The Nicole is a 19-story luxury boutique residential property located at West 55th Street and Ninth Avenue. The 149-unit mixed-use rental project is a total of 173,000 sf, of which 17,000 sf is designated as retail on the first and cellar floors. The structure is reinforced concrete, and the façade is brick and pre-cast with a combination of corner window wall and punched windows. The exterior lobby is limestone with patterned framed glass. The lobby design was integral to the overall project aesthetic and required exacting tolerances. The area includes a fireplace framed in black granite, a bubbling cistern integrated with the lobby floor, Travertine-clad walls and floor, Macassar Ebony wood paneling, and Black Onyx granite. Rounding out the project is a landscaped garden terrace, tenant lounge and fitness center.
