Top 10 Building Pairs

#1 - The San Remo, 145 Central Park West

Co-op in Central Park West

The San Remo started the trend of twin-towered buildings in New York City, and remains a standout on the Central Park West skyline decades later. Smaller floor plates in the towers mean fewer units per floor, which in turn leads to more privacy and light -- two qualities that remain eternal for comfortable luxury living.



#2 - The Eldorado, 300 Central Park West

Co-op in Central Park West

The northernmost of Emery Roth's multi-tower buildings on Central Park West, The Eldorado is further distinguished by its ornamented setbacks, geometric spires, and Art Deco-style design. Such features were instrumental in its designation as a New York City Landmark and a contributing property to the Central Park West Historic District.

#4 - The Majestic, 115 Central Park West

Co-op in Central Park West

Before the stock market crash, a single 45-story tower with a dining room and ballroom was planned for 115 Central Park West. The combination of the Great Depression and a newly enacted multiple dwellings law resulted in the project being scaled back and one tower becoming two rising from the base. The result is larger tower units overlooking Central Park.



#5 - Eagle + West, 1 Eagle Street

No fee rental in Greenpoint

Designer OMA Architects has described Eagle + West as "a ziggurat and its inverse." In addition to making a powerful statement in the new Greenpoint skyline, both towers are angled to make the most of natural light and waterfront views. Oversized windows fill every unit with natural light, and residents of both towers enjoy access to an extensive amenity package.


#6 - One Central Park, 25 Columbus Circle

Condo in Central Park West

An unofficial landmark at the nexus of Midtown West and the Upper West Side, the towers of Deutsche Bank Center rise from a curved, low-rise base that houses The Shops at Columbus Circle. The south tower houses the condos of One Central Park; the north tower houses a Mandarin Oriental hotel with a residential component, and both towers were designed to align with Broadway.



#7 - Chatham Towers, 180 Park Row

Co-op in Lower East Side

The Two Bridges section of Lower Manhattan is not known for its eye-catching high-rises, but one notable exception is Chatham Towers. This pair of Brutalist buildings stands out as much for its towering height as for its unique balcony design.



#8 - One High Line, 500 West 18th Street

Condo in Chelsea

At the full-block One High Line, the two towers are angled to make the most of Manhattan skyline and Hudson River vistas. The East Tower apartments start on top of New York's first Faena Hotel outpost and feature interiors by Gilles & Boissier. The all-residential West Tower has interiors by Gabellini Sheppard. The towers are connected by a pair of sky bridges, and residents of both towers have access to an extensive amenity package.



#9 - Lantern House, 515 West 18th Street

Condo in Chelsea

While most two-towered buildings are connected by a sky bridge or podium, Lantern House's two buildings are connected beneath the High Line by a private garden and attended lobby. The bay windows in each tower allow for abundant natural light and open views of both the elevated park and the Manhattan skyline.

#10 - The Century, 25 Central Park West

Condo in Central Park West

In the Central Park West Historic District, full-block development The Century's two-towered design keeps it from ominously looming over its surroundings. Indeed, the Art Deco-inspired architecture makes it a pleasing addition to the Central Park West skyline.
