In December 2014, Spa Castle opened its first Manhattan location in a 39,000-square-foot space at 115 East 57th Street. But its neighbors sued the sprawling spa even before it opened, claiming renovations to an eighth-floor roof of the Galleria Building were ruining residents’ views. Now, the two parties seem to have come to an agreement.

The condo board of the Ritz Tower at 465 Park Avenue settled its dispute with Spa Castle Premier 57 after suing the nudity-friendly spa in late 2014 for obstructing residents’ views.

Spa Castle, which features a roof deck, floor-to-ceiling windows and a swim-up pool bar, was renovating several floors of the Galleria Building next door, including the rooftop, but the condo board claimed the construction was blocking views from its property and offending public morals – even though the nude guests had yet to arrive.

The terms of the settlement weren’t disclosed, but court documents filed earlier this month state that the condo board discontinued the suit and “have since entered into a settlement agreement.”

Luxury Listings NYC reviewed Spa Castle shortly after it opened and found that in some ways it failed to deliver the royal treatment.
