The first look has been revealed for Rose Hill, a 183-m (600-ft) condo tower in Manhattan, New York, designed by global architecture firm CetraRuddy[2]. Located in the NoMad neighborhood, the building pays homage to its surroundings and the city’s history of skyscraper architecture.

Integrating an expressive glass, metal, and terra cotta façade with market-responsive amenities and interior layouts, the building has been designed for contemporary urban living.

At 45 stories with 123 residential units, the 21,368-m2 (230,000-sf) project aspires to create a new presence on the New York skyline, highlighted by distinctive setbacks, bronze-tone cladding, and chevron-patterned vertical elements.

Inspired by Rockefeller Group[3]’s landmark developments, decorative lighting will illuminate the tower’s base and crown to highlight the building’s unique articulation.

The first ground-up Manhattan residential project for Rockefeller Group, best known for the Rockefeller Center development, Rose Hill’s form and program draws on CetraRuddy’s experience in new tower design and residential conversions of historic landmarks creating urban homes reflective of an authentic New York attitude.

The building features three floors of amenity space, embracing a community atmosphere designed for a social and active lifestyle. Highlights include a library, a large, lobby-level private bar/lounge, and an ‘observatory’ resident lounge occupying the 37th floor, offering expansive terraces and skyline views.
