This is truly a trophy property.
Sourcing materials from around the world, the recreation of this distinguished building was rooted in the historic context of the neighborhood. The sandstone clad facade and cooper cornice stand out, yet blend harmoniously with the surrounding architecture, and firmly establish the building as a modern landmark.
Inside, the residences feature ceilings up to almost 12', 3 gas fireplaces, and stunning finishes, including kitchens with limestone floors, Calacatta marble slab counter, marble tiled walls and backsplash, custom cabinetry with SA Baxter hardware and top-of-the-line appliances by Gaggenau, Viking Tuscany, and Miele. The bathrooms feature either Calacatta or Blue de Savoie marble floors, walls, and vanities with eucalyptus accents, Kalista fixtures, Toto lavatories, and Victoria and Albert free-standing tubs. Additionally, the building has a large central elevator in addition to individual private elevators within each residence.
