With the opening of its 37th Floor Rental Gallery, prospective residents of New York by Gehry are invited to tour 18 model units showcasing Gehry-designed interiors that take rental apartment living to elegant new heights. Rising to 870 feet, Frank Gehrys first skyscraper, the 76-story New York by Gehry, with its stainless steel cladding shaped to look like draped fabric, is now the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, and an inspired addition to the Lower Manhattan skyline.

Architecturally, Gehry’s design carries the drama of the exterior curtain wall movement into residents’ private spaces, the buildings folds result in some 200 unique apartment layouts from which to choose. Where the façade undulates outward, large free-form bay windows that change location from floor to floor make the most of the building’s unique site, allowing for unobstructed panoramic views in every direction.

This building pays homage to New York City,” said Frank Gehry,“I wanted to create something with humanity to it, in the tradition of other NYC buildings, celebrating both the vibrancy of life here and the quiet moments of contemplation within it. For me, the design has always been focused on creating a high quality of life for the people who will be living inside the building. The bay windows give all of the units wonderful light and the feeling of‘stepping into space’-of being embraced by New York energy and vitality. Designing the interiors gave me a real connection to the people who will be making their homes here. I hope they like it.
