The NOMA is a 55 unit, 24 story neo-Bauhaus tower comprised mostly of two bedrooms but has some three bedroom penthouses. There is some smart, functional design here and something unique about this building. The setback that rises above the commercial portion of the building is angled so that residents have more unique exposures than traditional NYC buildings. The facade of this setback is also offset at the shared apartment walls, so residents’ exposures are not blocked by the apartment wall next to it. Very smart and unique design by developer Alchemy Properties and architects FXFOWLE. Located in a great part of NOMAD at 50 West 30th Street it is near Chelsea, Union Square and the Flatiron District. Gramercy Park and Madison Square Park are just some of the parks within walking distance. NOMAD continues to become a desirable neighborhood with the highly anticipated arrival of the Virgin Hotel among other hotels, restaurants, and destinations in this thriving location.
The master baths are also special, featuring oversized wet rooms draped in marble complete with marble oval inlays outlined in black that make a statement. One unit line has windowed bathrooms. The black casement-like windows accented by the black outline in the inlaid marble floors complimented by the gunmetal fixtures is very impressive. There is a great nouveau classic aesthetic here. And with a great ‘niche factor’, Robern medicine cabinets, radiant heated floors, and a rain shower head NOMA’s master baths exhibit great style and class.
LOTS OF EXTRAS
Alchemy and FXFOWLE have once again teamed up to make a great addition to our city skyline. The exterior façade of this building is striking with bold contemporary architecture. I give many accolades to the angled setback with split façade providing different and additional exposures compared with a typical NYC building. Nomad is becoming an “it” area in our city with all of the restaurants, cultural attractions, and center proximity of the city. The price points here are reasonable, and there is exceptional value at The NOMA.
