Construction is now complete on The Wales, a newly converted condominium property at 1295 Madison Avenue in the Carnegie Hill section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Led by owner-developer Adellco alongside Parisian design studio PINTO, the building features 21 homes and a modest collection of amenity spaces. The property is located at the corner of 92nd Street and Madison Avenue.
The century-old structure was once known as Hotel Wales and is revered by local preservationists for its ornate terracotta and limestone façade. The building’s location and historic prominence required the project team to seek approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) before any work can break ground. These approvals were achieved in April 2020.
