Real estate analyst Jonathan Miller has speculated that New York’s inability to build new housing at a pace that meets demand could lead to a supply crunch. Time will tell whether that plays out, but one certainty is that it has sharpened the city’s economic divide. At a time when the typical New York renter is embroiled in bidding wars for $4,000/month studios, the most elite class of buyer is paying stratospheric prices for apartments hitting new levels of luxury. Billionaires’ Row attracts a high-profile clientele, while others are drawn to prewar conversions in hip downtown neighborhoods for the cachet of having something truly one-of-a-kind. Still others see admission into some of the city's most elite prewar co-ops as the ultimate status symbol.
Wherever they choose to buy, these luxury buyers have several specific needs. Having presumably accumulated a large fine art collection, abundant wall space is required to properly display it/show if off. However, the art is often in stiff competition for attention with the views, whether of skyline panoramas or charming historic streetscapes.
111 West 57th Street, #28

Inside the apartment, expansive rooms are a must-have. In some buildings, this can result in formal dining rooms larger than some studio apartments; moreover, between sitting areas, walk-in closets, dressing rooms, not one but two baths, and morning kitchens, some primary suites could double as second apartments within the unit.
State-of-the-art kitchens must feature state-of-the-art appliances, enough storage space for the culinary equipment required to make a gourmet meal, and top-of-the-line finishes. Indeed, rare woods and high-end materials are required throughout the apartment, leaving no detail overlooked.
Finally, this class of luxury buyer tends to be extremely protective of their privacy to a point where homes with direct elevator access, if not full-floor units with no neighbors around, prove highly appealing. To those wondering why they don’t just buy a townhouse, the answer is access to top-of-the-line amenities (think luxury gym, squash court, pool, spa area, and screening room) under one roof, as well as a highly attentive building staff that can cater to their every needs and be helpful where privacy is concerned.

From the Listing: It's not just one thing about apartment 1810 that makes it a standout, it's absolutely everything. It's every single thoughtful detail that won't go unnoticed.

It's the steel I-beam that is on display as a towering sculptural object, and also the rich textures present in the one-of-a-kind sliding wooden wall, imported from an ancient Indonesian temple. It's moments like these throughout the home, that make 1810 so special and why it must be seen in person. See floor plan and full details here.
