Penthouse floorplans via Curbed!


1st Floor


2nd Floor


3rd Floor

Correction: $130 Million Penthouse floorplans.
...even though that will apparently pale in comparison to the penthouses of the Sony Building (~$150M) and 220 CPS (~$150M-175M)!

EDIT: Fixed link to include all three floors instead of a repeated mid-floor. Thanks GeoDude!

Damn, you're right. Fixed it and thanks for the catch!

It's funny, there's at least one unit in 220 CPS where there floorplan includes a "morning kitchen" as part of the master suite. And I'm positive I've seen a number of other penthouses and townhouses around the city that have two kitchens (often one for the residents to use themselves, and a larger, industrial kitchen for use by staff for big events).

I've gotta say, I'm not that impressed with the layout myself given the pricetag. The fact that the terrace is facing dead East instead of West (Park Views) or South (City Views) just baffles me. Considering 220 CPS, Nordstrom and Steinway are going to have way better views, it wouldn't surprise me if this unit got a big price chop.

This is going to be one of the most distinct NYC towers. I just love this style.

Having looked at the floorplans, this project is a bit of a shame. (agreeing with above) because of the structure of this building; the cantilever over the church on park avenue; the core structure has to be based on the supporting side- the west side. This causes the emergency exits, the mechanicals, and the elevators to be right in the way of the westward views. All units in the building will have fantastic Northern views, but no direct- westward views from principal rooms.

The geography of all of these super luxury 57th street/midtown towers is actually rather unfortunate. you want to face central park, but that requires facing north, which isn't the ideal light. the best light will be south, which is where they've placed the bedrooms, so sleeping will be inconvenient. investing in black-out curtains and expensive air-conditioning bills will be required for these billionaire residents.

oh well. i'd rather live downtown anyhow.

wouldn't be my choice either. West is also the best corner for sunlight on the roof terrace in the evening.

This site is really small.

Yesterday.


The adjacent, dilapidated tenements are real eyesores. Only in NY could $130m apartments built next to that junk.

They kept saying the Echo Brickell site in Miami was too small to build comfortably in...it's 5 times bigger than this site!

1. It's a landmark (iconic, significant, noteworthy), but it wasn't "landmarked." It was slated for demolition in 1964, the year before the Landmarks Preservation Commission was formed--precisely because of such demolitions.

2. The Savoy-Plaza was 250' tall with several setbacks and a sloped roof, the GM building is 700,' and a slab, facing Central Park at 3/4 perspective. That "opens up vistas?" Clearly the urban vista has changed:



3. I never claimed that there IS an automobile showroom in the building. There WAS an automobile showroom in the GM Building, for many years. And avoiding the point of selling cars in a mass transit city, putting an automobile dealership in prime NYC retail and pedestrian space is clearly anti-pedestrian. How many more people go into shops and restaurants, which the ground floor retail of the Savoy-Plaza had, compared to an auto dealership and sunken plaza:



So to reiterate my point, the GM Building showed all the failures of mid-century urban planning: demolishing a noted and important piece of work by a noted firm, disfiguring an urban vista with an out-of-scale slab, and anti-pedestrianism.

EDIT: Here, read this article from the paper of record:
http://www.nytimes.com/1999/07/18/re...-drummers.html
I agree entirely with your comments re the totally bland G.M. building which replaced the wonderful McKim Mead and White Savoy Plaza. You only have to compare the two photos to see what damage the new building did to that once iconic skyline viewed from Central Park. The fact that a major work (along with Penn Station) by NYC's most renowned early 20th c. architects could be sacrificed for such banality defies logic but that was the 60s for you.

When will we just stop crying over long gone buildings that many of us have never even been alive to see? Especially when there's zero chance of them ever being rebuilt? Just learn to accept what you have, and that the GM building is also nice. You're getting this neoclassic building right now, alright?

The previous building wasn't even that great.

When you stop crying over the next brutalist POS that gets demolished.

yet there's a 50 year difference between the two. There's a difference between teaching history and raising awareness of something that's happening today. Hundreds of people long ago shared your opinion, but very few people today probably care.

When have I ever done that? All the buildings I 'cry' over are nice - and not 50 years gone already.
