Take in Manhattan From Above in This Sprawling Penthouse

Property of the Week: VU New York offers unrivaled panoramas and peaceful outdoor spaces to enjoy them from.

By Serina Tatham

Rising from the center of some of Manhattan’s most popular neighborhoods – NoMad, Flatiron, Gramercy and Kips Bay – VU New York is a new luxury residential development proudly sporting LEED certification.

Located at the crossroads of these districts, you’ll have access to some of the best of New York on your doorstep. With Michelin-starred eateries, high-end shopping destinations, green spaces like Madison Square Park and some unbeatable culture, you couldn’t ask for a better locale.

At 36 stories high, this New Age Modernism development is contemporary while being full of character. Think clean lines, bronze embellishments and chevron details, with a striking oyster-white façade.

An exciting addition to New York’s property market, Penthouse B is a duplex home spanning just under 3,000 sq ft, with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths.

Located across VU New York’s 33rd and 34th floors, the views from the penthouse are a real draw. Lofty 11-ft ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows frame the beautiful cityscape, with an interior palette of natural materials – marble, bleached oak and white lacquer – complementing the impressive vistas.

The upper level is entirely dedicated to living and entertaining. A grand foyer leads to the open-planned kitchen, dining and living space, while the kitchen, which is outfitted with Miele appliances, is designed with hosting in mind.

Filled with light from every direction, the contemporary layout also includes a central island and breakfast nook, making it the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee against the dramatic backdrop of the city.

On the lower level, the three en-suite bedrooms ooze sophistication. There is ample closet space as well as spacious bathrooms inspired by tranquil spas, with white marble, and custom sinks and showers designed exclusively for VU New York.
