241 Fifth Avenue

Originally known as 239-241 Fifth Avenue and formerly the site of the Fifth Avenue Bazaar, a singularly tacky Po-Mo horror, 241 Fifth Avenue is one of the first new condominium buildings in MoMad and the first purpose-built residential structure north of 106-108 Fifth Avenue.

Designed by ODA Architects and completed in 2014, the building shares 106-108 Fifth’s fault of being perhaps a shade too eager to fade into the background, although the treatment overall is crisp.

Penthouse apartments at 241 Fifth Avenue evidently have views of both the Empire State Building (six blocks north) and the World Trade Center (a mile and a half away).
