685 First Avenue is situated in a prominent Manhattan location on First Avenue between East 39th and East 40th Streets. Brought to you by the renowned Solow Building Company, this iconic 43-story tower is clad in black glass, a Solow trademark. The 43-story, 460-foot high residential tower is comprised of 408 studio-to-three-bedroom rental residences on the 3rd through 27th floor, including a collection of oversized loft residences. Located just south of the United Nations Headquarters along the East River, residences feature breathtaking views of New York City and the riverfront. One of its most distinguishing features - a clear glass cut-out on the 28th and 29th floors - lights up at night and is visible from across the river. The western facade is defined by a glass screen that provides privacy for residence balconies while still allowing abundant natural light to fill the interior space.
