The latest condo in Nomad—which is positively booming with new developments, in both the residential and commercial realm—has officially hit the market.
Developers JD Carlisle Development and Fosun International Limited have launched sales at 15 East 30th Street, aka Madison House, with nearly 200 apartments throughout the building. The tower, designed by Handel Architects, distinguishes itself from the pack of new neighborhood skyscrapers in a few ways: It’s taller than the rest, at 805 feet, and has an angular crown made of glass and terra cotta.
Inside, the apartments were designed by Gachot Studios, which describes the style it was going for as “warm minimalism.” What that means: natural materials throughout (including rift wood flooring, Italian marble counters in kitchens, and Grecian stone in the bathrooms. Even the smallest one-bedroom units, measuring just under 1,000 square feet, have spacious living rooms, high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows (and depending where an apartment is located, that may come with an Empire State Building view).
As for amenities, those will also be plush: Residents will have access to a 75-foot pool, a gym, a library, and a landscaped roof garden, among other perks.
The smallest units in the building are one-bedrooms, starting at $1.4 million; the priciest apartment that’s currently for sale is 3,416-square-foot four-bedroom, asking $13.73 million. (There are also three penthouses, pricing and details for which are TBD.) Sales will be handled by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
The project was, at one point, the subject of ire from residents of a neighboring condo, who charged that the developers used mechanical spaces on the lower floors of the building to boost its height. But after a small setback, construction began in earnest a few years back, and the whole thing is now expected to be complete by next year.
Madison House is one of a handful of gleaming new towers on the rise in Nomad, including Rafael Viñoly’s 277 Fifth Avenue; 262 Fifth Avenue, a planned supertall designed by Russian firm Meganom; and the Rockefeller Group’s Rose Hill, underway on East 29th Street.
