About The Belaire, 524 East 72nd Street

This 50-story condominium tower is one of the most attractive on the Upper East Side.

Designed by Frank Williams and Associates for a development team headed by William Zeckendorf Jr., the tower's red-brick façade is a nicely modeled slab, vaguely reminiscent of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Its top culminates in several setbacks that give it a distinct and asymmetrical look.

Completed in 1988, this offers the most unobstructed views to the south of the group of high-rise towers that sprung up in the immediate vicinity following the move of Sotheby's, the auction house, from Madison Avenue to an unattractive warehouse-like structure at the York Avenue corner of this block. Sotheby's subsequently planned to erect a very large, medium-size tower on its avenue site designed by architect Michael Graves, but then abandoned the project in favor of a move to the redevelopment of the New York Coliseum at Columbus Circle. This 50-story condominium tower is one of the most attractive on the Upper East Side.
