Celebrities in New York are a dime a dozen. From actors and musicians to politicians and more, these celebs are all too often photographed entering and leaving their luxurious condominiums. To bolster privacy and prevent tabloid photographers from getting those invasive snaps, a crop of high-end developments in Manhattan are implementing paparazzi-proof private subterranean entries and porte-cocheres. At these buildings, celebs have a concealed entry to their posh New York abodes. Paps, be gone!
ONE UNITED NATIONS PARK
Located in the Midtown East corridor, just south of the storied United Nations headquarters, One United Nations Park was designed with the highest level of privacy in mind. A private porte-cochere and indoor motor court welcome residents home, and dedicated elevators whisk them up to sun-drenched apartments clad in the finest finishes, such as Calacatta Lincoln Marble countertops and custom oak flooring. Among the limited collection of expansive duplex residences in the building, a number even has direct elevator access, ensuring the utmost privacy for residents. Finally, a layered black glass exterior (that remains completely translucent from inside One United Nations Park) reaffirms that residents won’t be disturbed once inside their home.
Tucked away in Manhattan’s West Chelsea neighborhood, Jardim is the first U.S. residential development by Isay Weinfeld, the world-renowned Brazilian architect and interior designer known for his hotels and high-end homes, including the ultra-chic Fasano Hotels around the world. The Portuguese word for garden – Jardim – is a fitting name for this plant-filled property, which boasts an ultra-private urban park that envelops the two 11-story towers that comprise the development. In addition to the 36 residences and gardens, amenities include a skylit swimming pool, fitness center, spa facilities and a brick-vaulted private tunnel that connects West 27th and 28th Streets, leading to views of the garden’s dense greenery through a latticed wall in the lobby – serving as the ultimate paparazzi-proof porte-cochere. Jardim is developed by Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group.
