Unit 3C at Turtle Bay Towers is a beautifully renovated spacious loft style apartment with 12.5 foot ceilings and oversized windows. The thoughtfully layed-out unit has a private glass enclosed bedroom and a fully renovated bathroom with a dressing area. Set on a serene stretch of Midtown East just down the block from the United Nations Headquarters, Turtle Bay Towers is a full-service luxury building set in a historic prewar property. Built in 1929 as an NYC design school and known for its striking terraced facade, the 27-story tower was briefly home to a print factory. In 1979, its careful conversion to 338 luxury apartments was noted with the First Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects. On-site amenities at this pet-friendly property include a large renovated lobby with two sitting areas, a rooftop terrace, laundry, storage, bike room, and a parking garage, plus 24-hour doorman service and a live-in super. As a cond-op, Turtle Bay Towers combines all the attraction of a graceful prewar property with the flexibility of a condo: no formal board approval, an open sublet policy and pied-a-terres allowed. With a venerable history dating back to New Amsterdam, Turtle Bay is the most tranquil corner of Midtown Manhattan, known for its quiet tree-lined streets and beautiful green spaces. United Nations Plaza is just down the street, while Grand Central Station is a few blocks in the other direction and all the appeal of living in the heart of Manhattan is moments away.
