NEW YORK, NY—July 2016
Legacy Builders is pleased to announce the ongoing renovations of Manhattan View at MiMA, a brand new luxury condominium co-developed by Kuafu Properties and SCG America that comprises the top 13 floors of the 63-story MiMA development. The residences are accessible via a private lobby at 460 West 42nd Street. Manhattan View offers spectacular river-to-river views and a remarkable 44,000 square feet of exclusive resident amenities.
Creating High-End Finishes for Lavish Condominiums
Legacy Builders, along with distinguished interior designer Jamie Drake of Drake/Anderson were, brought on by the co-developers to re-envision the pinnacle of the tower and create an exclusive collection of 151 condominium residences that evoke a sense of contemporary glamour. Ranging from studio to three-bedrooms, Legacy Builders provided luxurious contemporary finishes, including wide plank brushed oak wood floors throughout and double-glazed floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a full panorama of the city’s skyline, the Hudson River and beyond. Kitchens feature high-gloss lacquer cabinetry, polished white Carrara marble waterfall-edge countertops and backsplashes and Gaggenau appliances. The gracious master bathrooms were fitted with white Carrara marble floors, grey lacquer vanities with stainless-steel legs and Calacatta marble tops, along with soaking tubs enclosed in beautiful stone in select residences.
“Each and every residence has its own uniquely stunning view and my design for the interiors celebrates that,” explained Jamie Drake. “I was inspired by the continually exhilarating effervescent spirit of the great city I call home and love so much. With icons of the skyline sparkling and glittering outside every window, I wanted to bring that same excitement and elegance inside.”
Lobby Design Compliments Exclusive Amenities
The private lobby creates the ultimate luxury experience of living at Manhattan View with a 24-hour doorperson and a dedicated concierge available to assist with every personal need. White glove á la carte services include valet parking, housekeeping and dry cleaning.
