“From the beginning of this project, we envisioned bringing an elevated living experience to Hell’s Kitchen,” says Jonathan Landau, CEO of Fortis Property Group. “540West delivers an attainable living option without compromising on quality or design. There is no other new construction residential project like it in the neighborhood, as evidenced by the record-breaking prices we’re achieving, including a $2,300 per square foot penthouse sale.”

Prices for the remaining units—three expansive duplexes and four penthouses—start at $735,000 with penthouses topping out the range at $3.575 million.
The remaining units include private roof terraces and a premium appliance package in addition to access to the developments assortment of amenities.

The property will also have a 24-hour doorman.
“540West has resonated with buyers who appreciate its quality, the fiber of the neighborhood and the fact that they can close within 100 days,” says Stephen McArdle, senior managing director of Halstead Property Development Marketing, which is exclusively handling sales and marketing at 540West. “The remaining units will not stay long on the market for long.”
