Midtown East

Welcome to 685 First Avenue, a modern Manhattan building thoughtfully designed to enhance life in NYC. 685 First Avenue's stunning black glass exterior was crafted to complement its Midtown surroundings while still standing out as a unique addition to the city, while the interiors feature serene, open layouts to match any tastes.

The 148 one-to-four bedroom condominium residences include floor-to-ceiling glass windows, hardwood flooring throughout, and kitchens with white marble and natural stone features and Gaggenau appliances. These smart homes have built-in Crestron home automation systems that allow residents to control lighting, motorized window shades, and climate from their Android or iOS devices.

685 First Avenue's amenities were designed to meet residents' every need. They start with the porte-cochère and underground motor court that allow for maximum privacy and security and continue with the 24-hour attended lobby, pool, fitness center, children's playroom, screening room, dining room, and more. The building also offers easy access to the East River Esplanade, water taxis, heliport, Grand Central Station, and all of the shops, offices, and dining options of Midtown.
