Sky's motor court with Lamborghini and sculpture by Yayoi Kusama Sky's motor court with Lamborghini and sculpture by Yayoi Kusama
Manhattan’s largest rental building, SKY at 605 West 42nd Street opened its doors to renters this spring and has now removed scaffolding from its lower levels fully revealing its porte-cochère and retail podium. The midblock motor court surrounds a custom pumpkin-shaped bronze sculpture designed by Yayoi Kusama. Additionally, an eye-catching, lime green Lamborghini is currently parked in the driveway.
SKY's canted glass retail podium will be comprised of an approximately 30 foot high, 20,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, as well as a large below grade retail space, with 200 feet of frontage on Eleventh Avenue. Earlier this year it was announced that the luxury fitness company Life Time Fitness Inc. will open its first New York City location along three floors of SKY's base. Called Life Time Athletic at Sky, the new club will be comprised of three pools, a full-sized indoor basketball court, a cafe, yoga and cycling studios as well as a spa.

The 60-story tower designed by Goldstein, Hill, & West offers a total of 1,174 new rental apartments. The sleek slab tower features an indented southeast corner and thin white vertical piers. The Moinian Group developed the tower, which boasts some of the city’s finest amenities and residences. The leasing team is also currently offering a special concession of one month’s free rent on 13-month leases at SKY. There are twelve apartments available for rent: three studios starting from $3,170/month, six 1-bedrooms starting from $3,770/month, and three 2-bedrooms starting from $6,275/month.
Apartment interiors designed by the Rockwell Group feature warm, natural palettes that exude elegance, with full-size window walls to maximize views of the skyline, river, and harbor. Kitchens are Italian-crafted with two finish options, dusk and dawn, and feature quartz countertops and European appliances. Bathrooms feature Olympic gray porcelain tiles. Certain units contain balconies that overlook the Hudson River. The tower also features a penthouse collection called VUE, which combines unmatched views with elegant design. There are currently three penthouses for rent: PH2M, a 2-bedroom, PHIB, a 1-bedroom, and PH2K, a studio.

The Moinian Group placed amenities as a top-priority for the building. Inside, the grand lobby features warm and marble textures and an artisan-made Lasvit chandeliers above the concierge desk. The lobby is flanked by two hand-curated art libraries with fireplaces. SKY also boasts Life Time Athletic’s only New York City location, featuring 70,000 square feet of gyms, three pools, a full-sized indoor basketball court, a café, yoga and cycling studios, and a spa. The tower will also include a water club with a Turkish-style hamman, a billiards lounge and cafe, and a Rockwell Group Imagination playground. SRS Real Estate Partners has also marketed 20,000 square feet on the ground floor and 50,000 square feet on the lower level for retail space.
