1049 Fifth Avenue

Between East 85th Street & East 86th Street

Description of 1049 Fifth Avenue

1049 Fifth Avenue merges an opulent pre-war style with state-of-the art finishes and technology.

It recently underwent an interior gut renovation that included substantial soundproofing between floors and apartments. With only 54 condominium residences on 23 floors, there are no more than three units per floor, with one floor designated for smaller staff apartments.

Residences are sprawling, averaging over 2,000 square feet. There are libraries with raised panel walls, coffered ceilings, Chicago windows with hand-operated panels, solid core raised panel doors, crown moldings and hand-laid rosewood herringbone patterned floors with ebony borders. Marble bathrooms have cherry wood raised panel cabinetry, double sink vanities and deep soaking tubs. Eat-in kitchens have top-of-the-line appliances, white marble and polished gray granite floors, full-size washers and dryers and butler’s pantries with warming ovens. Many residences have multiple terraces offering some of the best views in Manhattan of Central Park and the city.

It has a full-time doorman and concierge, private storage, attended elevators, a bicycle room and refrigerator storage for deliveries.

Carter Horsley's Review of 1049 Fifth Avenue

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"Despite its address, 1049 Fifth Avenue is not a Fifth Avenue building. 

Incredibly, the Manhattan Borough President's office created this address to the delight of the developers, Jack C. Heller and Duncan Macaulay. " Read Carter's Full Review
