A new building scrapes the sky above New York

A new building scrapes the sky above New York adding an astonishing design to the already iconic skyline of the Big Apple.  Rising above Midtown in the heart of New York City, 520 Fifth will be the tallest residential tower on Fifth Avenue. In addition to the 100 new condominium residences that start on the 42nd floor, 520 Fifth will feature a collection of boutique luxury office floors and Moss, a new member’s club delivering best-in-class hospitality in partnership with an internationally renowned restaurateur, recreation, athletics and wellness.

“520 Fifth Avenue is the expression of our long-held belief that real luxury is about connection and community. Our world-class team has created beautiful and highly-serviced spaces throughout the building that create opportunities to rejuvenate and relax, but also to engage, to learn and to connect. We are deeply proud to deliver a project that we believe will feel like an authentic part of its iconic neighborhood and that will capture a bit of the spark, the glamour, the history and the soul that make New York the greatest city in the world.”

 Josh Rabina, President of Rabina

The interiors of Rabina’s 520 Fifth

One- to four-bedroom homes are distributed vertically throughout the building’s top 40 stories, providing residences of all sizes access to the building’s highest floors with breathtaking views of the iconic Manhattan skyline, from river-to-river and beyond. A residents-only amenity floor on the building’s 88th floor is the building’s crown jewel, featuring a stunning glass-walled solarium, lounge, dining room, library and game room to supplement Moss’s extensive services. Sales are being launched from a remarkable new gallery and private lounge next door that overlooks the building as it rises.

Rabina assembled a world-class team to bring 520 Fifth to life with architecture by the globally renowned Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and interiors by Vicky Charles’ AD100 design firm, Charles & Co, known for beloved club and hospitality spaces around the world and ultra-high-end residential interiors for the most discerning global clientele.

Inspired by the many Beaux-Arts and landmark buildings surrounding 520 Fifth Avenue, KPF incorporated architectural elements that honor the neighborhood’s history while bringing a distinct modernity to the building’s prominent Fifth Avenue corner. Signature glazed terracotta arches frame ten-foot by ten-foot glass apertures and gracefully tiered terraces animate the façade as they spiral up the tower.

Located in the heart of a newly energized Midtown, 520 Fifth Avenue marks the center of the center of the world’s greatest city. When completed in 2025, the building’s residences will grace the skyline with distinguished architectural icons, including the New York Public Library, Grand Central Station, Rockefeller Center and the Chrysler Building. Homes are just a few blocks away from bustling Bryant Park, two blocks from the unrivaled transit options of Grand Central Station and close to all that makes living in Manhattan extraordinary: Central Park, the Theater District, Fifth Avenue shopping, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMa), Rockefeller Center and world-class dining.
