A Taste for Fine Living

Monday, December 8, 2014

“One West End is the ultimate foodie destination from top to bottom. It is a game changer for the neighborhood and a very exciting one at that!” said Samantha Sax, Executive Vice President, Elad Group

New York City, the quintessential foodie destination, is anticipating the arrival of a new condominium set to cater to the world’s foremost tastemakers. Elad Group and Silverstein Properties have teamed together to develop One West End, a residential enclave that sits at the gateway of Riverside Center. The first condominium property of the five-building Christian de Portzamparc master plan, One West End, is located in one of Manhattan’s most sought after zip codes. Standing 42 stories tall with 246 residences, this will be the tallest building at Riverside Center.

One West End will introduce an impeccably designed condo with a culinary experience for all of our residents and New Yorkers to enjoy,” said Larry Silverstein, Chairman of Silverstein Properties.

An award-winning team of designers and architects have been commissioned to fulfill the building’s design intent — a philosophy that affords a resort lifestyle with hotel like design and amenities. Renowned architecture firm Pelli Clarke Pelli skillfully crafted One West End’s commanding exterior, which boasts a distinctive limestone base topped by a glass façade with metal detailing that showcases a cantilevered atrium. Restaurant and hotel visionary Jeffrey Beers conceived the apartment interiors, the amenity spaces and the condominium’s culinary retail destination. Beers, an international icon in the luxury hospitality industry has designed efficient, airy apartments that are complemented by breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and the surrounding rivers. These well-crafted residences have been equipped with innovative open and closed kitchens that are the epicenter of the home. Offered in two distinctive finish packages, the custom-designed kitchens feature recessed storage niches enriched by fully integrated appliances that are adorned by imported marble slab counter tops and backsplashes.

“Designing a hotel is about welcoming a guest from your first step into the lobby to your room. We have taken the concept of hospitality and translated it into a home welcoming the resident from Curbside to pillow,” said Jeffrey Beers, Principal and Founder, Jeffrey Beers International.

Jeffrey Beers brings an intimate knowledge of entertaining and hospitality to the design of One West End’s amenities. The capacious amenity levels offer seamlessly integrated indoor and outdoor spaces for entertainment, fitness and relaxation. This impressive suite of resort inspired highlights includes a stunning 75 foot swimming pool encased within the double height cantilevered atrium, a state of the art fitness center and a host of grand-scaled, connecting entertainment spaces that double as venues for private events or areas for leisurely relaxation. The entertainment spaces include a chef’s kitchen with adjacent dining room, a living room with a gas-burning fireplace, a media room equipped with large screen TVs, a neighboring billiards room, a playroom and a high-tech gaming room. These distinctive spaces are topped by a 12,000 square foot landscaped outdoor terrace complete with private cabanas, numerous lounge chairs, BBQ grills and an area for private outdoor dining.

Not only does One West End offer world class amenities and outstanding apartments outfitted with kitchens suitable for an iron chef, another aspect of its allure is undoubtedly the plan for a 25,000 square foot retail culinary marketplace. This convenient retail amenity validates the luxury, resort philosophy that is so apparent in the condominium’s design sensibilities. And with Jeffrey Beers leading the charge it promises to be filled with elements that will appeal to discerning foodies worldwide. Though Elad and Silverstein aren’t confirming all the details of this culinary destination just yet, their excitement about its arrival is palpable. We imagine that you will be rushing to this food emporium to get a bite out of this irresistible culinary experience whether you’re a resident of One West End or an eager foodie. And with easy accessibility to and from some of Manhattan’s largest business districts and landmark institutions you will be able to partake in delightful fare and be on your way in less than a New York minute!

A marketplace at your doorstep, a level of service likened to that of a five star hotel and airy apartments with both river and city views – One West End comes to market this winter offering a range of one- to four-bedroom residences with pricing starting at $1.3 million to over $20 million. This residential community is the new destination for sophisticated New Yorkers and trendsetters worldwide looking for great value blended into a delightful package. Bon appetite!
