Madison House Named 6sqft Building of the Year
Earlier this spring, we told you that the development of Madison House, located at 15 East 30th Street, was set to top out by the end of the year as NoMad’s tallest skyscraper. The project actually made great progress, topped out in August, is now on the market, and is scheduled for completion in 2020.
In even more exciting news, NoMad’s newly tallest skyscraper was just named 6sqft’s 2019 Building of the Year. Madison House beat out eleven other important New York City buildings. Our already buzzing neighborhood just became an even more desirable location, because of the many residences Madison House adds to the area affirms NoMad’s reputation as New York’s most balanced live/work neighborhood.
Aesthetically, too, it is a great asset. Handel Architects noted that the inspiration behind the unique skyscraper came from “the elegance and magnificence of the classic Gothic cathedral and the ribboned exteriors of those buildings that draw the eye skyward.” The top of the building features panels that wrap around each other hiding mechanical equipment and creating graceful slopes and a unique profile in the NYC skyline.
There are many other aspects that set Madison House apart from the other skyscrapers in the city. At 805 feet tall, Madison House offers incredible views. A unique floorplan yields each of the 199 condo units, condo unit with at least one corner window, further enhanced by 11-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. And to insure the best views of the city, all units start at the 150-foot mark.
There will be a beautiful garden on the street-level created by landscape architect Mark Sullivan and 30,000 square feet are set aside for amenities, including a 75-foot lap pool; a hot tub; cold plunge pool; spa–gym; children’s playroom; lounge with a chef’s kitchen and dining room; library; golf simulator; and landscaped roof garden.
If you are looking to become a brand new owner of one of these desirable luxury condominiums, prices range from a $1.4 million one-bedroom to a $25 million+ four-bedroom penthouse with a private terrace. The notable design of Madison House is a welcomed addition to the fine buildings that line Nomad’s streets, representing many architectural styles from the Gilded Age to the starchitects of today.
