Eighty-eight stories up in the sky, overlooking the Hudson River, a sprawling, glass-fronted penthouse at 15 Hudson Yards has just taken center stage in the NYC real estate galaxy. Listed for $32 million, and one of four penthouse units that will eventually be for sale, 15 Hudson Yards #PH88B is currently showpiece No. 1 in the massive, $20 billion development transforming the West Side of Manhattan.
For anyone interested, 88 floors up means that this penthouse unit — one of four that will top 15 Hudson Yards — is 900 feet in the air. The duplex unit sports 116 linear feet of glass delivering a 270-degree view of the Hudson River, New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty, and a span of the Manhattan skyline stretching from the Freedom Tower to Madison Square Garden. As an added bonus, the penthouse overlooks Vessel, an interactive public landmark designed by Thomas Heatherwick, which is now taking shape.
The penthouse offers a massive space — 5,161 square feet in all — including a great room with 26-foot ceilings. The rest of the first floor contains a fireplace, dining room, separate library and a custom Bulthaup kitchen with Miele appliances. Listing notes also mention a room on this floor suitable for a staff bedroom.
A glass staircase leads to the second level, which opens onto a sitting and media room with a wet bar overlooking the great room. A hallway leads to three bedroom suites, including a master with dual dressing rooms and bathrooms. Other features in the unit include a private elevator, two utility rooms, a service entrance, and total of 6.5 bathrooms.
Residents can make use of 40,000 square feet of amenities spanning three floors at 15 Hudson Yards, which was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group.
The 50th floor contains fitness and wellness facilities, including an aquatic center with a 75-foot, three-lane swimming pool, yoga studio, private spa and beauty bar.
The 51st floor features two private dining suites, including wine storage and tasting rooms; a lounge with Hudson River views; a club room with billiards tables, card tables and a large-screen TV; a screening room; a business center; a golf club lounge; and an atelier with communal working table and lounge seating.
