CurbedApril 01, 2013A relaunch one year ago has done 1280 Fifth Avenue some good. Now branded One Museum Mile, the 113-condo unit on 110th Street, which sits atop the Museum for African Art, passed the 50-percent-sold mark in February. And last week, when 3BR/3BA apartment 11B sold for $3.565 million, it set a new record for the neighborhood of $2,030 per square foot. (Streeteasy and others label the area "Upper Carnegie Hill," but we're insisting that it's East Harlem.)
After miscalculations about the museum's opening timeline and some other delays, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed One Museum Mile is poised to push Harlem even further into gentrification territory.
The most compelling features of the 1,756-square-foot record-setting apartment in question are the views from both the interiors and a huge wraparound terrace, which look out onto the expanse of Central Park from its northeastern corner. The bedrooms are also generously sized compared with the living areas. If the vistas aren't enough of the great urban outdoors, 1280 Fifth also has a roof deck with a pool, plus other amenities like a 24/7 concierge, a gym, a kids' playroom, a teens' game room, a bike room, and parking.
