On a sunny morning just two days ahead of the official opening of Hudson Yards, New York City’s new $US25 billion neighbourhood, I toured one of the brand-new penthouses in the development’s first residential tower.

In February, 15 Hudson Yards welcomed its first residents, and 60% of the building is already sold.

Back in January, I got a sneak peek of the 88-story tower’s amenities and a model unit on the 25th floor, and I was blown away by the lifestyle being sold along with the residences. Related Sales, LLC & Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group handle sales in the building.

This time, I got to see the crème de la crème: a four-bedroom penthouse on the 84th floor with sweeping city views. It’s priced at $US13,845,000 – and it’s not even the most expensive residence in the building. Condos range from $US4.3 million to $US32 million.

Here’s what it was like inside the penthouse.

I got the chance to check out a penthouse on the tower’s 84th floor. At 15 Hudson Yards, floors 81 through 88 all have four penthouses on each floor.

The residence’s 670-square-foot great room encompasses a living area and dining area.

Floor-to-ceiling windows make full use of one of the penthouse’s standout features: the city views. That’s the Empire State Building to the east.

And looking south, 15 Hudson Yards has unobstructed views of downtown Manhattan and One World Trade Center.

It was a sunny day when I visited, and the apartment was bright and warm.

Built-in shelving lines the wall behind the dining table.

The kitchen is outfitted with custom oak wood cabinetry and Miele appliances.

The kitchen offers views of the Empire State Building and the East River in the distance.

Bar stools and a separate breakfast nook provide additional eating areas.

Image

I headed down the hallway to check out the bedrooms and found that the rooms were tastefully decorated.

Image

All the furniture in the penthouse was custom made, and each bedroom had an en suite bathroom.

Image

One bedroom in the penthouse was styled as a den.

Image

The ceilings in the penthouse are nearly 11 feet in some places, leaving plenty of wall space for art.

Image

Lastly, I checked out the penthouse’s master suite.

Image

As to be expected, it was much more spacious than the other bedrooms.

Image

The master bathroom was absolutely beautiful …

… and continued the apartment’s broader theme of boasting fantastic views.

The bathroom also came outfitted with bath products from Bastide, a French company that sells $US52 dry oil mist and $US48 body cream.

Penthouse 84A’s price is $US13,845,000. And it’s not even the most expensive penthouse in the building. Condos start at $US4.3 million and go all the way up to $US32 million.

With its spacious layout, luxurious details, and breathtaking views, it was hard to believe this penthouse is less than half the price of other penthouses at 15 Hudson Yards.
