Mercedes House

The second phase of ripply Hell’s Kitchen rental Mercedes House is now 100 percent leased.

The massive 30-story, 864-unit ziggurat located at 555 West 53rd Street kicked off leasing for the second phase last summer, and now all 480 of those apartments are occupied. The first phase’s 222 homes hit the market in 2011 and were snatched up within 90 days. The developer is Two Trees Management Company.

Amenities at the Enrique Norten-designed building include a gym, yoga studio, basketball court, boxing studio, indoor parking, swimming pools, two outdoor decks with green space, putting green, outside movie theater, juice bar and spa. Residences ranged from studios to two-bedrooms.

Want in on the cascading roof terrace action? Two Trees sold the top ten floors of the development to investment firm Invesco for $170 million, and those 162 abodes are being marketed as luxury rentals. Hey, you might have missed the chance to get in on the ground floor(s), but the view’s better from the top.
