Sage House Overview

Sage House is an extremely handsome, pre-war office building that was erected in 1912 for the Russell Sage Foundation at 4 Lexington Avenue on the southeast corner at 22nd Street. 

It was sold in 1949 to Catholic Charities and in 1975 it was converted to residential use. 

Designed by Grosvenor Atterbury in Italian Renaissance palazzo-style, the heavily rusticated red sandstone façades of the building are very impressive. 

The 11-story building has about 160 small apartments and a few multi-floor apartments and is steps away from Gramercy Park.
