The Landmark Penthouse at 111 West 57th Street presents an extraordinary opportunity to reside atop historic Steinway Hall, one of Midtown New York's most cherished architectural and cultural landmarks. This unique, sprawling 5,269 sq ft duplex residence is designed for gracious living and entertaining on a grand scale, and features a spectacular great room with a vaulted ceiling and working fireplace, grand upper level master suite and extensive private terraces on both floors. This three-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom residence is ready for immediate occupancy.
Steinway Hall, originally designed by the celebrated firm Warren & Wetmore, is a distinguished monument to classical music that was completed in 1925. It has now been comprehensively reimagined by SHoP Architects and Studio Sofield to create a limited collection of light-filled, pre-war residences. Classic layouts and traditional features like coved walls, stepped paneled doors and intricately patterned solid oak floors are coupled with every contemporary comfort.
Elevators open directly into the Landmark Penthouse's formal entrance gallery with adjacent interior office and an exquisite powder room finished in jewel onyx. The south gallery leads to the monumental great room which boasts double-height, 26ft vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace and arched glass doors opening onto a 1,000 sq ft wraparound terrace with exposures south, east and west. The solid oak floors, 5 inch plank in custom smoke gray throughout, are laid in a parquet pattern in the great room. The windowed kitchen features a countertop and backsplash in Cristallo Gold quartzite and top-of-the-line appliances by Gaggenau, including convection, steam and speed ovens, an integrated coffee maker and zoned, refrigerated wine storage.
The north gallery leads to a windowed den with west exposures and a full bath finished in white Silverian marble. Two bedrooms open onto a 226 sq ft north-facing terrace and have full baths in white Silverian marble and Cristallo Gold quartzite.
A custom staircase leads to the upper level master suite, and opens directly onto a private 2,500 sq ft terrace with tree-top views of Central Park. The master suite features a generous dressing room along with a wet-bar with a gray Bitlis marble countertop and custom cabinetry. The luxurious master bath is finished in white onyx, and features a double vanity, a free-standing pure copper soaking tub in an opulent nickel finish handmade by William Holland, and a separate glass enclosed shower with custom bronze hardware by P.E. Guerin. A second south facing terraced area provides a unique perspective on Steinway Hall's distinctive and beautifully restored copper roof and lantern.
Residents at 111 West 57th Street will benefit from a gracious and secure entrance experience featuring a rare, private porte-cochere on 58th Street, and a lobby featuring opulent accents in limestone, marble, blackened steel and velvet, and a meticulously restored, original end-grain wood floor from Steinway Hall. Private residential amenities include an 82ft two-lane swimming pool with cabanas, separate sauna and treatment rooms, a double-height fitness center with mezzanine terrace, private dining room and chef's catering kitchen, residents' lounge with expansive terrace, meeting rooms and study, 24-hour attended entrances and dedicated concierge service.
