Commissioned by Nelson Rockefeller, the building was designed by Wallace K. Harrison and J. Andre Fouilhoux and completed in 1937.

Initially a rental aimed at out-of-town business people working at Rockefeller Center, the apartment complex was later converted into a residential co-op.

The iconic Rockefeller apartments were commissioned by Nelson Rockefeller in 1937 as pied a terres and were designed by his architects, Harrison and Fouilhoux. The use of industrial materials such as the curving bays of metal sash windows, bear the hallmarks of early International Style design and lead to the building’s Landmark designation in 1984.

Penthouse A has just undergone a complete gut renovation by noted architect Neal Stufano, to create a sophisticated and glamorous aerie with superb city views, surrounded by 500SF of wide terraces perfect for entertaining and private enjoyment.

The apartment has a bright and airy open plan featuring 10’ ceilings and the original huge floor to ceiling steel framed doors which have been restored and fitted with thermopane glass to feature the impressive city skyline views looking north towards Billionaires Row, and the newly evolving Midtown skyline. The living room and the dining area both have a wall of these windows with doors to the terrace, and are further enhanced by a wood burning fireplace and cleverly designed storage space underneath the dining banquette.

A hallway leads to the master bedroom, also with a wall of windows and built-in closet. There are beautiful new oak herringbone hardwood floors and solid oak wood doors with nickel hardware, and the impressive chef’s kitchen has stainless steel appliances, handsome slate grey cabinetry, stone countertops, subway tile walls, marble flooring and a large west-facing window.

This meticulously designed apartment offers the buyer an opportunity to enjoy a turn-key penthouse experience in the heart of Manhattan, just three blocks from Central Park and across the road from MOMA’s sculpture garden. Its perfect location is in the midst of all the city has to offer, from Broadway shows to Fifth Avenue shopping, fine restaurants, art galleries, and museums.
