Though it’s been a while, 807 Park Avenue served as Sean P. Diddy Combs' “little” Manhattan mansion before he sold it to Aion Partners for $14 million in 2004.

The Durst Organization, the developer, apparently feels more than comfy on the block between 11th and 12th Avenues, bounded by 57th and 58th Streets.

Durst continued next to the Helena with New York City’s very first pyramid—or, as the designer likes to call it, a tetrahedron. It is nearing completion and should open its doors with 709 rental units sometime this year.
