NEW YORK - The Waldorf Astoria is one of New York's most famous and maybe even more infamous landmarks. The original 13-story hotel opened in March 1893 on Fifth Avenue, now the site of the Empire State Building. The current iteration opened on Park Avenue in 1931, where it has stood for nearly 90 years as New York’s largest privately-owned landmarked building.
The glamorous New York City hotel has been closed since 2017 when Chinese insurer Dajia began thorough renovations of the building.
Now, well into 2020, the property is being transformed into a one-of-a-kind luxury hotel and residences with modern amenities that will take your breath away.
The developer behind the renovation of the historic hotel opened up sales of the building's condo units Wednesday.
There are more than 375 units available, including studios, four-bedroom homes, and penthouses. Many of them feature unique floorplans. Prices start at $1.7 million.
