In Midtown West of Manhattan, the Residences at 400 Fifth Avenue presents a stunning 60-floor structure spanning a total gross area of approximately 570,000 square feet. This property is designed with a curving façade segment at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and West 36th Street that continues the rhythm of the windows as well as that of the front façade.
Like its adjacent historic structures, it displays limestone cladding at the base that showcases the new building’s materials. It appears as a distinctive tower as part of the New York City skyline, composed of a simple shape with vertical bands of masonry and windows capped by a metallic crown. The architecture is designed to harmonize and not compete with the nearby landmarks. Capping the tower are inclined planes of finished stainless steel between masonry columns.
This new building hosts 214 hotel rooms, including 157 guest rooms and 57 hotel apartments, while the uppermost section of the tower holds 190 luxurious residential condominiums. The residential apartments in this property range from one- to six-bedroom units elegantly designed with top-of-the-line fixtures and appliances.
In addition, the Residences at 400 Fifth Avenue host a large variety of amenities, including the gracious lobby, a restaurant, bar, spa and health club.
In the surrounding environs there are an array of landmarks, restaurants, shops and recreational spots. The Grand Central Terminal is not far away, and a visit simply to admire its impressive architecture, inside and out, is well worth the walk.
