    Construction of ONE57 in New York has now completed and the tower is undergoing fit-out. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc for Extell, the 306m-high residential tower began construction in 2009 during the economic downturn.

    Now undergoing finishing works, the 90-storey skyscraper has attracted great interest from domestic and international buyers although it is not occupied at this time. The interior design was overseen by Thomas Juul-Hasen and the apartments take an ‘L’ shape in line with the building footprint.

    The bottom 25 storeys of the tower are home to the Park Hyatt New York, open since September. The hotel’s 210 guest rooms range from 475 sq ft to a generous 530 sq ft and have been designed by Yabu Pushelberg.

    A 1,845 sq ft fitness centre and a luxurious spa are on offer to guests of the hotel, who are also welcome to enjoy 350 ‘gallery-worthy’ artworks, 10 of which were crafted specifically for the Park Hyatt New York.

    Located within a stone’s throw of Central Park, ONE57 rises up over the city in a smooth motion, its summit turned to face the park. The façade is animated with vertical bands of glass in contrasting colours which wave across the surface with the ‘energy of a waterfall’.
