Nearly two years after sales launched, Macklowe Properties’s 35-story condo on East 59th Street, is nearing the finish line. Located just a few blocks away from Macklowe’s marquee property, 432 Park Avenue, this CetraRuddy-designed tower has a total of 67 apartments that for the most part are one and two-bedroom units.
The building is distinct in that all the apartments here have outdoor space thanks to the wraparound terraces that envelope the entire structure. What’s also neat is the fact that the interiors are column free—instead they’ve been pushed out to the exteriors of the building, and help break up the outdoor space into sections. Once complete, these columns will be illuminated at night.
Macklowe declined to provide a sales update for the condo, but StreetEasy shows a handful of apartments in contract. Units here start at $1.875 million and go up to $17.96 million. The building also has three full-floor penthouses at the top of the building.
The condo was designed in a way that there are only between 2-3 apartments per floor, and all of them are corner units. They have floor-to-ceiling windows, and ceilings that are 10 feet tall (the penthouses have 14-foot-tall ceilings). The balconies range in size from 7 to 12 feet deep and 22 to 150 feet long. Back inside, the apartments have white oak flooring, white Calacatta and Siberian white and mink marble, and Miele appliances in the kitchen.
Recently Macklowe unveiled a couple of model homes on the 22nd floor of the building, and thanks to that we have our first proper peek inside this development.
Residents at 200 East 59th Street will also have access to a host of amenities like a fitness center; a private dining room with a marble fireplace and catering kitchen; a landscaped outdoor terrace; and bicycle storage; Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is handling sales, and the first set of residents are expected to move in early next year.
