A concrete community builds the foundation of New York, encompassing a lifestyle fit for lovers of the extraordinary. Modern amenities cultivate a luxurious balance between the historic city and an uprising of the bold and new. These residences emerge as stars among the everyday apartments and homes scattered among the bland and ordinary due to their special amenities.
The Towers of the Waldorf-Astoria— 303 Park Avenue
Boasting 375 residential units, Waldorf-Astoria will offer New York yet another structure to marvel. The direction of the developer, Anbang Insurance Group, combined with the creativity of Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill will set the stage for a beautiful renovation set to be completed in 2021. Exclusive access to luxurious event spaces and residences from studios to four-bedrooms allow the Waldorf-Astoria to continue to stand as a historic landmark. The hotel’s intelligent interior design of Pierre Yves Rochon preserves the building’s unique and tasteful historic qualities in a number of spaces deemed worthy by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
