The beautiful Beaux Arts structure on the corner of Madison Square Park and Fifth Avenue began its life as an office building in 1912. Now, with the help of Helpern Architects and Pembrooke & Ives, the tower has been reinvented as a collection of luxury condos. 212 Fifth Avenue is home to 47 Madison Square Park condos, including The Crown, the building’s exclusive penthouse. Residents of the triplex will be greeted by a marble foyer which leads into the spacious Great Room. The Great Room features a massive fireplace, high ceilings, and herringbone hardwood floors. A seven-room master suite is complete with a two bedrooms, a sitting room, a spa-like bath with Carrara marble walls, two walk-in closets, a bar and kitchenette, and a separate staircase to the upper level. The second level contains an additional bedroom, bathroom, powder room, kitchenette, and outdoor space large enough to easily accommodate a pool and numerous seating and entertaining options. The third floor observatory level reveals breathtaking views of New York landmarks including Madison Square Park, the Empire State Building, the Clock Tower, the Flatiron Building, and Freedom Tower just to name a few.
