Modern yet homely apartment interiors, state-of-the-art architectural design and superb communal spaces form the residential development trifecta; the conditions with the power to transform a scheme into the perfect urban retreat. Foster + Partners’ One Hundred East Fifty Third Street in New York seems to be hitting all the right notes with its sleek design, great location off Park Avenue and contemporary interiors – as well as its newly unveiled residents’ club.

Seen now for the first time, and located in the complex’s third and fourth floors are the residents’ amenities, which include a 60-foot swimming pool and state-of-the-art wellness facilities, such as a cardio room, weight room, pilates/ballet room, yoga room, sauna, steam room, spa treatment rooms, changing rooms and showers. William T Georgis, who is known for his work on The Grill and The Pool restaurants and the Gramercy Park Hotel, is behind the luxurious interiors and furnishings.

These may be private areas for residents only, but the full One Hundred East Fifty Third Street experience begins right from the get go, with a ground floor lobby area designed by Georgis and featuring bespoke artwork by Rachel Feinstein; meanwhile the building also plays host to a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Joël Robuchon.

One Hundred East Fifty Third Street consists of 63 storeys and 94 residences as a joint venture by developers RFR and Vanke. ‘Perfectly designed and expertly curated, the private residents’ club at One Hundred East Fifty Third Street offers a wellness respite from the bustle of city life,’ says Aby Rosen, co-founder and principal of RFR. ‘We are proud to officially introduce the luxurious lifestyle offerings at One Hundred East Fifty Third Street now that the building is nearing completion and residents will soon be able to enjoy a five-star experience right in their home.’

The building is set to complete by the end of this year, with residents beginning to move in during the summer.
