Flatiron District, New York
TURNING ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY INTO RESIDENTIAL LUXURY
The International Toy Center building contained 350,000+ square feet of office space situated on Madison Square Park in the Flatiron District. Having been vacant for several years, we saw a prime opportunity to transform a piece of classic New York architecture into stunning residences that would enjoy the best of the city’s urban energy.
We converted the building into 122 luxury condominiums, creating a rare but sought-after combination in New York living: adjacency to one of Manhattan’s few green spaces at the heart of a vibrant neighborhood with phenomenal connectivity to the rest of the city.
Inspiration from the incomparable location is evident in the garden courtyard, a lush, secluded landscape with postcard views from the windows above. True luxury in the middle of the city. Residential and amenity space interiors balance comfort with refinement through the use of exceptional materials and the highest quality craftsmanship.
Outside 10 Madison Square West, a burgeoning residential community adds new vitality to the historic neighborhood, which includes some of the city’s most popular restaurants and retail.
PARKSIDE LIVING WITH URBAN VIBRANCY
Residents can revel in—or retreat—from the hustle and bustle of city life at 10 Madison Square West.
They can step under the elegant floating canopy punctuated by skylights, inspired by the building’s historic industrial heritage and contemporary design. As they enter a calm urban oasis, picture windows and custom lighting flood the street with a warm and welcoming glow.
Centuries-old trees stand in stately regard over the spectacularly restored southern park fountain, while landscaped gardens and spacious tended lawns stretch out before residents—all right at their doorstep.
The 10,000 square foot residents’ club offers a heated 60-foot lap pool and artfully designed hot tub, with handcrafted Heath ceramic tiles and marble mosaics as the centerpiece of the private experience.
At the same time, everything Manhattan has to offer is at their fingertips. Morning, afternoon, or evening, the Flatiron streets offer endless opportunities to stroll, browse, explore, and enjoy. Plus, thanks to the central location and great transit options, a jaunt uptown or downtown only takes minutes.
