Wow its finished. Was a great time covering it. A true beauty that did indeed set the race for the sky. :worship:

Lovely building. The 57th Street supertall boom started with One57, you could say it has been the pioneer.

I like it. There are so many new giants under construction, completed, or announced in NYC, that it is easy to lose track.

At One57, $55.4 Million and Ready for Entertaining


http://static01.nyt.com/images/2014/...superJumbo.jpg


By ROBIN FINN
DEC. 12, 2014


Quote:

Another full-floor residence at One57, the 90-story Midtown tower from the Extell Development Company that promises unparalleled vistas of Central Park,
the Hudson and East Rivers, and nearly every New York City landmark on the horizon, traded at $55,498,125 and was the most expensive sale of the week,
according to city records.

The monthly carrying costs for the 6,240-square-foot apartment, No. 81, are a relatively non-astronomical $12,132, owing to a tax abatement negotiated by the sponsor.
Only 11 residences, all on upper stories, occupy an entire floor at 157 West 57th Street; all are spoken for, with the majority of them to be used as decidedly non-cozy,
but definitely impressive and entertainment-ready, pieds-à-terre, which is apparently the plan in place for No. 81.

Like its 10 peers near the pinnacle of One57, the brash blue skyscraper designed by Atelier Christian de Portzamparc, the French firm with a Pritzker award among its laurels,
No. 81 has four bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths and a galvanizing 75-foot-long entrance gallery with a sitting room at its southern tip and head-on views of the park
to the north. The ceilings throughout are nearly 12 feet high, enhancing the overall sense of spaciousness. The so-called grand salon, with its three exposures and floors
of rift-sawn white oak, includes 57 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows directly overlooking the park and beyond. Distant views of the Catskills and the Atlantic Ocean
are possible on a clear day.

The unit has a white Smallbone of Devizes kitchen — buyers could select white or Macassar ebony finishes — that adjoins a 27-by-17-foot breakfast room for informal dining.
Each en-suite bathroom in the bedroom wing is a different type of stone, including onyx, travertine or marble.

The highly indulgent corner master suite is anchored by a one-ton bathtub carved from a single marble slab. The tub’s south-facing position is such that it offers bathers
bird’s-eye views of the Empire State Building, New York Harbor and Statue of Liberty. Glass walls on either side of the tub render it multifunctional: A bather can elect
to “take a steam while taking in the views,” said Jeannie Woodbrey, a senior sales executive for One57, which has sold more than 80 percent of its 94 units.
“We’re one of the only luxury towers that can offer immediate occupancy,” she added.


The Extell Marketing Group handled the transaction for the sponsor; John Venekamp and Leslie J. W. Singer of Brown Harris Stevens brought the buyer,
the Rebecca Ann Moores Family Trust, based in Del Mar, Calif., of which Rebecca Ann Moores is listed as the primary trustee.

Ms. Woodbrey said that this buyer, like several others who sought a grand pied-à-terre in the heart of Manhattan, chose One57 partly on the basis of the top-shelf amenities
and additional accommodations available through the Park Hyatt New York hotel at its base. “Our residents can have everything from theater tickets to helicopter service
to the Hamptons to their own designated table in the hotel dining room arranged for them and their guests.”

Ms. Woodbrey said that the quartz stone bed in the hotel’s spa, which provides clients with private rooms and balconies, has already proved popular for its “healing properties.”

As has become a pattern in this season of sales dominance by One57, the tower also took credit for the week’s runner-up, No. 64A, at $24,843,664.19. The Extell Marketing Group
again represented the sponsor in the transaction; the anonymous buyer of the six-room, 4,483-square-foot apartment was GMF 157 LP, which is affiliated with a
New York City-based limited liability company, GMF Management. The unit has three bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths and a 1,300-square-foot
living/dining/entertainment area with three exposures highlighted by direct views of the park.

Turned out decent enough, but the dark opaque panels on the top really spoil it.

The Times Struggles to Describe a Seemingly Endless Stream of One57 Sales


By Kim Velsey
12/17/14


Quote:

We sympathize with Robin Finn, we really do. By our count, The New York Times’ “Big Ticket” columnist has had to write nine columns on closings at One57 in the last calendar-year, many of them in the last few months, as a flurry of contracts inked long ago finally closed.

It would be difficult for even the most creative writer to make sale after sale at the same new-construction building sound fresh. We, for one, are very much aware of the challenge in cataloging the charms of cookie-cutter new development, one identical, superlative unit after another, an endless stream of selfsame, sprawling condos.

But One57 is particularly daunting given the need to write about so many of those sales by virtue of their prices and the high volume of transfers from the sponsor to unimaginatively-named LLCs. It’s a little bit like covering every Mercedes that drives off the lot of a car dealership, lines in an accounting ledger more than unique transactions.

But recently revisiting Ms. Finn’s many One57 write-ups, we were impressed with her efforts to bring warmth to chilly transactions, to add verve to muted luxury, to differentiate between the undifferentiatable.

Still, we sensed her exhaustion in this past week’s column, which opens with the declaration that “another [emphasis ours] full-floor residence at One57,” the Midtown tower that “promises unparalleled vistas of Central Park, the Hudson and East Rivers, and nearly every New York City landmark on the horizon,” was the most expensive sale of the week.

Even the headline writer seems tired, describing the unit as “ready for entertaining.”

And who wouldn’t be? A selection of Ms. Finn’s impressive ingenuity in the face of near-impossible circumstances:

On One57 itself

April 11: “90-story spike of bluish glass that does not scrape the Midtown sky as much as puncture it”

May 9: “The prominent tower of blue glass”

May 16: “Extell Development Company’s robust 90-story blue glass tower and billionaire magnet”

July 25: “the Extell Development Company’s 90-story glass juggernaut”

Aug. 15: “the strategically placed 90-story spike of blue glass”

Oct. 31: “the brash bluish spike”

Dec. 12: “a brash blue skyscraper”

On the views

April 11: “the ultimate view magnet, 60 feet of park frontage in the living/dining/entertaining area”

May 9: “60 feet of Central Park frontage, the catnip visual that Extell’s president, Gary Barnett, likes to call ‘the beauty shot.’ “

May 16: “designed… to impress and to grab every available glimpse of Central Park and the Hudson River”

June 6: “major vistas via floor-to-ceiling windows”

Aug. 15: “Some 60 feet of Central Park frontage can be enjoyed through floor-to-ceiling windows in the condo’s living space.”

Oct. 17: “vistas in four directions, including 60 feet of direct views of Central Park”

Oct. 31: “glass curtain walls that capture 360-degree views of the city and beyond — the Catskills and the Atlantic are part of the scenery on a clear day.”

Nov. 28: “curtain glass walls that provide spectacular views of Central Park, the Hudson and East Rivers and a cornucopia of city landmarks.”

Dec. 12: “Distant views of the Catskills and the Atlantic Ocean are possible on a clear day.”

On the units

Oct. 17: “One other thing that the privileged few who buy entire floors at One57 are unlikely to alter is the one-ton bathtub sculpted from a single marble slab that stands sentry in every master bath”

Dec. 12: “The highly indulgent corner master suite is anchored by a one-ton bathtub carved from a single marble slab.”

Oct. 31: “the showstopper a one-ton soaking tub in the master bath that was hand-carved from a single slab of marble and is framed by glass walls”

May 16: “One bath has Italian statuario marble walls and floors, and the other has Covelano Silvergold marble. Both have radiant heated floors for underfoot comfort.”

Oct. 17: “each of the four and a half baths has a different stone finish”

Dec. 12: “Each en-suite bathroom in the bedroom wing is a different type of stone, including onyx, travertine or marble.”

April 11: “The custom eat-in kitchen by Smallbone of Devizes has hand-painted white cabinetry (although buyers at One57 do have the option of choosing a Macassar ebony color scheme).”

July 4: “a kitchen outfitted with an array of Miele appliances and hand-painted white cabinetry by Smallbone of Devizes”

Dec. 12: “The unit has a white Smallbone of Devizes kitchen — buyers could select white or Macassar ebony finishes”

Dec. 12: “a galvanizing 75-foot-long entrance gallery”

On tax abatement

April 11: “The monthly carrying costs for the apartment, a 4,483-square-foot residence at 157 West 57th Street… are a relatively painless $7,487.”

May 9: “Thanks to a tax abatement, the monthly carrying costs are a mere $7,601.”

May 16: “the monthly carrying costs for this luxurious aerie at 157 West 57th Street are, for now, a relatively unimposing $7,370.”

June 6: “For now, the monthly carrying costs for the 4,483-square-foot condominium, No. 61A, are a mere $7,545, thanks to a tax abatement.”

July 25: “The monthly carrying costs of $5,138 for the apartment, No. 54A, are a relative bargain owing to a tax abatement.”

Aug. 15: “The monthly carrying costs for the luxury-laden 4,483-square-foot unit, No. 63A, at 157 West 57th Street, are a relatively modest $7,662″

Oct. 17: “the monthly carrying costs are a manageable $7,363, thanks to a tax abatement that has proved extremely popular with buyers.”

Oct. 31: “The monthly carrying costs for the 6,240-square-foot condominium, No. 82, are a relatively non-stratospheric $12,212″

Dec. 12: “The monthly carrying costs relatively non-astronomical $12,132, owing to a tax abatement negotiated by the sponsor.”

The headlines

April 11: “a home in the sky”

May 9: “a sky-high retreat”

May 16: “an aerie with park views”

Aug. 15: “sky-high park views”

Oct. 31: “$56 million for prime New York City views”

Nov. 28: “a bird’s-eye view for $52.9 million”

Even the brokers seem at a loss to come up with new things to say about One57:

Oct. 17: “This is a drop-dead-gorgeous three-bedroom with park views from the living room and master suite,” said Jeannie Woodbrey.

Oct. 31: “The apartment was designed to have as many open spaces as possible,” said Jeannie Woodbrey.

Nov. 28: “You’re in another world up there,” said Jeannie Woodbrey.

Nov. 28: “On a clear day you can see almost every bridge in the tristate area. It’s very special.” —Douglas Elliman broker Michael Graves.

Dec. 12: “A bather can elect to ‘take a steam while taking in the views,’ said Jeannie Woodbrey, a senior sales executive for One57… “We’re one of the only luxury towers that can offer immediate occupancy,”

Let’s hope that when 432 Park starts to close, at least a few of the buyers ink the deeds in their own names to relieve the tedium a little bit.
