Waldorf Astoria stands at the heart of New York life. Located on Park Avenue, it is surrounded by the city’s finest cultural institutions, its best restaurants and bars, and the high-fashion destinations of Madison and Fifth Avenues. The story of the Waldorf Astoria is, in many ways a story of New York City—a story of ambition, innovation, and achievement. From residential interior designer Jean-Louis Deniot, to architect Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, to hotel interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, the team behind the restoration of the Waldorf Astoria are all global icons in their own right.
A profound responsibility is inherent in bringing back to life Waldorf Astoria New York — an icon embedded in New York’s cultural fabric and history. A talented team of preservationists have invested years of work to understand the building’s history and maintain its heritage for future generations, while breathing new life into The Towers. The expert preservationists took great care in restoring the hotel’s unique artifacts, including the Spirit of Achievement statue that graced the Park Avenue entrance, the 1893 World’s Fair Clock, and Cole Porter’s piano.
In homage to the Waldorf Astoria’s long history of arts patronage, residents will enjoy an art collection curated and commissioned by world-renowned auctioneer and collector Simon de Pury. De Pury has commissioned dynamic artists from around the world, such as Korean artist Minjung Kim, to develop custom works for the private residential amenity spaces and common areas. “These artists will help to breathe new life into this historic place,” said de Pury.
Inspired by the hotel’s classic grandeur, internationally acclaimed designer Jean-Louis Deniot has created residences that balance modern comfort with Art Deco opulence; blending the old and the new; the European and the American; the grand and the intimate. Each residence celebrates the scale and beauty of the original architecture—a perfect balance of aesthetic and practical considerations—with windows that replicate the building’s original design and flood the rooms with dynamic views of the New York cityscape.
Kitchens feature wood and lacquer cabinetry custom-designed by Deniot and fabricated by Italian design house Molteni&C, cleverly concealing top-of-the-line German appliances by Gaggenau. Elegant master bathrooms offer heated floors, rain showers, and custom Italian vanities. Handcrafted finishes, natural materials, and subtle Art Deco references bring a sense of history to these gracious contemporary spaces.
The Towers of the Waldorf Astoria offer over 50,000 square feet of private residential amenities and programming paired with the impeccable services of the world’s most iconic hotel. Designed by the esteemed Jean-Louis Deniot, these private recreation, relaxation, and wellness spaces create the ultimate expression of accommodation and service.
A spectacular 25-meter swimming pool overlooking Park Avenue is at the heart of the extensive residential wellness facility on the 25th floor. Residents also have exclusive access to the private fitness center including spa-like wellness lounges with saunas, steam rooms, treatment rooms, and changing areas; private fitness studios; and a personalized health and fitness program facilitated by the hotel spa.
From the landscaped terrace to verdant Winter Garden and chic Monaco Bar, residents have many places to unwind. They can entertain in the private dining room and kitchen, take in skyline views from the Grand Salon, watch a movie in the Stage & Screen Theater, or play cards in the Monte Carlo Gaming Room. Waldorf Astoria is indeed an extraordinary location for the most discerning residents.
