Last week, Elegran agents got the opportunity to visit The Oriana at 420 East 54th street. Oriana, which means “rising” in Latin, is an appropriate name for this building that has been given new life thanks to a stunning renovation that was launched to modernized the apartment and provide residents with the top luxury amenities.

Originally developed in 1982 as River Tower by real estate legend Harry Macklowe, The Oriana was considered the “it” building of the time, and it was once home to famed boxer Mike Tyson. While the building still maintains a lot of its original charm, the interior is in the process of being completely redone to welcome it into the 21st century.

Located in Sutton Place, the Oriana offers some truly stunning views of the East River. Residents of the upper floors can gaze out their windows onto the water and feel as though they’re nowhere near the hustle of Manhattan. They can also catch the view from the rooftop lounge, which as an area for laying out and catching some sun, along with a rooftop kitchen and grill, perfect for hosting summer barbecues or dinner parties.

Inside the renovated apartments residents will find numerous large windows to let in natural light, and a home that’s designed with both style and function in mind. The open kitchen features quartz countertops with a beautiful matte finish, along with a host of Bosh appliances, soft-close cabinets, a hidden microwave drawer, and a dishwasher that’s so quiet it can be hard to tell if it’s on or not.
