Development Summary
From 685 First Avenue:

685 First Avenue is an unprecedented interplay of black and light—a balance that reflects the architecture's bold exterior and luminous interiors.

A layered black glass form that rises 460 feet above First Avenue, between East 39th and East 40th Streets, 685 First Avenue lies just south of the United Nations Headquarters.

The black glass itself was carefully sourced to provide the crispest, clearest and warmest effect. Striking and austere, it offers superior performance and the smoothest surface quality available on the international market.

The glass provides a clear view of the city from the interior, with abundant natural light streaming into each residence, while maintaining a consistent black exterior. Residents occupy light-filled spaces, with many residences offering unobstructed views.

Features & Finishes
Meticulously designed, 148 one-to-four bedroom condominium residences ascend from the 28th floor. Rooms are found in classic combination of white, pale gray and earth tones that are complemented by refined surfaces of wood, stone and glass. Living rooms and bedrooms are configured to maximize the outstanding views.

From within 685 First Avenue, the glass admits light while obscuring visibility from the outside. The overall aesthetic is simple, bright and pure, with an elevated level of detail and finishes. Corridors draw the eye to the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Generous, airy layouts feature wide plank floors of white oak and solid core wood interior doors.

Kitchens appointed in white marble and natural stone have Gaggenau appliances clad in custom-crafted Italian white lacquer. Ceilings rise more than nine feet, and soar up to 20 feet in select duplexes. Every residence features radiant wood floors.

Built-in Crestron home automation systems offers residents a full package of smart home capabilities. Touchscreens let residents customize and control lighting, motorized window shades, and climate. Residents will also have the ability to access controls through any iOS or Android device. Pre-wiring is also included to make it easy to add speakers and televisions for integrated audio/video control.

All duplexes feature free-standing tubs, custom staircase with solid wood treads and sweeping views. Select duplex residences feature double height great room spaces, expansive terraces, and are serviced by private elevators.

685 First Avenue offers impressive views of the dynamic contours of the city that never sleeps. At sunrise, throughout the day and as the sun sets, the changing urban landscape provides a striking backdrop to daily life.
