This 1,140sf one bedroom, one-and-a-half bath residence is one of a limited collection of distinct gallery-like loft residences sited in the podium of the building. Foster + Partners employ concrete elements within the lofts - floors finished in diamond-polished high-grade concrete and ribbed concrete ceilings, showcasing the power of structure and the elegance of city living.
Selene is designed by Pritzker-Prize winning architect Norman Foster and located on 53rd Street off Park Avenue in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. The meticulously refined residences reflect a level of craftsmanship rarely evidenced in new development. Every detail, from the millwork, to the fittings, to the generously-scaled floor plans, is enhanced by the wondrous natural light and cinematic views framed by the custom floor-to-ceiling undulating windows. Residences enjoy an array of light and color throughout the day and captivating day-to-night compositions of New York's most celebrated architectural landmarks.
Sky Collection Residences are infused with natural light and feature multiple exposures along with Carlisle eight-inch oversized wide-plank white oak flooring and the Modern Loft Collection offers exposed concrete columns, architectural concrete walls, ribbed concrete ceilings and diamond-polished concrete flooring. All homes include Foster + Partners-designed custom millwork and bronze-finish, flush oak interior doors.
The graciously proportioned and purposely detailed open kitchens welcome informal entertaining. The Sky Collection Residences feature Italian Carrara marble countertops and backsplashes while the Modern Loft Collection offers brushed stainless steel countertops with integrated sinks and backsplashes. Kitchens are outfitted in Foster + Partners-designed cabinetry with wire brush oak millwork and a Gaggenau appliance suite.
Reflecting the luminous quality of light that bathes each residence, primary bathrooms are encased in the warm glow of Silver Striato travertine. These bespoke retreats feature wire brushed oak vanities with bronze detailing, radiant heated flooring, steam showers and freestanding soaking tubs. In addition to travertine flooring, secondary baths provide custom Apaiser countertops with integrated sinks and powder rooms offer Agora Black Turkish marble countertops with integrated sinks.
Inspired by its neighboring Modernist masterpieces, the 63-story Selene is composed as a timeless contemporary landmark standing alongside the iconic Seagram Building and Lever House. Its signature glass faade enhances the residences within with cascading natural light. Selene further reinforces the clarity and luminosity of the design by its welcoming sanctuary provided by extraordinary lifestyle features and amenities.
Every lifestyle offering is thoughtfully considered and composed to rejuvenate and relax. Public spaces designed by AD100 recipient William T. Georgis are appointed with a museum quality art collection, anchored by an installation in the Fireside Lobby by celebrated artist Rachel Feinstein. Amenity spaces span four floors and are naturally lit by floor-to-ceiling glass walls. The 60-foot-long garden sanctuary swimming pool is surrounded by an arbor of trees. The enfilade of wellness spaces and lounges including The Spa, Fitness and Yoga Salons, Billiards Lounge, Conference Room and Library are finished with slatted oak and smokey granite. The Michelin-starred Le Jardinier restaurant-helmed by Chef Alain Verzeroli and the first New York City restaurant designed by AD100 recipient Joseph Dirand-is just an elevator ride away.
Selene is at the coveted apex of city sophistication, surrounded by the shopping of Fifth Avenue, the culinary destinations of Midtown, the cultural richness of MoMA, Carnegie Hall, Broadway, and iconic Central Park. Reflecting a level of craftsmanship rarely evidenced in new development, Selene is Living In A New Light.
