737 Park Avenue Renovation

Client Macklowe Properties
Location New York City, NY
Status Completed in 2013

Originally built in 1940, 737 Park Avenue was restored and upgraded to condominium level finishes.

737 Park Avenue is a prewar building at the northeast corner of 71st street on the Upper East Side. Built in 1940, the building was designed by art deco architect Sylvan Bien. In 2011, Handel Architects was hired to renovate and restore the building, transforming it into a contemporary condominium building.  

Each unit includes large living, dining and bedrooms with solid oak floors. New casement windows were added as well as a new air conditioning and heating system. Gracious living spaces feature 1½” wide, ¾” rift and quartered solid white oak floors, custom crown moldings, door trim and 4” milled baseboards, and trim-less lighting fixtures throughout. Windowed kitchens are equipped with Miele stainless steel appliances and marble floors, countertops and backsplash. Large bathrooms are outfitted with Italian marble with custom vanities, heated floors and Dornbracht polished chrome fixtures.

Residents enjoy 24-hour doorman and elevator operators, a resident manager, fitness center, children’s playroom, private storage and bicycle and stroller storage.
