Building Description

740 Park Avenue has a reputation all its own. Once called “The World's Richest Building,” 740 Park Avenue has been and still is home to some of New York City's most famous and powerful residents, from politicians to designers and socialites. Perhaps famed Italian architect Rosario Candela's signature work, 740 Park Avenue can only be described as grand pre-war design taken to another level. Located at the center of the Upper East Side, in many ways Manhattan's most established neighborhood, 740 Park Avenue is one of the few co-ops that can go solely by name recognition, a testament to the attention to detail put into every room, hallway, and façade.   Exquisite detailing and intricate floor plans describe life at 740 Park Avenue. Duplexes have circular stairways, while each apartment for sale has a number of small features that exemplify the amount of care taken to ensure that every room is as luxurious as possible. Arched doorways, separate dining rooms, maids' quarters, and libraries are standard at 740 Park Avenue. Large windows with elegant and original drapes draw in natural light, illuminating even the smallest of finishes. Unusual touches such as walnut and parquet flooring give this luxury condominium listing a playful touch. Additionally, terraces are quite common and provide outstanding views of Central Park, the Upper East Side, and glimpses of Midtown Manhattan's massive skyline. Not much more can or needs to be said about 740 Park Avenue; the address says it all.
