From 40 Bleecker with interiors by famed Ryan Korban or 30 Park Place Four Seasons Private Residences in Tribeca, to Extell’s The Kent in the Upper East Side or Waterline Square on the Upper West Side, below are the best buildings to consider this Fall.
NoHo’s 40 Bleecker is the first ever residential building from designer-to-the-stars Ryan Korban, who has imbued the interiors with his trademark over-the-top touches and mixing of styles. Welcoming residents and guests into the building, Korban custom-designed the lobby space for a tranquil escape from the city. Punctuated by two marble couches and separated by a slab coffee table of rough-hewn French limestone and touches like suede walls, black marble and terrazzo book-matched floors perfectly complement the black marble fireplace lined in bronze that is the centerpiece of the room.
30 Park Place Four Seasons Private Residences
Located within the 926-foot tower at 30 Park Place Four Seasons Private Residences New York Downtown, which stands as the tallest condominium to grace the Downtown skyline, is a communal fireplace set within the lobby. Designed inside and out by Robert A.M. Stern, the building is beautifully punctuated with labyrinth-patterned absolute black and white thasos marble flooring where residents and their guests can gather around the flames to warm up just as they come in after a cold day spent outside.
Waterline Square, the five-acre, three-tower development designed by Richard Meier, Rafael Viñoly, and KPF on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, provides an unparalleled set of the best-in-class amenities.

Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the Hudson River and the surrounding development, including its central 2.6-acre park. Designed by Champalimaud Design (One Waterline Square), Yabu Pushelberg (Two Waterline Square), and Groves & Co. (Three Waterline Square), the luxurious spaces are sure to impress!
