Led by architect Norman Foster, Foster + Partners has designed One Hundred East Fifty Third Street with special regard for the neighboring Seagram Building in Manhattan.

A curtain wall provides a counterpoint to the Seagram Building’s palette of bronze hues, and its faceted east and west facades further distinguish the new icon from its famous predecessor. Meanwhile, the relationship between the 63-story skyscraper and its nine-story base is melodious, evoking the elegant shapes of the Seagram Building.

Located on the 10th and 11th floors at the tower’s base, this one-of-a-kind two-floor home offers the exclusive opportunity to own the largest outdoor terrace across one level in any Manhattan condominium.

The expansive four-bedroom, four-bath apartment encompasses an astounding 6,646 square feet and features soaring ceilings, an intricately designed sculptural staircase and unprecedented architectural detail.

This residence was developed by developer/art collector Aby Rosen.

 

The lower level of the home is an entertainer’s dream and features a striking great room with soaring ceilings and bar area as well as a spacious dining room. The residence’s ultramodern kitchen is also located on the lower level and is outfitted with custom Foster + Partners-designed wire-brushed oak cabinetry, Italian Carrara marble knife-edge countertops and backsplash, and integrated Gaggenau and Sub-Zero appliances, including wine storage.

The master suite encompasses the entire south end of the home’s upper level and includes a massive bedroom space seamlessly connected to a master bathroom by way of a private dressing room built out with Foster + Partners-designed custom millwork closets. More akin to a private spa, the master bath features Silver Striato travertine radiant heated flooring, a freestanding soaking tub and a separate low-iron glass shower with a steam system. In addition to the master suite, three additional bedrooms are located on this level, each outfitted with its own luxurious bathroom.

 

The Duplex Residence at 100 East Fifty Third Street has just been listed for $29.75 million.
