When it comes to new residential developments, it’s hard to beat the breadth of everything going on in Nomad. The neighborhood located within and around the Madison Square North Historic District is brimming with recently constructed and under-development residential options that have potential New York City condo buyers very excited. They include Rafael Viñoly’s 277 Fifth Avenue, 262 Fifth Avenue, and the Rockefeller Group’s Rose Hill on East 29th Street.

Another project that has plenty of potential buyers looking in its direction is Madison House, located at 15 East 30th Street. According to Curbed, this 200-unit condo tower recently launched sales. Developed by JD Carlise Development and Fosun International Limited, this luxury residential building stands out by rising above the crowd, literally. It’s the tallest tower in the neighborhood at 805 feet. And the angular crown is made of terra cotta and glass, which leaves you with little chance of missing it.

Designed by Handel Architects, the Madison House facade evokes natural basalt and takes advantage of the surrounding landmark’s setback architecture in order to stand out.

Every residence in Madison House comes with a corner window, a rarity in Manhattan real estate. The 11-foot ceilings ensure that residents can enjoy panoramic views of the skyline and beyond. Many of these homes get a clear view of the Empire State Building, while others get the East and Hudson Rivers.

A private foyer invites everyone towards the living room with floor-to-ceiling windows. The Gachot Studios-designed residences offer a mixture of modern materials and warm finishes in a style self-described as “warm minimalism.”

Units include natural materials throughout, including Italian marble counters and rift wood flooring in the kitchens. Custom cabinetry, Bosch appliances, and a Calacatta Borghini marble island are also included there. Meanwhile, Grecian stone lines the bathrooms. The master bath boasts Bianco Dolomiti marble slabs and vanities.

As for amenities, Madison House offers 30,000 square feet of club-style amenities space for residents to enjoy. The spa boasts a 75-foot, multi-lane pool, a hot tub, cold plunge, sauna, and lounge area. The athletic club, which looks down on the city from 120 feet above, includes the latest workout accessories and machines. There is also a children’s room, billiards room, and golf simulator. The Gachot-designed club area, completed with double-height ceilings, allows residents to recline at the wood-paneled wet bar amongst fireplaces and warm surroundings.

Residences, which range from one-bedrooms up to four-bedrooms, start at $1.4 million. The least expensive unit available at the moment is a 938-square-foot one-bedroom on the 22nd floor asking $1,490,000. The most expensive is currently a 3,416 square-foot four-bedroom, asking $13.73 million. There are also three penthouse units available, though pricing and other details have not been made available yet.

Nomad has undergone quite a transformation over the years. These days, it’s becoming quite the popular residential destination because of developments like Madison House. With Madison Square Park nearby and all of the restaurants, bars, retail shops, and destinations within walking distance, not to mention a central location, you may want to take a closer look.
