This unique and elegant apartment is found in Olympic Tower, one of the top full-service white glove luxury buildings with a sought-after central Fifth Avenue location, often considered the finest condominium in New York City. Apartment 23A is a luxurious home offering a living room with 180 degree views and two spacious bedrooms and two and a half baths, with expansive 9-foot floor to ceiling windows that ensure a light-filled interior.
This apartment offers some of the most iconic and expansive views in all Manhattan. The living room and both bedrooms have breathtaking unobstructed views of Fifth Ave through to Central Park, encompassing The Plaza, The Peninsular and Bergdorf Goodman. The planned new development Tower Fifth’ will have NO impact on the views.
As offered, the apartment epitomizes 80’s retro chic with original mirrored bathrooms and hallways, and suede-covered walls. The apartment can be customized to suit an individual’s taste and specifications.
The building provides service, convenience and low-key discretion, with unrivaled privacy and security. All staff, including elevator attendants and concierges, are on hand 24 hours a day and are fluent in multiple languages. Valet parking, private state-of-the-art gym, and bicycle storage are available. While dogs/cats are not allowed, corporate purchases and pied a terres are permitted.
The building offers a prime location, between 51st and 52nd streets in the heart of Manhattan’s premier designer shopping area along Fifth Avenue, adjacent to St Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center and affording easy accessibility to the theater district, five-star restaurants and cafes, and Central Park.
The building was constructed by shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis and his company, Victory Development, and designed by the architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, notable for designing the renowned Willis Tower and the John Hancock Center in Chicago.
