Description of 740 Park Avenue

Michael Gross' 2005 book “740 Park: The Story of the World's Richest Apartment Building” describes the co-op as a "Tower of Power" and “one of the most lusted-after addresses in the world.” The limestone-clad, pre-war edifice, designed by esteemed architects Rosario Candela and Arthur Loomis Harmon, has attracted residents such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, developer William Zeckendorf, and fashion designer Vera Wang. James T. Lee, the grandfather of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, was at the helm of the building that was completed in 1929. It has an exceptional full-service staff, a fitness center, and private storage.

Carter Horsley's Review of 740 Park Avenue

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The conservatively elegant edifice at 740 Park Avenue on the southwest corner at 71st Street is muted luxury: its polished granite entrance reeks of the prospects of satin sheets and the promise of the echoes of fine crystal.

The 31-unit, 19-story building also has an entrance on the side-street at 71 East 71st Street." Read Carter's Full Review
