With its unusual profile dictated by the 1929 Multiple Dwelling Act, this twin-towered luxury apartment building is one of four similar structures built on Central Park West during the 1930s. A 17-story main structure occupies a full city block while the towers add another ten stories of apartments above.

The building is decorated with classical details. Its limestone base is rusticated, cartouches appear above the entrance, and choragic temples cap each of its towers. Generously-scaled and well arranged apartments speak to the affluence of the residents.
