This super-luxury haven stands overlooking Cook Block, only steps away from Central Park. With a graciously open layout and proportional spaces for bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms, the exquisite full-floor, town house, duplex, and triplex residences were designed by Cabinet Alberto Pinto. Its neighborhood is studded with cafés, restaurants, shopping malls, art galleries and museums of the finest standards like The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and spectacular views like that of the Bow Bridge.
It is not only the surrounding capacity of these residences that mirror pristine expanses and convenient escapes for leisure, the interior adds to the grandeur of 27 East 79th Street. The spacious rooms have the classic NYC vibe, with natural light filtering into the layout generously and a direct elevator entry makes the residences even more convenient and well equipped.
CITY REALTY ARTICLE
This slender 15-story building at 27 East 79th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues has been designed by Cabinet Alberto Pinto of Paris, which is headed by the late designer's sister, Linda.
It is due for completion in 2019 by Adellco, and will have 8 condominium apartments and some retail.
HTO Architect is the architect of record.
It is on the former site of the Richard Feigen Gallery designed by Hans Hollein in 1970 with a paired stainless-steel, two-story-high entrance column that later became the boutique of Hanae Mori, the Japanese designer. Hollein redesigned the 1887 brownstone into a spanking showcase of Old Master art that subsequently became the American flagship of a major Japanese fashion designer.
In her April 25, 2014 obituary of Mr. Hollein in The New York Times, Margalit Fox said that the architect "loved columns, and while there are few things more classical than a column, in his hands they could take on almost a Surrealist aspect, as in his Vienna branch office of the Austrian State Travel Agency," adding that "there, as if to conjure faraway places, he turned a cluster of them into a stand of brass-sheathed palm trees."
Hollein became the 7th winner of the prestigious Pritzker Prize in architecture in 1985 and this small but prominent project was his most visible in the United States.
The location has excellent bus service and is convenient to numerous boutiques and very popular restaurants such as San Ambroeus and Serafina.
The building is down the street from Michael Blomberg's residence and Central Park.
