The Charles living room

Ismael Leyva-designed condo project The Charles at 1355 First Avenue has unleashed its full website.

The 32-story, 29-unit Bluerock Real Estate project is all full-floor residences, all the time, with interiors by David Collins Studio. Unit sizes range from 3,135 to 4,535 square feet.

Every apartment has four bedrooms, a private elevator landing, ceiling heights up to 10’7″, custom wood doors, white oak flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, quiet central HVAC system and radiant heating in the living rooms, with pre-wiring for home automation systems. The eat-in kitchens are accessorized with white polished Corian countertops, Sub-Zero refrigerators, under-counter Sub-Zero wine storage, Miele appliances and mirror-polished high-gloss lacquer cabinetry.

Floors 31 and 32 are occupied by a duplex penthouse with two terraces, with the lower one measuring 791 square feet and the upper one clocking in at 553 square feet. And there’s a glass staircase, if you’re into that. Penthouse renderings below from the official site:

Amenities include a 24-hour attended lobby, lounge, gym, game room and private storage for each residence. TOWN is marketing the property.

The glass tower extends from a seven-story limestone base, and most of the building’s exterior was designed with a “floor-to-ceiling window-wall system” for maximum glossy-light, Chartres-Cathedral-in-Manhattan fabulousness. Alas, there’s no floorplan available for the penthouse, but here’s one for units on the 26th through 30th floors:
