Casa 74, also known as 255 East 74th Street, is a 30-story, 87-apartment condominium building. It is located on East 74th Street, on the corner of Second Avenue, in the Upper East Side neighborhood in Manhattan, New York City.[2][3][4][5]

The building was designed by Hugh Hardy's H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture, and built in 2008.[6][7] It was developed by World-Wide Holdings Corporation.[8][9]

The building contains primarily three-to-five bedroom apartments, duplexes, and penthouses, with 10-foot (3.0 m) ceilings.[2][7][10][11] The largest apartments are 3,500-square-foot (330 m2).[12]

The lower floors of the building house a 42,000-square-foot (3,900 m2) Equinox gym.[2][7][13] The building includes a 2,400-square-foot (220 m2) children’s pavilion, and a private 1,500-square-foot (140 m2) garden.[2][14][15]

In 2008, apartments in the building sold for prices ranging up to $4,000-per-square-foot.[16][17][18] In 2009, a penthouse was purchased for $12.98 million.[19] Also in 2009, the developer rented out five of the building's apartments, at $13,000-per-month for three-bedroom apartments, and $18,000-per-month for a four-bedroom apartment.[20]

Poet John Giorno formerly lived at the address, when a small carriage house was located on the property, before the current building was built.[21][22]
