The Bryant, 16 West 40th Street The Bryant, 16 West 40th Street (David Chipperfield Architects)
When we checked-in with The Bryant in August, the mixed-use tower had begun receiving its precast stone façade. Progress on the project continues, and earlier this week the building officially topped out at 34 stories. On Tuesday, David Chipperfield Architects and HFZ Capital Group celebrated the occasion with a reception on the building's 31st floor.

It's the first condominium to be built on Bryant Park and as promised, the views are exquisite.
David Chipperfield at the topping-out reception held on the 31st floor.
Bryant Park is across the street from the new building and according to David Chipperfield, it fully inspired his design. He noted that in the age of technical configuration, it can be much easier to promote and sell a building with a unique shape or flashy glass façade. His design, however, favors the materiality of a precast concrete terrazzo façade with a mosaic of marble and sandstone chips – details that can be challenging to convey using computer models. The architect tipped his hat to Ziel Feldman of HFZ for supporting the design despite this. The ultimate effect is a tower that forges a wonderful relationship and symmetry with the iconic park.
The building will function as both a hotel and residences. Up to the 15th floor will be 215 hotel rooms, and above that are the 57 condominium residences. The residences are 40% sold, and remaining units include 1-bedrooms starting from $2.57 million, 2-bedrooms from $5.325 million, and a 3-bedroom unit for $6.94 million. Occupancy is expected in June of 2017.

Like the façade, the interiors feature a thoughtful and elegant design. The concept includes oak herringbone floors with radiant heating and honed terrazzo borders, as well as custom white lacquer floor-to-ceiling millwork that allows for built-in storage. Kitchens feature custom designed cabinetry, rich Calacatta Gold marble countertops and backsplashes, Gaggenau appliances, and Elkay under-mount stainless steel sinks. Bathrooms have radiant heat terrazzo floors, glass-enclosed wet rooms with rain showers, Dornbracht fixtures, and Statuarietto marble walls, countertops, and tub surrounds.

The homes will have floor-to-ceiling sliding windows with Juliet balconies to optimize the unique park views. There are two triplex penthouses with double height loggias that are over 400 square feet, private interior elevators, and fireplaces. The penthouses have private roof decks with an adjoining sunroom, powder room, and waterfall island.

Amenities at The Bryant will include a state-of-the-art fitness center with a steam room, a sauna and showers, a private lobby lounge, and a club living room lounge with a fireplace, a conference room, a dining room, a bar, and a landscaped terrace. More services will include catering and in-residence dining, a la carte hotel services, a 24-hour attended lobby, a porter service, private storage, cold storage, and bicycle storage.
The condominiums for sale at The Bryant join 550 others that are for sale in the area of Midtown West which have a median price of $2.17 million or $1,996 per square foot. The average closing price for a condo in the area this October was $1,717 per square foot, up from last October’s average closing price of $1,843 per square foot.
