521 Park is a 12 story building that originally contained full-floor apartments, however, over the years a number of modifications of the original floor plans had been made & then subsequent combinations were created which has led to the current number of 27 apartments. A distinction of 521 Park Avenue is that it was one of only a few buildings originally built as a coop. The building was converted to a condominium in 1987. The project was honored with numerous international design awards including a gold medal for architecture from the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900. As a sole practitioner, Boring designed 521 Park Avenue & the building was completed in 1911. Up until this time Park Avenue was still a vast, open-air railroad yard with the train tracks from Grand Central extending north from 45th Street to almost 60th street.
