Top 10 Midtown East Condo Buildings

The Top 10 Midtown East condos are some of the most prestigious in the city because of their prime locations. Trump Tower, Olympic Tower and the Galleria at 117 East 57th Street all took advantage of new zoning provisions aimed at promoting mixed-use skyscrapers.

#1 - Trump Tower, 721 Fifth Avenue

This stunning, bold and brassy, 58-story, mixed-use tower has 256 condominium apartments including one for its developer, Donald Trump.


  • Nineteen apartments currently for sale from $1,995,000 to $11,000,000

#2 - Olympic Tower, 641 Fifth Avenue

This sleek, bronze-colored glass, mixed-use tower just to the north of St. Patrick's Cathedral added elegant modernity to Fifth Avenue.


  • Eleven apartments currently for sale from $2,595,000 to $35,000,000

#3 - One Beacon Court, 151 East 58th Street

Although it gestated for a very long time, this mixed-use tower designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli substantially upgraded the Lexington Avenue neighborhood and gave Le Cirque restaurant a dramatic new location in its elliptical courtyard.


  • Six apartments currently for sale from $6,999,999 to $57,500,000

#4 - Trump World Tower, 845 United Nations Plaza

Although he antagonized many neighbors by building substantially higher than the Secretariat Building at the nearby United Nations, Donald Trump's monolithic, bronze-colored tower is pretty awesome.


  • Ten apartments currently for sale from $1,475,000 to $11,000,000

#5 - 500 Park Tower, 500 Park Avenue

An extremely handsome addition to an elegant, modern landmark designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, this 40-story, asymmetrical tower designed by James Stewart Polshek is a very successful and bold mix of different facade textures.
