Description

The 19-story limestone-clad condominium residence at 135 East 79th Street on the Upper East Side is known to be among the city’s best pre-war-style apartment buildings constructed in the post-war era. A pair of 22-foot-tall espaliered pear tree sculptures flank the arched entrance; antique ground floor window grilles were made by the firm that fabricated the gates for Buckingham Palace; the lobby floor is laid in patterned travertine slab stonework, while antique French gilded bronze chandeliers hang beneath a double-height vaulted ceiling. Within are 32 large 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-bedroom apartments, several with terraces, topped by a handful of dazzling penthouses. Amenities include a full-time doorman and concierge, a landscaped private garden courtyard, a fitness center with private training studio, a residents’ lounge with a catering kitchen and a club/game room overlooking the garden. Private wine cellars, bicycle storage and private storage are also available. The building’s location is classic Upper East Side, a couple of blocks from Central Park, Museum Mile and Madison Avenue shopping and restaurants like Cafe Boulud. Cult favorites like Soul Cycle, Candle 79 and H & H Bagels are steps away to sustain everyday life.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The second best pre-war apartment building in the city in the post-war period is this limestone-clad, 19-story, mid-block building at 135 East 79th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues.

The building was erected in 2013 and has 32 condominium apartments. It was built by The Brodsky Organization and designed by William Sofield, a designer whose clients have included Gucci and Tom Ford." Read Carter's Full Review
