Manhattan’s 200 East 59th Street, the slender, balcony-ringed tower that stands at the southeast corner of Third Avenue and East 59th Street, was developed by Macklowe Properties and serves as a reflection of the developer’s commitment to top-tier architecture and classical modernity in luxury residential buildings. The 35-story boutique skyscraper, which was completed by Centurian Real Estate Partners, contains just 67 premium properties, with just two or three units per floor.
The high-design tower is located at the intersection of Manhattan’s Midtown and Upper East Side neighborhoods, with nearby access to Central Park and luxury shopping—Bloomingale’s is across the street, along with a variety of dining and entertainment options.

At the apex of the building and up for sale for $42.5 million, a one-of-a-kind triplex combines two penthouses with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms dispersed across more than 7,800 square feet. The aerie is accessed via a private elevator. Classically modern design elements that make the residence feel bright and airy include light wood flooring, white- and neutral-colored marbles in the bathrooms and the kitchen, and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light.
A gracious entrance gallery on the 34th-floor connects to the expansive living and dining room, which spills out to a large terrace that fits chaise lounges and tables for warm-weather entertaining. Only the finest materials and appliances were used in the open-concept kitchen outfitted with honed Calacatta marble slab countertops, integrated white-glass appliances, and aluminum trimmed white-glass cabinetry by Aran Cucine. The 33rd floor houses the glass-enclosed primary suite, which boasts its own terrace.
Altogether, there’s a total of almost 4,700 square feet of private outdoor space, including a partially covered rooftop deck with jaw-dropping views of Manhattan. The two levels of terraces are connected by a spiral staircase.
“This triplex penthouse is among the most coveted, rare homes available in all of New York City,” says Kathryn Neugold, sales director for 200 East 59th Street. “It is the ultimate private oasis perched high above Midtown with sweeping panoramic views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. Designed with the intention of creating a luxurious indoor-outdoor lifestyle, this residence takes center stage as a one-of-a-kind offering with exquisite interiors designed by the award-winning CetraRuddy.”
The penthouse has column-free interiors thanks to CetraRuddy’s impressive engineering. They accomplished this by pushing the interior support structures to the edges of the building’s envelope.
“The penthouse is one of the most exceptional new residences coming to the market in New York City, and it’s the ultimate expression of our vision for 200 East 59th Street,” says John Cetra, cofounder of CetraRuddy. “The design approach for this building is focused on inspired architectural solutions. The penthouse is the crown of this approach, with a two-story exterior spiral staircase that connects the residence’s wraparound terrace to its private roof terrace. This idea reinforces the unique design part that locates the building’s columns to the outdoor terraces, expressing the structure while creating more expansive and flexible interior spaces also seen in the penthouse residence.”
