The Manhattan skyline is ranked NYC's number one attraction according to ratings accrued by the travel website TripAdvisor. Review after review, visitors are impressed by the city’s juxtaposition of old and new architecture, and of the twinkling lights and illuminated tower-tops seen at night.
One of many new additions to grace our urban mosaic is the svelte glass condo-tower, 50 West. Developed by Time Equities and designed by award-winning Helmut Jahn, the 64-story, 778-foot high skyscraper rises at the forefront of the downtown skyline, prominently seen from the harbor, the Hudson River and New Jersey.

Yesterday, the project team tipped us that the crown lighting has been turned on, illuminating the building’s pinnacle with a soft white glow. The lighting is the finishing touch on Jahn’s modern yet elegant design which features curved-glass corners, an exquisite green-glass/stainless-steel curtain, and a pitched roof that pays homage to the taller World Trade Center buildings to the north. At the foot of the building will be a landscaped plaza and a glass-covered pedestrian bridge (now under construction) that will better connect the Financial District to Battery Park City.
The illuminated crown joins other downtown landmarks such as the spire of One World Trade Center, the reinstalled lighting at 70 Pine Street, and newly-lit top of the Four Seasons Private Residences at 30 Park Place.

50 West accommodates 191 condo units refined by Thomas Juul-Hansen and Rene Desjardins. Many homes are duplexes with double-height corner living rooms and curving exposures that spectacularly look out onto the city and harbor. Kitchens have stone slab countertops and backsplashes, extra-spacious refrigerators and freezers, a six-burner stove, and a full-height wine refrigerator. Master baths are fitted with large marble stone slabs, a freestanding soaking tub, a benched steam shower, and sauna.
