Review of 175 West 95th Street by Carter Horsley

An affiliate of the Starrett Corporation converted the Axton rental apartment building at 175 West 95th Street to a condominium in 2015.

The 28-story tower was erected as part of the Mitchell-Lama program that provided affordable housing to moderate- and middle-income families in 1971.  It is also known as 176 West 96th Street and 725 Amsterdam Avenue.

It has 229 residential condominium units and three commercial condominiums.
