabinetry by Smallbone of Devizes. This company began its business in the ancient county of Wiltshire in England meticulously renovating antique furniture. It then transferred its craftsmen's traditional skills to constructing the world's best custom cabinetry. The kitchens all have integrated, technologically-advanced Miele and Subzero appliances, and the Dornbracht brand name continues through from the bathrooms for the faucets.

The Amenities

The Park Hyatt Hotel set the standards for the amenities available to the One57 residents. The hotel was ranked #1 in New York City by US News and World Report. The building's 31st floor contains the residents' library, designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen, which includes a billiard table and large aquarium. The screening and performance room features a Steinway grand piano to take full advantage of the floor’s perfect acoustic design. The Park Hyatt Hotel also has a fitness center, conference room, and private dining room. The fitness center offers personal training and has a yoga studio.

The 25th floor is home to the hotel guests' amenities. The swimming pool, sauna, and steam rooms on this floor are available to One57 condo owners. Swimmers get to enjoy not only their sport but are treated to underwater music by Carnegie Hall composers.


Spa Nalai

Spa Nalai is also on the 25th floor and is also available to owners and guests. It offers the finest services available to encourage and enable wellness, relaxation, and good health. It has a unique sand quartz treatment bed as well as a superb couples' spa.

On the 3rd floor, residents and guests will find the Living Room Restaurant and Lounge, and the Bevy Restaurant. The Living Room is a modern "grand salon" offering perfectly crafted cocktails in the champagne bar.

Concierge Services

The Park Hyatt hotel's concierge services, provided by Luxury Attaché, are available at a moment's notice to all residents. In-home catering, pantry-stocking, turn-down service, etc. are only a phone call away.


The Neighborhood

One57 is at the center of Manhattan. Here, Central Park meets The Plaza District. Culture, commerce, fine dining, and high-end shopping combine to create the energy, excitement, creativity, and intellectual expression that is New York City.

The Empire State Building, the Museum of Modern Art, Madison Square Garden, and the New York Public Library are a stone's throw from the iconic One57. The Booth theater with its Venetian-Renaissance frontage offers drama and comedy in an intimate setting, The Al Hirschfeld Theater along with other Broadway and off-Broadway theaters tell the world that every great performance can be easily found by local residents.

There are many restaurants, but here are just two; the 21 Club provides classic American fare in a setting that can only be described as an exploration into the imagination. Bouloud Sud delights its dinner guests with incredible Mediterranean cuisine.

Shoppers are spoiled for choice. There is, of course, the iconic Tiffany and Co. then Ascot Chang for bespoke gentlemen's apparel, and Alexander McQueen for the lady of the house. The list of stores is almost endless.


Why We Recommend One57

To paraphrase Extell's VP of design, anyone who wants a residential experience like no other should consider One57. Many ultra-high net-worth individuals need a convenient, exclusive, full-service, and immediately ready-to-occupy pied-à-terre. That is what One57 provides. Others want a larger home which they furnish in a way that speaks to them. That is also what One57 offers. And everyone who wants perfect amenities supported by the most professional concierge team in the world knows that Park Hyatt's team will deliver every time.

Comparing Properties

15 Central Park West

The 202 homes in this twin tower condo development are in Lincoln Square. It has a new classical style designed by Robert A. M. Stern. The two towers are constructed from limestone from the same quarry as the Empire State Building. One tower, "The House" has 19 stories and is joined to the second 35 story tower by a glass-enclosed lobby. The open courtyard between the towers is a unique feature and acts as a private motor entrance to screen residents from any unwelcome photographers.

The apartments range from single bedroom units to four-bedroom homes. They all have large windows to make the most of the natural light and the expansive views, and they all enjoy high ceilings for that open feeling of well-deserved spaciousness.

Residents are serviced by the 14,000 square foot (1,300 square meters) health club and spa, the 75 foot (22.86 meters) swimming pool, the walnut-paneled library, the screening room and private wine cellars.

111 West 57 Street

111 West 57 is hailed as a masterpiece of modern architecture. The new tower rises from the famous Steinway Tower built in 1925. The terra-cotta and bronze exterior, therefore, intertwines modern architectural splendor with New York history and its famous, traditional building techniques.

The 1425 foot (435 meters) high tower houses 60 condo units, some of which are half-floor residences and some full floor. All have spectacular views of Central Park and the city's skyline. Resident amenities include an impressive lap-pool, alcove cabanas for extended relaxation, and a grand terrace with its own mezzanine floor.

225 West 57 Street

Central Park Tower's 1550 feet (472.44 meters) provide impressive views of the park and the surrounding city skyline. The tower is divided into three separate entities; exquisite residences, luxury hotel suites, and Nordstrom's seven-story New York flagship store.

The 95 floors contain 185 beautiful apartment homes and include an incredible 16,000 square foot (1,486 square meters) penthouse which has its own private terrace and pool area.

Resident amenities are luxuriously spread across three floors and include everything from a children's play area to a grand ballroom and a cigar bar.

432 Park Avenue

This ultra-impressive development is the highest residential tower in the whole of the Western World. Billionaires' Row expresses everything that says luxury lifestyle, total achievement, and intellectual excellence. 432 Park Avenue is the ultimate expression of all of that. Rafael Viñoly, the architect, wanted to deliver a superb piece of engineering based on "the simple square" to send a subtle message to all who see it and live in it: life may be complex, but luxury living is simple.

The proof of his intention is echoed in every new record the property has set for luxury living and luxury's price tag. The 96 stories incorporate half-floor and full-floor homes ranging from 3,575 square feet (332.1 square meters) to the 8,255 square feet (766.91 square meters) penthouses which occupy floors 91 to 96. Each residence has high ceilings and glorious window views, and most have between three and six bedrooms.

Amenities include a Michelin star restaurant, a superb wellness and fitness center, a library, a screen room, conference suites, and a children's area.
