The full-floor 4,179 SF Penthouse at the former historic Wales Hotel came to market is spectacular, with five bedrooms, five full baths, and two striking powder rooms.

You step into NYC history with serious Parisian flair as you enter the gorgeous lobby of this just-launched hotel-to-condo conversion. The lobby features coffered ceilings, a custom walnut and marble concierge desk, and antique mirrored walls. Only 15 years ago, the hotel was the hotspot for celebrities to primp prior to their grand arrivals at the Met Ball.

“Finding a historically significant conversion like The Wales on such a distinctive Carnegie Hill corner is very unusual because of the rarity of new building opportunities in the Landmark District,” says Matthew Adell, owner at Adellco (Developer of The Wales). “Most establishments endure. Carnegie Hill is a classic neighborhood with very limited turnover and we were very fortunate to have the ability to bring this storied building into a new era. The Penthouse, in particular, is brand new construction above the historic structure. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a private home with a massive private wraparound terrace spanning 3,114 SF with views of Central Park.”
