Neighborhood

One of the most storied neighborhoods in New York, Hell’s Kitchen is also one of its most desirable. Its journey from gritty to glamorous has resulted in great restaurants, fabulous nightspots and stylish boutiques. The breadth of its bounty is unrivaled: the theater of the streets and the footlights of Broadway’s finest shows; the pulse of Times Square and the splendid beauty of park-lined walks along the Hudson River—all within walking distance. The development of Hudson Yards, along with the extension of the No. 7 subway line, elevates the level of convenience and access to this outstanding neighborhood.

The Art & Design Behind 535W43

It takes some serious experience, creativity, and skill to dream up a residential apartment building that’s artfully designed on the inside and out, but the 535W43 apartments have managed just that.

A Hell’s Kitchen Stunner (New York Lifestyles Magazine)

The two 14-story towers at 535 West 43rd Street are poised to bring a new crop of ultraluxe rentals to the Hell’s Kitchen real estate market. Designed by celebrated architecture firm CetraRuddy, the residences range in size from studios to two bedrooms, all with light-flooded open-concept kitchen and living space, oversized windows that frame views of the city skyline, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including in-unit washers and dryers.

5 Enviable Residential Buildings in New York (Interior Design)

When developing their vision for the 535W43 apartments in Hell’s Kitchen, John Centra and Nancy Ruddy of CetraRuddy Architecture imagined more than just a home base for residents: They wanted to create a community. The Interior Design Hall of Famers made the focal point of the building a HMWhite-landscaped central courtyard where residents can meet and catch up with neighbors while enjoying respite from city life. Additional communal spaces include the double-height lobby and lounge furnished with inviting chartreuse chairs, as well as the corridor connecting the two 14-story buildings, which houses a fitness center, kitchen, dining room, and game room.

Athleisure at 535W43

Blueprint 535W43 (Luxe)

The two rooftop gardens atop each of the dual towers of 535W43 offer residents a verdant perch above Hell’s Kitchen for taking in panoramic views of the Hudson River and the Midtown Manhattan skyline. One of the two rooftop terraces is designated for lounging and relaxation, while the other is outfitted with four individual outdoor kitchens and barbeques along with dining areas for “alfresco” entertaining. The terraces, as well as the two-story garden courtyard connecting the towers, were designed by award-winning landscape architects at HMWhite, who appointed the green spaces with a selection of Bowhall Red Maples and American Hornbeam trees. Each of the 280 rental apartments at 535W43 are themselves bathed in ample natural light that streams in from oversized casement windows and shines against the Swedish wood flooring and glistening Caesarstone countertops. As Architect Nancy Ruddy explains: “We created a place where residents can come in off the gritty streets of Hell’s Kitchen and enter an inspiring environment.”

Pizza of Hell’s Kitchen

Pizza is as quintessentially “New York” as the Empire State Building and Times Square. While the dish may have originated in Naples, New Yorkers claim it as their own: And they certainly have opinions on the best crusts, toppings, and pizzerias in the city.  While the perfect pie may seem mythical, you needn’t travel far
