The seventeen-story building plus penthouse was constructed by the Fisher Brothers developers in 1960. The Park V shares its Fifth Avenue block with the Sherry Netherland and the Pierre Hotels on the north and south sides. The year the building opened, the New York Times described it as containing sixty-six "mansions," and described it as being "the world's most luxurious multiple dwelling". Among the luxury details considered remarkable in that era where the presence of telephone outlets in every room and special windows designed to keep out noise. The entire building was in modern style unlike the traditional Renaissance and Georgian styles of older buildings in the neighborhood. Directly across from Central Park the location is one of the most desirable in New York City.
