The Grand Sutton, 418 East 59th Street

Between First Avenue & Sutton Place

Description of The Grand Sutton

The Grand Sutton at 418 East 59th Street rises 37 stories at the foot of the Queensboro Bridge, which comes into splendid, direct view from floor-to-ceiling windows, which also open onto the East River and the Midtown skyline. The building’s narrow profile and freestanding exposure on three sides ensures ample sunlight in every room, even in most kitchens and bathrooms. Most units come with a balcony, en-suite bedroom layouts, dishwashers, and washers and dryers, which are further supplemented by the building’s common laundry room.

A canopied entrance leads across a small garden toward a doorman- and concierge-attended lobby, where an ornate stone floor, wood paneling, and a fireplace channel an Old World ambience, in counterbalance to the skyscraper’s sleek black glass exterior, crowned by a dramatic mansard roof that makes an eye-catching statement on the Midtown East skyline. The building also offers a courtyard garden, fitness center, parking, and additional resident storage. A garage is nearby.

The Grand Sutton stands near the junction of several neighborhoods, within steps of the East River waterfront, the shopping and business district in Midtown, the quiet Sutton Place neighborhood, and the ample dining options in the Upper East Side. Central Park lies within easy walking distance, as do the green spaces and bike trails in Roosevelt Island, accessible via the nearby aerial tram that passes by in close view from north-facing apartments. Pets, pied-a-terre, co-purchasers and guarantors are permitted.

Carter Horsley's Review of The Grand Sutton

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"With its steeply pitched and very attractive roof and black-glass façades, this 37-story apartment tower would be quite distinguished looking if it were free-standing. It is, however, smack up against the east "party" wall of The Sovereign, one of the city's largest apartment buildings that rises another ten stories or so higher. A "party" wall is a wall that abuts a building line of an adjacent property. Building at the party wall is quite common as the phalanx of buildings on Park Avenue and elsewhere, or rows of townhouses, demonstrate. It is unusual, however, for two major towers to share a party wall and here the effect was particularly dramatic as the Sovereign had long dominated the Sutton Place/Queensborough Bridge skyline in Manhattan.

Both buildings, of course, share fabulous views of the great bridge across the street and in 2000 some of the bridge's huge and very impressive vaults across the street were converted into a very impressive new restaurant, Gustavino's and a major supermarket. In addition, Conran's, a British design store that once was housed in Citicorp Center also opened in a few standing, modern pavilion with a swooping roofline just in front of Gustavinos's in a handsome, landscaping plaza."
