Amenities and Renderings for 111 Murray

Sales have launched for 111 Murray, and the site is full of renderings…. First, a clear one of the top. An article in the New York Times says the design was inspired by Murano vases.

111 Murray lobby renderingThe amenities are something else. Below: “A sprawling lounge with 15-foot ceilings, plush seating and an oversize stone and steel fireplace overlooks a dramatic water wall and reflecting pool.”

111 Murray hammam rendering“A majestic, 75-foot lap pool is framed by teak and stone lounges while a hot tub offers other ways to enjoy water’s rejuvenating properties.” Wink, wink?

111 Murray pool rendering“Overlooking the pool [is] a fully-equipped 3,000-square-foot fitness center with separate movement studio.” No rendering of that. But you’ll need it if you become a regular at the—wait for it—patisserie! “The jewelbox patisserie with daily offerings, lounge and grand private dining room—all of which look out over an enclosed private garden—are each designed to adapt their use to different activities and events. This allows residents to move through the spaces in very individualized ways. The dining room features a professional demonstration kitchen, perfect for intimate dinner parties with a celebrity chef. And, the patisserie can transform into a pre-dinner cocktail bar for larger events.”

And here are the apartment renderings. (There will be 157 residences.) The website has details on the fixtures, if that floats your boat.

As for other credits, from the Times: “The building is a collaboration of four prominent designers. A. Eugene Kohn of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the architect; David Mann of MR Architecture & Décor is designing the 157 residences; David Rockwell is doing the interior public spaces, including the lobby and amenities; and Edmund Hollander is creating the exterior gardens.”



  1. I have trouble shaking the sense that the creative team, comprising individuals who’ve proved they possess talent and intelligence in their previous work, is expressing contempt through this design.

  2. Looks like all these amenities are meant to keep residents from ever leaving the building and enjoying the city. Seems kind of a waste to put such a building in a city that has so much to offer.
