256 Fifth Avenue is a six story building with 12,960 square feet on a plot of 24’8” by 100’. The building, constructed in 1893, has a beautifully intricate terra cotta façade, which the American Institute of Architects describes in their guide to New York City as an example of architectural “virtuosity.” The buildings systems have been carefully maintained and all required fillings and permits are current.

There are approximately 11,700 square feet of additional development rights; however, as the building is within the Madison Square North Historic District only a portion may ultimately be approved for development by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. 256 Fifth Avenue will always be a link equal in style from a gilded age of another century to the current wave of new development.
