Overview

When it was erected by Sigmund Sommer in 1974, the Sovereign at 425 East 58th Street startled the Sutton Place community with its enormous bulk that stretches along the south side between First Avenue and Sutton Place of the Manhattan approach to the Ed Koch Queeensboro Bridge, the city's most picturesque. 

Its stepped-plan design, which would several years later be used at Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue at 56th Street, created many corner windows and because it was 48 stories high the building afforded most of its residents spectacular views of midtown, the bridge, the United Nations and the East River. 

It originally had 376 rental apartments and now has 360 cooperative apartments. 

The Sovereign is one of the Manhattan’s largest "luxury" towers and its many major views remain fantastic. 

It was designed by Emery Roth & Sons. 

It gained considerable attention for housing for several years the city's most expensive restaurant, The Palace, on its north side.
