Ever since a 2011 stop-work order put a temporary halt to construction at 61 Fifth Avenue, the luxury condos have been quiet, resurfacing only to announce their topping out earlier this year. So today is a big day! 61 Fifth Avenue is officially here, on the market, for all those buzzed-about luxury buyers. Its marketing, too, is quiet, with just the appearance of all four units on StreetEasy. But rich people like discretion, right?
The least expensive unit available, the lowest duplex, is asking $12.975 million, and the second and third duplexes are priced higher, at $13.975 million and $14.975 million. Then there's a jump to the triplex penthouse, asking $28.5 million for 5,924 square feet of indoor space and another 1,901 square feet of private outdoor space. The listings don't say much about overall building amenities except to mention that the building is LEED-certified.
Before it housed luxury condos, the site was home to a Schrafft's luncheonette, opened in 1938, and then to the Lone Star Cafe. In 1979, director Bob Fosse shot a nightclub scene there for All That Jazz.
