The 35-story Manhattan Place appears deceptively enormous due to the angling of the brown-brick and bronze-glass tower, which creates a large plaza facing west. It was built by developer, the Glick Organization, and architect, Costas Kondylis in 1985. This building's sleek appearance is unusual for Manhattan residential towers.
The sleek facades of Manhattan Places is designed to also lessen the visual bulk and is a cut, or two, above typical high-rise construction of the period, especially in a neighborhood traditionally considered less than prime.
The building holds 487 units, and it is ranked number 47 in Manhattan, and it is the number 25 condo in Midtown. Manhattan Places features the amenities of a concierge, garage, health club, garden, roofdeck, and basement storage.
