Built in 1927, this 16-story red brick building makes luxury a priority. Designed by Schwartz & Gross, it was originally the Mark Hotel; however, it was closed for two years for renovations and re-opened in 2008. While the lower floors remain a hotel, the building now contains 118 hotel rooms and 42 apartments. Units range in size from one to six bedrooms.
Several apartments have wall-mounted panels for temperature control, motorized blackout and decorative shades and Miele Touchtronic Series washers/dryers. Kitchens contain Boffi high-gloss white lacquer cabinetry and brushed lower black granite countertops and electric cooktops. They also contain quality appliances including Miele dishwashers and Sub-Zero refrigerators. The spa-like bathrooms have marble floors and walls, soaking tubs, heated towel bars and glass-enclosed showers.
The Mark provides its residents with a vast array of amenities, including 24-hour concierge services and doorman. There is also a fitness center, business center, multilingual secretarial support, valet parking and limousine service. Another benefit is residents have signing privileges at Frederic Fekkai's Salon Mark, Bar Mark and Sant Ambrose, an Italian restaurant located nearby on Madison Avenue that is known for its delicious cappuccino.
Being located on the Upper East Side, The Mark is in close proximity to fantastic boutiques, restaurants and art galleries. Central Park is practically its backyard and nearby cultural attractions include the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
