212 Fifth Avenue

Undisputed Luxury at Restored 1912 Landmarked Building

With its distinguished brownstones, elegant town houses and majestic mansions, the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Madison Square Park has been a heart of New York sophistication and influence ever since the 1850s. And today, long after beginning life as a commercial and industrial space in 1912, the imposing 24-story building at 212 Fifth Avenue is reclaiming its rightful place among its neighbors.

Topped by a striking crenellated parapet and clad in stately limestone and terracotta, 212 Fifth has been masterfully restored by the New York–based firm Helpern Architects, which has cleverly brought the building’s uncommon proportions and architectural features to the forefront.

Expansive and loftlike, the 48 homes showcase oversize windows with vistas encompassing such iconic markers as the Flatiron Building, the MetLife Clock Tower and the Empire State Building, along with the verdant hub of Madison Square Park, the ever-changing lights of downtown Manhattan and, of course, the Big Apple’s magical sunsets. A new bastion of elegance and calm in the city that never sleeps, 212 Fifth offers luxurious residences conceived by the internationally acclaimed New York design firm Pembrooke & Ives, which has made each home into a modern celebration of space and light.

In addition to book-matched marble foyers, classic coffered ceilings and oak-clad floors set in a chevron pattern, the residences include kitchens with Calacatta-marble countertops, custom-designed cabinets and state-of-the-art appliances. The baths are at once modern and indulgent thanks to wide sycamore vanities, freestanding Lacava tubs and polished Thassos stone floors. Fluted Carrara marble walls grace the master baths.

Pembrooke & Ives has also made sure that every aspect of life within the building unfolds smoothly. With a dedicated 24-hour concierge, stylish lounge, plush screening room, sophisticated boardroom, spacious playroom for children, game room for adults, state-of-the-art gym, golf simulator, rooms for classes and spa treatments, catering kitchen, valet parking, bicycle storage and refrigeration for food deliveries, 212 Fifth offers a range of amenities designed to accommodate its residents every need.

Located in a landmarked neighborhood rich with history and cachet, 212 Fifth has an immediate and immaculate haven in Madison Square Park and in the surrounding area stylish boutiques and gourmet spots such as Gramercy Tavern, Eataly and Eleven Madison Park are just steps away. Clearly, as reenvisioned by some of today’s greatest residential innovators, 212 Fifth has found new life as a coveted address that epitomizes the allure of Manhattan.

Homes range from $4,800,000 to $68,500,000. Sotheby’s International Realty / Manhattan Brokerage. Contact Nikki Field, Mara Flash Blum, Kevin Brown and Brad Ingalls at 212-935-1212 or Info@212FifthAvenue.com
