One block from the Guggenheim Museum and one block from Central Park and surrounded by the shops, restaurants, and cafes on Madison Avenue—it doesn’t get much more prime Upper East Side than this. But location is just one of the perks of this boutique luxury residential building. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, known for their modern interpretation of classic architecture, and Kelly Behun Studio, who brings just the right amount of modern whimsy to the 13 residence interiors.

Those familiar with Robert A.M. Stern will not be surprised to learn that his eponymous firm is behind this stunning new residential building that manages to feel classic and contemporary all at once. This, after all, is what Stern is famous for: a modern traditionalist approach to architecture, which emphasizes the surrounding architectural environment. Here, that means a handsome facade of limestone and heathered brick, a series of setbacks that allow for outdoor terraces, and a crown.

Known for its designer shops and designer-clad residents, the Upper East Side has an elegant and refined vibe that feels somewhat removed from the frenetic energy of Lower Manhattan. Here, you’ll find Museum Mile—the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the Neue Galerie, among others—and Central Park, as well as some of Manhattan’s most elite private schools.
Interiors by Kelly Behun Studio have the feel of private residences rather than a residential development. And that makes sense: there are just 13 units in total, ranging in size from a sprawling four-bedroom apartment to a nearly 7,000-square-foot duplex with unrivaled Central Park views. Refined materials throughout include chevron oak floors and Calacatta marble; appliances are top-of-the-line (of note: the made-to-order Lacanche ranges in the kitchens), and light fixtures add a sense of drama. As for the bathrooms? They run the gamut from serene and spa-like to decadently deluxe.
The thoughtful amenities at 1228 Madison Avenue focus on quality over quantity. The landscaped roof deck, for example, wrapping around the building’s crown, offers some of the most spectacular views of Central Park—specifically the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. And the fitness center and training studio designed by Kelly Behun Studio is as gorgeous as it is state-of-the-art. But the top amenity here is location, location, location in the heart of the Upper East Side, with Central Park as your backyard.

Kelly Behun on 1228 Madison Avenue, Her First Multi-Family Residential Project
The celebrated interior designer shares the details behind the project, from rare finishing touches to bespoke lighting fixtures designed by Behun herself.
The 100,000+ square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities include a stargazing observatory, an adults-only treehouse, and a rooftop garden (designed by acclaimed landscape architects West 8) that’s almost like a vertical city park. The sheer creativity and range of offerings are at least as distinctive as the tower’s impact on the city skyline.
