Ian Schrager is someone who’s always understood the word “exclusive”. In the 1970s, he co-founded Manhattan nightclub Studio 54, where dancefloor regulars included David Bowie and Salvador Dalí; more recently, he’s become known as a (if not the) pioneer of the boutique hotel. His latest venture, 160 Leroy(www.160leroy.com;from $2.5m to $25m; penthouse, $80m), in Manhattan’s West Village, demonstrates his customary appreciation of the rare and covetable. To join a raft of world‑class names redefining the New York waterfront, Schrager commissioned Pritzker Prize-winning architects Herzog & de Meuron to design 49 one-of-a-kind apartments. What’s possibly most remarkable about this sensuously curved tour de force, however, is the views over the Hudson, the Freedom Tower and the city skyline.
