Fifth Avenue hearkened a new era of glamour unlike anything the city, or the country, had seen before. Its storied history featuring New York’s aristocracy cements Fifth Avenue’s standing as an international symbol of wealth, power and status. As such, Fifth Avenue becomes the heartbeat of a burgeoning metropolis and the social spine of a newly glittering New York. This exclusive status is confirmed in 1862, when society’s grande dame Caroline Schermerhorn Astor choose to settle on its crossroads at 34th Street.
Sigillus has a collection of stunning 2 to 4 bedrooms apartments and penthouses in a newly refurbished development, due to be completed by the end of 2016. The development is located at the coveted address of Fifth Avenue with the iconic area code that captures the mystique of Manhattan like no other, creating the quintessential Manhattan address of today.
This development offers a twenty four stories tall, powerful verticality, dignified limestone, which are all supported by the beautiful bones of an ingenious steel frame that allows for high ceilings with a minimum of view-interrupting columns. The development’s sprawling, open floor plans and oversized, light-inviting windows offer an inspiring loft-like, blank slate for residential use. A distinctive architectural feature of early skyscrapers at the turn of the 20th century, crenellations helped define a building’s identity and style. Carefully restored to its original glory, these apartments are an unmistakable beacon, heralding a winning combination of architectural features rarely assembled today.
Select residences feature panoramic views of lower Manhattan and Madison Square Park, northern and southern cityscapes and west over Broadway. All residences offer loft-like open layouts and beamed ceilings, chevron-pattern oak hardwood flooring in living rooms with oversized windows, multiple HVAC system zones, book-matched arabescato marble foyers, savant home automation ready for expansion and Walter Gropius-inspired entry custom door handles.
