Twenty 9th Park Madison Condo Gets Glassy!


"Twenty 9th Park Madison", that's what they call it...really! I guess they have officially run out of condo names or creativity or something. I have a couple of thoughts on the building. First, I will admit, considering the size of the project, I do like the look of the building. It's huge, but it seems to slice into the sky in a way that minimizes it's mass. Second, they are selling views, and I believe they are legit on this claim, and that they will probably have superior views compared to similarly priced Skyhouse Condos (now that's a name) a block away. The amenity package also seems to be in line with luxury standards with the requisite fitness center, roofdeck with barbeque grill, and an expresso bar in the lobby. I am, however, a little disappointed. While the 1 bedroom layouts seemed adequate, the 2 bedrooms with a 13'5"x 12'5" "master bedroom" leaves a bit to be desired. Second, although the idea of teak flooring sounds good, I believe it was a poor choice. Teak is a relatively soft wood, and it was apparent from the model that they can take a beating rather quickly. The finish on the floors is shiny, yet not glossy, and could be mistaken for imitation hardwoods. However, if it is views and a great looking building that you are looking for "The Excelsia", um, er, "Twenty 9th Park Madison" is worth a look.

  3. A changing area perhaps...? The addition of the Hotel Gansevoort opposite this building in 18 months time with three levels open to the public has to help. I wonder if other restaurants and bars will follow as happened in the Meatpacking district? Three blocks from Madison Square Park and great transport links - not a bad place to be if you work in Midtown. Pricing seems fair given the quality of what you're getting.
