As inventory in NYC continues to experience record lows, property hunters remain on the hunt. For those looking for room to spread out, The Corinthian, a condominium building located at 330 East 38th Street in Murray Hill offers space and much more.
Having personally lived in the building and worked with clients there, I know this building first hand and really love it.
The 57-floor, 817-unit condo was built in 1989. Its fluted towers are unusual compared to the typical box-shaped buildings of that time period and perfectly suited to great apartment layouts; while the bay windows are perfect to take in the 360-degree views.
This is an established white-glove 24-hour full service doorman building with valet service and 24-hour garage. The building is impeccably managed by Rose Associates with management representative on the premises as well as a building superintendent. There is a large staff of doormen, porters and handymen at one’s service.
The building has something for everyone: Apartment inventory ranges from approx 500-600 sq. ft. studios to 1700+ sq. ft. (sometimes even as big as 3,000+ sq. ft.!) three-bedrooms with many apartments having one or multiple balconies. There is a wide variety of layouts available to suit most needs.
This building also allows rentals. The current average sale price per square foot is $1,467.00 and the average rental price per square foot is $55.00.
While many attractive and highly publicized new building projects hitting the market feature incomparable amenities, 330 East 38th Street continues to renovate and innovate with highly coveted modern conveniences. Examples include: a fourth-floor common area center offering a large new laundry room; an enclosed 50-foot heated indoor pool, sauna and steam rooms; running track; multi-tiered outdoor sundeck, gym, yoga studio; and children’s playroom and party room with kitchen.

At the building’s entrance there’s a private driveway for easy off-street loading and unloading ,as well as some rare peaceful elements in the middle of a frenetic city– a semicircular cascading waterfall fountain and bronze sculpture that has appeared in a number of movies.
Murray Hill known for its rows of brownstones and pre-war buildings mixed with some contemporary development as you walk East. The convenience of this buildings’ location is often overlooked by perspective buyers who believe the building is too far East, but residents know better.Within minutes of walking from 330 East 38th Street you are in midtown, near Grand Central, Metro North and many subway lines. The nearby Midtown Tunnel provides quick access out East and to the Airports.
