Test-Driving Mercedes House: Inside Two Tree’s Sporty West Side Rental

  • Just what makes the Mercedes House so popular? It’s not German engineering, but it sure looks like it. Take our tour and see for yourself what’s inside Two Tree’s latest sapling.

  • Mercedes House may seem out of the way over on the West Side, but units have proven as popular as the building's namesake.

  • The developers credit the unique design with driving interest in the project, which creates numerous views and tucked-away common spaces.

  • The Mercedes dealership on the ground floor gives the building, which climbs up toward 10th Street, its name.

  • One of the marquee products of the design is the numerous terraces it creates.

  • Inside, high design—are those Phillippe Starck chairs?

  • How about those views from West End Avenue?

  • River views from almost every room, thanks to that zig-zagging design.

  • Cook as you watch the boats go by.

  • Top of the line appliances, natch.

  • A simple yet sophisticated bathroom—like the finest German engineering.

  • Among the building's amenities is a lounge near the top.

  • Take a dip inside.

  • Or outside, if it's nice enough.
