Completion is fast approaching at Madison House at 15 East 30th Street, a NoMad condo situated between Madison and Fifth avenues. At 805 feet tall, Madison House ranks as the tallest condo in the neighborhood and the 16th-tallest residential building in all of New York City. To spice up the currently available listings, the building team released new renderings that showcase the glass-walled interiors and the sumptuous views beyond. Listing ranges span from $1.48 million for one-bedroom apartments to $13.73M for a four-bedroom penthouse on the 57th floor.

Handel Architects treated the skyscraper with vertical bands of terra cotta that soar uninterrupted from the building base to the slanted, double-peaked crown, and echo the Art Deco limestone at nearby Empire State Building, which looms in direct view from more than half of the building’s apartments. In fact, height and views is somewhat of a driving theme behind the building, which strives to elevate its residents as high as possible.

Handel Architects treated the skyscraper with vertical bands of terra cotta that soar uninterrupted from the building base to the slanted, double-peaked crown, and echo the Art Deco limestone at nearby Empire State Building, which looms in direct view from more than half of the building’s apartments. In fact, height and views is somewhat of a driving theme behind the building, which strives to elevate its residents as high as possible.

Even the lowest units are elevated 150 feet, or about 15 standard stories, above the ground, high enough to allow for dramatic skyline views. Ceilings soar 11 feet or above, higher than even most pre-war apartments. Sheer, floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around most of the exterior. The building’s notched form creates ten, rather than the standard four, corners per floor, meaning that every residence offers one or more corner rooms. Moreover, many of these corner spaces are column-free, maximizing the views that open beyond.

The views are worthy of a separate mention. To the north, beyond the Empire State Building, the man-made mountains of Midtown rise in all their glory, with the peaks of the Chrysler Building and One Vanderbilt soaring ahead. To the east, Kips Bay, the East River and Brooklyn and Queens all rise low enough to allow for dramatic sunrise views from most units. Pointed pre-war pinnacles around Madison Square perch to the south, with Lower Manhattan looming beyond. The towers of NoMad, Chelsea, and Hudson Yards rise to the west.

The theme of loftiness extends beyond the apartments. Double-height, glass-walled spaces feature throughout Madison House’s 30,000-square-foot amenity suite, including in the club room and the fitness center with a separate yoga room. The spa sports a 75-foot lap pool, hot tub, sauna, and cold plunge, as well as a lounge. A 2,800-square-foot roof garden sits on the second floor. A private dining room comes with a demonstration and catering kitchen. The building also offers a conference room, reading room, card room, a golf simulator, billiards, and a children’s playroom.

Madison House snatched the title of the neighborhood’s tallest apartment building from the crystalline, 778-foot-tall Madison Square Park Tower at 45 East 22nd Street, where a dramatic, glass-walled triplex penthouse recently set this year’s contract record at $52 million. Other recently-completed and in-progress luxury condos include Rafael Viñoly’s 55-floor condo tower down the block at 277 Fifth Avenue, Cetra/Ruddy’s 46-story, Art Deco-themed Rose Hill at 30 East 29th Street, Morris Adjmi’s 42-story Gothic-Modern sliver 30E31 at 30 East 31st Street, and a 21-story, angled-balcony tower under construction at 9 East 30th Street. The 55-story Sky House at 11 East 29th Street rises across from Madison House, and 46-story Instrata NoMad at 10 East 29th Street stands further south.
