Rosario Candela was a master architect of luxury co-op apartment building planning and design. A Sicilian immigrant who graduated from Columbia Architecture School in 1915, his co-op buildings became the most coveted Manhattan addresses for the city’s wealthiest families. Replacing mansions along Fifth and Park Avenues, the luxury apartments exemplified the opulence and grandeur of the Gilded Age. John D Rockefeller’s 20,000 square foot triplex at 740 Park Avenue had 37 rooms with grand foyers the size of ballrooms and 960 Park Avenue was described as 12 mansions built one-on-top of each other. Candela’s portfolio of co-op buildings redefined luxury living in the 20s and remain prized possessions today.
