47 East 91st Street
Tamarkin Co. purchased the air-rights above an existing one-story Citibank in Carnegie Hill to construct a new apartment tower above the operating bank. The resulting ten-story, 45,000 square foot building is composed of seven full-floor, 4,000 square foot apartments and a 6,000 square foot duplex penthouse rising above the single-story base. Tamarkin Architecture was commissioned to design the building.
The architects created an elegantly composed exterior that is a modern interpretation of the classic Upper East Side apartment houses that line Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue. Buff-colored sand-cast bricks are used for the primary facades with rusticated Indiana limestone detailing at the base and steel casement windows are used throughout. Richly crafted interiors include white-oak herringbone floors, plaster moldings and oil-rubbed bronze hardware.
47 East 91st Street is the first new residential building to be approved by the New York City Landmarks Commission in Carnegie Hill in over 50 years. The finished spaces commanded the highest-ever per-square-foot prices for the neighborhood.
