Oct 28, 2021 | By: Perri Ormont Blumberg
This jaw-dropping duplex delights at every turn, from the private elevator opening directly into the residence to the floor-to-ceiling windows providing matchless views. New to the market as of October 2021, this 6,620-square-foot duplex on the full 55th and 56th floors is sure to make a lasting impression on even the most discerning of buyers.
“The Duplex at One Madison is quintessential New York combined with high-end Italian design. Every element is custom-made and manufactured by Italian craftsmen,” says Matteo Rignanese, licensed real estate salesperson with R New York. “What makes this property truly one-of-a-kind is its location, nestled perfectly between Midtown and Downtown with Madison Square Park as its playground,” he continues, adding that the residence’s immersive unobstructed 360 degree view is simply unparalleled.
Throughout the sprawling abode — including the eight roomy bedrooms split between the two floors — light-filled views of the East and Hudson Rivers, Madison Square Park, and Manhattan’s skyline abound. In addition to ample living and entertaining space, the primary suite boasts a walk-in closet and a spa-like bathroom with a direct sightline to the glimmering gold-colored cupola of the Metropolitan Life Tower (now the swanky New York Edition Hotel). Both the 55th- and 56th-floor elevator entrances give way to a private foyer with expansive southern panoramas.
Completed in 2013, the 60-story building features architecture by CetraRuddy and interiors designed by Yabu Pushelberg. The residence, originally conceived as a duplex, was split into two full-floor condominiums prior. This impressive listing unites the recently gut-renovated 56th floor and the raw 55th floor, and can be purchased as-is or completed to the specifications of the approved plans, reflected in the pictures.
Inside One Madison, developer Related Companies has spared no expense in bringing enticing amenities to residents of the coveted luxury condominium. Some standout offerings include an indoor pool erected within marble-clad walls, a yoga room, an Equinox Fitness Club, a spa with a glass-enclosed steam room, a children’s playroom, and One Club at One Madison, which offers bespoke lifestyle services and venue space for everyday leisure and special celebrations alike. Attentive staff also see that your every need is taken care of, whether it’s delivering an important package or ensuring your private party in the building’s dining room and lounge, complete with fare cooked up à la minute in the building’s catering kitchen, goes off without a hitch.
The bustling Flatiron District is a hip and thriving area ripe with commercial activities, buzzy bistros, and unexpected gems. The centerpieces of the neighborhood are the verdant urban oasis of Madison Square Park and the iconic Flatiron Building that dates to 1902. There are destination shops and restaurants, too, like Eataly NYC Flatiron, the gourmet Italian hub beloved by locals and tourists alike, where pecorino, Grana Padano, and aged Gorgonzola are on hand for any last-minute cheese plate. This industrial-chic neighborhood also provides easy access to Gramercy, Chelsea, and Downtown Manhattan. Worth noting: During the work week, locals dot the streets of Flatiron, but on the weekend it can be a bit of a tourist hub thanks to the nearby Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden, along with an abundance of world-class restaurants like Cosme and Gramercy Tavern, bars, and subway stations.
