An invited group of New York brokers were among the first to step into 520 Park Avenue at an event hosted by Zeckendorf Development. Held on the 29th floor concrete slab of the tower’s construction site, the event marked the first time 520 Park Avenue has been open to guests from the brokerage community. Brokers had the opportunity to walk around the full-floor simplex and experience the views of the Upper East Side Historic District and Central Park from its 85 foot frontage. Once completed the simplexes will offer over 225 feet of exterior perimeter windows.
Brokers entered the building from Park Avenue, passing by 520 Park Avenue’s historic neighbor – the Grolier Club – the oldest private club for bibliophiles in America. Each guest received a 520 Park Avenue hardhat before taking the construction hoist up 350 feet.
Located at East 60th Street between Park and Madison Avenue, 520 Park Avenue has now reached 40 percent of its final height. The 800-foot tall tower designed by Robert A.M. Stern will become the tallest building on Manhattan’s historic Upper East Side, offering 33 full-floor residences.
520 Park Avenue is being developed by Zeckendorf Development, with Park Sixty LLC and Global Holdings. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2018.
