If location and iconic design both feature highly on your list of apartment priorities, 470 Park Avenue is likely to impress you. Designed by Schwarz & Gross – the architecture firm responsible for the definitive look of much of Park Avenues apartments – and erected in 1913, this impressive co-operative is situated on the North East corner of 58th and Park.
Stepping out of the building’s elegant canopied entrance and heading west for just a block brings you to the galleries and boutiques of Madison Avenue. A block further and you’ll find shoppers’ paradise Fifth Avenue and the south entrance to Central Park. Only a short walk from 470 Park Avenue, the proximity of the park makes the building perfect for pet owners, fitness fanatics and for anyone who ever feels the urge to take a break from city life for a couple of hours.
The building itself is 13 floors in height and consists of 58 apartments. It was converted into a co-operative back in 1954 and features the sort of high ceilings and airy spaces that became trademarks of the Schwarz & Gross firm. These characteristics give the apartments in 470 Park Avenue a light, open and spacious feel not often associated with living in Manhattan.
The handsome building, with its attractive brownstone frontage and its fire escape tastefully concealed on its 58th Street side, also boasts a full time doorman and ample basement storage for residents to take full advantage of.
Practical and stylish, apartments in 470 Park Avenue don’t usually stay on the market for long as they go for some of the least expensive price per foot on Park. They also require board approval and it is highly recommend prospective purchasers use a buyer’s broker when applying for an apartment.
