Grand living comes in many forms in New York City. Take the recent listing at 111 West 57th Street
where a new owner will have the chance to live in an opulent duplex penthouse atop Steinway Hall, an honor unlike any other. A cultural landmark and classical music venue, Steinway Hall is an iconic prewar building designed by the same architects who created Grand Central Station. Classical music fans, architecture lovers, or anyone with an eye for luxurious properties will swoon over the structure’s incredible penthouse now listed for $21 million.
First completed in 1925, the penthouse was reimagined by SHoP Architects
with interior architecture by Studio Sofield
, transforming it into a modern marvel while still maintaining the core of its architectural roots. Features such as coved walls, a great room with a 26-foot vaulted ceiling, an impressive 300-foot decorative steel crown, stepped paneled doors, and patterned solid oak floors all pay homage to the expansive unit's history.
The duplex offers 5,269-square-feet of interior space with three bedrooms and four bathrooms, including a master suite and private terraces located on both floors. The extravagant home also boasts design elements such as a powder room finished in jewel onyx, private elevators that lead to a foyer, and white Silverian marble and Cristallo Gold quartzite in the full bathrooms. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with wine storage, convection, steam and speed ovens from Gaggenau in the kitchen.
Made up of historic Steinway Hall and a newly constructed tower, this stunner at 111 West 57th Street is the second tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. With this landmark penthouse perched on the 20th floor, the new owner will have the opportunity to soak in the greenery of Central Park from their private 2,500-square-foot terrace while the second south-facing terrace features a view of Steinway Hall's restored copper roof and lantern.
The building offers numerous benefits with a stylish and opulent lobby, a secure entrance, and access to an 82-foot two-lane pool, sauna, steam and treatment rooms, a fitness center, a private dining room, and concierge services.Amy Williamson, Shari Scharfer Rollins, Janice Chang, and J.
