THE BUILDING: Rosario Candela was the architect who is credited with defining New York's characteristic terraced setbacks and signature penthouses. The exteriors of his buildings tend to be understated yet he was considered a Master of Design when it came to the interiors. His greatest work occurred during the latter half of the 1920's when he designed numerous buildings on Manhattan's East Side, primarily on Fifth and Park Avenues and Sutton Place. He achieved renown by designing many of New York's most famous buildings, including 834 Fifth Avenue, 740 Park Avenue and this building, among many others. Today, Candela-designed buildings share some of the most sought after addresses in New York. Built as a cooperative in 1928, 30 Sutton Place has a beautiful lobby, only 42 apartments and a fitness room. Known for its dedicated and conscientious staff, the building has a live-in Resident Manager, is pet friendly and is located in the illustrious Sutton Place corridor with many fine restaurants and shops a mere block away. This building offers full time doormen and staff, a fitness room and additional dedicated storage. There is a 2% Flip Tax.
THE LOCATION: Sutton Place is a peaceful enclave in the heart of Manhattan. With the East River and meticulously maintained neighborhood Parks and Gardens on one side and the city on the other side, it is convenient to all areas of Manhattan. It is completely residential, a rarity in New York. The charming neighborhood shops are close by and offer a diverse selection of food shops, restaurants and services.
