Once home to a beloved Manhattan music school, Minuet sits at the crossroads of Sutton Place and Turtle Bay. This beautifully composed architectural feat by Issac & Stern Architects pays homage to the adjacent Rockefeller Guest House. Minuet’s travertine and oak paneled lobby celebrates the beautiful stone surrounding the iconic courtyard pond and paneling found in the guestrooms, while the lush greenery on the rooftop recreates the serene ”urban oasis” that put the landmark property on the map. Minuet’s façade evokes the celebrated limestone that has encapsulated the finest apartment houses of Manhattan’s east side for over a century. Cylindrical metal spandrels and vertical mullions honor not only to the neighboring modernist masterpiece, but also to other icons of mid century design including the nearby Seagram Building, Lever House, and many Emery Roth buildings that line Midtown East. Step inside Minuet and discover a captivating collection of classically modern residences ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, plus an exceptional maisonette and one-of-a-kind penthouse. Minuet’s boutique entrance on the beautiful and tree lined East 52nd Street is surrounded by cultural landmarks, green parks, and fine dining establishments, offering an ideal setting to redefine your city rhythm.
