The 18-story Georgian building at 18 Gramercy Park South, on the corner of Irving Place, was originally built in 1927 and will feature 16 units: 14 full-floor homes, a duplex penthouse with four terraces and a maisonette with its own street entrance. Every residence measures at least 4,200 square feet, including white oak floors, hand-troweled walls and ceilings, living rooms that span the front of the building at Gramercy Park and two-bath master suites.
The grandiose five-bedroom 6,300-square-foot penthouse occupies the 17th and 18th floors, with a salon, heated infinity pool, almost 2,000 square feet of outdoor space and views of Gramercy Park to the Midtown skyline. The two-bedroom, three-bathroom maisonette measures 3,700 square feet and has a double-height gallery living room with high windows.
The 14 full-floor units are priced from $14 to $18 million, while the penthouse is asking $42 million and the maisonette $9.25 million. The three units that have hit the market range from $15 million to $17.85 million.
Amenities include a spa and fitness center, key-lock elevator access and the option of buying an exclusive annual key to Manhattan’s only private park. According to The Real Deal, there are currently only 398 keys to the two-acre Gramercy Park, and they are numbered, dated and distributed according to a 181-year-old system created by Samuel Ruggles, who founded the neighborhood.
The Zeckendorf brothers bought the site, formerly Salvation Army housing for women, for $60 million in 2007, closing the deal in 2010. Architect Robert A.M. Stern was brought on to design the 17-story conversion, and the developers also teamed up with Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer. The three parties previously collaborated on 15 Central Park West.
