27 east 79th street
On this pristine expanse of 79th Street between Madison and Fifth Avenues, only steps from Central Park, rises 27 East 79th Street – a rare addition to a storied streetscape.
Located within the Upper East Side’s Silk Stocking District and overlooking the Cook Block, a row of magnificent nineteenth and early twentieth century residences, 27 East 79th Street is the first condominium to grace this notable block.
Parisian design firm Cabinet Alberto Pinto has created a truly contextual building with foundations in the past. The eight exquisite residences are housed within a boutique building that is influenced by the classical past architecture of fin de siècle Paris.
The building’s façade features rich details of Beaux Arts classicism and delicate Art Nouveau touches while taking its cues from the stately prewar neighbors.
The limestone exterior is complemented by delicate iron grillwork of the entry doors, Juliet balconies and a signature glass-domed marquee, while cartouche and dentil ornamental details echo motifs seen in the neighborhood’s great homes.
In the lobby, materials and decorative leitmotiv from the façade find subtle rhymes in the custom ironwork entry and imported blonde limestone tiles.
Patinated bronze fixtures emit a warm glow against a handsome backdrop of Noir Saint Laurent marble, styled after the entryways to traditional Parisian private residences.
A stately concierge desk is staffed by a 24-hour doorman providing convenience and security for residences.
