505 Fifth Avenue
Designed by Polhemus & Coffin, 232 Madison Avenue sits on the site of one of the last standing mansions of Murray Hill. As more tall business buildings cast their shadows on the home Helen Hartley Jenkins inherited from her father, multi-millionaire Marcellus Hartley in 1902, she finally decided to sell, making way for the construction of the 16-story building. The targeted tenants at the time the building was completed included firms related to the silk industry, which later gave way to the Madman era in the 1950s.
The building design creates a neo-gothic façade, combining Gothic and Art Deco influences with notable architectural details of the exterior featuring a two-story stone base, large windows, and columns topped with medieval capitals. Owned by Princeton International Properties, the building underwent renovations in 2009 to painstakingly reveal the building’s unusual Deco-Gothic blend, complemented beautifully by thoughtful interior modernizations. Updated windows, elevators, and hallways complete the look of the transformation, and the building’s slight height doesn’t take away from views of the Empire State Building and Madison Avenue.
Close to exclusive Manhattan hotels such as The Langham on Fifth, Kitano and The William, 232 Madison holds its place among the elite and trendy. Not far from Heralds Square and Grand Central Station, notable landmarks such as the Morgan Library and Museum and friendly local pubs and eateries serving up comfort foods and drinks, like Slattery’s and Peter Dillons 36th, make 232 Madison perfectly situated for up-and-coming businesses.
There is a total of 115,945 square feet of office space available in The Murray Hill Building.
