Amidst a brevier of restaurants and galleries such as the London Bar, Burger Shot Beer, and Taboon, Mercedes House cuts a striking image. A one-off zigzag layout for the roof creates an abundance of outdoor space and a sleek exterior design that is unlikely to be forgotten by the casual observer. This spectacularly designed and luxurious building sits at 555 West 53rd Street and stands a full 30 stories tall.
The Mercedes House was designed by architect Enrique Norton and the development company, Two Trees Management. In the first installment of the complex, a range of units—from 400 square foot studios to 1,000 square foot two bedrooms—are offered for renters. Each unit comes replete with floor-to-ceiling windows, lavish solid oak floors and sky-high 10 foot ceilings. Washers and dryers are offered within each sun-lit unit and many come with open terraces.
The location of Mercedes House is excellent—placed on Manhattan’s western edge in. A plethora of amenities that more than exceeds expectations make this building the place that residents will be excited to call home. For the fitness enthusiasts in New York City, Mercedes House offers a boxing ring, indoor basketball, yoga, bocce and an ultra-modern wellness center, as well as indoor and outdoor pools. The two outdoor decks are placed along the zigzag rooftop and have great spots for sun bathing, an amphitheater, and a large circular pool. If you think these amenities are not quite over the top yet, consider this: within the Mercedes House, there are also stables outfitted for NYPD police horses.
A short jaunt from the renovated Clinton Park, this complex offers little reason for a tenant to ever leave the premises. On-site volleyball courts, spa facilities and views that stretch from Clinton Park to the Hudson River make this one apartment complex to put on your list.
