Midtown East Makes Room for the Lavish 685 First Avenue

Sometimes it may seem as though Midtown has no more room for any new additions, but for a fabulous luxury home like 685 First Avenue, the packed neighborhood and bustling streets of Midtown East will find space.

Solow Realty & Development collaborated with Architect Richard Meier & Partners to bring this black glass 42-story skyscraper to the area. With 556 apartments, each one offering residents the ultimate in comfort and convenience. 

685 First Avenue will offer one-to-four bedroom condominium homes that will include floor-to-ceiling windows, floors lined with polished hardwood, airy ceilings, spacious walk-in closets, and an open gourmet kitchen that will feature white marble and natural stone countertops, Gaggenau appliances, backsplash, custom wood cabinets, and a kitchen island that completes the home. Bathrooms will have a large soaking tub for residents to relax, slate tile, marble countertops, and oversized mirrors.

This new residential building will have all the New York standard luxury amenities including a children’s playroom, private parking area, storage room, laundry service, state-of-the-art fitness center, fully-equipped game room, screening room, yoga studio, pool, and of course a rooftop terrace exposing all of the city’s stunning views. Because 685 First Avenue is located in the center of Manhattan, it has easy access to the city’s finest and most iconic spots including the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, and more. This building also sits just a block from the East River, along with boutique shops, outdoor seating cafes, eateries, and several subway lines.

Although it won’t be complete until 2019, homes have already hit the market! One-bedrooms start at $1,625,000, two-bedrooms start at $4,200,000, three-bedrooms start at $4,875,000, and four-bedrooms start at $8,100,000.
