This two-story penthouse is located on Park Avenue between 73rd and 74th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. This private residence with outside terraces on both floors underwent a gut renovation and for the first time in the building’s history, Kel-Mar was allowed to make structural changes to accommodate the installation of floor to ceiling glass windows and doors on both the 21st and 22nd floors.
All bathrooms received custom tile and stone, custom millwork with chrome inserts, heated floors, Hansgrohe fixtures, showers with Infiniti drains and Duravit toilets. The Master Bath has Toto toilets, Dornbracht fixtures and a free standing tub and shower with Infiniti drains. The kitchen is Neff Cabinetry and Miele appliances. The custom millwork throughout the space is complimented by engineered wood floors with metal inserts, a Mondrian wall and a translucent stone bar lit from within by an LED lighting package.
Completely new mechanical systems were installed including new gas service, a plumbing trough, water heater and a booster pump for increased water pressure. A new Daikin HVAC system with 2 condensers mounted on the roof of the 22nd floor powering six indoor units with humidifiers was also part of the upgrade. Exterior spaces received a Kemper Roofing System and roof stone tiles in grout to give access to an outdoor kitchen with a Wolf BBQ, refrigerator, sink and a copper fire pit.
New structure was also added for the installation of a two-stop, pneumatic vacuum elevator – only the second of its kind in New York
