Even the pricey units at 1045 Park Avenue aren't perfect, but most design problems can be solved with more money. Designer Guillaume Gentet (of this duplex at The Greenwich) had a budget of $142/square foot to redesign a 2,100-square-foot, full-floor pad at 1045 Park. The objective: redo a single male finance exec's apartment to make room for the family he didn't have yet. The renovations included turning a hall closet into a powder room, adding more cabinets and a walk-in closet, and converting a maid's room into a wine tasting room. Not a bad idea even if the family doesn't materialize. Some post-renovation photos in the gallery above.
