For a first project, this is about as good as it gets. David Chipperfield Architects have designed The Bryant, a lavish 34-story, 57-unit building that stands at 16 West 40th Street, overlooking Bryant Park (hence it’s name) in the heart of New York City.
And while there are 55 other luxurious residences that fill the building’s 16th through 34th floors—each of which has floor-to-ceiling windows, oak floors, and enough marble to make the David jealous—we’d like to fix your attention on the two triplex penthouse units that crown this beauty.
One of them—unit B—has just recently gone on the market for $16.3 million. The 4,078-square-foot penthouse, which includes sweeping views of the Empire State Building, has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
In addition to the interior space, Penthouse B also has 1,313 square feet of outdoor space that a potential tenant could access via a 438-square-foot loggia (or open-ended top-tier level). The space includes a private rooftop terrace with an adjacent solarium, which has its own wet bar and powder room. A private elevator makes for easy access to all levels.
Perks that come along with the apartment include 11-foot-high ceilings; heated flooring; windowed prep kitchen; and a Red Jasper marble fireplace, which rises into the master bedroom. Besides being framed by windows, the master bathroom also features a hand-carved, solid marble freestanding bathtub. Fill it with water, bubbles, or gold coins.
The building opens in Fall 2017. For more information on The Bryant or to inquire about Penthouse B, click here.
