This two-bedroom apartment is located at the Ritz Tower at 465 Park Avenue in Midtown East. Though this is a classic pre-war co-op, designed by Emery Roth nonetheless, this particular high-floor unit has been transformed into a groovy mid-century home, complete with tulip columns, white marble floors, and period-specific decor. Asking $1,995,000, it also boasts incredible northern, southern, and western views through its 14 windows, along with two outdoor terraces.

The entrance leads to the open living space, which features white marble floors, the aforementioned tulip-shaped columns, and rounded window casings and moldings. The southern end is used as a breakfast nook, which opens to the first terrace. Here, you’ll get views of Midtown from the corner of 57th and Park, including those of 432 Park Avenue, the new One Vanderbilt tower, and even some of Billionaires’ Row.

The northern end of the space is set up as a formal dining room, off which is the second terrace.

Through unique sliding black glass doors is the contemporary kitchen, complete with retro grey-blue cabinetry, stainless steel counters, a charcoal penny-tile backsplash, and double ovens.

Also through the sliding doors is one of the bedrooms, which is set up as a den. The large, curving windows continue in this room, which are accented by floor-to-ceiling built-ins. There’s both a walk-in closet and another large closet, as well as an en-suite bathroom.

The other bedroom is back on the southern end of the home. It, too, has built-ins, tons of closet space, and an en-suite bathroom.

As mentioned, the 42-story Ritz Tower was built by legendary architect Emery Roth in 1926. At the time, it was the tallest residential tower in the world. Today, its 142 units have access to an on-premises chef, 24-hour concierge and doormen, house-keeping services, valet and porters, fitness facility, conference room, and business center.
