995 Fifth Avenue was the former Stanhope Hotel. Originally built in 1926 by famous architect Rosario Candela, this 20th century pre-war building remains true to its classic design while carrying modern influences suitable for a 21st century city lifestyle.
It was converted to a luxury apartment building in 2007 by Extell Developments, the same company behind the now famous One 57. Today the building has 26 units in total (some of which have been combined) ranging in size from 4,100 square feet to 8,400 square feet. During the conversion a team of architects, preservationist and interior designers managed to restore the building classic feel and infuse it with 21st century infrastructure and technology. Bathrooms are outfitted with fixtures by Lefroy Brookswhile kitchens are designed by Smallbone Devizes. The La Palestra health club, as well as a concierge, and a wine consultancy service within the building are all amenities kept from when the building was operating as a hotel.
Due to the fact that the building was recently converted there is very little work that needs to be done inside most units. The Stanhope is perfect for buyers that are looking for a turnkey apartment on Fifth Avenue with modern finishes and a classic touch. Its hard to match the buildings 81st and Fifth location with Central Park only steps away and the Metropolitan Museum of Art across the street.
