1185 Park Avenue is an architectural treasure, one of the last of the large apartment houses built in the shape of a hollow square. Constructed in 1929 by Abraham Bricken, the full-block hollow square structure with three arched Gothic-styled entrances, was designed by Schwartz & Gross who also conceived the famous "Ghostbuster's building" at 55 Central Park West. The building's design provides for six separate lobbies and enables each elevator to serve only two apartments. Its residents revere the private uptown location. Known for its large entrance galleries, the grand scale of its rooms, and thoughtful layouts, 1185 Park is a highly sought-after address and one of the premier buildings on Park Avenue. There are 15 floors with 165 apartments and a host of amenities including white-glove service, concierge, private elevator landings, a 24-hour security guard and doormen, a roof deck with spectacular Park Avenue views, a large fitness room and playroom. The building is pet friendly and 50% financing is allowed. 2% flip tax payable by purchaser.
