Sinatra penthouse view is nothin’ but Blue Skies
A Flushing window manufacturer has made sure that the view from Frank Sinatra’s former penthouse is Blue Skies … nothin’ but blue skies.
Crystal Window & Door Systems’ high-end windows and terrace doors were installed as part of a gut renovation of Ol Blue Eyes’ famous Manhattan “apartment in the sky” now on the market for $7.7 million.
The Upper East Side penthouse sits 22 stories high atop the Edgewater Building at 530 East 72nd Street.
Crystal supplied a variety of large tilt-and-turn, picture, and double-hung windows and swing terrace doors to rebuild the apartment’s three levels and create eye-popping views of the East River and beyond.
Sinatra owned the apartment from 1961 until 1974. It was the site of some of New York’s best parties as well as a rehearsal space and crash pad for the superstar when he was in town.
Steve Chen, executive vice president for Crystal, said the firm provided a variety of its best aluminum windows and doors to create a “custom fenestration façade.”
Products included the Series DA-9000 dual-action tilt-and-turn window, the Series DH-5500 double-hung, and Series PW-8100 and Series CTP-2100 fixed picture windows. The project also used several Series CTT-1400 aluminum swing terrace doors to access the outdoor spaces.
In much of the penthouse façade, the windows and doors were combined vertically and horizontally to create expansive floor-to-ceiling window walls.
“This exclusive luxury project showcases Crystal’s high-end products beautifully,” remarked Chen. “Our energy efficient aluminum windows and doors can meet the most discriminating architectural design, including the extraordinary Sinatra Penthouse.”
The four bedroom, six bath duplex is listed with Jason Haber, at Rubicon Property.
