New York’s prestigious development, Fifteen Hudson Yards, has just revealed the latest addition to its enviable offering of residents’ amenities – the highest outdoor residential space in the city. 900 meters up, on the new development’s Skytop level, a sprawling space has been devoted to a series of exclusive resident-use leisure facilities.
The open-air terrace will afford panoramic views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline, with space to relax beneath 14-ft-tall multi-stemmed white oak trees, and two indoor event spaces to host your own events in – one a lounge and the other a private 18-seat dining room with catering kitchen and bar.
This new rooftop venue complements the larger Hudson Yards neighborhood’s public square and gardens, restaurants and shops, which altogether span 40,000 sq ft. Head to the 50th and 51st floors for wellness facilities including an aquatics center with 75-ft pool, whirlpool and private spa, beauty bar and fitness center by The Wright Fit, along with leisure facilities ranging from a screening room and golf club lounge to wine storage and a tasting room. The ambitious development was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group.
Commenting on the latest addition to the residents’ amenities, the senior vice president of related sales, Sherry Tobak, says: “Our buyers have been extremely enthusiastic about Skytop. Located at the pinnacle of the building, the Skytop at Fifteen Hudson Yards is an architectural marvel that lends a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience unlike anything offered before in New York City, and is a perfect complement to the building’s expansive amenity offerings, and the larger neighborhood opening this spring.”
The first phase of Hudson Yards, which is set to open spring 2019, will include the public square and gardens with centerpiece installation by Heatherwick Studio, along with shops and restaurants including New York City’s first Neiman Marcus, a signature restaurant collection by chef Thomas Keller. You’ll also be able to see its new luxury residences, a 750-seat school, and an Equinox Hotel. Remaining residences are priced from $3.9m to $32m.
