Review of 310 East 53rd Street by Carter Horsley

Three Ten is a very handsome, 31-story condominium apartment tower at 310 East 53rd Street on the southeast corner at Second Avenue.

It was built in 2007 by Macklowe Properties.

The 5-story, finely-detailed, limestone-clad base of the building has some duplex apartments with very tall ceilings and wood-burning fireplaces.

The building, which has 88 apartments, was designed by SLCE architects and Moed de Armas & Shannon Architects.

Bottom Line

A stunning glass-clad, setback tower in Midtown East rises over a limestone base with asymmetrically placed and very handsome and large windows in spectacular duplex units.


The building’s setback tower is stunningly clad in blue-glass and has glass-railed corner wrap balconies at its corners.

The base has asymmetrically placed, multi-paned windows that are large and very impressive.

The building has a three-step-up courtyard garden.


The building has a 24-hour concierge and doorman service, a gym, a laundry, a roof deck and a garage.


The building offers three kinds of residences: “mansions,” which are located in the base and are 40-foot-high duplexes with wood-burning fireplaces, three bedrooms, a library, four baths; duplex studios, which are also located in the base, and have 20-foot-high ceilings; and tower residences, two- and three-bedroom units with balconies.  There is also a triplex penthouse.

Kitchens have stainless-steel appliances by Subzero, Gaggenau and Thermador, and marble countertops.

Apartment 6B is a two-bedroom unit that has a 13-foot-long foyer that leads to a 24-foot-long living/dining area next to a 14-foot-long enclosed kitchen, both of which have corner windows as does the unit’s second bedroom.  The apartment also has a 1,200-square-foot terrace.

Apartment 12B has an 11-foot-long entrance gallery that leads to a 23-foot-long living room with two entrances to its wrap-around corner terrace.  It also has three bedrooms and an 11-floot-long enclosed kitchen with an 8-foot-long breakfast room.

Apartment 15C is a three-bedroom unit that has a 28-foot-long entrance gallery that leads to a 29-foot-long living room with a 14-foot-long balcony and an adjacent 17-foot-long dining room space that also opens onto its own 14-foot-long balcony off a 22-foot-long enclosed kitchen.

Apartment 16A is a two-bedroom unit that has a 13-foot-long entry foyer that leads to a 19-foot-long living room adjacent to a 14-foot-long dining room space that has a 11-foot-long terrace.  The unit also has a 16-foot-long enclosed kitchen.

Apartment 23A is a duplex with a 7-foot-long foyer that leads to a 18-foot-long gallery that opens onto a 27-foot-long double-height living room adjacent to a 18-foot-wide dining room with a 15-foot-wide open kitchen and a 18-foot-wide media room.
