New York by Gehry

At 870 feet tall, New York by Gehry is the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere and a singular addition to the iconic Manhattan skyline. For his first residential commission in New York City, master architect Frank Gehry has reinterpreted the design language of the classic Manhattan high-rise with undulating waves of stainless steel that reflect the changing light, transforming the appearance of the building throughout the day. Gehry’s distinctive aesthetic is carried across the interior residential and amenity spaces with custom furnishings and installations.

Gehry’s innovative incorporation of bay windows creates the tower’s dynamic silhouette as well as an exceptional variety of panoramic views from within the residences. By shifting the bay windows from floor to floor and tailoring their configuration for each residence, Gehry has given residents the opportunity to, as he puts it, “step into space.”

New York by Gehry’s 22,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, together with comprehensive concierge and lifestyle services, offer residents an experience found only in world-class hotels and resorts.

Views from every direction and floor, at all times of the day and throughout the year, are limitless. Intimate perspectives of the Woolworth Building to the west are set against a breathtaking panorama that encompasses of the Hudson River. All five East River bridges and iconic midtown skyscrapers, including the Empire State and Chrysler buildings, unfold along the eastern and northern exposures. Views toward the northern horizon include Central Park and the George Washington Bridge. To the south and east, Manhattan is seen against the backdrop of the New York Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean.

Frank Gehry is perhaps the most celebrated practicing architect in the world today. He has been the recipient of dozens of awards recognizing excellence in architecture, including, in 1989, the most prestigious one in his field, the Pritzker Architecture Prize, which honors “significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.” Over the past five decades, under Gehry’s creative direction, Gehry Partners, LLP has designed public and private buildings in North America, Europe, and Asia. Hallmarks of Gehry’s work include a particular focus on creating spaces that are comfortable to the people who use them, and that exist well within the larger context and culture of their location. The firm’s approach to design is one in which the client becomes fully engaged in the process, making each project a true collaboration.
