High and Mighty

Samantha Brooks

The Frank Gehry–designed New York by Gehry tower, which was completed in the spring of 2011, rises 76 stories over Lower Manhattan and stands 870 feet tall, making it the tallest residential building in North America. Also lending to the structure’s unmistakability is its asymmetrical steel facade, which appears to ripple like fabric. Ninety-six percent of the 899 residences in this landmark design have been rented, but one of the three recently completed penthouse units—Penthouse North—is still available.

This 3,771-square-foot unit, which is being offered for $35,000 per month, includes 10-foot-high ceilings, white oak floors, and east and west views. Fittings and appliances from Dornbracht, Duravit, Liebherr, and Miele outfit the space, as do motorized solar shades, built-in speakers, and radiant-heat flooring. Giant bay windows allow residents to “step into space,” says the architect.

Amenities available to all residents include concierge and valet services, a screening room with Gehry-designed amphitheater seating, a library, a catering kitchen, a private dining room, a fitness center and spa, a game room with golf simulators, and a 50-foot swimming pool with retractable glass doors and a wraparound sundeck.
