PLOT SIZE: 20' x 100.42'
FLOOR/AREA: Approximately 5,100 square feet
Home to Davis & Langdale Company since 1952, this unique property is situated on the cusp of the Upper East Side just down the block from Bloomingdales department store. The property will be delivered vacant and boasts an impressive approximately 1,000 square foot lush garden hidden behind the rows of townhouses between East 60th and 61st Street. A front garden area welcomes visitors to the building along with a wrought iron railing and a flow of wisteria from the neighboring townhome.
The building stands twenty feet wide and fifty feet deep, straight up from the ground floor to the fifth. Excellent light fills this property from both the North and South with low lying buildings to the front and back. Well suited for a single-family home, each floor presently exists as its own unit with a central stair connecting each floor. There is a store designation on the ground floor, which allows for a partial commercial use; however, the entire property can be converted to one single family home.
There are presently no historic restrictions on the building, allowing for the façade to be changed if desired. The property also includes additional air-rights, allowing for an extension to the rear of the building or the possibility to add additional floors.
The block is known for its proximity to the Decoration and Design building and has a mix of well known neighbors from single family homes to high-end designer showrooms. Notable stores include the famed Serendipity 3, Dylan's Candy, John Salibello and Ethan Allen.
Many of the city's top office buildings are walking distance including the GM Building, the Bloomberg Building, Lever house, Seagram Building and L&L's new 425 Park Avenue. Local restaurants include Tao, Harry Cipriani, Scalinatella, Avra, Lavo, Le Bilboquet, La Goulue, Serafina and Philippe by Philippe Chow. Madison Avenue shopping is a short three blocks away with stores such as Barneys New York, Celine, Balenciaga, Tom Ford, Brioni, Bally, Berluti and Hermes.
A block to the West of the property there is access to the 4, 5, 6, N, R & W trains. Additionally, there is access to the Q and F trains three blocks away. At the foot of the block to the East, is the tram to Roosevelt Island, where a complete transformation has been taking place over the past few years as the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute builds its new campus. A collaboration between The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and Cornell University, phase one of the campus construction was completed in 2017. When fully completed, the campus will span some six and half million square feet of state-of-the-art buildings and over two acres of open space. It will be home to more than two thousand graduate students as well as hundreds of faculty and staff. According to the city’s estimations, the new campus will generate up to eight thousand permanent jobs, hundreds of spin-off companies and more than $23 billion in economic activity over the next 35 years.
