Madison Square Park Tower, located at 45 East 22nd Street, is the tallest residential address in Manhattan’s historic Flatiron District. Developed by Bruce Eichner’s Continuum Company, the building offers one-to-five bedroom residences (with four studios designated as staff quarters). With simplex, duplex, full-floor, and penthouses available, there is something for everyone who can appreciate true luxury living. The units are fantastic with sweeping views, some very luxurious design details, great layouts, plenty of space, and amenities to match. London-based interior designer Martin Brudnizki crafted the interiors. Brudnizki is known for creating hotels, bars, restaurants, and other commercial spaces. Madison Square Park Tower represents his foray into the world of residential design.
At Madison Square Park Tower, residents can choose between an open or a closed kitchen. Custom Molteni cabinetry is paired with integrated appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero. Waterworks fixtures and Nanz hardware beautifully finish each space.
Residences feature corner exposures and floor-to-ceiling glass walls. You can see the high level of commitment that Continuum Company has put into this project, down to the marble countertops in the laundry rooms. All of the doors in these residences are beautiful. The entrance door is fluted, and the laundry room doors include horizontal fluted cut outs—a unique touch that adds to the incredible design.
Madison Square Park Tower is one of only two buildings that have the air rights to build taller than other buildings in the area, allowing for 360-degree protected views from all of the full-floor residences. The acclaimed architectural firm Kohn Pederson Fox created an angular design that optimizes these views. With a maximum of two apartments per floor, each apartment boasts breathtaking vistas overlooking nearby Madison Square Park and other city icons, including the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings.
At 777 feet tall, Madison Square Park Tower is the tallest building between Midtown and Lower Manhattan. Some of the residences are higher than the gold spire atop the neighboring Met Life building. This beautiful experience denotes a higher air of luxury living by providing a unique vantage point. This is a trait that few (if any) other luxury developments can boast.
ONLY THE FINEST
All of the bathrooms, including the powder rooms, are fitted with custom vanities. In the 55th-floor model residence, a partial wall separates the master bathroom into distinct areas, with his-and-hers vanities on one side, and a freestanding tub with cinematic skyline views on the other. A third sink is located in the water closet, which is the only water closet with its own sink that I have seen in all of Manhattan. The floors are tiled in imported Mountain White Danby Stone. This is luxury at its finest.
There are five floors of amenities at Madison Square Park Tower, which include a fitness center, a half-court indoor basketball court, private yoga studio, PGA Tour classic golf simulator, children’s playroom, duplex library and club room with billiards, games, and an outdoor terrace for entertaining. Additionally, residents will have access to an automated parking garage and the private club FIFTY-FOUR, located on the 54th floor of the building, with sweeping views of the city and a demonstration kitchen for catered events.
Bruce Eichner and the Continuum Company have added something special to the Flatiron District with Madison Square Park Tower. The high level of finishes, rich choice of materials, striking city views, and the high standard of design all combine to make this project an extraordinary addition to the Flatiron District.
