With its close proximity to Grand Central Station, excessive pedestrian traffic presented a major concern. In order to accommodate this, the construction company had to position the tower crane within a site setback area, and position all hoists within the footprint of the building.The building's amenities include two retails spaces and a health club.The apartment finishes include wood floors, granite countertops, and marble bathrooms with marble banjo tops.The building has a brick facade with the first four floors having Indiana Limestone with Granite trim.A large percentage to the north and south elevations comprise window units that span nearly floor to floor, with aluminum slab covers giving it a curtain wall appearance.



Midtown is the epicenter of business in New York City, the beating heart of everyday professional life in Manhattan, the "Big Apple" everyone's talking about.  In many ways, it's a microcosm of the city - its own ecosystem of interconnected businesses and neighborhoods. While it's most commonly associated with the modern marvel that is Times Square, there's more to Midtown than jam-packed sidewalks, throttling skyscrapers, and honking taxis.

This is the home of cool districts like Koreatown and Rose Hill, the patron of fine cultural institutions like the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Scandanavian House, PierPont Morgan Library, and the Japan Society. Some of the best restaurants in the world hail from Midtown, like Thomas Keller's Per Se, Takayama's Masa, and Eric Ripert's Le Bernardin. Famed venues like the Ziegfeld Theatre movie palace, Carnegie Hall, and Radio City Music Hall never fail to charm. And we haven't even gotten to the shopping on 5th Avenue or the "Hamilton" craze on Broadway taking the world by storm. So you see, Midtown isn't all work and no play, but it does excel at work when you get down to it.

Midtown office space drives the commercial market in New York City. It isn't exactly cheap, coming at an average of $73/sqft, but its unbeatable public transit options and well-laid infrastructure still make it top dog for big businesses in need of office space for rent. As for the neighbors, take your pick. It's the media and advertising and financial capital of the world.

Nearby Districts Include: The Garment District, the Upper West Side, and the Upper East Side
