This month we are featuring 212 Fifth Avenue as the monthly gem, and for good reason. Our team toured the beautiful Penthouse property that was as exquisite as its Madison Square Park location. Fun fact: representing NYC’s 212 area code, the developer was attracted to the building’s matching address as one of its many virtues.
As a neo-Gothic sky-scraper, this iconic tower has been recently converted to 48 residences boasting open floor plans, tall ceilings and oversized windows (most of which showcase mention stellar park and city views). Previously built as a manufacturing building, the 2-3 units per floor all get outstanding light that bounces off its solid oak and marble floors from the two to three exposures that every unit gets.
The amenities are exceptional for a boutique building, featuring a 24-hour doorman, concierge, cold storage, fitness center (with yoga studio and treatment room, playroom, game room, residents’ lounge, catering kitchen, screening room and valet parking. Although the building’s location provides it easy access to many subways, residents may just want to walk out into the park without leaving home turf.
