Overview

This handsome, red--brick, 20-story condominium tower was erected in 1985 and has 80 apartments.

Designed by Rothzeid, Kaiserman, Thomson & Bee, it is one of the tallest buildings in the West Village and has many apartments with sweeping vistas of the Hudson River waterfront.

It was built two years before Memphis Uptown at 303 East 60th Street, which is known now as Evans View and was designed by Abraham Rothenberg and Gruzen Sampton Steinglass. The uptown building is quite slender with a very attractive red-topped rooftop water tank enclosure and overlooks the Manhattan approach to the Queensborough Bridge and the tram to Roosevelt Island.

This tower is more sedate but quite attractive with many rounded corner balconies and an impressive, landscaped entrance. It has discrete air-conditioners, a doorman and a garage.

This section of the West Village has many very charming streets of townhouses and many nice restaurants and boutiques. Its Washington Street location is one block from the waterfront on West Street and there is cross-town bus service nearby on West 10th Street and Christopher Streets. A subway station is six blocks away at Sheridan Square.
