United Nations Headquarters in Manhattan

About the Building

Located at 685 First Avenue in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Midtown East Manhattan, One UN Park is a brand-new glass tower offering upscale amenities and a convenient location. It was completed in 2019 and designed by respected architects Richard Meier and Partners. The 43-story building features 148 fully automated one—to four-bedroom Manhattan condos for sale, which occupy 16 floors, starting at 28.

Towering 460 feet above the streets of Manhattan, the building is made of layered black glass, which lets in plenty of natural light while maintaining a bold exterior. One United Nation Park's developers put great care into sourcing the glass to strike the perfect balance between privacy and transparency.

Other striking architectural features include its many thoughtfully placed balconies, canopies, and corners, as well as a cut-out on the 27th and 28th floors. The building was even designed with Feng-Shui principles in mind, and the size, geometry, and building materials were carefully selected to promote a perfectly balanced home life. Its strategic position just south of the United Nations Headquarters between East 39th and East 40th Streets also lends an air of diplomacy and sophistication. 

One Un Park is home to some of the best new condos in New York. Homes feature proportional interiors designed and built-in smart home capabilities to support a busy modern lifestyle. Like many new condos in NYC, they feature a minimalist design with high ceilings, open-concept layouts, and high-end appliances. 

Each residence also features impressive views of both the city skyline and the East River, with living rooms and bedrooms designed to maximize exposure to natural light. Anyone searching for new Midtown Manhattan condos for sale that offer a great balance of luxury and practicality will love One UN Park.

The Neighborhood

One UN Park also offers a superb location boasting both convenience and tranquility. It's located in Murray Hill, one of Manhattan's most desirable neighborhoods. Aside from just the United Nations Headquarters, the building is also in the vicinity of some of NYC's top attractions including the Empire State Building, Bryant Park, and Times Square.

For transportation, residents have easy access to Grand Central Station, water taxis, and even a heliport on 34th Street. The building is surrounded by parks and green spaces, including the East River Esplanade, St. Vartan Park, and Robert Moses Playground. It's also centrally located near some of Manhattan's most iconic restaurants, including the famous Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse and The Campbell cocktail bar at Grand Central.

However, despite its convenient location, First Avenue apartments tend to be slightly secluded and quieter than other parts of the city. You'll find more office buildings and condos in Midtown than rowdy, late-night establishments. Plus, being close to the UN Headquarters brings an added level of security. As a result, One United Nations Park condos offer all the best aspects of living in Manhattan without the annoyances.
