Property Details

Hi, I am posting about a lease takeover/assignment for unit 14G in 685 First Avenue starting 1/1/23 and ending 11/30/23 - 11 months. Apartment can be made available as soon as 12/19/22.

Rent of $3,995 if start date is 1/1/23 or sooner (will give $1,144 upfront).

You would be stepping into a "COVID deal", with a monthly rent of $4,099, including membership at the building's incredible gym/pool/club/movie theater for two people. These units (K and G line) are currently on the market for roughly $5,300+ (take a look on StreetEasy). This rent is ~$900 per month lower than the cheapest studio being offered in the building currently.

Any interested candidates will take over the lease directly from the building and be a normal renter like anyone else in the building.

Apartment will be delivered as is but with no furniture etc.

Please reach out quickly if interested! I am not taking any sort of fee etc. or asking any more than the stated rent of the lease, I just want to get this done asap.

Happy to send walk thru videos, an interactive 3D tour etc. and/or schedule a showing.

Here is a description of the unit:
Enormous one bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, laundry-in-unit and first-class amenities!

Unit faces the city; you can see the Chrysler building out of the bedroom and living room.

This lavish one bedroom home boasts 900 sqft of luxury with floor-to-ceiling windows, white oak flooring, and only the highest quality materials flowing from one large space to the next. The kitchen was meticulously hand-crafted with custom white Italian lacquered cabinets, complemented by a clean tile backsplash, Caesarstone quartz counters, and high-end stainless-steel appliances, including a dishwasher.

The oak flooring perfectly contrasts the light wall hues and sunlight filling the open-concept living and dining room. The dining area is large enough for a long table creating a banquette style option for larger, more formal dinner parties, as well as a lounge area, creating a comfortable and relaxing environment for guests; a perfect blend of functionality and elegance.

The perfect combination floor-to-ceiling windows, natural light, and elegant finishes create a sophisticated bedroom oasis. The marble-clad bathroom features a sweeping quartz-counter, polished silver hardware and a deep soaking tub.

Additional amenities residents can enjoy within this apartment include an in-unit washer and dryer, dedicated lighting systems that can be controlled in each room to create a different experience for all who enter, numerous storage options, and multi-zoned heating and cooling system.

The prestigious Murray Hill neighborhood, located blocks from the Empire State Building and the shores of the East River, is filled with bespoke homes, townhomes, and high-rise buildings, making it one of the most coveted neighborhoods in all of New York City. Surrounded by beautiful skyline views, filled with bright lights and a bustling variety of food, entertainment, and culture, as well as many historical cultural points, Murray Hill combines rich history with modern progression. Impressive mid-century architecture and blooming florals dot these busy streets filled with local coffee shops, bakeries, and famed restaurants.

Along the famed streets of Murray Hill, you will find 685 First Avenue, home of luxury, opulence, and a higher standard of living with a 24/7 concierge service, a 70ft glass-enclosed indoor pool, steam room and sauna, fitness center with a private training studio, billiards and games lounge, catering kitchen, private dining screening room, children’s playroom, and an on-site valet parking garage.
