Spanning from the 57th to 60th floors of the ultra-luxurious One Madison skyscraper in New York City, the 4 level 10,160 sq. ft. showcase top-floor penthouse residence is the prize-jewel of the building. The remarkable residence offers a soaring double-height great room with dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound terrace, with uninterrupted 360-degree cinematic skyline views of Manhattan, river to river and from the World Trade Center to the uptown tip of Madison Ave. In July 2014, the iconic penthouse was reportedly purchased for a staggering $57.3 million by News Corp. Chairman and billionaire media mogul, Rupert Murdoch.
This unrivalled residence presents unparalleled views from every room throughout the day: admire the new World Trade Center at breakfast in the eat-in kitchen; gaze upon six of the city’s most iconic bridges from the master suite; enjoy a close-up of the Empire State Building from the dining room; and marvel at the dramatically changing landscape of Manhattan’s West Side with awe-inspiring sunsets from the media room. This residential masterpiece was designed with the utmost sophistication and aesthetic integrity offering elite architectural features including a double-height Great Room with a sweeping circular staircase, gracious master suite, a 586 sq. ft. wraparound terrace, and dual private internal elevators.
Taking cues from the Metabolist movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s, One Madison Park employs a modular plug-in design concept articulated through “pods”. These cube-like forms deconstruct the building’s mass and give it a sense of lightness while also creating linear variety. Cantilevered from the main shaft, the pods also extend the tower’s 2,700 sq. ft. floor plate to 3,300 sq. ft. making it one of New York’s most distinctive and thinnest skyscrapers. One Madison Park’s design is simple, yet characteristic and striking, conveying an understated elegance not often found in contemporary architecture. Its slender shape and innovative engineering pushes the limits of today’s skyscrapers earning the tower its place in the iconography of the New York City skyline. The One Madison’s penthouse residence exemplifies the very best of Manhattan living that is truly in a class of its own.
