There's something to be said for a Manhattan pre-war condo, of course, but new construction NYC condos like Number 5, at 5 East 44th Street, make a pretty compelling case for progress. With a strikingly contemporary design courtesy of Philip Johnson Alan Ritchie architects, Number 5 stands out as a beacon of stylish modernity in Midtown East. Factor in a strikingly central Midtown Manhattan location, thoughtfully designed condominiums for sale, and an impressive suite of amenities, and it's easy to see why Number 5 ranks among the finest new condominium listings in Midtown. From its distinctive architecture to its very clean, very modern condos for sale, Number 5 is unmistakably a new condominium building. The high aesthetic standard set by the stunning modernist lobby carries over to the apartments for sale at Number 5, all of which feature luminous hardwood floors, high ceilings, abundant natural light (thanks to oversized windows) and spacious, strikingly open floor plans. Number 5's sleek, open kitchens were designed by international interior design firm Bulthaup, and feature both the expected state-of-the-art appliances and some very unexpected aesthetics. Marble-and-glass bathrooms boast elegant finishes, textured walls and a similarly high level of design distinction. Private terraces on select condos offer striking views and a unique refuge from the city below. While the condos for sale at Number 5 offer all the comforts one expects from a luxury condominium in Manhattan, they also offer a degree of style and architectural sophistication few NYC condos can match.
