- 1959Year Built
One of two nearly identical apartment towers on the east blockfront of Sutton Place South in the mid-50’s, Cannon Point North at 25 Sutton Place South was built in 1959 as a cooperative.
It is a pale pink brick building of 21 stories with 320 cooperative apartments with a large rear garden cantilevered over the FDR Drive. It is also known as 500 East 56th Street and 501 East 55th Street.
It is one story taller and has 43 apartments more than the white-brick Cannon Point South at 45 Sutton Place South.
The latter building is perhaps best known for a photograph of a high-floor tenant fishing from his window in the East River directly below. Needless to say, many apartments have waterviews.
Both projects were developed by Alfred Gross, who also built Glen Oaks Village in Queens, and designed by Paul Resnick and Harry Green.
