Peter Marino’s Architectural Sculpture

The Getty at 239 Tenth Avenue redefines New York City development. A unique collaboration with architect Peter Marino, The Getty is a work of art in and of itself, nestled along Chelsea’s High Line, in the epicenter of the New York City’s art scene. The Getty features five, full floor bespoke residences, each with its own unique layout and one-of-a-kind finishes, and is home to the three-story Lehman Maupin art gallery and the two-story Hill Art Foundation.

As fashion’s most celebrated architect, Peter Marino has designed dozens of luxury fashion stores including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Fendi, and Bulgari, and is renowned for his inventive use of light, space, and contemporary artwork. Marino's familiarity with utmost luxury is evident in The Getty, too; Behind the building's geometric glass façade is a rich interior, where each residence has a unique look. Each of the five, full floor bespoke residences are outfitted with layers of texture and custom finishes by Marino, featuring marble, stone, and wood from over 80 countries.

“The purchaser is drawn into the creative process by being able to select a one-of-a-kind residence. The buyer becomes the curator."

One-of-a-kind bespoke residences, where each home features a unique layout, each complete with its own distinct set of stones and finishes.

SHVO purchased the Getty Gas Station at the corner of 10th Avenue and 24th Street in 2013, with the vision of developing West Chelsea’s premier residential building. Inspired by the property’s location in the heart of New York City’s art district, Mr. Shvo’s vision for the building was to create one-of-a-kind bespoke residences, where each home features a unique layout, each complete with its own distinct set of stones and finishes, so as to curate a development of ultra-luxury homes, each home attracting a different buyer.

To execute this distinct vision, Mr. Shvo tasked long-time friend – Star Architect Peter Marino, the world's most sought-after architect of luxury fashion stores, who designs distinctive outposts in a class of their own for Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Bulgari, among others. Through a two-year collaboration between the pair, which later also included Michelin Star Chef Daniel Boulud, brought onboard to assist in the design of the kitchens, the Getty building was born.

After acquiring the property, Mr. Shvo transformed the Getty Gas Station into “Sheep Station” – a public art exhibition showcasing 25 of the iconic epoxy stone and bronze Moutons by renowned artist François-Xavier Lalanne, set in a surrealist landscape of rolling lawn and a white picket fence amidst the existing industrial gas station structure. The Sheep Station exhibition became an immediate media sensation. It was named one of New York City’s top art show of 2013 by Blouin Art Info and was featured in over 100 publications and broadcast worldwide.

Shvo’s sales at the Getty have shattered New York City’s downtown records, both in absolute sale prices and price per square foot, with a record sale of the Penthouse for $59 million. The Gallery Space at the building sold to Lehman Maupin for $27 million – an all-time high for any gallery space in Chelsea, and the sale of the 3rd and 4th floor to Blackstone’s Tom Hill for his private art foundation further elevated the building’s roster of purchasers.

Together in partnership with Victor Group, SHVO oversaw Lend Lease in the complex construction at the Getty, which spanned over three years and was completed in the 4th Quarter of 2018. SHVO’s keen attention to details has produced what many consider to be New York City’s most luxurious new development.

The Littlest High Rise in New York

Peter Marino and Michael Shvo are working together on The Getty, a 12-story building going up in the center of the art gallery district in New York’s West Chelsea neighborhood. To say that there isn’t another project like it in the city is an understatement. To say that it is unique in the world is not overstatement.

“He’s not a regular developer type,” says Marino of Shvo. “He’s more of a thinker. He has a million new ideas.”

“I said to people it sounded so great. The developer said each apartment will be different. It sounds so Peter Marino.”
