Green is good, says the Fund for Park Avenue. On Tuesday night, a private cocktail reception was held in celebration of the non-profit organization at the 520 Park Avenue Sales Gallery.


For over seven decades, a tree lighting ceremony has taken place annually on Park Avenue, to not only beautify the streets, but also pay homage to the men and women who lost their lives defending our country during WWII. Today, with The Fund for Park Avenue and contributions received from individuals, foundations and corporations, this tradition still carries on. This year’s ceremony will be held on December 4th, at 6:30p.m. in front of the Brick Presbyterian Church.


Guests at 520 Park last week toured spacious model rooms representing 520 Park Avenue, a highly anticipated building slated to open its doors in early 2018. The 54-story limestone-clad tower is the third collaboration between Zeckendorf Development and architect Robert A.M. Stern, the team behind 15 Central Park West and 18 Gramercy Park.


Cocktails and conversation flowed smoothly throughout the evening. “As 520 Park Avenue rises into the skyline, I hope you will appreciate what we have been working on for the past 10 years. There was a recession, a hiccup, which gave us a little more time to refine the details,” said Stern during the reception. “The building draws from the past and provides to the present with apartments and amenities tailored to the 21st century way of life.” Before thanking everyone for coming, Stern noted the tower has 33 residences, and that some are still available.


Those in attendance included Barbara McLaughlin, Will Zeckendorf, Julia Cahill, Clay and Karen Tompkins, Martha and John Glass, Wally TurnerKonrad Keese, Filippa Edberg-Manuel, Ezra Nasser, Louis BuckworthGeorgina Schaeffer, Adam Brenner, Paula and Tom Burchill.
