740 Park Avenue

Upper East Side

Standing tall over Central Park, 740 Park Avenue has long been one of the Upper East Side’s iconic co-op listings, and a symbol of pre-war elegance, exclusivity, and luxury in the Manhattan neighborhood most associated with those attributes. Built in 1930 by famous architect Rosario Candela, 740 Park Avenue retains its classic, old-Manhattan looks, and boasts a prime Upper East Side location that will never go out of style. But 740 Park Avenue’s palatial residences are, in their understated way, as state-of-the-art as they are classic. The apartments for sale at 740 Park Avenue rank among the most sought-after apartment listings on the Upper East Side, and are among the most exclusive listings in Manhattan, period.

The sprawling duplexes at 740 Park Avenue offer parquet floors, walnut-paneled rooms, and elegant elliptical staircases that lead up to the expansive second floor. Residences at 740 Park Avenue are equipped with the sort of top-of-the-line finishes and fixtures New Yorkers expect from a top-tier Manhattan luxury condominium, but also feature the classic lines and gracious dimensions more commonly associated with pre-war Manhattan condominiums. Regal dining rooms and large libraries are also to be found in each residence at 740 Park Avenue, sunlit by large windows that overlook Central Park. 740 Park Avenue offers elegance that stands out even among the highest of high-end Upper East Side condo listings.

Privacy is undoubtedly one of the top amenities available at 740 Park Avenue. With just 32 residences in the building, 740 Park Avenue is the one of the more exclusive buildings in Manhattan. This combination of contemporary amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center and such classic Manhattan luxuries as an attentive live-in staff, as well as the classic elegance of the apartments for sale marks 740 Park Avenue as one of the more attractive buildings in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. With a storied history -- famous Manhattanites such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis have called 740 Park Avenue home -- and all the perks and comforts of an ultra-high-end Manhattan apartment building, 740 Park Avenue remains one of the most iconic apartment listings on the Upper East Side, and something very like the Upper East Side co-op by which other Upper East Side co-ops are judged.
