The Bryant NY is the newest midtown residential condo located on Bryant Park. The lower 15 floors will house a hotel from which residents can use its services on an a la carte basis. With units starting on the 16th floor, all residential units will have great views north to Bryant Park and south to the Empire State building in NY.
Since all units are corner apartments at The Bryant NY, with at least double exposure, each unit will draw in light no matter where one is located in the building. We especially like the slim-profile, floor-to-ceiling sliding windows with Juliet balconies.
David Chipperfield, award winning British architect created this unique building in minimalist design, used terrazzo, both inside and out, as the main structural element of the building. We have never seen terrazzo used in this manner in any other NYC condos, so are excited to see the building when it is completed in 2017. Currently, Chipperfield is designing a new wing for modern and contemporary art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
The Bryant Park neighborhood has been in the state of change for many years, with Manhattan’s core becoming more and more residential. A testament to this new trend is that a Whole Foods opening up only 1 block away. Occupancy for The Bryant NY Condo is expected for 2017.
