American’s most famous skyline has a new architecture icon, New York by Gehry.
This gleaming 76 floor residential skyscraper is dramatic. So is the cost to live there. A penthouse costs $ 65,000 a month to rent. Most units range from $ 3,000 to $ 12, 000 a month.
And there’s no shortage of renters, says marketer Clifford Finn:
“There never have been a lot of rental buildings that spoke to the high end market. And most of that product was always condominium. And so there was a pent-up demand from people that were always looking to rent or purchase for, for various reasons.”
“What I wanted to do was …”
The building is named for its famed architect Frank Gehry and inspired by 17th century Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Ecstasy of Saint Theresa. The art work’s great folds are reflected in the building’s undulating façade.
In his new tower, Gehry resurrected the bay window seen in many old New York buildings.
“But if there’s a bay window, you walk two more feet forward and you are in outer space, so that the window surrounds you.”
On the top floor, they are constructing three penthouses.
From this height, you can see the Statue of Liberty, to the new World Trade Center Tower and to the city’s Great Bridges.
Finn says Gehry also designed the interiors. Generous bedrooms, open floor plans and modern kitchens define the units.
There are extraordinary amenities too, a fitness studio, a game room with pool tables, and even virtual golf, plus a movie theater and an in-door, out-door pool.
And it’s not only Americans who are inspired to move in.
“We have had members of royal families from various countries visiting and renting the building. We have had international students renting the building. We have had captains of industry, people in finance.”
The New York Times Newspaper calls the shimmering metallic Tower the finest skyscraper to rise in New York in the last 46 years.
