Rising 40 stories above the city’s popular NoMad district, 400 Park Avenue is a sleek new addition to the Manhattan skyline. The luxury residential tower by Toll Brothers City Living was completed in late 2015 and is now 85 percent sold. BuzzBuzzHome News visited the on-site sales gallery for an exclusive tour of the building including a look at its impressive array of amenities and beautifully appointed model suite.
Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, the glass and steel high rise features a modern exterior architecture that’s both distinctive and eye catching. The dynamic facade is characterized by expansive spans of glass creating asymmetrical forms and cantilevered corners reminiscent of crystal prisms.
“It’s not really a tower but a gathering of different towers together at an angle which is very particular, and I think it provides interesting apartments [and] interesting views,” said de Portzamparc. “What is special is this prismatic, oblique type of volume in Manhattan which integrates itself well in the block and provides some dynamics with the sky.”
Inside, the condominium houses a collection of world-class amenities starting with a welcoming lobby showcasing a display of curated artwork by local artist and designer Orly Genger. These include a vibrant pedestal mounted red rope sculpture, and a stunning 12-foot watercolor titled Royal Rumble.
The development also offers 24-hour concierge services, a state-of-the-art fitness center with a yoga room indoor lap pool with Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, as well as a residents’ lounge, screening room, golf simulator and children’s playroom.
More amenities are found on the 27th floor where a sky lounge and terrace provides the perfect spot to entertain, get a little work done or simply enjoy the spectacular views.
“400 Park Avenue South offers buyers the chance to live in a true work of art with inspiring city views,” said David Von Spreckelsen, the New York Division President of Toll Brothers City Living. “The homes offer a fabulous lifestyle with unique and spectacular spaces, fantastic amenities and immediate access to some of the finest retail, dining and activities in New York City.”
The suites at 400 Park Avenue were designed by Stephen Alton and range from studios to four bedroom plans with free-flowing open concept layouts. The sales office is situated on the 23rd floor in suite 23C where visitors can tour a beautiful 2,692-square-foot three-bedroom suite with three bathrooms.
