Sales launched at The Wales, an uber luxury condominium inside the former Hotel Wales, a historic New York hotel in Carnegie Hill. Pinto, France’s premier design firm founded by the late Alberto Pinto, designed the interiors of the residences and common spaces at the 10-story historic structure located at 1295 Madison Avenue (corner of 92nd & Madison). The neo-Renaissance facade circa 1899 was restored in the conversion from the former hotel. Pinto drew inspiration from the original facade with its detailed cornices, window surrounds, and brick and stone elements.
The Wales’ lobby features coffered ceilings, custom moldings, and floors of striking Bianco Estremoz and Grigio Nicola marble paired with Zimbabwe Black granite throughout. The area is decorated with antique wall mirrors, a custom brass chandelier, a decorative fireplace, and a custom-designed desk by Pinto.
The neo-renaissance building features 21 for-sale two- to four-bedroom homes including a striking one-of-a-kind five-bedroom Penthouse. This full-floor residence offers views of Central Park and The Reservoir and is complete with a wraparound terrace, a separate roof terrace with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace, and a private elevator.
Herringbone oak flooring with a natural wax finish, custom cornices, and base moldings are featured throughout the residences. Custom kitchens are outfitted with white lacquer cabinetry with an Art Deco-inspired geometric relief pattern and a stainless steel and white oak inlay design, complemented by Crystal Grey calcite stone countertops and backsplashes. Appliances include Sub Zero refrigerators, Wolf gas ranges, ovens, and speed ovens, XO wine refrigerators, and a Kohler Aquifer water filtration system. Select residences offer wet bars with a Sub-Zero under-counter refrigerator and Kallista fixtures.
Primary baths include Carrara marble vanity tops, walls, floors, and tub decks as well as geometric tile flooring with Bianco Carrara and Grigio Nicole marble features. Secondary baths also have custom vanities, marble details, and Kohler tubs. Powder rooms are appointed with marble wainscoted walls and floors, a custom lacquer vanity with a marble slab top, and chrome-trimmed mirrors with integrated LED lighting.
Pinto created various amenity spaces at The Wales including a sleek fitness center with richly toned oak wall paneling and equipment by Peloton, Hydrow, and NordicTrack along with a pet spa and grooming station. The Wales’ attentive staff provides 24-hour doorman and concierge services.
Two-bedroom homes are priced from $3.85 million and three and four-bedroom homes begin at $5.75 million, and $7.42 million, respectively.
