One Hundred East Fifty Third Street by Foster + Partners is New York’s newest modernist architectural landmark located in the heart of Midtown’s Cultural District. Adjacent to Mies van der Rohe’s famed Park Avenue Seagram Building, One Hundred East Fifty Third Street’s slender form and minimalist exterior is intended to provide a counterpoint to the Seagram’s bronze edifice.
Acclaimed French Chef Joël Robuchon, who has earned more Michelin stars than any other chef in the world, will occupy the first two levels of One Hundred East Fifty Third Street with two diverse and exciting restaurant and bar experiences. Joseph Dirand, the award winning architect and interior designer, will head the design of the multi-concept space. Residents of One Hundred East Fifty Third Street will have exclusive access to in-residence dining in addition to reservation and seating privileges at the restaurant.
The 63-story tower sets back from the 9-story podium, and the two building components possess identifiably different residences – tower homes and loft apartments – that are generously proportioned and seamlessly integrated with infrastructure for modern cosmopolitan living. This full-service building is a rare opportunity to experience impeccable gallery-style living in 94 well-appointed residences ranging from alcove lofts to four bedrooms. Interiors elegantly conceal service functions, balance soaring views and domestic intimacy, and allocate generous space for art. Kitchens throughout are outfitted in Foster + Partners designed millwork and integrated Gaggenau appliances. Aged oak cabinetry is specifically paired to Carrara marble or stainless steel backsplashes, whose shelving is embedded with ventilation and lighting.
Foster + Partners employ concrete elements within the lofts – floors finished in diamond-polished high-grade concrete, architectural concrete walls, and ribbed concrete ceilings with integrated reveals for custom lighting. In tower homes, ceilings up to 11 feet in height and Carlisle 8” oversized wide-plank white oak flooring draw attention to views and light. The remarkable transparency of the building’s low-iron glass skin, folded on its east and west facades, lends an aerie-like quality to all of the homes.
Celebrated interior designer and architect William T. Georgis contributes additional warmth and comfort with a selection of furnishings for both the amenity spaces and the 24-hour attended residential lobby. Hotel-like amenities include a wellness center, spa, 60-foot sunlit swimming pool, yoga and pilates rooms, library, lounges and world-class dining by Joël Robuchon. In all, One Hundred East Fifty Third Street is not simply a jewel of contemporary architecture, but also an invitation to rethink one’s standards of comfort and elegance.
