Ritz-Carlton Condo Has Perfect Views of City’s Architectural Contrasts

See for yourself at an open house this weekend.

This $1.2 million two-bedroom unit at the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton — the high-rise adjacent to the hotel — has everything one would expect from a top-of-the-line luxury condo: Sub-zero/Miele/Viking/Bain/California/Brazilian and plenty of marble. Living at the Residences also comes with a slew of amenities, such as:

24/7 concierge service
valet parking w/on-site garage
chauffeur-driven town car
state of the art fitness center w/60 ft. lap pool & yoga studio
gated landscaped garden with fountain
access to resident’s lounge w/media room
outdoor terrace & catering pantry

Plus, the Residences’ residents (ahem) have access to any amenity that guests enjoy at the hotel.

But none of this is as “ecstatic,” as the listing notes, as the northern views from the 1,655-square-foot unit’s floor-to-ceiling windows (which have automated shades). The unit is situated between City Hall, in all its Second Empire grandeur, and a clutch of glass-fronted buildings that are a complete contrast. The views are…well, just see for yourself.
