Views. Views. Views. 50 West Street is a standout among Manhattan Luxury Properties in Downtown. Rising 760 feet tall, high above its neighbors, the building’s position between Rector Street and West Thames Street guarantees breathtaking views of Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, New York Harbor, and the East and Hudson Rivers in New York.

This curved 64-story sleek and smooth tower, designed by Architect Helmut Jahn, will be so smooth that it will be curved on its south side. It seems that the building takes design cues from its glass and steel neighbors to the north, the new World Trade Center towers, making it a thoroughly modern design, albeit on a smaller scale, that works well for residential.

The same interior designer that did One57, Thomas Juul-Hanson, designed interiors at 50 West, so expect the very best in styling, finishes and appliances. Some of the living rooms will have double-height and wrap around views! The building’s “L Series,” reserved for penthouses and full and half-floor residences will have a number of upgrades.

This new Manhattan Luxury condo will boast a ton of amenities, including an observation deck on the top floor! Other amenities include the Water Club, which boasts a 60-foot swimming pool, huge hot tub and saunas, as well as gym, spa, theater with stadium seating, library, lounge, children’s playroom. In addition, the third floor of the building will feature office space, with 15 commercial condominiums available to purchase, ranging from 280 to 830 sq. ft. The space can be used as a home office or traditional workspace, away from the home but in the same building.

The project’s 191 condos will range in size from 1 to 5 bedrooms. Residences at 50 West start at $1.6 million and rise to $23 million.  Sales began in July 2014 and its rumored that sales have been brisk.

The Marketing Directors Inc. is the exclusive agents for the building. Occupancy for 50 West is expected for 2016.
