Century Tower features brand-new apartments in a classic prewar building that has been fully renovated. The twelve-story brick building was originally designed by the famed Rosario Candela, and the condo conversion was completed by Vornado, with Walter Melvin & SCLE as the project architects. Century Tower offers the best of both worlds, with elegant prewar charm interspersed with modern interiors.
The residences at Century Tower are spacious and well laid-out, with new finishes and fixtures displayed throughout the recently renovated homes. Each unit offers a generous living room, a breakfast area and well-proportioned bedrooms and maid's rooms. The gourmet kitchens are equipped with integrated cabinetry and fine finishes. Spa-like bathrooms offer residents a Zen retreat after a long and arduous day.
The Upper East Side is one of the most coveted neighborhoods for New York real estate, and with good reason. Residents enjoy a close proximity to some of the best retail shopping in the world, as well as gourmet dining at such restaurants as Nello, La Goulue and Amaranth. The only thing that could possibly detract from this location is the location on a Central Park through street, where there is a high level of traffic during parts of the day. Fortunately, the traffic is mainly on the west side of the street and usually dissipates during the evening.
