Matchy-matchy is not a theme today’s most discriminating buyers warm to. They want distinction in every aspect of their homes, which is certainly one of the reasons why The Getty in New York’s West Chelsea, a small but perfectly formed condominium designed by Peter Marino, go-to architect for Dior and Louis Vuitton, is currently breaking local records. The triplex penthouse sold earlier this year for $59m, but the remaining four apartments (gettybymarino.com; from $16.25m) have all been given their own personal twist, with a unique layout and individual take on materials. The building itself, with its draught-board metal and glass façade, is also something of a draw. Abutting the High Line, it sits in the heart of NYC’s art district (Gagosian is on the same block) and new residents in the retail space below include not one but two art galleries, Lehmann Maupin and the Hill Art Foundation.
