It was just weeks ago that The Bryant, a new building along the southern edge of Bryant Park, celebrated its topping out. YIMBY recently went all the way up to the penthouse terraces to check out the view.

The Bryant, located at 16 West 40th Street, is a hybrid: the base contains 230 hotel rooms and, starting on the 16th floor, there will be 57 condominium units. Joining their lobbies on the ground floor will be a restaurant. HFZ Capital Group is the developer.

The building, clad in terrazzo, rises 33 stories to 402 feet and is British architect Sir David Chipperfield’s first residential project in New York City. There are Juliet balconies on the north-facing rooms and some of the south-facing ones. The sixth-floor lounge, accessible to both hotel guests and residents, comes from NoMad-based Stonehill & Taylor Architects.

The residential units include one-bedrooms starting at 1,067 square feet, two-bedrooms from 1,391 square feet, and three-bedrooms from 2,068 square feet. There are also four-bedrooms and penthouses. Details on the triplex penthouse have yet to be released.

The view is impressive, to say the least. One can see the Empire State Building, from the top nearly to the bottom. Other highlights include views of One World Trade Center, Hudson Yards, the corner of Macy’s, the Statue of Liberty, the Bank of America Tower, and, of course, Bryant Park and the New York Public Library.

The Bryant also gives a unique view of less well-known structures including the Bryant Park Hotel, formerly the American Radiator Building, and 24 West 40th Street.

  1. Straight looking to various views that hide 33-story, I extremely like towers in a meeting tall.

    How can you saw that Raymond Hood’s American Radiator Building is a lesser known building. When this new building the Bryant is long gone the American Radiator Building still stand tall in opinion. Since you can easily dismiss Raymond Hood I wonder if you even know who he is and what buildings he designed? From the tone of your article I guess you don’t. Pity
