The Building Series: Get to Know One57

Post Author


Designed by architect Christian de Portzamparc (who won the Pritzker Prize), One57 is not only the tallest residential building in town—it’s also home to the most expensive dwelling in the city. Standing at over 90 stories, the building is not only one of the many new mix-use buildings that are in the race to becoming New York City’s tallest residential buildings, it’s the epitome of global luxury and lifestyle sophistication.

Over 1,000-feet tall, the building is home to the Park Hyatt’s flagship hotel but offers a private entrance for its 92 residences. Due to the large number of billionaires who own apartments in this ultra-tall, ultra-chic building, One57 has appropriately been nicknamed “The Billionaire Building".

One57 is conveniently located near Central Park, Rockefeller Center and the 5th Avenue shopping district with easy access to the city’s top neighborhoods.

Insider Tips

Parks and Nature
Central Park is easily accessible via the private 58th Street entrance. Residents can walk to the park’s southern entrance on 59th Street or take a town car to the upper portion of the park for a little privacy. While many residents enjoy a good run in the onsite fitness center, most residents also enjoy heading up to the park for some of the best running trails in the city. Residents head to the Boathouse in the summer for cocktails with a view or to the Tavern on the Green for unparalleled service.

A 15-minute jog away sits Riverside Park. Flanking the Hudson River, the park offers a quiet retreat from city life. Many residents enjoy the dog run and picnic facilities on warm days. Designed by Robert Moses, Riverside Park was built for the super wealthy. Its location on Manhattan’s Upper West Side ensures that Manhattan’s elite can still enjoy the park’s amenities today.

Many residents head to Clinton DeWitt Park for a more low-key setting. The park is situated on the Hudson River, so visitors still enjoy beautiful river views without the crowds of Central Park and Riverside Park.

Midtown is home to some of the most luxurious restaurants in Manhattan. The Russian Tea Room is a favorite of both locals and visitors of New York City. The iconic over-the-top decorative elements, complementary colors and bright red awning are recognizable to people from all over the world.

Le Bernardin, a French Restaurant near Columbus Circle, just won a spot on the top 50 restaurants in the world. The restaurant has also been awarded three Michelin stars. Serving high-end minimalistic French fare with bold flavors, Le Bernardin is a neighborhood favorite.

Situated conveniently near Lincoln Center, Bar Boulud offers medium-range French fare in a more casual setting. The cave-like setting is the perfect place for a romantic evening away from the public eye. A pre fixe menu for only $45 is offered and features three courses.

Plenty of nightlife graces Central Park South. Many residents and visitors alike love heading to Times Square for a Broadway show and dinner at Carmines. Luckily, there’s also plenty of higher culture in the neighborhood too. One57 is on the same street as Carnegie Hall, so residents enjoy popping over for a quick concert or show.

Most of One57’s residents and guests stick to 5th Avenue for high-end shopping. Bergdorf Goodman is very close to the high rise as is Saks Fifth Avenue. Many also head directly to Prada and Tiffany’s for their high-end shopping fixes.
