Harry Macklowe’s 432 Park Avenue Successor Shows Off Model Residences
The luxury New York condominium developed by Harry Macklowe as the successor to 432 Park Avenue has unveiled its first residences. The 35-story tower at 200 East 59th Street, designed by CetraRuddy with interiors by Nancy J. Ruddy and operated by Centurion Real Estate Investors, features column-free living spaces and plenty of indoor and outdoor areas, with 30 floors of wraparound terraces. CetraRuddy hand-selected Calacatta and Siberian white and mink marble for the project.
“We wanted to complement the building’s iconic, streamlined form by bringing warmth and tactility to the interiors through organic materials like cashmere, velvet, weathered bronze, patinated wood, shagreen, and even petrified stones,” Ruddy said of the model residences. “A neutral palette of design elements is accented with curated features that create energy and vibrancy, so that the homes nod to the spirit and richness of the city, but also provide residents with a sense of serenity and calm.” Available residences are priced from $1.795 million.
Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Coming to New Orleans Waterfront
A distinctive office tower that has stood empty along the New Orleans riverfront since 2011 is being reimagined as a Four Seasons hotel and a collection of luxury condos. The hotel and condos will occupy the former World Trade Center, an X-shaped 33-story building designed by Edward Durrell Stone in the 1960s. Located in the heart of the city’s central business district, the project will consist of a hotel on the building’s sixth through 18th floors and fully serviced condos, priced between $2 million and $10 million, on the building’s upper floors. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has already purchased a condo in the project, the New York Times reports. An observation deck open to the public will crown the building.

Waldorf Astoria New York’s Beloved Clock Gets Revamp Amid Building’s Redevelopment
The Waldorf Astoria New York’s lobby has undergone a reimagining that includes the complete restoration of the iconic World’s Fair Clock that has occupied a prominent place in the hotel’s Fifth Avenue location since 1931. The clock, created for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, is now on display at the New-York Historical Society as part of a long-term loan while the Waldorf itself undergoes its transformation into a 375-key hotel with 375 luxury condominiums on the upper floors.
“The World’s Fair Clock has always been a famous meeting place for guests and visitors. The clock will return to the heart of Waldorf Astoria New York in the main lobby, which is now a New York City landmark,” said Andrew Miller, CEO of Dajia U.S. “Our exceptional team of architects and designers has been meticulous in their work to restore this heritage space and others throughout the building to their original splendor while fully modernizing the experience for guests and residents alike.”
