The Centurion is regarded by many architectural observers as New York's most important new condominium, as the only ground-up Manhattan residential project from master architect I.M. Pei and Pei Partnership architects.
The Centurion is regarded by many architectural observers as New York's most important new condominium, as the only ground-up Manhattan residential
project from master architect I.M. Pei and Pei Partnership architects. Pei is best loved for his projects the Four Seasons in New York and the pyramid
at the Louvre in Paris, as well as the Bank of China tower in Hong Kong.
The key to understanding the Centurion is appreciating the prestige of its location in the heart of Midtown at 56th Street and Fifth Avenue, surrounded
by galleries, luxury merchants, world-class restaurants and hotels. The building is just a three block stroll from Central Park and steps from the most
exclusive shops on Fifth Avenue (Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Prada and Tiffany's to give a few examples), as well as the St Regis, Peninsula and Plaza hotels
and the Museum of Modern Art.
For investors, tenants are paying some of the highest rents in Manhattan for the privilege of living in this building. And as one of the few condominium
properties in Manhattan's "Golden Triangle", the Centurion offers the complete freedom, flexibility and discretion of condo ownership, welcoming pied a
terre, international and corporate owners, and allowing the most investor-friendly rental policies in the city, with month-to-month rentals permitted.
The Centurion is one of the last properties in New York to offer a 421a tax abatement, meaning that each purchaser will benefit from a full ten year of
discounted real estate taxes - an impressive incentive in this neighborhood where land and property values are the highest in the city.
The Centurion's residences feature soaring ceilings of 10 and up to 17 ft, bathrooms in honed marble and top of the line kitchens. 13 residences offer
terraces with views of the Museum of Modern Art. Owners benefit from high level security, 24 hour white glove doorman, an onsite fitness facility,
parking and storage. The Centurion's partnerships with New York's finest spas, the Townhouse Spa and the 35,000 sq ft Spa at the Peninsula Hotel by
ESPA, offer the luxury of the city's best wellness and beauty services minutes away or on call for the convenience of at-home treatments.
