Developed by Madison Equities, 212 Fifth is a standout building with the iconic New York telephone exchange “212” for its address. What could be more New York? Well, maybe its $74 million triplex penthouse. The building has a total of 48 condos with two to five bedrooms with current prices ranging from $4.8 million to $18.6 million, excluding the $73.8 million penthouse. It sits on the southwest corner of 26th Street with commanding views of Madison Square Park.
Curbed in an article entitled, “Peek at the amenity space in Nomad’s opulent 212 Fifth Avenue,” unveiled the exciting amenity offerings of this landmark building.
Designed by Pembrook & Ives, the amenity offerings include multiple graceful meeting and dining rooms as well as a resident’s lounge with catering kitchen and a movie-screening room. All are a medium-blue with strong color accents that make the spaces feel both elegant and contemporary. Other amenities include a game room, children’s playroom, yoga studio, and Wright Fit fitness center. And unique in the neighborhood, as far as we can tell, is a golf simulator.
Not only is 212 an architectural gem, but it sits on an interesting historical site. Once President Teddy Roosevelt’s childhood dancing school was on this corner. In the Gilded Age, it was the site of Delmonio’s, and still later Café Martin. Dinner guests at these restaurants included the likes of Mark Twain, George M. Cohan, Diamond Jim Brady, Lillian Russell, Stanford White, Charles Dickens, presidents, and foreign dignitaries. Directly across the park, Jenny Jerome was growing up to be Lady Randolph Churchill, mother of Winston Churchill.
