Madison Square Park Tower is changing Manhattan’s skyline. The 65-story glass skyscraper is the tallest in its Flatiron District neighborhood, and because of various zoning laws surrounding it, its fantastic views will never be obstructed. While the building won’t be fully completed until 2018, 70% of the units have already sold, according to property developer Bruce Eichner.

Business Insider recently visited the 56th-floor apartment, which boasts a price tag of $20 million and 360-degree views of the city. Ahead, get the full tour.


The tower sits at 45 East 22nd Street, at the base of New York’s iconic Madison Square Park. While it is still unfinished, residents can begin moving in later this fall. The building’s amenities will include a fitness center, golf simulator, basketball court, children’s playroom, library, billiards, cards room, and a terrace with an outdoor grill.

Residents can accommodate large dinner parties in their homes, but if that’s not big enough, they can also utilize one of the building’s two entertaining spaces.

But if you’d rather shower, there’s a large rain shower head on the other side. Glass will be added to this one before people move in.

The secondary bathrooms are almost just as nice.

LG washers and dryers can be found in the laundry room, located near the kitchen.

“The coolest thing in here is the ability to have a 360-degree view. Where in New York can you look over the borough of Brooklyn and see the Atlantic Ocean, or go out and look to the east and see the planes land at LaGuardia Airport?” Eichner said.

Along with the incredible views, Eichner was also proud of the work put into the front door, which he noted is very much like one you might find at a home in Los Angeles.
