Apartments at David Chipperfield’s first ever New York residential building are now available to buy, with prices starting from $2.25 million.
The Bryant – located on W 40th Street in Midtown Manhattan – will hold 57 apartments ranging from one to four bedrooms, including two triplex penthouses. All residences in the polished concrete structure have floor-to-ceiling windows and terraces overlooking Bryant Park.
‘We tried to go away from the glass tower,’ Chipperfield told the New York Times, adding he wanted to instil a ‘classical elegance in terms of its symmetries and simple grids and order’.
The apartments, which take up floors 16 to 33 of the building, feature herringbone floors as well as bespoke cabinetry and concealed storage units. Kitchens and bathrooms include Italian marble finishes, while terrazo panels throughout the homes comprise concrete, marble and sandstone chips.
‘I think you can make architecture out of very simple things, it doesn’t have to be complicated,’ said Chipperfield. ‘The difference between a good building and a bad building normally resides in it being more thought about.’
A hotel will take over the lower third of The Bryant tower, while shops and restaurants will make up the ground floor.
One-bedroom apartments start from $2.25 million and two-bed properties will cost north of $3.1 million. The prices of three-bedroom, four-bedroom and penthouse residences are available on request.
The Bryant is expected to be complete in spring 2017.
