Razzle Dazzle: Colin Cowie's Manhattan Marvel

Leverage LookbookJanuary 01, 2014
"It reeks of chic," says event planner to the stars Colin Cowie, of the duplex penthouse he has put on the market for $5.75 million. The 15-story modern edifice of limestone and gray brick -- named The Emory and located in Manhattan's historic Flatiron district -- is by Morris Adjmi Architects. Cowie closed on the top two units in 2009 and proceeded to customize the resulting nearly 3,000-square-foot space into a glamorous couture haven where he could host his legendary parties. The apartment, available with furnishings for an additional sum, is awash in materials and surfaces that emanate shimmer and shine.
