Top 10 Sutton Place/Beekman Place Apartment Buildings

The Top 10 New York City condo apartment buildings in the United Nations, and Sutton and Beekman Places neighborhoods are off the beaten path from Midtown but they have always attracted a steady and loyal clientele who enjoy waterfront views without sacrificing proximity to the restaurants and attractions of Midtown.  The Trump World Tower became the city’s tallest apartment building although it incurred the wrath of many residents for rising above the Secretariat Building of the United Nations.  Many others curbed their height and slowly changed the area from pre-war low- and mid-rise apartments buildings to luxury apartment towers such as Three Ten at 310 East 53rd Street, 100 United Nations Plaza, the Milan at 300 East 55th Street, the St. James Tower at 415 East 54th Street, the Beekman Regent at 351 East 51st Street, the Mondrian at 250 West 54th Street, and The Collection at 441 East 57th Street.

#1 - River House, 435 East 52nd Street

From the East River, River House, a supreme luxury apartment building midway between Sutton Place and Beekman Place, is distinguished by the many bay windows in the wings of its base and by the graceful curves of its stone skyline ornament.

#6 - 860 United Nations Plaza

#8 - Oriana at River Tower, 420 East 54th Street

This distinctive, 38-story, trapezoidal, through-block apartment tower departs from the city's regimented grid as its long facades are at 45 degree angles with the sidestreets and, more interestingly, its top is larger than its bottom.

Developed in 1983 by Michael W. Stevens and Peter J. de Savary on the former site of Le Club, the city's first private discotheque, this 32-story apartment tower is notable for its dark purple masonry facade, its rounded corners and its very handsome, landscaped plaza.
