Rafael Viñoly-designed The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad—so named for its location in the neighborhood north of Madison Square Park—topped out and on target for official opening in late 2021

New York, New York (October 8, 2020) — Christie’s International Real Estate is honored to announce that the company’s New York City brokerage, through Erin Boisson Aries and her team, has been named as the exclusive agents of 16 extraordinary private penthouse residences at The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad. The announcement comes as the 500-foot building achieves the construction milestone of “topping out” – the moment the last structural beam is put in place, signifying that the project is on target for completion.

Ms. Aries said: “I am thrilled to represent the developer in the marketing of their exceptional and timely project, and I look forward to welcoming 16 new penthouse owners to The Ritz-Carlton family.  FLAG Luxury Group brings to New York City a track record of delivering record-setting hospitality projects to market and we are honored to have been selected as the exclusive global agent for The Ritz-Carlton Residences, New York, NoMad.  There could be no better union than the Christie's International Real Estate brand and marketing approach with The Ritz-Carlton and their singularity in luxury living and impeccable service.” 

Dan Conn, CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate, added: “The announcement that our brand will be leveraged to sell The Ritz-Carlton Residences, New York, NoMad penthouses at this all-important topping out ceremony is significant as the project moves forward. The Christie’s art market experience over the last several months has demonstrated that despite a pandemic, the market for masterpieces remains very strong. At the cutting edge, where old New York meets the new, the penthouses at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, New York, NoMad are a collection of masterpieces and a perfect product for the times.”

The 45-story building’s top four floors have been reserved for 16 one- and two-bedroom penthouse residences that offer rare show-stopping views of southern Manhattan, straight down to One World Trade Center and New York Harbor, as well as views to the eastern and western horizons, and The Empire State Building and cityscape to the north.  Gracious floorplans designed by Rafael Viñoly will feature the renowned service and amenities of The Ritz-Carlton brand, as well as a rooftop bar, two restaurants, and in-residence dining by Michelin Star Chef José Andrés.

Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, President of FLAG Luxury Group said at the topping out ceremony  “It is an interesting time in the world, and here in the city, to say the least; but, standing on this site, in this structure, is a testament to the resilience we all have in working together. NoMad is a neighborhood of convergence and change, and we are thrilled to be bringing the historical Ritz-Carlton brand a new flagship to this incredibly vibrant and unique neighborhood of Manhattan.”

Ms. Aries and her team are industry leaders in the marketing and sales of architecturally significant new development and luxury real estate across the city.  The team represented some of the more significant penthouse sales of the past few years, including sales at 15 Central Park West along Billionaire's Row and 443 Greenwich in TriBeCa. A regular standout on national and New York City top broker rankings, Ms. Aries advises the auction house's most important clients on their global real estate holdings and works frequently with buyers, sellers, investors and their representatives from around the world.

NoMad is an historic neighborhood long known for its architecture and Madison Square Park, which has been a treasured public seven-acre open space since 1686, and is now known for its 24/7 hospitality offerings, flower district, art installations and cultural events. More recently, the area has become a hub for creative and technology firms in New York City with "Silicon Alley" flanking the southern end.  The neighborhood has become one of the most sought-after areas in the city, attracting the likes of Rupert Murdoch and Jeff Bezos, both of whom call the immediate neighborhood home when in town.
