In just a few months from now, the 19-story, Morris Adjmi-designed condo building on West 17th Street will welcome its first residents, and in anticipation of that, developer Toll Brothers City Living has now unveiled a model home at the condo.
The three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom unit spans just under 2,000 square feet and comes fitted with wide plank white oak flooring, marbled kitchen countertops, and oversized windows.
This condo is one of 52 that make up the total number of apartments in this building, located at 55 West 17th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues (closer to Sixth). Apartments here come in one-to-four bedroom variants, and aside from the features mentioned in the model unit, the homes are fitted with Bianco Dolomiti marble walls and floors in the master bathrooms, custom oak cabinetry and Gaggenau appliances in the kitchen, and a washer and dryer in each unit.
Amenities here include a landscaped terrace on the second floor, which comes with a gas grill and seating, a resident’s lounge with a billiards table, a screening room, a children’s playroom, and a fitness center among others.
Sales launched back in September 2015 with prices starting at $1.59 million. Toll Brothers informed us that 70 percent of the units have sold so far. On StreetEasy, the currently available units range from $1.8 million for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit, and go up to $11.49 million for a four-bedroom, four-bathroom condo.
In his design, Morris Adjmi was inspired by the cast-iron metalwork of the Ladies Mile Historic District, and chose to use handmade Petersen brick from Denmark for the facade, and bronze architectural metal for the cornice, window frames, and entrance details.
“When designing 55 West 17th Street, I paid reference to the eclectic neighborhood with a mix of traditional and modern materials,” Adjmi said in a statement.
This ground-up project has been in the works since 2014, and is located less than a mile away from another Toll Brothers condo building—the OMA-designed project at 121 East 22nd Street. The condo on West 17th Street is looking to welcome its first residents sometime this spring, and is also hoping to achieve LEED Gold certification when it is complete.
