Recently Completed Premier Fifth Avenue Condo Debuts New Model Unit
- Dec 15, 2011
New York—Shoppers seeking the best of the best in Manhattan condominium accommodations are getting a new glimpse of what could be their future home at The Residences at 400 Fifth Avenue. Bizzi & Partners Development, owner of the brand new 184-unit property, tapped interior designer Nicole Fuller Interiors to bring to life a new unit to grab the attention of potential buyers.
Occupying floors 31-60 in the 60-story The Setai Fifth Avenue building, The Residences features one- two- and three-bedroom units and penthouses in the Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects-designed tower, which is also home to the 214-room The Setai Fifth Avenue Hotel. Nicole Fuller, president and creative director of Nicole Fuller Interiors, spearheaded the design of the new unit. Fuller’s plan for the two-bedroom condo on the 52nd floor resulted in a model featuring modern interiors evoking practically every vision of über upscale living imaginable.
Sophistication enhanced with a contemporary style was the goal. “The interiors are fused with a sense of timeless elegance and modern glamour,” Miller noted in a prepared statement. “I was inspired to create an atmosphere that captivates and embraces you with warmth and tranquility. I also felt it was important to pay tribute to the Fifth Avenue location, which sustains a certain element of style that is rooted in generations of family heirlooms, art and luxury interiors.” Furnishings from such well-known names as B&B Italia, Cowtan & Tout–Larsen and a host of other high-end home décor retailers decorate the unit, as does artwork from celebrated local artist Peter Tunney
Douglas Elliman Developments Marketing has been on board as The Residences exclusive sales and marketing agent since the spring. The firm will have a captive audience to which it can present the property’s new model unit, as the Manhattan condo market is hot and getting hotter. Sales volume for luxury residences jumped 17.4 percent from the second quarter to the third quarter, according to a Douglas Elliman report, and year-over-year transactions rose 16.9 percent.
