Plaza 400 is a premier full service cooperative and one of Sutton Place’s more elegant buildings. Built in 1968 by architect Philip Birnbaum and Associates with 627 residences, Plaza 400 was converted to a cooperative in January 1981. The well-designed building has an impressive driveway with portico and landscaped gardens. Apartments are spacious with abundant closet space, balconies and city and river views.

The co-op is self-managed with both a resident superintendent and assistant superintendent. There are 24-hour doormen, a concierge desk, a staffed security entrance and a staffed package room. The monthly maintenance includes utilities, central air-conditioning and heating. Pied-a-terre owners are welcome. Please note, there is a no pet policy.

Plaza 400 is located on a beautiful tree lined street and is convenient to shopping, restaurants, theatres, museums, the East River Esplanade and Central Park.

Additional amenities: Roof top heated outdoor pool, resident’s lounge/events room, children’s playroom and children events, state of the art fitness center, bike room and storage units and a 24-hour attended on-site garage with reduced fees for residents.
