In December 2011, New Valley Realty, HFZ Capital Group, and Vornado Realty Trust acquired 11 East 68th Street with plans to reposition the property to take its place among Manhattan’s most coveted ultra-luxury condominium residences. Built in 1913 by Herbert Lucas in Beaux-Arts Revival Style, The Marquand is a New York City landmark, originally named for the renowned American Financier Henry Gordon Marquand. The Marquand is distinguished by its two separate wings and is located on Madison Avenue and 68th Street along Central Park on Manhattan’s prestigious Upper East Side.
Award-winning architects and interior designers Shelton, Mindel & Associates created full floor three to six bedroom residences, which boast expansive living rooms ranging up to sixty-five feet in width, offering a sprawling grandeur rarely seen in modern construction, with natural light pouring in through distinct bay windows. Most living rooms are outfitted with a wood burning fireplace sculpted from Travertine marble. Triplex penthouses are located the east and west wings of the building and include extensive outdoor space. Now richly renewed at the highest level, the building marries the elegance and refinement of gracious prewar space with every amenity and convenience of contemporary living. Ground floor retail is located on Madison Avenue and is occupied by high-end luxury brands.
