This Just In: Versace to Design NYC Clock Tower Interiors

Donatella Versace has been contracted to redesign the interiors of Manhattan's Clock Tower Building on 5th Avenue, according to the New York Observer. Once the MetLife building, the Clock Tower is being transformed into a 55-unit condo building by international holding and investment company, Africa Israel. Rotem Rosen, the company's CEO, told the Observer that the building is shaping up to be "the highest-end residential building in New York." He said, "the whole interior design of [the Clock Tower will be] Versace, from the lobby to the spa to the restaurant designed specifically by Donatella herself. Everything inside will be 100-percent Versace design." The building's restaurant club will be the world's first designed specifically by Donatella, and the rest of the building will be designed by the Versace Group.There's more to learn about this luxe megaplex, so


The units have yet to be sold (or constructed) but Africa Israel is expecting a lot of excitement from Russians, who make up a lot their client base and love Versace as well as "top celebrities." Aside from Donatella Versace herself and her daughter, he declined to comment on which celebrities had plans to live there, but he did say, "To give you an idea we connected with Versace through Guy Oseary." Guy Oseary is the CEO of Maverick Records and a talent manager, whose clients include Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, Katharine McPhee, and Alex Rodriguez.

According to Reuters, "Africa Israel paid $200 million for the Clock Tower building last year," and the "completed complex is expected to be worth about $1 billion." The penthouse alone will be over 10,700 square feet. Yowsers! Tell me, would you like your pad to be designed by Versace?
