VIEW FROM THE TOP

The East River and Central Park views from any one of 40 Tower Residences at The Capri on East 55th Street between Second and Third avenues are endless. Starting on the 33rd floor, with no more than three 1, 2 or 3BR condominium apartments per floor (ranging in size from 651sf to 1,930sf) are available all the way up to the 47th floor of this Costas Kondylis-designed building. They all include floor-to-ceiling windows with Crema Marfil marble sills and diagonally laid maple wood flooring. Sleekly styled kitchens boast burnt-suede maple and aluminum-framed glass cabinetry with cashmere-gold granite countertops—and the latest from Sub-Zero and Miele. Master bath appointments include Italian marble walls and tub surrounds, oversized Neptune soaking bathtubs, glass-enclosed showers and Kohler sinks. Round-the-clock attended lobby. Priced from $855,000 to $3.4 million. OPEN.

PARK AND SHOP

For those who wish to live in a Rosario Candela building just steps from Central Park or browse the shops along 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, check out No. 4C, a 2BR/ 2.5bath condominium at the Gwathmey Siegel-designed Windsor Park. Located on West 58th Street, every room in this prewar masterpiece comes with wide-plank espresso-stained oak floors and oversized windows looking out onto Avenue of the Americas. The unit has a marble foyer leading to its Great Room, and an open kitchen outfitted in anigre wood cabinetry topped off in granite. Appliances are Sub-Zero, Miele and Viking, including an under-counter wine cooler. All the bathrooms are done in marble and granite—and the master bath features a cast-iron Japanese soaking tub and separate statuary white marble and glass shower stall. The Fitness Center has yoga, meditation and Pilates rooms and there’s a lovely landscaped rooftop terrace. $1.785 million.

TALL ORDER

What was once the Williamsburgh Savings Bank and still Brooklyn’s tallest building is now One Hanson Place, at Flatbush and Atlantic avenues in Fort Greene. The historic finishes inside the gold-domed clock tower landmark building are everywhere and all 189 units come with spectacular water views, including some with bird’s eye vistas of Lady Liberty. From studios to 2BRs, all will feature 11ft-high ceilings, Brazilian teak floors throughout, and some have lovely private terraces. Gourmet kitchens have white lacquer cabinetry with lava stone countertops; the appliances are professional-grade Viking. Mosaic stone master baths are smartly styled with custom vanities, soaking tubs and frameless glass showers. There will be a collection of 3BR Tower units, but they won’t go on sale until after the summer. Resident amenities abound—a 24/7 business center, library, gym, kids’ playroom, glass-walled sky lounge and sundecks. From $350,000. MID-2007.
