The lower Park Avenue South location, just north of Union Square and west of Gramercy Park, has become one of New York City’s most sought after residential neighborhoods. With views along Park Avenue South towards the east and southern views along 19th Street, the unit layouts for the building take advantage of this important corner location. All apartments have their major living spaces oriented towards these views. Additionally, several of the upper floors have unobstructed views to the north and west.

Zoning requirements limited the street wall height to 150 feet, requiring a facade setback that advantageously allows for the creation of private terraces for the 14th floor units. The 17th floor penthouse, occupying the entire floor, has exclusive access to the building roof where a private terrace and swimming pool has been provided.

The exterior of the building is designed to compliment the existing neighborhood context. The facade is composed of limestone clad, pre-cast concrete panels that create large scale, two-story openings in-filled with windows and metal panel floor spandrels. The articulation of column and spandrel panels recalls the detailing and materials of adjacent neighboring buildings.

Additional residential amenities provided for owners include both a spa and exercise room, along with a group function room and library with access to an outdoor terrace.
