Top 10 Midtown East Condo Buildings

Since the end of World War II, Midtown East has persisted as a major office district. However, throughout the years, the centrally-located neighborhood has also consistently pushed the envelope in condo prestige, opting for refined quality rather than sheer quantity.

#1 - 432 Park Avenue

Condo in Midtown East

When it thrust into the Midtown skyline in 2015, 432 Park Avenue became an undeniable symbol of ultra-luxurious living, to supporters as well as detractors of opulent lifestyles and untold riches. Today, the 1,397-foot tower is no longer the tallest even on the street where it stands, yet the now-globally-famous address still reigns supreme in scale and luxury alike over any contender in Midtown East.

#2 - The Towers of the Waldorf Astoria, 100 East 50th Street

Condo in Midtown East

High-class connotations of the Waldorf Astoria name long predate the 1931 completion of the Park Avenue skyscraper, let alone the 2019 conversion of the upper floors into condominiums of the Towers moniker. Though the secret underground train that once connected directly to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s suite is no longer in service, residents retain access to the legendary building’s landmark interiors and world-renowned services.


#3 - One Beacon Court, 151 East 58th Street

Condo in Midtown East

The 806-foot-tall One Beacon Court ranked among the city’s tallest buildings, apartment or otherwise, upon its 2004 completion. Years later, the mixed-use complex remains among East Midtown’s premier addresses thanks to its mid-block porte cochere, across-the-street adjacency to Bloomingdale’s, in-building shopping and subway access, and Central Park views from the upper floors.

#4 - Trump Tower, 721 Fifth Avenue

Condo in Midtown East

Whether or not you agree with current Presidential politics, the persistent cachet of one of the world’s most famous addresses is undeniable. A prime location at Fifth Avenue and East 56th Street, crisp modern design by architect Der Scutt of Swanke Hayden Connell, and proximity to Central Park will ensure enduring value for the black-glass building long after Mr. Trump leaves the White House.

#5 - Olympic Tower, 641 Fifth Avenue

Condo in Midtown East

In 1975, magnate Aristotle Onassis erected the 51-story Olympic Tower across from St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Rockefeller Center, attracting high society elites and ushering a new era in New York’s luxury living. The somber skyscraper helped crystalize high-rise modernism into a lifestyle statement that persists in spiritual descendants from Trump Tower to 432 Park Avenue.

#8 - One Hundred East Fifty Third Street, 100 East 53rd Street

Condo in Midtown East

When designing the slender tower at 100 East 53rd Street, renowned architect Sir Norman Foster drew inspiration from an all-star lineup of nearby modernist landmarks, which include the Seagram Building, Lever House, Citicorp Center, and Philip Johnson’s Lipstick Building. As the result, sumptuous modernist minimalism permeates the building at the exterior and interior alike, and comes to its ultimate heights at the spacious, zen-like indoor pool lined with thickets of bamboo.
