A newly unveiled Manhattan triplex penthouse has a private rooftop view that looks straight at the Empire State Building.
, British architect Sir David Chipperfield’s first residential project in New York City, has put the first of two penthouses on the market for $16.3 million, developer HFZ Capital Group announced Tuesday. This triplex apartment spans more than 4,000 square feet on the southern half of the building.

The 34-story building on West 40th Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues, stands parallel to the Empire State Building, and this particular top-floor unit has both a rooftop and open loggia that make the iconic New York City skyscraper their focal point.
The penthouse is one of 57 residences, half of which have sold since sales launched at the end of 2015, according to the developer. This unit is by far the most expensive in the building, where prices ranged from $1.9 million for a lower floor one-bedroom to a 30th-level four-bedroom for $9.4 million. The bottom 15 floors of the building will house a hotel that has yet to be announced, which will offer hotel services to residents of the condo portion.

The new listing, dubbed Penthouse B, has three bedrooms, three bathrooms plus two powder rooms. The rooftop terrace, which has an adjoining solarium and wet bar, and double-height loggia add another 1,313 square feet in outdoor space. There’s also a private interior elevator, service entrance and heated floors, according to the developers.
The second penthouse, which has yet to be unveiled, will have northern views over Bryant Park.
Mr. Chipperfield’s most well-known buildings include half a dozen museums around the world, including the Neues Museum in Berlin, the Saint Louis Art Museum, and the Hepworth Wakefield gallery in Wakefield, England. He worked on The Bryant alongside New York-based architecture and interior design firm Stonehill & Taylor Architects.
