How was this building rated?

834 Fifth Avenue, which overlooks Central Park, opened in 1931.

It is 16 stories tall and contains only 24 apartments, allowing for exceedingly spacious residences. The smallest unit is a generous 4,000 square feet, while the largest is roughly 12,000 square feet. Many of these are duplexes and triplexes and while few of them are alike, they all share such features as sweeping and well-organized layouts with long galleries, huge libraries, elegant staircases, lush finishes, oversized windows and universally high ceilings that are a minimum of 11 feet. Setbacks on the higher five floors create terraces for many of the upper apartments, most of which also have working fireplaces.

834 Fifth Avenue has a canopied entrance that is manned by a doorman and 24-hour concierge service. Designed by the city’s preeminent apartment architect, Rosario Candela, it is one of his most successful developments and has attracted celebrities and business titans over its storied history.
