1212 Fifth Avenue New York

120,000 Square Feet

Modern interiors and contemporary conveniences were introduced into this pre-war Fifth Avenue apartment building, giving it new life while retaining its original charm and elegant sense of style.

Nestled on an extraordinary location facing Central Park, 1212 Fifth Avenue was designed in 1925 by George and Edward Blum. Following a comprehensive renovation, living spaces have been artfully rearranged, new amenities blend with restored original details, and environmentally-friendly elements compliment luxurious finishes. This once conventional building is now striking and stylish: a classic pre-war building with a modern sensibility.

The elegant lobby reinterprets 1920s grandeur with subtle decorative patterns, antique nickel fixtures, and a refined, high-contrast theme. Reflective white marble floors and Venetian plaster walls are offset by dark bamboo columns, alcoves, and window frames; while the original carved plaster ceiling, lovingly restored in a white finish, enshrines the building’s architectural heritage.

New amenities rooms include a Fitness Center and a Children’s Lounge, where simple lines and splashes of color punctuate the neutral palette. Both facilities boast state-of-the-art equipment and sophisticated furnishings.

The building’s fifty-seven residences include spectacular custom-designed kitchens and bathrooms that feature Ceasarstone countertops, Dornbracht fixtures, antique nickel hardware, and raised panel millwork.  Master bathrooms feature Bianco Dolomiti marble slab walls and vanity tops, while dark oak floors, restored ceiling beams and wood moldings provide traditional accents.
