At approximately 780 feet tall, views from 50 West Street ’s curved glass windows are unparalleled. New York Harbor, both the Hudson and East Rivers, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island are all clearly visible. Internationally acclaimed architect Helmut Jahn, well known for his modern steel-and-glass structures, has designed one of the most striking new buildings in the city.
The 64-story tower boasts 191 residential condominiums, with expansive layouts ranging from one to five bedrooms, as well as an array of duplexes and double height living rooms throughout the tower. All interiors are designed and finished by Thomas Juul-Hansen, who has complemented Jahn ’s steel and glass with exceptional warmth and elegance.
Four floors of the tower are devoted to state-of-the-art amenities: an immense Fitness Center, the beautifully-appointed Water Club, unique children ’s amenities, and The Observatory at 50 West Street, a spectacular 64th floor outdoor entertaining space with seemingly infinite views of New York and beyond.
By working with natural materials, Thomas Juul-Hansen has ensured that the building ’s interiors are classic and timeless. Colors are neutral, patterns are kept to a minimum, and fixtures are subtle. Floor-to-ceiling windows accentuate 50 West Street ’s most compelling feature: the New York skyline.
Select residences are duplexes, lending even greater vertical reach, while some corner residences feature double height living rooms and wraparound vistas. The spacious kitchens, outfitted with Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, are finished in stained walnut panels and granite slabs.
Bedrooms feature generous closets and en suite bathrooms. An expanse of wall-to-wall mirror above a floating, backlit marble vanity makes an already sizable master bathroom feel even more grand. Marble floors, custom walnut cabinetry, and a fluted glass bath wall create an atmosphere of understated opulence.
