Manhattan, NY According to Madison Equities, 212 Fifth Ave. is 100% sold. The 24 story, 48-unit, landmark neo-Gothic early skyscraper is situated in Madison Square Park, north of the Flatiron Building and south of the Empire State Building.
Constructed in 1912, the lavish condominiums feature gracious layouts, high ceilings and large windows that flood the residences with light, offering exceptional views of the Manhattan skyline and Madison Square Park. Designers Pembrooke & Ives and David Helpern fused pre-war design and contemporary features into the residences, including marble entry foyers, gallery hallways, grand living rooms, open kitchens with custom ash millwork, Calacatta marble counters and top-of-the line Gaggenau appliances.
“Discerning buyers seek out and appreciate exceptional design and execution, and the impeccable combination of classical luxury and enduring value brought us to this milestone,” said Robert Gladstone, CEO of Madison Equities.“Closing out sales at 212 Fifth Ave. marks an impressive achievement in downtown Manhattan as the sales cycle remained strong from the project’s beginning stages, all the way to completion.”
