Designed by Schwartz & Gross and built in 1913, the 21-story former office building at 212 Fifth Avenue facing Madison Square Park now holds 48 residential condominiums, with an ornate Neo-Gothic façade restored by Helpern Architects. The pinnacle holds The Crown, a three-level penthouse purchased by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos,the wealthiest person in the world, who also picked two units directly below for a combined total of 17,000 square feet. 

Pembrooke & Ives decked out the high-ceiled interiors with hardwood floors, while the architects added windows on the south side to provide extra sunlight and views of Madison Square Park into upper-floor units. Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, concierge, a Jay Wright-designed fitness center with a yoga studio and private treatment room, a golf simulator, a screening room, a boardroom, a game room, a children's playroom, a lounge and cold storage for fresh food deliveries. Storage rooms and staff quarters are also available for purchase.

In addition to Madison Square Park, the Manhattan neighborhood is filled with options for arts, culture, shopping and dining, including Eataly, Dover Street Market for hip shopping, Trader Joe’s and the Ace Hotel with its many restaurants and venues that helped put the Nomad neighborhood on the 21st-century radar; it’s a short walk to the Midtown business district, and just about every subway line in the city is a few blocks away.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The very handsome, 21-story, former office building at 212 Fifth Avenue facing Madison Square Park on the southeast corner at 26th Street is being converted to 48 residential condominiums by Madison Equities, which is headed by Robert Gladstone, Building Land and Technology and Thor Equities, which is headed by Joseph Sitt. 

Madison and Thor bought the building in 2014 for $260 million from Extell Development, which is headed by Gary Barnett.  Extell had acquired the site and 12 other properties from Ring Management, which is headed by Frank and Michael Ring, in 2014 for $308 million." Read Carter's Full Review
