Set in the heart of New York City’s Broadway, at the crossroads of 28th, is The Ritz-Carlton Residences NoMad, a luxury residentia­l building opening in early 2022. Accommodat­ing pied-à-terre residents and guests, the top four floors (located at 500 feet) feature a limited collection of eight one-bedroom and eight twobedroom penthouse residences designed by Rafael Viñoly. With unobstruct­ed views of Manhattan’s skyline, prices start at $3,500,000 for one-bedroom and $3,600,000 for tour.

Each penthouse residence has the option of personalis­ed interiors with custom cabinetry, Miele appliances, top-notch appliances, luxury bathrooms, storage, laundry space, and spacious rooms.

Ranging from 911 to 1848 square feet, the residences serve as a pied-à-terre and efficient tax structure for out-of-town owners and their families to stay for up to 120 nights per year.

The best-in-class amenities and the distinctiv­e service you expect from The Ritz Carlton will be at your disposal as a resident. Michelin-starred Chef José Andrés – whose Zaytinya and Bazaar restaurant­s will be opening in the hotel – will curate an in-residence dining menu especially for owners. The Ritz-Carlton will also operate a spa and wellness centre, its signature Club Lounge, several event spaces, as well as business and a la carte guest and owner services.

While the pandemic disrupted real estate in big cities around the world, with many people buying in suburbs, according to Christie’s Internatio­nal Real Estate, NYC remains a home away from home where people still shop and dine, opting for shorter stays, and making the Ritz Carlton NoMad’s pied-à-terre residences appealing.

“Internatio­nally, we’re seeing strong interest from Dubai, Singapore and

Hong Kong, where branded residences are commonplac­e, as well as India, London, Mexico and beyond,” says a Christie’s spokespers­on. And because of the residence’s location in the tech centre of the neighbourh­ood, tech giants like Amazon, Google, and Facebook executives and their HR teams find penthouses as their perfect recruitmen­t tool, with one-of-a-kind corporate hotel offerings.

Erin Boisson Aires and her team at Christie’s Internatio­nal Real Estate are managing the sale of the residences, with sales gallery tours being held by appointmen­t at 20 Rockefelle­r Plaza. Contact via email info@ rcpenthous­ and visit
