Rising 34 stories above Midtown’s Bryant Park, The Bryant gives residents the opportunity to not only live above the serene yet lively setting of this urban green space but also the chance to live in British architect David Chipperfield’s first ground-up residential tower in the United States. With its grid-like facade outlined in terrazzo, the building presents a modern take on natural materials that fit right into their surroundings. With panoramic skyline or park views from every residence at The Bryant, people can immerse themselves in the city from the tranquility of their own home.

Known for his humanist approach to design, architect David Chipperfield believes buildings should be built for their inhabitants. At The Bryant, he infused the architecture with the classical elegance of symmetries and grids, followed by materials that are both opulent and purposefully simple. A custom-made aggregate terrazzo on the exterior makes way for a lobby wrapped in black Portoro Extra marble with terrazzo floors running underfoot. A sleek bronze reception desk sits beneath a sculptural Viabizzuno chandelier. Blackened timber walls and fluted glass doors lead the way into the terrazzo-floored, leather-paneled Private Lobby Lounge.
Midtown is both the heart of the business district and a center for the arts. Most widely known for Times Square and as the home of global corporate headquarters, Midtown presents intoxicating variety. To the north are Central Park, Michelin-star restaurants, Fifth Avenue’s world-class shopping, and cultural institutions like the Museum of Modern Art. The south is anchored by beautiful green spaces like Bryant Park and Madison Square Park. The east is a dynamic blend that includes Rockefeller Center and the United Nations Headquarters. Venture further west in Midtown, and entertainment is abundant at Madison Square Garden and in the Theater District, while Hell’s Kitchen offers access to quaint eateries and the Hudson River Greenway.
The residences—which start on the 16th floor—exude warmth, with herringbone-patterned, quarter-sawn fumed oak flooring featuring radiant heat and a honed terrazzo border. A glass-enclosed wet room with rain shower and Duravit Vero soaking tub harnesses the feeling of a spa. In the kitchen, custom-designed white-lacquer cabinetry conceals integrated Gaggenau appliances, and Calacatta Gold marble surfaces keep the ambiance bright and airy. Floor-to-ceiling windows in each residence let in natural light and, along with terrazzo columns, frame views of the Empire State Building or, of course, Bryant Park—views that can also be enjoyed from Juliet balconies. And in the two triplex penthouses, which boast private roof decks and adjoining sunrooms, there are extra surprises: warm wood cabinetry in the kitchen and an oversized Red Jasper marble floating wall and integrated fireplace.
With the Park Terrace Hotel at the base of The Bryant, residents enjoy the benefits of hotel services including a sixth floor Club Living Room Lounge with a fireplace and full bar, along with a spacious outdoor terrace, both overlooking Bryant Park. In addition, residents have access to a fitness center and sauna.
The 100,000+ square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities include a stargazing observatory, an adults-only treehouse, and a rooftop garden (designed by acclaimed landscape architects West 8) that’s almost like a vertical city park. The sheer creativity and range of offerings are at least as distinctive as the tower’s impact on the city skyline.
