    It looks to me like it was set up for the option of 3 to 6 people to stay there, possibly as an illegal b&b investment, but it looks like you could convert the extra half bath into a proper kitchen.

    I imagine the kitchens in these buildings are an after-thought because they really aren't expected to be used. The nearby Olympic Tower was, I believe, the first luxury tower with tiny kitchens and no proper place to eat: people buying into the building were to use it more like a hotel. They were not people who cooked or were interested in dining at home.

    I thought it was a really odd place to put that extra bathroom, and also wondered what you'd really need it for.

    At least it's possible to close off that very strange kitchen. Definitely convert the bathroom and change the "kitchen" into a hidden, well equipped bar, to be revealed when you want to impress your guests (or as the need arises ).

    That looks like a Mies chair in the corner of the living area.

    Is that pole/column structurally necessary? It detracts from those wonderful windows.

    Both other bathrooms are entered from a bedroom (not good when you have guests).

    Oops, I didn't notice the door to the main bedroom, only the door to the bathroom at the end of what I thought was the hall (in which case, entering the bedroom would've been a bit difficult) .

    Which makes the floor plan even more screwy. Second bath enter from hall, half bath becomes kitchen.

    It's going to be a hotel. I think it's being designed by the same firm who did the new Rockefeller Hotel a few doors down too (which.
