We've long been obsessed with architect/developer Cary Tamarkin's 456 West 19th Street, another one of his loft-inspired "mezzanine buildings" chock full of duplexes. What makes this one a little different from similar Tamarkin designs are the waves of bricks up top, which create penthouse balconies and allude to the Hudson River a couple blocks away. Though we've already had an in-depth look inside the building and all its multi-paned steel window madness, we couldn't resist the invite to check out two newly completed penthouses. In fact, don't tell but we never left the first time around. They're going to need a restraining order to keep us away from this place.
First up in the photo gallery is a modeled 2BR/2BA duplex on the eighth and ninth floors, with an 1,129-square-foot private terrace and, 'natch, one of those curbed balconies. After that is a look inside the empty adjacent 3BR penthouse with great High Line (and Frank Gehry and Jean Nouvel) views. Prices on these penthouse puppies start at $6.25 million and go up to nearly $8 million for the big boys. Take a peek inside and then rank your favorite West Chelsea starchitect buildings in the comments to alleviate your Friday boredom.
