If I was going to shoot one room into orbit as part of a permanent earth station, the great room of this out-of-this-world penthouse residence at 15 Hudson Yards would be my choice.
Perched on the 88th Floor of 15 Hudson Yards, part of the residential dynamic of the transformative West Side complex, the great room of this duplex penthouse offers 26-foot high ceilings with curved floor-to-ceiling windows. You are literally floating in the clouds 900 feet above the west side of Manhattan. This vast window, which extends beyond the great room, stretches 126 linear feet in total, offering a 270-degree panoramic view from the Statue of Liberty and the Freedom Tower to the south to the Empire State Building to the west.
Superlatives fall short in describing the great room because this space literally leaves one speechless. A series of massive floor-to-ceiling columns ring the room, reminding one of the great temples of ancient Greece. A double-sided fireplace clad in a stunning Obsidian black slate adorns the shared wall between the great room and the library (or fourth bedroom). There are no doors to this room as the space, and of course the windows, flow effortlessly into both the library and the formal dining area.
15 Hudson Yards is one of the city’s newly minted signature addresses. The glass silhouette rises 88 stories and at the time of this writing is one of the city’s tallest residential structures. Situated at the southwest corner of the Yards, the building sits directly on the Public Square and Gardens; it also adjoins the Highline to the south. The Shed, the new cultural center, and sculpture in its own right, adjoins 15HY as well.
Residence 88-A spans more than 5200 square feet across nine rooms while offering four bedrooms and 5.5 baths. The building, as you can imagine, is full service with a wide range of amenity space including the “highest residential roof deck in New York City.”
The price for this spectacular home is $29.5 million, about $5661 per square foot. It is exclusively available through the Corcoran Group. Should you wish you take a deeper look at this dramatic residence, and perhaps beyond, visit Linecity.com.
