New condo tower nears completion in NYC

One Madison Park is a new ground-up 50-storey luxury condominium building currently under construction in the Flatiron district of New York City. Designed by New York architect Cetra/Ruddy, the building, which is one the skinniest skyscrapers in the city, is clad with a glass and aluminum curtain wall with several types of glass accentuating the building forms.

The slender building is composed of dark bronze glass coupled with clear glass that is used on the 4 to 6 storey “pods” that cantilever to the north and east of the main building shaft, providing residents with 270 degree views of the city beyond. The building will house 70 homes ranging from 930 to 3,310 square feet including loggia residences located at the top of each pod that are full floor units with outdoor terraces. All residences are generously appointed in wood and stone materials with floor to ceiling glass. In addition to the residences, the building will include a spa and swimming pool with an outdoor park view terrace and a wine cellar.

Immediately adjacent to Cetra/Ruddy’s tower a new 22-storey tower is planned. The design for that building, by Dutch architect OMA, is to be unveiled on September 11th.
