From its curved glass curtain wall and pristine interior details to its carefully curated amenities, 252 was conceived by design architect Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and interior architect Daniel Romualdez to create an exceptional living experience. 252’s elegant entrances provide an exclusive arrival experience. On 57th Street, a glass bridge over moving water leads to a spacious marble clad lobby with a living green wall and a walnut paneled sitting room. On 56th Street there is a private, gated porte cochere with an innovative automated parking garage and attended lobby.
The 2-5 bedroom residences are distinguished by thoughtfully conceived layouts, sumptuous materials, and fine craftsmanship. Floorplans are informed by the distinctive curves of the sculptural glass curtain wall, bringing unique definition and flow to living spaces while framing panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, Central Park and the East River. The interior of the residences feature kitchens designed by Daniel Romualdez and Eggersmann with deluxe finishes which include white HanStone glass quartz countertops and backsplash, horizontal-grain walnut cabinetry and Miele applicances. Generous master bedrooms have walk-in closets and spacious windowed en-suite master baths that have polished white Nanoglass walls, and walnut vanities with white glass tops. Other features include ¾ inch white oak floors, state of the art four pipe ceiling hung fan coil HVAC, vented Asko washer and dryers, and Dornbracht fixtures.
On the 34th floor, walls of glass and 18 foot ceilings bring natural light and extraordinary views to a variety of amenities for entertaining, dining and relaxing. Additional amenities include a gymnasium with equipment by Technogym, professionally equipped Pilates, yoga and spin studios, two furnished guest suites, a screening room, billiard room, children’s playroom and music/DJ room. The Spa offers a 75 foot swimming pool and a hydrotherapy circuit with steam, sauna, ice and relaxation rooms.
