Manhattan is full of real estate gems, and this mansion is one of them. 9-11 W 54th St. is a 50 foot wide, 24,000 square foot structure, just off of 5th Avenue.
Built in 1945, the neo-Georgian residence is made of limestone and brick and was designed by the architectural firm McKim, Mead, and White. They were also responsible for the New York Public Library and the University Club.
A five-story structure, there is an additional sixth story with 13-foot ceilings that houses mechanical. Most recently the building housed the US Trust Company, but it could be used as a home, embassy, office, gallery, club or retail space.
