A Family Friendly Environment!

Home  About Us  Owner's LogIn   

With breathtaking views of the East River, and overlooking the United Nations, Dag Hammarskjold Tower is one of the most desirable condominiums in mid-town Manhattan. The 43 story building has approximately 233 units that range from studio to four bedrooms. Residents are a reflection of the United Nations.

The amenities include a landscaped public garden and a residents' only private garden; an indoor swimming pool on the 43rd floor; health club; sauna/steam room; the penthouse Skyline Lounge (residents' only lounge and party room); and a children's playroom. We also have around-the-clock concierges, doormen, video security, extensive service staff, storage space, bicycle room, large laundry room, and on-site garage. We now have free WiFi in the lobby, gym, pool, and pool terrace.


This condominium building was designed by Gruzen & Partners for R. H. Sanbar and completed in 1984.

"An understated tower with simple, faceted balconies, all built of preassembled brick panels, the joints of which give another design rhythm to the façade," noted Elliot Willensky and Norval White in the 1988 book, "The A.I.A. Guide to New York City," (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich).

The solid balconies are attractive, but the building's real virtues lie in its subtle massing of thin setbacks and its corner entrance. The building's corner is two-tone with its central portion a darker color than the sides. The center portion rises to a point, reminiscent of the prow of a ship.

This building is very elegant like a man in a well-tailored suit from Saville Row.
