Located in the heart of Manhattan and within walking distance of everything that makes New York the capital of the world, you will find The Park Imperial, 230 West 56th Street, PH1A. This sky loft penthouse is unlike any other in Manhattan while offering the top tier of 21st-century luxury with a sleek and sharp two-floor design. Venetian plaster walls and ebony-stained mahogany floors create a modern, streamlined home. The unit is the only residence on the top two floors (71 and 72) and offers large-scale privacy. With a massive common space and soaring 15–foot ceilings, three terraces, a floating staircase, and living, dining, and kitchen areas adorned with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto midtown and Central Park - this home provides the ultimate entertaining space. A gas-powered fireplace adds a centralized focal point to the living room and library. The modern kitchen has ample cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and a massive island perfect for eating and entertaining. Off the main entrance, there is a guest/powder bathroom with an extraordinary teak wood tub and Venetian plaster. The unit has a newly installed (2020) Crestron home system including biometric front door access and full control of the audio/video systems, window dressings, and temperature controls. Off the kitchen, there is a butler’s pantry with an additional sink, 2 dishwashers, oven, microwave, and pantry space. The laundry room, located in this area, has plenty of space for more storage.
The floating staircase offers breathtaking views of Manhattan’s skyline as you alight to the second level. At the top of the landing, there is a private library with a flat-screen TV and a secondary gas fireplace. Along with a wet bar, there are two wonderfully sized bedrooms on this level. Each bedroom has ample hallway closet space and ensuite bathrooms. The glass stall showers have fog window technology providing an option for privacy or a view of the NYC landscape.
The primary king-sized bedroom sits as a corner room offering double exposure and panoramic Manhattan views. Around the corner of the back wall is the primary ensuite with oversized closets, dual sinks, a steam shower, and a jacuzzi-style soaker tub. The primary bedroom has a retractable wall allowing for additional space by eliminating the secondary bedroom. This space can be a home office, home gym, or media room.
Another door off the library leads to an enormous (approximately 30’x45’) grand patio with a full Viking barbecue grill, storage space, and a grassy area for a full patio set with planters, couches, and benches on the 72nd floor with one of the most unique panoramic views of Midtown Manhattan North through Central Park. The outdoor space is big enough to host a massive party while taking in the city as it surrounds you.
One of the more attractive features of this “unique experience in the sky” is the private staircase that leads to the grand patio which can be accessed as soon as you exit the elevators. Guests can go upstairs without ever having to enter your home. At night, it is as quiet as a country retreat.
The Park Imperial is just a few blocks south of Central Park, Columbus Circle, the Deutsche Bank Tower, and the number one and number two restaurants in New York: Per Se and Jean-Georges. You are within walking distance to Lincoln Center, and a quick cut through the park brings you to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. You have access to 10 subway lines that connect you to the entire city. A few blocks south puts you in the heart of the Theater District and Times Square. The building offers white-gloved concierge service and is pet friendly. This home is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to enjoy in the finest!
