BECKFORD HOUSE & TOWER

The Upper East Side will see two new residential buildings completed this year that are sure to become instant icons for the neighborhood. Revered architect William Sofield is constructing the intimate, 21-story Beckford House, comprised of just 32 residences, and the adjacent 31-story Beckford Tower featuring 72 residences. Both buildings complement the area’s prewar architecture with their inset terraces, Juliet balconies and classic façades of limestone, brownstone and custom-gray brick. Wellness amenities inside Beckford Tower will include a 65-foot swimming pool, basketball half-court, gym and yoga studio. beckfordresidences.com

CENTRAL PARK TOWER

West 57th Street is Billionaire’s Row, and when the 131-story Central Park Tower topped out at 1,550 feet on this strip last year it became the tallest residential building in the world. Renowned interior architect Lauren Rottet is overseeing the design of its 179 two- to eight-bedroom residences, which begin on the 32nd floor and range between 1,435 to over 17,500 square feet. Sales launched in the fall of 2018 and move-in dates are slated to begin before year’s end. The Tower is also home to New York’s first Nordstrom, which occupies the first five floors. centralparktower.com

45 PARK PLACE 

Tribeca now has a 667-foot-tall glass tower of European sophistication in 45 Park Place, which is slated for occupancy by the end of this year. The iconic Italian designer Piero Lissoni is overseeing the interiors for all 50 of the condos, his first such development project in New York. Lissoni’s linear minimalism is accompanied by soaring windows throughout the spaces, which range from one to four bedrooms. Each residence features Boffi kitchens (Lissoni is the brand’s creative director) and Gaggenau appliances. 45parkplaceny.com

32 EAST 1ST STREET

A monumental limestone grid exterior gives way to large square windows and striking use of negative space. The architecture of 32 East 1st Street, by Combined Architecture and Interiors, nods to Italian Rationalist design from the early 20th century. Inside, there’s a spa with hot tubs, a sauna, steam room, and plunge pool. The 30 one- to three-bedroom residences, now available for occupancy, feature Molteni walk-in closets and kitchen cabinetry by GD Cucine. But the crowning achievement is the striking 2,766-square-foot Penthouse B by celebrated French designer Mathieu Lehanneur, which boasts an extra 1,170 square of feet of outdoor space overlooking the East Village. 32e1st.nyc
