Just a year after this building was constructed, it received a Gold Medal from The American Institute of Architects. 907 Fifth Avenue was built in 1915 by J.E.R. Carpenter, who also designed 640 Park.
Located in Lennox Hill, 907 5th Avenue faces the whimsical part of Central Park, with the sailboat pond and Alice in Wonderland statue only steps away. Originally, this twelve-story limestone Italian-Renaissance-palazzo-style building contained two large 12-room simplex and duplex apartments per floor, but overtime they were subdivided and now there are 48 units. The apartments are still spacious with high ceilings and elegant finishes. The building’s facade was touched up in 1998 but still has a simple yet elegant feel that was typical of Carpenters minimalistic style. There is a full time doorman, a roof deck, a fitness room, a laundry room and storage space within the building.
In 1955, this building became a co-op and as a result of this interested buyers have to go through a sometimes challenging application process to purchase a unit in the building. It is highly recommended buyers seek the help of a talented realtor that is familiar with this board’s application process.
