The project was ambitious, as it comprised fourteen interlocking apartments on the front with varied ceiling heights and unique designs, along with a smaller pied a terre section on the rear with the address of 3 East 77th Street. Between the two, and accessed from the interconnecting lobby, is the Georgian Suite, a private set of dining rooms with a resident French chef catering to the needs of the owners. A more recent addition to the building is the remarkable glass-walled penthouse gym with terrace, undoubtedly the most appealing gym of any pre-war co-operative in the city.This offering presents a rare opportunity to acquire a uniquely special apartment in one of the finest and most prestigious cooperatives in Manhattan.
