It was once said, “Nothing unimportant ever happens at The Plaza.” One of America’s most celebrated hotels, The Plaza opened its doors on October 1, 1907, amid a flurry of impressive reports describing it as the greatest hotel in the world. Located at Fifth Avenue and Central Park South, this luxury hotel was constructed in the most fashionable residential section of New York City.
The Plaza was the dream of financier Bernhard Beinecke, hotelier Fred Sterry, and Harry S. Black, President of the Fuller Construction Company. They purchased a 15-year-old hotel of the same name on the site. The three men set out to replace it with what is surely one of the most elegant hotels in the world. Construction of the 19-story building (a skyscraper back then) took two years at a cost of $12 million – an unprecedented sum in those days.
The epitome of New York luxury, this Penthouse at the world renowned Plaza Hotel and Residences, reimagined by one of the world’s foremost designers, is the only triplex residence at The Plaza, positioned in the northeast corner with spectacular views of Central Park and Fifth Avenue. Enter the palatial property on the 20th floor into a stunning 2,300 square foot entertainment space, which includes a formal dining area and home office overlooking Central Park. The Eastern wing of the residence overlooks Fifth Avenue, and includes a large eat-in kitchen with wine cellar and informal dining and media room.

With access via the main stair or private elevator, the suite has two sumptuous bathrooms, two vast walk-in closets, a laundry room and wet bar. This floor is the only residence in The Plaza that has all four exposures, filling the space with incredible natural light throughout the day.The 19th floor features three bedrooms, all en-suite- facing Central park.
