OFFICIAL x Alexander Team is pleased to present 281 Park Avenue South,
a landmark property restored to its 19th century grandeur and newly
modernized to 21st century museum-quality standards. An important
building in the history of American architecture, its steel frame and carved
stone facade made it an engineering marvel of its time.
Its location at the southeast corner of Park Avenue South and East 22nd
Street places it in the heart of Manhattan at the nexus of three of New
York’s most iconic neighborhoods: Madison Square, Gramercy Park, and
281 Park Avenue South is more akin to a priceless artwork than to a real
estate asset. An inimitable character of New York City history and pop
culture lore, this is truly a unique ownership opportunity with global appeal
