Gloriously restored to pristine condition, The Octagon is a building unlike any in Manhattan. And now 500 rental residential units flank the landmark eight-sided rotunda in two dramatic new wings. Fourteen stories tall, faced with finely dressed gray stone to match the blue-gray schist of the rotunda itself, the building's classic lines evoke a Florentine grandeur, at once graceful and monumental.

The Octagon is as sumptuous to live in as it is to look at. Studio and 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom apartments let you take luxury for granted. High-speed internet and cable. Hardwood floors. Ceramic tiled kitchens with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. And best of all, floor-to-ceiling windows where the East Side skyline hangs in your living room like a colossal urban fresco. In designing and outfitting The Octagon apartments we followed a simple, unbeatable formula: state-of-the-art amenities plus out-of-this-world views.
