The Return of Golden Age Design
The most-coveted design elements in contemporary Manhattan real estate? Details that harken back to eras past. The Centrale, Midtown's newest luxury condo designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli, is dressed up in art-deco touches, from the chevron-patterned terra-cotta on its exterior to cove lighting in the lobby. And while residents will certainly enjoy the modern convenience of the building’s elegantly outfitted Champalimaud-designed interiors, “it’s these little touches that make the building interesting,” says Art Hooper, president of Ceruzzi Properties, the developer behind the 71-story Midtown tower.
