Why sexy design-focused condos fetch up to $59M in Manhattan

October 23, 2018

Some of the world’s top interiors experts are tackling dazzling new Manhattan projects.

 

William Sofield — known for his work designing stores for Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren and YSL — masterminded the layouts at JDS Development Group, Property Market Group and Spruce Capital Partners’ 111 West 57th Street.

 

The staggering 1,428-foot tower, which launched sales in September, oozes urbanity via white macauba stone floors in entrance galleries, smoke-gray patterned oak floors in living spaces and veined white-onyx bathrooms. The 46-unit building will top off in January (from $18 million for a 4,491-square-foot residence to $57 million for a 7,128-square-foot spread).

 

For a downtown vibe, head to The Getty, at 503 West 24th St. in Chelsea, which opened earlier this month. “Leather daddy” architect and designer Peter Marino gave the 11-story, five-unit building an elaborate checkerboard facade, using 167 window panes of all sizes. Inside, Marino sourced more than 60 finishes of stone, marble and wood from four continents; he installed art walls and commissioned custom millwork throughout. Even kitchens have star power, with layouts imagined by chef Daniel Boulud.

 

(This spring, a three-story penthouse at the project sold for $59 million; four units remain, asking $16.2 million to $22 million.)

 

In Long Island City, Australian star designer Paris Forino recently put her finishing touches on Adam America’s Galerie, at 22-18 Jackson Ave., which opens next year. Directly across from MOMA’s PS1 gallery, the 182-unit condominium is itself meant to be a work of art, with vaulted archways in the lobby and herringbone floors made from stone. “There is a big art motif in the building, with curated work throughout the public spaces,” Forino tells us. “Everything is clean and modern but with artful, whimsical moments.” (Prices range from $550,000 for a studio to $2.5 million for three-bedroom penthouse.)
