The building

260 Park Avenue South is a luxury boutique condominium comprised of two neoclassical buildings (built in 1917 and 1930 respectively) and converted to 86 apartments on 12 floors in 2004 by Karl Fischer Architects with interiors by Shamir Shah Design. The developers of the project were Adam Hochfelder at Max Capital; Yitzchak Tessler of Linjan Associates LLC; and Insignia Financial Group. The building was the former headquarters of the United Federation of Teachers for about 30 years. 260 Park Avenue South has an elegant lobby which enters on East 21st Street and has views onto a tranquil rock garden. The building is divided up into three elevator banks, so there are never more than five apartments on any given floor. All of the apartments have high ceilings, double-paned windows, central air/heat, washer/dryers, open chef’s kitchens and walnut stained oak floors. Residents enjoy a full time concierge and doorman, a state of the art fitness center, three roof decks, and bike storage. The building is pet-friendly and welcomes pied-a-terres.

This chic, full-service, pre-war condominium residence is perfectly located minutes from Gramercy Park, Union Square, and Madison Square Park and steps from some of Manhattan’s best shopping, dining, and the 6, N, and R trains.
