One Manhattan Square will be 'a vertical village with every convenience'

Following its completion, New York's One Manhattan Square has been being kitted out with 100,000sq ft (9,300sq m) of indoor and outdoor amenities aimed at creating "a vertical village with every convenience".

Designed by Adamson Associates for Extell Development Company, the 800ft (244m)-tall residential tower is located on the East River across the water from Brooklyn.

Its glass curtain façade, broken up with sections of warm Muntz metal cladding, will provide expansive views of the surrounding city, the skyline and the river.

At the foot of the tower, 45,000sq ft (4,200sq m) of outdoor space for relaxing will feature garden rooms, a tea pavilion, courtyards and lounges, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, fire pits, a birch garden and an observatory. Ping pong tables, a putting green and an adult treehouse will offer a touch of fun.

Inside, meanwhile, there will be 50,000sq ft (4,600sq m) of recreational, social and fitness amenities spread across four floors.

Most notably, these will include a full-sized basketball court, a golf simulator and a bowling alley.

A multi-level fitness centre will feature four pools, a squash court and a gym with private training rooms and studios for cycling, pilates, yoga and dance, as well as views of New York Harbour.

Completing the wellness offering will be a spa focussed around a tranquil courtyard and a relaxation garden, with private treatment rooms, a sauna and a Hamam.

Elsewhere, residents will have access to a culinary lounge, wine room, cigar room, cellar bar and demonstration kitchen, while for kids there will be a cinema and performance centre, a playroom and an arcade.

The building will accommodate 815 residences in total, ranging in size from one to three bedrooms and with interiors designed by Meyer Davis Studio that will include oak flooring, imported stone and custom finishes, as well as dark and light finish options.
