One of the two penthouses in the future tallest tower of the Flatiron District is now on the market for $38 million, the New York Post first reported. This sprawling duplex penthouse features over 6,000 square feet of space, floor to ceiling windows, and views of the Empire State Building, One World Trade Center, and both the Hudson and East Rivers.
The penthouse is part of the Continuum Company-developed, 65-story building rising at 45 East 22nd Street. When complete the building will stand 777 feet tall, making it the tallest tower in the neighborhood.
The building features a total of 83 units ranging from one-bedroom to four-bedroom apartments. Almost all the units in the building are now in contract, according to StreetEasy, with the least expensive one-bedroom at the development going for $2.45 million.
Continuum hired Kohn Pendersen Fox to carry out the design for the building. And as the CEO of Continuum, Ian Bruce Eichner told Curbed when we toured the sales gallery for the building last year, the project tried to incorporate characteristics of the neighborhood in its design. The mostly glass structure sits on top of a five-story granite clad base that is inspired by 19th century architecture. Even the interiors, designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio have taken a leaf out of the same book.
While things might be looking rosy for this development in the Flatiron District, Continuum was unable to secure financing for a planned 680-unit building in Harlem, which the Durst Organization is expected to foreclose soon.
