The tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, 432 Park Lane, has just unveiled a newly completed Penthouse. Designed by interior designer extraordinaire Robert Couturier, New York’s hottest new piece of real-estate is a sight to behold soaring 1,396 foot tall high. Revealing the highly anticipated images of inside the prestigious Penthouse, the co-developers of the building CIM Group and Macklowe Properties want to give the world an insight into residential living at an unprecedented elevation in New York City.
Internationally respected architect and designers Robert Couturier furnished the 86th floor residence of the 96-storey condominium tower in New York’s most sought after neighbourhood. This Park Avenue residence, the first completed Penthouse in the building, is a natural fit for the designer who proclaimed in his book Designing Paradises, “I’m completely addicted to luxury. I have no ability for anything else.”
“432 Park Avenue is an incredible palette to work with, one that would be the envy of any designer, and it has been an excellent experience to be creative and imaginative within that palette. The brief, to create a cultured apartment, has been perfectly met through the use of inspired colour choices and knockout furnishings from various eras, by designers including Vladimir Kagan and Gio Ponti, and some truly fun and wild pieces such as the welded bronze desk and credenza by Maarten Bass,” comments Robert Couturier.
Shown in all its splendour, the first-glimpse images perfectly represent the style and elegance for which Robert Couturier has become renowned. Forming a unique sense of space, a plethora of fabrics have been used within the Penthouse adding a sense of softness to the interior scheme. Vintage 20th century designs are paired with contemporary furniture pieces to create an interior style as awe-inspiring as the breath-taking views. The Penthouse also includes many signature furniture pieces customer designed by Couturier himself and fabricated in a Paris workshop.
The masterful interior scheme is reflected in the works of art curated by Robert Couturier throughout the space, including works by Hubert le Gall, Christopher Kutz, Michael Eastman, and a dramatic floor-to-ceiling installation of Sol Lewitt’s Wall Drawing #678 occupying the entire south wall of the living and dining room. The oversized 10-foot by 10-foot windows simultaneously flood the residence with natural light and artfully frame the spectacular view of New York’s skyline and surrounding rivers and bridges.
Setting the new standard for luxury lifestyle living in New York, this Penthouse offers impeccable 360-degree views over Central park and the George Washington Bridge to the south, Brooklyn to the east and New Jersey to the west. Towering above all other condominiums in New York, the views from the model residence are at a unique vantage point of 1,132 feet in elevation.
The luxurious abode comprises three bedrooms, four full bathrooms, including double master baths, a powder room, and a library. Just as the other residences within the building, the home features a private elevator foyer, an impressive entrance gallery, a windowed eat-in kitchen with marble breakfast bar, oak flooring, and master bathrooms featuring statuary book-matched marble floors and walls, a freestanding soaking tub, and a 1,200-pound solid cubic Bianco Sivec marble vanity. The Penthouse and its astounding views makes it one of the most prestigious residences in New York City.
Three floors of amenity spaces within 432 Park Avenue were revealed earlier this year and are focused on dining, entertainment, and wellness. Each of these floors are double-height, with approximately 28-foot ceilings and two tiers of 432 Park’s signature 10-foot by 10-foot windows, creating voluminous interiors abundant with light. Residents can enjoy an exclusive dining and hospitality experience including a dining room, lounge and landscaped terrace. There is also a high-end fitness centre, featuring steam, sauna, and massage therapy rooms, all of which is programmed and managed by star trainer Jay Wright’s The Wright Fit.
This impressive building also offers the additional amenities for all residences; a 75-foot two-lane indoor swimming pool, billiards room with library, 18-seat screening room with 220-inchscreen, and an executive boardroom containing state-of-the-art teleconferencing equipment and seating for 14 around a custom marble conference table.
Occupancy at 432 Park Avenue began earlier this year and the current availability of select remaining residences starts from $16,950,000.
