A global icon of quintessential New York City, The Waldorf Astoria New York occupies a full city block between Park Avenue and 50th street in Midtown Manhattan. Surrounded by world-class architecture, landmarks, museums and parks, the hotel was the largest and tallest in the world when it opened in 1931.
Waldorf Astoria New York has been the primary residence of world leaders, royalty, and the global elite; today the building is being fully restored into a collection of 375 private condominium residences positioned above a 375-key hotel. The development of the property will offer, for the first time, a chance to own a home at one of the most celebrated addresses in the world, with best-in-class amenities spanning 50,000 sq ft and services emblematic of the legendary Waldorf Astoria.
Inspired by the hotel’s classic grandeur, internationally acclaimed designer Jean-Louis Deniot has created residences that balance modern comfort with Art Deco opulence; blending the old and the new; the European and the American; the grand and the intimate. Each residence celebrates the scale and beauty of the original architecture—a perfect balance of aesthetic and practical considerations—with windows that replicate the building’s original design and flood the rooms with dynamic views of the New York cityscape.
As New York City’s largest private interior landmark, the restoration of Waldorf Astoria New York will see a number of key heritage spaces returned to the original 1931 design. Many legendary artefacts will be returning to the property including: a piano which once belonged to Cole Porter, and the 1893 World’s Fair Clock Tower.
