515 Park Avenue is a superlative, 43-story tower, designed by Frank Williams & Associates. It only has 38 apartments, which means that most of the units are full floor apartments. The building was completed in 2000 by the Zeckandorf Group with a partnership with the Whitehall Real Estate Fund. It is currently the tallest residential building on Park Avenue above 59th Street, leading it to give the district north of 57th Street a new skyline.
All the apartments have foyers and twelve of the apartments are duplexes. Each unit is beautifully designed, complete with special touches, including solid oak floors, 10 to 12 foot high coffered ceilings, oversized windows with limestone and marble windowsills, solid wood doors and walk-in closets. The living rooms are spacious and perfect for entertaining guests. The kitchens are equipped with state-of the-art appliances and limestone floors. The bathrooms contain enormous marble baths with whirlpool tubs and steam shower. Some units even have large terraces, so residents can enjoy the amazing views of the City.
The amenities are plentiful at 515 Park Avenue. The elegant marble and limestone lobby is where the full-time doorman and 24-hour concierge are on hand for all residents. There are 15 private, climate-controlled wine cellars, 38 storage rooms, washer and dryers, a library, a private gym, conference room, valet services and a dining room. There is also a kitchen for Chef Daniel Boulud, the exclusive caterer for 515 Park Avenue.
Its closeness to Midtown puts everything within walking distance to all of Manhattan’s best shopping and restaurants. Central Park is also a short walk from the building and the location of 515 Park Avenue is quiet. Excellent public transportation is also nearby; including the 59th Street subway lines (N, Q, R, 4, 5 and 6 trains) so residents are can easily travel to other parts of the City.
