Developed by the legendary Aristotle Onassis, and designed by the equally distinct architects of Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Olympic Tower (641 Fifth Avenue arguably holds the finest residential location in Midtown Manhattan. Overlooking Rockefeller Center, Saks Fifth Avenue, and St. Patricks Cathedral, the 52-floor building has upscale shops in the base which set the tone for the apartments above that start on the 22nd floor.
Nowhere is that more evident than apartment #42DE, a three-bedroom, 4.5-bath product of two corner units being combined into one grand apartment with floor-to-ceiling windows. The north corner of the home offers glimpses of Central Park. The living room wraps around to the east for indescribable East River and city vistas, stretching all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. A formal dining room faces south and overlooks the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.

As magnificent as this apartment's views are, its interiors are not to be overlooked. A well-equipped kitchen has an adjacent pantry with built-in wine storage. The master suite faces south and has multiple closets, a dressing room, and five-fixture marble bath. No detail is overlooked with the secondary bedrooms; they all have generous closet space and their own baths. The apartment is listed for $8.5 million.
Olympic Tower is staffed by a doorman, concierge, and elevator attendants; amenities include a fitness center and bike room. Close neighbors include Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. It is just blocks away from the finest shopping, dining, and services.
