FirstService Residential Tapped to Manage One United Nations Park

FirstService Residential has been appointed manager for One United Nations Park, an ultra-luxury residential tower in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan. Owned by GO Partners, the property at 685 First Ave. contains 148 jewel box condominiums, 408 rental units, more than 15,000 square feet of amenities and ground-floor retail. 

“The multifamily rental sector in New York City is more competitive than ever before, forcing property owners and developers to consider new services and amenities that position their building above similar assets,” said Calynne Oyolokor, SVP of FirstService Residential’s multifamily rental division. “The homes at One United Nations Park offer a thoughtful collection of smart home technologies that function as an attractive, in-unit amenity, and are one of the most appealing selling points for realtors and prospective residents.” 

Designed by Meier Partners, a Pritzker Prize-awarded architecture studio, One United Nations Park rises 42 stories above the East River waterfront.
