SKY-HIGH LUXURY

George Washington didn’t sleep at the Waldorf Towers, but every president since Hoover has—and now you can, too. Private elevators transport residents high above Manhattan to grand homes (several with private terraces) ranging from 500 to 6,000 square feet. Some units boast marble entry galleries and mahogany doors. Fabulous kitchens feature high-end appliances from Sub-Zero, Viking, and Miele, as well as opulent finishes, such as marble worktops and limestone floors. Master baths are dressed in marble with original pewter fixtures. The Tower Lounge serves a continental breakfast daily, and pre-dinner cocktails and delicacies. Count on a quick turnaround from Waldorf Towers’ dedicated concierge staff no matter how far-fetched your request. Included in monthly rents: work out at the Waldorf-Astoria’s Plus One Fitness Center; take care of business at the tower’s business center; or order room service around the clock. Other services include daily housekeeping, twice-daily turndown service, and valet parking. From month-to-month to five-year leases. From $15,000 monthly. IMMEDIATE OCCUPANCY.

SENSE OF COMMUNITY

Stretching from 51st Street to 53rd Street, along Tenth Avenue, is the LEED-certified “green” Archstone Clinton luxury rental community, offering studio to two-bedroom homes, including penthouses, in a pair of high-rise towers—some with private balconies or patios. Ranging from 426 to 1,816 square feet, you’ll find parquet wood floors, ceramic-tiled master baths with speckled stone finishes, deluxe kitchens dressed up in maple- or cherry-wood custom cabinetry, granite worktops, and the latest appliances from Whirlpool. Some have Whirlpool washers and dryers, too. There are two health clubs, yoga/meditation studios, a rooftop deck, and the park-like Oasis Community Garden. Other on-site amenities include parking, party rooms and special events lounges with catering kitchens, media room, library, and Web-enabled laundry machines that notify you when your
laundry is finished. From $2,560 per month. IMMEDIATE OCCUPANCY.

PLAY-PER-VIEW

This two-bedroom Mandarin Hotel residence in the north tower of the Time-Warner Center tops out at 1,748 square feet. Dramatic to the nth degree, this apartment is located on the 68th floor with picture-perfect views from the floor-to-ceiling windows of Central Park, the Hudson River, and the city’s skyline. It’s fully furnished and filled with plenty of custom built-ins and walk-in closets. A generously sized gallery leads to a spectacular living room, and both bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms with enormous marble tubs, oversized stall showers, and bidets. The master bedroom has a sizable dressing area. The kitchen is filled with top-of-the-line appliances. Hotel services are provided by Mandarin Oriental, and superstar highlights include a 14,500-square-foot spa, fitness center, and a 75-foot indoor lap pool. As expected from a five-star hotel, there’s beck-and-call service from a Clefs d’Or concierge staff, daily housekeeping, 24/7 room service, and award-winning dining at Asiate. $30,000 per month. IMMEDIATE OCCUPANCY.

“Rental developments of today, such as 37 Wall Street, are as rich in luxury and amenities as their condominium counterparts. Tenants have come to expect a doorman and/or concierge, luxury finishes, modern kitchen appliances, luxurious bathrooms, and a host of other amenities once deemed only available in high-end condominium projects.” Gary Malin, COO, Citi Habitats
