New York’s historic Wales hotel is now a luxury condo building – Robb Report
New York City is full of shiny new builds – think supertalls like 111 W. 57th Street and 432 Park Ave. – so a more historic residential tower is a welcome change of pace. Those looking for something more old school are in luck, because Robb Report has the first exclusive glimpse of the interiors of Wales, a new condominium building on the Upper East Side that dates back to the early 1900s.
The Wales was originally built around 1899 by architect Louis Korn, a New York native who led several projects in the area. Until recently it was known as the Wales Hotel. Developer Adellco enlisted Form4 Design Studio to help restore the Neo-Renaissance facade to its former glory. In total, there will only be 21 units in the 10-story building, so it’s an exclusive perspective, with a maximum of three condos per floor. There will be plenty of half-story and full-story offerings available, as well as a penthouse with a private roof terrace, outdoor kitchen and wraparound terrace.
As for the interiors, Adellco partnered with Cabinet Alberto Pinto, a renowned French interior design firm with which the developer had previously worked on other projects in New York. Accordingly, the residences and common areas will complement the striking exterior of Wales. “The Pinto relationship plays a big part in taking this wonderful style and creating this very chic, very elegant and very sophisticated interior,” says Matthew Adell, founder of Adellco.
Individual condos will have white herringbone oak floors and large windows. In the kitchen, the appliances will be from Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove, with chrome fixtures will be Kallista. The bathrooms, meanwhile, will feature a mix of light Bianca Carrara marble and dark Grigio Nicole stone, creating an interesting juxtaposition of materials.
The gym will have the same white oak floor, which will give the space a lighter and more contemporary feel than many other rubber-floored fitness centers. The lobby will have antique mirrors and a bespoke brass chandelier, in addition to custom marble finishes and moldings.
