It’s one thing to live in the world’s most bustling metropolis, it’s another to live in the heart of it. Enter Penthouse A at One11 Residences at Thompson Central Park, New York. Located on Manhattan’s Billionaires’ Row, a mere few steps from Central Park and Fifth Avenue, it’s difficult to pinpoint the middle of Midtown, but this would come close.
Found on the 42nd floor of the iconic Thomspon Central Park hotel, it is considered the crown jewel of the collection of 99 luxury, hotel-serviced condominium residences.
The massive four-bedroom, four-bathroom residence features 3,042-sq-ft of Thomas Juul-Hansen-designed interiors – known for his work on The Beekman Residences, Sutton Tower and even Thompson Central Park itself. Juul-Hansen carries Thompson Central Park’s same contemporary elegance and laid-back luxury into the Penthouse.
At the center of the home lies the sun-drenched open-concept living room. Lined on three sides with 12-ft floor-to-ceiling windows, which frame the spectacular northern, eastern and southern views of Midtown and leave you feeling that you’re floating in the sky. The jewel-toned furnishings from IMG strike a balanced mix of contemporary with glam, without competing with those magnificent views.
Peer around the corner to find the formal dining space. Perfect for entertaining, the space is anchored by a dramatic ovoid dining table and luxe deep berry-colored chairs. The dining area leads to the separate state-of-the-art eat-in kitchen, which also features a quaint seating area for more casual dining. Sleek and clean in design, the super-white quartzite island immediately catches the eye, yet the suite of Miele appliances means it is high-spec and powerful too.
Each of the four bedrooms has been graciously designed to become serene oases from the bustling city below. The primary suite, with its floor-to-ceiling windows offering direct Central Park views, makes for the ideal comforting and luxurious retreat. Completing the elegant suite are two generous walk-in closets and the spa-like bathroom, with Greek Bianco Dolomiti stone vanity, Turkish Fiore di Bosco stone walls and flooring, and a deep soaking tub that overlooks Central Park.
But the signature of this penthouse truly is its outdoor spaces. A rare thing in New York, yet this property boasts a total of 2,642 square feet of private outdoor space across two stories. Surrounding the social areas and accessible from the kitchen and living room is the wraparound terrace and seating area, allowing for seamless indoor/outdoor living against the cinematic backdrop of Central Park.
Climb one more level to the 43rd and final floor to discover the pièce de resistance: an open-air roof-level refuge, showing an al fresco kitchen with multiple seating areas for entertaining. This remarkable space crowns the Thompson Central Park Hotel and offers a front-row view of Central Park from one of the most exclusive vantage points in Midtown.
Residents of the building will enjoy a coveted hospitality-influenced lifestyle that Thomspon Central Park is famed for. A curated selection of luxury amenities and hotel services are on offer including a full-service bar and restaurant, an exclusive member’s club-style lounge, a gym, private storage and more.
