apple seeds redesigned a spacious on-site children’s playroom for the luxury rental located in the  heart of the Financial District. The playroom will contain many of the same children’s museum-quality permanent exhibits found at the apple seeds flagship location (10 West 25th Street), including their “construction city” with Lego tables, “the neighborhood” with taxi and deli, “the park” with shape-sorter flower garden and infant-geared crawling area, plus much more focusing on constructive and imaginative play and large and fine motor skill development.

Having already established a relationship with apple seeds and seeing the great work they do and how they meticulously design their spaces sealed the deal for us,” she adds.

New York by Gehry & Frank Gehry host NYC’s top brokers

Following the exceptionally successful springtime release of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom rentals on the lower floors of Eight Spruce Street, the focus moves skyward, to floors  40 through 76 with larger, family-friendly two-and-three bedroom residences, featuring unique layouts, expansive views and elegant finishes.

Frank Gehry and Bruce Ratner toast Gehry’s “love letter to New York City,” to applause from 150 specialty brokers, including Nancy Packes (far right) , and Scott Hustis and Mark Jovanovic of Corcoran.

During a sunset event held this Tuesday, July 26th, over 150 specialty brokers got their first look at New York by Gehry‘s upper floor apartments-floors 40 through 76- presented by developer Bruce Ratner and architect Frank Gehry. The party showcased a terraced three-bedroom model unit on the 52nd floor with expansive views of the city.  Guests enjoyed skyline panoramas featuring the Empire State Building to the North, the Freedom Tower and Hudson River to the West, and the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges to the East.  Guests also toured the building’s newly opened, 22,000sf of amenity spaces and new model apartments on the 45th floor.

This broker preview event was catered by renowned chef David Bouley, featuring selections from his newest venture, Lower Manhattan’s acclaimed eatery, Brushstroke, a much-anticipated culinary collaboration with Japan’s Tsuji Institute.

Gehry’s Design Vision, Inside and Out

In a rare arrangement, Frank Gehry not only designed the building’s exhilarating façade but all of the interiors and amenity spaces, curating all finishes and fixtures, and styling the building’s 20 model apartments. The artist’s hand is in evidence throughout Eight Spruce Street–from the striking sculptural concierge desk in the lobby to the screening room’s free-form amphitheater-style seating in the amenity space, constructed in Gehry’s signature honey-colored vertical grain Douglas Fir.

“I designed a building I would want to live in as a New Yorker.” Said Frank Gehry, “You could say this is my love letter to New York City. I’m thrilled we were able to do it in Lower Manhattan, which allowed me to be part of something so meaningful—to stand with this building’s neighbors, the residents and businesses of this neighborhood. We worked together over the past seven years to create a new icon for Lower Manhattan.”

Bruce C. Ratner, Chairman and CEO of Forest City Ratner Companies said, “There is a reason Frank Gehry is considered the world’s best architect, and we know from the enthusiastic response we’ve received that people from around the world want to experience Frank’s singular vision of a beautiful, functional, New York City lifestyle. Our residents are excited and proud to live here, and it’s been extremely rewarding to collaborate with Frank to bring his ideas to life.”

New York by Gehry Update: Rental Gallery and Model Units Now Open!

With the opening of its 37th Floor Rental Gallery, prospective residents of New York by Gehry are invited to tour 18 model units showcasing Gehry-designed interiors that take rental apartment living to elegant new heights. Rising to 870 feet, Frank Gehry’s first skyscraper, the 76-story New York by Gehry, with its stainless steel cladding shaped to look like draped fabric, is now the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, and an inspired addition to the Lower Manhattan skyline.

New York by Gehry

Architecturally, Gehry’s design carries the drama of the exterior curtain wall movement into residents’ private spaces, the building’s folds result in some 200 unique apartment layouts from which to choose. Where the façade undulates outward, large free-form bay windows that change location from floor to floor make the most of the building’s unique site, allowing for unobstructed panoramic views in every direction.

“This building pays homage to New York City,” said Frank Gehry, “I wanted to create something with humanity to it, in the tradition of other NYC buildings, celebrating both the vibrancy of life here and the quiet moments of contemplation within it. For me, the design has always been focused on creating a high quality of life for the people who will be living inside the building. The bay windows give all of the units wonderful light and the feeling of ‘stepping into space’-of being embraced by New York energy and vitality. Designing the interiors gave me a real connection to the people who will be making their homes here. I hope they like it.”

The New York by Gehry leasing and marketing team, Citi Habitats Marketing Group led by Cliff Finn, and Nancy Packes, Inc. led by Nancy Packes, is right in sync with Frank Gehry’s vision of this No Fee Apartment tower as an extraordinary living space. They believe this vibrant “vertical city,” with its game-changing cachet and thoughtful interior design is arriving on the luxury rental marketplace at the perfect time, poised to meet a healthy demand.

The building’s Rental Gallery showcases some of its magnificent 360˚ vistas. On display are over a dozen of the scores of study models from which the final design evolved, and a signed wall-sized image of Gehry’s first “napkin sketch” of New York by Gehry. Both the Rental Gallery and the 18 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom model units now on view feature Gehry furniture and other custom curated décor.

In addition to New York by Gehry’s resort-like amenities, residents will enjoy No Fee Apartmentthe high style of interiors designed by the architect himself—from the striking sculptural concierge desk in the lobby to the apartment and amenity spaces’ high-end fixtures and finishes. These include white oak flooring, paneling and cabinetry crafted in Gehry’s signature honey-colored vertical grain Douglas Fir and Gehry-designed residential entry door handles and hardware. Frank Gehry praised the developer, Forest City Ratner Companies, for championing his aesthetic choices at every turn.

Said Bruce C. Ratner, Chairman and CEO of Forest City Ratner Companies, “This was a dream collaboration for everyone involved. We knew that Frank’s first-ever tower would transform the city’s skyline, and felt it was critical that the entire building bear the indelible Frank Gehry imprint. We’re thrilled we were able to realize Frank’s vision and achieve a level of excellence that raises the bar.”

Residents of New York by Gehry will have exclusive access to a 24-hour doorman, a porte cochère for vehicles, a full-service concierge, and 22,000 square feet of health, wellness, social, and entertainment amenity spaces. A 6th floor Grilling Terrace with stunning views of the Woolworth building is outfitted with dining cabanas, picnic tables and café seating. The adjacent Game Room is furnished with custom seating by Frank Gehry. On the 7th floor, a 50-foot swimming pool in a sky-lit space is surrounded by fully-retracting glass doors, creating a seamless expanse of indoor and outdoor spaces that includes a wraparound sundeck.

Overlooking City Hall Park to the north, a large Drawing Room with a grand piano is adjacent to a Private Dining Room. Both can be reserved for resident events and serviced from a Chef’s Demonstration and Catering Kitchen. A Spa Treatment Suite and state-of-the-art Fitness Center with views of the Brooklyn Bridge are located on the 7th floor. The 8th floor offers Group Fitness, Pilates and Private Training Studios as well as a Library, a Tweens’ Den, a Children’s Playroom, and a Screening Room with Gehry-designed amphitheatre seating.

Another highlight of New York by Gehry is its ground floor outdoor open space, two beautifully-landscaped public plazas totaling 15,000-square-feet, designed by Field Operations, the creative force behind Manhattan’s High Line, in collaboration with Dutch horticulturist Piet Oudolf, who collaborated with Gehry on Chicago’s Millennium Park. The mixed-use development also includes a five-story, 100,000-square-foot public school, the first ever built in New York City on private land, as well as doctors offices for physicians associated with New York Downtown Hospital.

New York by Gehry-8 Spruce Street: A Gehry Sculpture for Rent

This February’s opening of New York by Gehry is one of the most anticipated building launches Manhattan has had in years!  At 870 feet tall, New York by Gehry is the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere and is a transformative and singularly identifiable addition to the iconic Manhattan skyline. For his first residential commission in New York City, master architect Frank Gehry has modernized the design language of the classic Manhattan high-rise and carried his distinctive aesthetic throughout the building’s interior residential and amenity spaces.

No Fee Apartment

It was Mr. Gehry’s innovative approach to the incorporation of bay windows that led to the No Fee Apartment building’s dynamic silhouette and an exceptional variety of panoramic views from its residences. By shifting the bay windows from floor-to-floor and adjusting their configuration for each residence, he has given residents the opportunity to, as he puts it, “step into space.” The exterior impact of Mr. Gehry’s bay window design solution was that the No Fee Apartment building appeared as though it had been draped in fabric, an effect he further accentuated in his shaping of the façade’s stainless steel panels. In addition to providing sculptural intrigue, the vertical arcs of bay windows allow reflections of natural light to alter the image of the No Fee Apartment building throughout the day.

Set just north of Manhattan’s Financial District near the Brooklyn Bridge, New York by Gehry is just short walk from a variety of dynamic neighborhoods, including Tribeca, Chinatown, and the South Street Seaport. It is also within two blocks of a dozen subway lines that make all areas of New York City easily accessible.

Residents enter New York by Gehry via a porte cochère between Spruce and Beekman Streets that fronts an 11,500 square-foot plaza. In the lobby a custom Frank Gehry designed sculptural concierge desk resonates with the fluidity of the building’s architectural style and complements the lobby’s honey-colored vertical grain Douglas Fir walls.

New York by GehryAmenities

Residents have exclusive access to 22,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor health, wellness, social, and entertainment amenity spaces. These amenities, together with an extensive range of concierge and lifestyle services, offer residents an experience found only in world-class hotels and resorts.

Residences

Mr. Gehry’s design resulted in hundreds of unique floor plans that manifest the potential that the dynamic exterior wall movement offers to residents’ private spaces, and indicate the level of attention given to every detail of the interior experience. In the places where the façade undulates, the residential windows also move out into space – into the apex of the folds – creating free-form bay windows that are fitted with seating or left open to accommodate uniquely shaped dining or reading niches.

Views

Views from inside the building’s residences and amenity spaces include an intimate perspective on the Woolworth Building to the west, the Hudson River’s piers and parks, and all five East River bridges as well as iconic midtown skyscrapers, including the Empire State and Chrysler buildings. Panoramic views farther north include Central Park and the George Washington Bridge. To the south and east Manhattan is seen in the context of the New York Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean.

Architect

Frank Gehry is perhaps the most celebrated and well-known practicing architect in the world today. He has been the recipient of dozens of awards recognizing excellence in architecture, including, in 1989, the most prestigious one in his field, the Pritzker Architecture Prize, which honors “significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.” Mr. Gehry’s commissions, including The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Bilbao, Spain, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and the Nationale-Nederlanden Building in Prague, Czech Republic (known as “The Dancing House”), instantly raise the profile of the cities in which they are located. New York by Gehry, which was commissioned by Forest City Ratner Companies, is Mr. Gehry’s second project in New York City; his first, completed in 2007, is the Inter-Active Corporation (IAC) Headquarters, located in Manhattan’s West Chelsea neighborhood. Mr. Gehry’s IAC has been credited with attracting other exceptional architects to residential and commercial projects in this dynamically evolving area.

Over the past five decades, under Mr. Gehry’s creative direction, Gehry Partners, LLP has designed public and private buildings in North America, Europe, and Asia. Hallmarks of Mr. Gehry’s work include a particular focus on creating spaces that are comfortable to the people who use them, and that exist well within the larger context and culture of their location. The firm’s approach to design is one in which the client becomes fully engaged in the process, making each project a true collaboration.
