Residents at Macklowe Properties’ and CIM Group’s 432 Park Avenue won’t have to go far for a fancy meal. In fact, they don’t necessarily ever have to leave home.
The building will have its own private Michelin-starred chef, according to New York Magazine’s Grub Street. Shaun Hergatt, who ran the now-closed Midtown restaurant Juni, will take the entire 12th floor in the skinny supertall. The restaurant will only be open to residents of the 96-story tower, whose known residents include Qatari diplomat Nassi Abdulaziz Al-Nasser and Douglas Elliman CEO Howard Lorber. According to the New York Times, Bentel & Bentel is designing the restaurant, which does not yet have a name.
Residents-only dining and drinking seems to be a mounting trend in Manhattan luxury real estate. WeLive, an apartment tower in Financial District has a speakeasy style bar that is only open to its residents. At 111 Murray Street in Tribeca, residents of the luxury condominium will be served complimentary breakfasts at the building’s exclusive coffee bar.
With sky-high prices, it’s perhaps no surprise that properties like 432 Park are upping their amenities game. In May, a mystery buyer picked up a penthouse in the building whose asking price was $76.5 million. [NYT and Grub Street] — Kathryn Brenzel
