Lush Views of Central Park Frame a Rooftop Conversation About the Area’s History, Evolution and Offerings

New York, NY – Soaring above Central Park’s verdant landscape, One Museum Mile at 1280 Fifth Avenue– future home to the highly anticipated Museum for African Art – is grabbing headlines once again. Yesterday, between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m., the premier luxury residential development hosted members of the Foreign Press Association at an event titled “Discover Our Neighborhood.”

The evening kicked off with a walking tour led by historian Joyce Gold, who shared insight about the history of Upper Fifth and neighboring Central Park, as guests toured the park’s famed Conservatory Gardens and Harlem Meer. Later, the group returned to the exquisite 21-story structure, designed in part by noted architect, Robert A. M. Stern, for a panel discussion held on the building’s rooftop overlooking the northern end of Central Park.

With New York City’s skyline as a backdrop, expert panelists, including Gold, CORE managing director, Tom Postilio, and StreetEasy vice president of research, Sofia Song, discussed the history and evolution of the neighborhood, as well as trends in the local real estate market. Moderated by Katherine Clarke of The Real Deal, the event also allowed the audience to interact with the panel and ask questions.

“With condominiums and high-rise developments emerging rapidly in Upper Carnegie Hill and along Upper Fifth, there has been a tremendous uptick in foreign interest,” said Bruce Brickman, principal of real estate private equity firm, Brickman, the property’s developer. “The team at One Museum Mile is pleased to host and partake in a dialogue about this dynamic neighborhood and its attractive qualities.”

To conclude the night, guests were treated to a sumptuous cocktail reception at Red Rooster Harlem, comprising signature dishes by James Beard award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson.

"The event was a great success,” said Shaun Osher, co-founder and CEO of CORE, the building’s exclusive sales and marketing team. “Our international guests enjoyed the panel discussion and walked away with insight about why foreign buyers, in particular, have been drawn to this area.”

One Museum Mile offers studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes as well as penthouses ranging up to 2,118-square feet, which are available for immediate occupancy. The property also offers residences with outdoor terrace space.
