This rather exquisite, blossoming white residential tower at 200 East 59th Street rises from a tightly “woven,” silver-colored aluminum “flower pot,” its multi-story retail base, on the southeast corner of Third Avenue diagonally across from Bloomingdale’s store.

The 35-story tower was developed by Harry Macklowe, the developer of the very tall 432 Park Avenue nearby and the angular black mixed-use and very handsome Metropolitan Tower on 57th Street, in 2017 and has 67 condominium apartments.

It was designed by Cetra-Ruddy.

The building has a very attractive website highlighted by an elephant on a high-floor balcony snaring a passing balloon.

Bottom Line

A modest but crisp modern tower that substitutes the grandeur of great bases in the SuperTall era of flamboyant tops and it also has superb apartment layouts.

Description

The apartment tower is setback atop the very handsome “woven” metal base, which echoes the vertical basketweave partial base on One57 that has deep and wavy entrance marquees across from Carnegie Hall on West  57th Street.

The balconies are on the west and north façades and have large circular support columns that free up interior apartment spaces.

The building is topped with a small circular element.

Amenities

 

The building has a doorman, a 24-hour concierge, a double-height gym, a valet, a bicycle room, a residents’ lounge with fireplace, dining room and catering kitchen, and a laundry.  The building allows pets.

Apartments

Apartments have 10-foot-high ceilings and the penthouses have 14-foot-high ceilings.

The floor-to-ceiling windows with slender metal framework.

The balconies have glass railings.

Apartments have white oak plank floors and washers and dryers.

Kitchens have white Calacatta countertops and backsplashes and Brilliant White glass appliances by Miele.

Master bathrooms have Siberian white walls and floors and floating Siberian mink marble vanities, Toto wall-mounted toilers, rain showers and radiant heated floors.

Powder rooms has Ceruse white oak walls and slender pedestral sinks with equally slender tall mirrors.
