Closings are underway at The Wales, the former Hotel Wales-turned-condominium building located at 1295 Madison Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Interiors for the iconic building were remastered by design studio PINTO and include 21 two- to four-bedroom residences priced from $3.585 million, as well as a newly constructed five-bedroom penthouse asking $23 million

The Wales residences are appointed with oversized windows, white oak herringbone flooring, custom cornices, and kitchens with art deco-inspired patterns and designs. Each home features ASKO or Electrolux washer/dryers, and select residences offer wet bars with a Sub-Zero undercounter refrigerator. The crowning penthouse spans the entire floor, offering nearly 4,200 square feet of interior space and another 3,114 square feet of exterior space across two levels. A private elevator, coffered ceilings, an elegant fireplace, and an expansive roof terrace overlooking Central Park are among the home’s additional highlights.
