Marking a new focal point on Manhattan’s celebrated Museum Mile — home to iconic cultural institutions like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of the City of New York — is a distinctively designed limestone structure: One Museum Mile.
Located at 1280 Fifth Avenue and directly across from Central Park, One Museum Mile’s classic design and limestone relief façade are credited to legendary architect Robert A.M. Stern, who collaborated with Andre Kikoski Architect PLLC and SLCE Architects to create a structure which unifies this luxury condominium with the future home of the Museum for African Art, located in the building’s base.
The video above features an exclusive interview with Stern, who touches on Upper Fifth Avenue’s history and attractions, which influenced the design of One Museum Mile. Referencing his approach to “make an icon out of the museum and a very important neighbor out of the apartment building,” Stern has brought a quality of detail and charm that many new residential developments lack.
In a neighborhood rich with architectural gems, One Museum Mile compliments Fifth Avenue rather than competing with it. One Museum Mile offers a 24-hour full-service concierge, on-site parking, a landscaped roof terrace with outdoor pool, residents’ lounge with fireplace, fitness center with terrace, media lounge, children’s playroom, bicycle room and more.
