CHALLENGE:There is something special when you visit 1110 Park Ave.—a new luxury, boutique condo building in New York City’s Upper East Side. The 16-story building’s façade is Indiana limestone, a recognizable calling card for distinctive properties throughout New York City and elsewhere, including the World Trade Center Towers along with Oculus and Transportation Hub, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Columbia University, J. Paul Getty Center in Los Angeles, George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas and the Art Institute of Chicago, to name a few. Inside are nine spacious, opulent residences with elegant architectural details, the finest materials, and impeccable finishes appropriate for a Park Avenue home. The condominiums, which command seven- and eight-digit figures, also offer grand views of Park Avenue itself. The building, capped by a 7000-sq.-ft. penthouse, occupies the top three floors. INFLUENCE:“Every detail of the homes at 1110 Park Avenue has been carefully considered to provide the most comfortable and luxurious lifestyle possible,” said David Von Spreckelsen, Division President of Toll Brothers City Living, the urban development division of Toll Brothers. New York City-based Barry Rice, principal, Barry Rice Architects, talked about his goal for the building’s exterior, “Create a building that on one hand sits comfortably with its neighbors, but also provides a distinctive presence on the block.” SOLUTION:1110 Park Avenue’s main entrance features a pair of Ellison Bronze 3-in. thick monumental single light muntz bronze balanced doors, which includes 0.75-in. thick decorative bronze grille work with a scroll design. The grille work is inset flush with the exterior face of the door making it appear part of the door. This grille work unique is the use of vertically mounted concealed continuous bronze hinges allowing them to be operable for glass cleaning. They also have custom-designed internal latching hardware that keeps the grilles securely in place while the doors are in use. null
