Midtown Manhattan has always been in-demand, but the recent influx of businesses and luxury buildings to crop up in the neighborhood has officially made it an enclave without rival. The driving force behind the neighborhood’s recent rise in profile, it seems, is Manhattan View, a stylish condo building that is earning high praise from longtime Manhattanites and transplants alike, thanks to its convenient location, wealth of amenities, and stunning interior design. From the ground floor to the building’s massive penthouse, Manhattan View is a game-changer for the neighborhood.
If there’s one thing discerning Manhattanites have come to expect from their homes, it’s amenities. For years, many luxury buildings have tried to skate by on bare bones amenities packages, offering an attended lobby or fitness center, but Manhattan View understands that the best way to cater to New Yorkers’ busy schedules is to offer all those little extras under one roof.
One of the main activities that gets skimped on when we’re pressed for time is taking care of ourselves with a workout, but Manhattan View makes it easier than ever to get fit without having to trek to the gym. Instead, the building offers one of the city’s most comprehensive fitness centers — in the form of a private Equinox gym — where residents can lift weights, get in a cardio workout, take a dip in the pool, or even challenge some friends to a game of horse on the building’s indoor basketball court. The four-legged friends who could use a little TLC are in luck, too; the building’s private doggie daycare and gym lets Fido get out some energy while meeting his fellow furry neighbors.
While Manhattan View’s amenities are as desirable as they are comprehensive, the meticulously designed interiors inside the building make each one a work of art that residents will be eager to come home to. Helmed by Drake/Anderson co-founder Jamie Drake, the open-concept living spaces are awash in calming neutral hues and accents that blend seamlessly with any design scheme, from wide plank oak flooring to lacquer cabinetry. Offsetting the blank canvas feel that so many homes start with are the graceful nods to Drake’s unique vision, like Calacatta marble showers, Carrara marble floors, and Gaggenau appliances in the kitchen, as well as views of the city that stretch as far as the eye can see.
For the ultimate in convenience, each residence has been outfitted with smarthome technology, as well, making everything from light switches to security features accessible at the touch of a screen. For those who want a more personal touch, each home also has the option of being customized by designers like Faia’s Michael Gabellini, Alexandra Champalimaud, and Neal Beckstedt. While the comfort and convenience offered to residents may make it easy to find reasons to stay in, those who need a change of scenery for their evening plans can grill up their dinner in the building’s outdoor dining space or get to work at the business center.
The comfort and amenities of a convenient Manhattan address and the custom design of a private home are no longer mutually exclusive. At Manhattan View, apartment living has been elevated to an art form, with stylish interiors and amenities catering to virtually every interest under one roof.
