Halcyon was conceived as a sophisticated, serene Manhattan condominium residence with simple sculptural forms, rich finishes, and soft, muted palettes.
On its warm, Indiana Limestone base sits an elegant structure of steel and glass inviting in an abundance of natural light and showcasing striking New York City views.
Featuring two upper floors of thoughtfully-designed, spa-inspired amenities, Halcyon is an oasis of serenity in a city full of life.
S. Russell Groves and his team are widely acclaimed for combining a fresh modern aesthetic with sophisticated materials and luxurious finishes.
The firm's collective knowledge transcends the conventional boundaries of design and construction; close interaction with engineers, artisans and craftspeople generates both innovative methods and exceptional results.
The architecture of the lobby, an almost perfect cube, is punctuated by dynamic forms; the muscular stair, the sinuous chandelier and the organic wall sculpture. It’s a captivating space that is beautifully decorated with travertine floors, stained bleached walnut paneling and bronze trim. The result is a lobby that is welcoming, uplifting and elegant, according to Groves.
Ascend the handsome staircase from the lobby and slip into the serene environs of the Library and Courtyard. Warm oak floors, walls of rich wooden bookshelves and earthy, natural furnishings make this Library feel comfortably luxurious. Also on the second floor is a Children's Playroom, an ideal space for art projects or story time.
A loft-like Sky Lounge is a sweep of open space neatly arranged to accommodate a seated dinner for ten, or a cocktail party for 50. At the heart of the space is a convivial, comfortable seating area with an entertainment center.
With double-height floor to ceiling windows and a 21st floor elevation, the Movement Studio is an extraordinary multi-purpose space for morning yoga, spin classes, Pilates, stretching, meditation or just taking in the spectacular views.
Incredibly indulgent, the spa areas really appeal to the senses --- sight, sound and touch. The water-themed spa features a 50-foot heated Pool and indoor sun deck, a cedar-lined dry sauna, and the unique Aqua Spa, a lavish space with tiered steps of heated marble reminiscent of a Turkish hammam.
Optimize time spent on cardiovascular and strength training --- on your own or with your trainer --- with a Fitness Center containing the latest equipment including free weights, weight machines, and treadmills. A juice bar and private massage room enhance your fitness experience before, during or after your workout.
For the residences at Halcyon, Groves brings together the best of contemporary design, comfort and style to produce sophisticated, elegant environments infused with warmth and ease.
By day, residences are washed with natural light. By night, they are highlighted by the shimmering glow ofthe Manhattan skyline.
The smartly-designed kitchens by Poliform are beautiful and efficient, whether you are making a morning cup of coffee or an elaborate family meal. Warm, neutral hues, Calacatta ligano marble, and handsome laquered cabinetry combine for a simple, elegant effect.
High atop Halcyon sit two rarefied penthouses that will captivate residents with sweeping views of the East River and Manhattan skyline including the Empire State Building and The Chrysler Building. These chic, contemporary townhouses in the sky include expansive gathering rooms for entertaining, spacious private terraces, and wood burning fireplaces. Groves elaborates, the details and appointments --- the sculptural balustrade, the sensuous marble hearth --- are luxurious enough to beckon, yet quiet enough to let the skyline shine.
Halcyon sits in a charming neighborhood enclave adjacent to Beekman Place and Sutton Place.
Halcyon joins a cityscape boasting romantic town houses with dormered windows, brick row houses, elegant Pre-War co-ops, and sleek modern skyscrapers.
The area's most famous architectural residents include two historically important gems: the stunning Art-Deco Chrysler Building and the campus of United Nations Headquarters, which lends the area an air of cosmopolitan ambiance.
