Description

30 East 85th Street is located on the southwest corner of Madison Avenue.

Built in 1987 and designed by the architects of SLCE, the 30-story development mixes gracious style and premium amenities with a killer location. It is very close to Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. All 90 apartments offer spectacular views through large wall-to-wall windows, west toward Central Park, east toward the East River and south to the Midtown skyline. Many apartments have balconies or terraces to further enjoy the views.

Layouts run from studios to four-bedrooms with a few duplexes. All feature top-of-the-line finishes and details, including solid wood doors, cherry wood floors and plaster walls. Kitchens have topnotch appliances, with glass and ash-blond cabinets imported from France and sinks from Germany. Bathrooms, meanwhile, are fitted with marble walls and floors and whirlpool baths. Most apartments have washers and dryers.

30 East 85th Street features concierge service for its residents, who also share the use of a garage, storage and bike rooms. Memberships to the David Barton Gym on the second floor are also available.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the few, new, tall, post-World War II buildings on the Upper East Side west of Lexington Avenue, this 30-story tower at 30 East 85th Street on the southwest corner at Madison Avenue is one of the most luxurious.

It was erected in 1987 by Donald Zucker and Joseph Slifka. " Read Carter's Full Review
