It was once home to the midtown branch of St. Vincent's Catholic Medical Center, but now it's a sprawling, 155-unit condo building, where launched sales this week, The Real Deal first reported.
The conversion of Nine52, as the building is now known, was undertaken by Gaia Real Estate who purchased the property in August 2015 for $156.5 million, property records show. Apartments in the building range from studios to three bedrooms, and prices start at $600,000 and go upwards of $3 million.
Some of the standout features in the apartments, where interior work was undertaken by Erik Galiana, include stained white oak floors, oversized windows, and custom lacquered cabinetry in the kitchen.
Amenities in this SPIVAK Architects-designed building include a landscaped rooftop deck, a yoga and spin room, and a wine cellar.
"We are breathing new life into Nine52 with detailed craftsmanship that has gone into each and every residence," Danny Fishman, the managing partner at Gaia Real Estate, said in a press release. "From the building’s striking exterior to its warm and textured interiors and every amenity one can think of, Nine52 represents the ultimate in luxury and design."
Floormaps for a bunch of units can be accessed on the building's website.
Since St. Vincent's sold the property in 2007 for over $84 million, several attempts were made to develop the property. The Chetrit Group was the first of them, but none of those plans went through until Gaia came to the rescue in August last year.
