CetraRuddy worked on the conversion of the building located at 135 West 52nd Street, which was formerly home to Flatotel, and turned it into 109-glitzy condos. The building features one-to-four bedroom apartments, four penthouse duplexes, and a triplex. Prices range from $1.5 million to $15 million for the largest penthouse in the building. The Chetrit Group, which partnered with Clipper Equity on this project, spent $250 million on the conversion.
The model units stand out particularly for the marble countertop in the kitchen and the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room.
The building is perhaps most famous for a permanent, 423-foot light installation by French designer Thierry Dreyfuss that stands like a lightsaber at the front of the building.
