Hill West collaborated with KPF at 111 Murray to design one of the most distinctly shaped, new skyscrapers of the Financial District’s skyline. This 64-story condominium tower expands as it rises toward its crown, wrapping its form in glass and culminating in a reveal that leaves the top of this building sculpturally distinct. The complex form, along with many distinct details, required the collaboration of a multitude of talented consultants, engineers and experts in their fields. The results are evident in such details as the canopy, the softly curved entrance, and the interplay of rich materials: anodized steel walls, custom hand blown glass, and travertine in the building’s lobby. Hill West is proud to be a part of the technical and design expertise that makes possible a residential experience as fine as 111 Murray.

The design of the building draws inspiration from the tailored lines found in contemporary fashion and the artful glass vases of Venice and Murano, Italy. The rounded form of the tower sets it apart across the Manhattan skyline, with floor plates subtly increasing in size above the 40th floor, creating a gently flared silhouette. The glass skin enclosure elegantly wraps the residential units resulting in magnificently framed, panoramic city and river views.
Upon entering the double height David Rockwell-designed lobby, guests will be welcomed by a 24/7 doorman, and concierge by Abigail Michaels. Adjacent to the lobby, a free-flowing series of social spaces offer residents places to relax and entertain within, including a patisserie, lounge and veranda, private dining room with fully equipped demonstration kitchen and landscaped private resident's garden, complete with a 15-foot tall water sculpture.
The building's expansive amenity spaces totaling over 20,000 square feet also includes a 75-foot lap pool, children's splash pool with interactive water jets, spa with private treatment rooms, saunas, a fitness center with movement studio, a hair salon, a teen arcade, children's playroom and a media room. A carefully crafted hammam made from slabs of stone will offer a truly authentic warming and relaxation experience steeped in the Turkish tradition.
With significant consideration for function and how people live today, floor plans and ceiling heights were designed in order to make optimal use of space and views. Designer David Mann has created inspired, urbane interiors that are truly resonating with today's luxury buyer. The custom-stained white oak floors were designed in a herringbone pattern throughout the foyers and great rooms with four-inch plank flooring throughout the additional rooms and hallways. The ceilings are exceptionally high, ranging from 10'6" to 14' 6" in premium residences. Many of the homes will enjoy direct, private elevator access, a unique feature at 111 Murray Street.
Often serving as a dramatic backdrop to the open great room, the kitchens at 111 Murray Street will feature custom Molteni cabinets with grey-stained & cerused white oak cabinetry, as well as custom matte black finished fixtures designed by David Mann in collaboration with Dornbracht. Appliances will be from Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele. Dramatic waterfall kitchen islands and backsplashes in honed Calacatta Borghini Marble will serve to enhance the sophisticated space and grand open floor plan.
The five-fixture master bathrooms located on the perimeter glass walls will boast incredible skyline views and floating tubs and will be outfitted with white marble slabs, travertine feature walls and framed marble and mirror vanities. Select residences will have dual master bathrooms. Powder rooms will feature slab floors, feature wall and vanities.
