On the roof of 50 West—a dizzying 780 feet above downtown Manhattan—there is nothing between you and the sky, the stars, or the panoramas of the harbor, skyline, and Atlantic horizon. Exclusively for residents and their guests, the 64th-floor Observatory will be completed later this summer, offering outdoor spaces for lounging, dining, and, above all, stargazing. Plus, an astronomer will be on hand to share insights on the celestial wonders.
Other amenities abound at the Helmut Jahn–designed residential tower as well: fitness and water clubs, recreation spaces for youth, the Entertainment Floor, and more. The one- to three-bedroom residences, duplexes, and penthouses feature double-height living rooms and expansive, curved floor-to-ceiling windows flooded with light. (Residences available from $2.47 million to $25 million through Time Equities)
