On the heels of going into contract on the most expensive penthouse at Lantern House (with an asking of $18,975,000 million), a collection of penthouses at Thomas Heatherwick’s first residential project in North America have now been listed. Priced from $7,975,000 up to $18,975,000, each of the penthouses features a large private outdoor terrace, providing extraordinary views across New York City. Closings at Lantern House commence this spring with occupancy anticipated later this year.
Since the launch of sales at Lantern House, the response has been outstanding. Lantern House stands out in the market because this collection of homes was designed from the inside-out, which has resonated strongly with buyers. From the fantastic views to the luxurious amenities overlooking the High Line, Lantern House is an extraordinary opportunity for purchasers, whether they are in the market for a one-bedroom home or a sprawling terraced penthouse. – Dan August Cordeiro, Senior Managing Director at Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group
Designed by Heatherwick Studio with interiors by March and White Design, luxury West Chelsea building is crafted with materials to stand the test of time. Uniquely created to take advantage of its location, Lantern House includes a 22-story west building and a 10-story east building, joined by a dramatic glass lobby pavilion draped under the High Line.
For our first residential project in North America, we wanted to design something that is interesting to look at and could be part of the view. People love to live in memorable places. For Lantern House, it was important that our design feel rooted in and of New York as much as possible. When Lantern House residents return home, we want them to feel like they are returning to a place like no other. – Thomas Heatherwick, Founder of Heatherwick Studio
The expansive penthouses feature three-dimensional corner bay windows, offering enhanced light and beautiful views. The thoughtfully designed interiors, with ceiling heights up to 12’, boast vented gas fireplaces with an Emperador marble surround, five-inch-wide oak chevron plank flooring, and hybrid (also referred to as “double”) bay windows.
Designed by March and White Design, the kitchens include custom bronze finished trim and hardware, Gaggenau appliances, a seventy-bottle full-height wine cooler, double wall ovens, a custom suspended light fixture of bronze-finished metal and specialty glass, convex fluted oak cabinetry, and Calacatta Venato marble slab countertops and backsplash. The west building penthouses have a second dishwasher, double wall ovens, dual warming drawers, and a built-in coffee maker.
All of the penthouses at Lantern House include large penthouse terraces, either recessed and situated off the Great Room, or on private second floor rooftops. These terraces are fitted with custom stainless-steel outdoor kitchens, Wolf built-in gas grills, Subzero refrigerators and custom glass railings. The terraces are finished with concrete pavers over a membrane roofing system and the interior to terrace doors are made with thermally broken aluminum and are integrated into the window system.
