The architect who designed 207 East 57th Street in 2005 is putting his own condo in the building on the market.

Ismael Leyva’s three-bedroom unit is listed for $4.79 million, the New York Post reported. The Corcoran Group’s Blu Toth has the listing.

Leyva bought the apartment for $3.91 million in 2014. The unit on the 30th floor spans nearly 1,800 square feet. It comes with Venetian plaster and a chef’s kitchen custom-made in Vienna.

The Mexican-American architect designed both the building and the interiors. The building’s amenities include a 24-hour concierge, a gym, a playroom, an outdoor garden patio and storage.

Leyva is known for designing a number of the city’s new, glassy condo towers. That includes the Charles, the Greenpoint and 196 Orchard.

Leyva sold his home at 353 Central Park West in 2013 for $7.55 million. [NYP] — Meenal Vamburkar
