About Waldorf Astoria Residences New York
The restoration team at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill worked tirelessly to freshen up Waldorf Astoria Residences New York and ensure the building’s historical integrity remained intact. While honoring the structure’s stunning art-deco architecture and history of hosting illustrious figures, the team converted 1,400 guest rooms into 375 condominium residences and 375 hotel suites, making residence at the location an attainable dream. Because the building is formally protected under New York’s Landmarks Preservation Law, the restoration specialists were tasked with the art of careful updates, even undoing previous alterations that undermined the intended aesthetic, reinstating the opulence that makes the Waldorf Astoria a celebrated landmark.
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.

As an homage to the Waldorf Astoria’s long history of arts patronage, the world-renowned auctioneer and collector Simon de Pury curated an art collection from new, young artists who will help breathe new life into the historic building. Interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon updated the public spaces by blending restored materials with contemporary finishes and furnishings, creating continuity between the hotel’s past and present. And the bright, modern residences were carefully curated by celebrated French interior designer Jean-Louis Deniot. His goal: create the “backdrop to be as captivating as possible, without being overpowering.”
