Often referred to as renown architect Rosario Candela’s greatest creation, 834 Fifth Avenue has a small history of its own, from multimillion dollar deals to family legacies. Laurence Rockefeller spent a lifetime of fifty years living in this building, and when his penthouse came onto the market it broke the New York City record, selling for $44 million to Rupert Murdoch – the most paid for a co-op apartment at that time.
Built in 1931, this building is influenced by art deco design, a classic yet vibrant movement in art history that mixed elegance with glamor and functionality with modernity. Twenty five apartments cover the 16 stories of this limestone building, located in Lennox Hill. Each apartment is spacious with high ceilings of at least 11 feet accompanied by vast windows, elegant staircases, galleries and grand libraries. Select apartments feature fireplaces and terraces. The apartment building itself has a 24-hour doorman and elevator attendant; pets are allowed in this co-op and with both Central Park just across the street as well as a courtyard garden within the building itself, it makes it an ideal place for living in the city with furry friends.
This building is one of the most sought-after Fifth Avenue apartment buildings. It is a co-op and as a result of this buyers have to get accepted by the buildings board to purchase a unit. It is highly recommended for buyers to work with a skilled realtor that can help them through the application process.
