Madison Square Park Tower is changing Manhattan’s skyline. The 65-story glass skyscraper is the tallest in its Flatiron District neighbourhood, and because of various zoning laws surrounding it, its fantastic views will never be obstructed. While the building won’t be fully completed until 2018, 70% of the units have already sold, according to property developer Bruce Eichner.
Business Insider recently visited the 56th-floor apartment, which boasts a price tag of $A26.24 million and 360-degree views of the city. Ahead, get the full tour.
The tower sits at 45 East 22nd Street, at the base of New York's iconic Madison Square Park. While it is still unfinished, residents can begin moving in later this fall. The building's amenities will include a fitness center, golf simulator, basketball court, children's playroom, library, billiards, cards room, and a terrace with an outdoor grill.
The 56th-floor apartment we viewed has gorgeous views of the entire city and totals 4,655 square feet of space.
It also has a view of Rupert Murdoch's penthouse at One Madison, which he purchased for $A75.12 million in 2014.
Residents can accommodate large dinner parties in their homes, but if that's not big enough, they can also utilise one of the building's two entertaining spaces.
The kitchen has a marble countertop and backsplash, and above the island hangs a glass gantry for decorative storage.
But if you'd rather shower, there's a large rain shower head on the other side. Glass will be added to this one before people move in.
'The coolest thing in here is the ability to have a 360-degree view. Where in New York can you look over the borough of Brooklyn and see the Atlantic Ocean, or go out and look to the east and see the planes land at LaGuardia Airport?' Eichner said.
