How was this building rated?

Built in 1987 and designed by the architects of SLCE, the 30-story development mixes gracious style and premium amenities with a killer location.

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.
