How was this building rated?

This large, gray-brick apartment house at 235 West 75th Street occupies the entire Broadway frontage between 75th and 76th Streets and is one of the handsomest apartment complexes on the Upper West Side.

It was built in 1901 by William Waldorf, son of John Jacob Astor 2nd and the builder of the Waldorf section of the old Waldorf-Astoria Hotel that stood on the present site of the Empire State Building.

Mr. Astor built the two 8-story buildings at the south end of the Broadway frontage to designs by Clinton & Russell.  The third, 12-story wing was erected in 1913 and was designed in compatible style by Peabody, Wilson & Brown. 

The building was subsequently acquired by HFZ Capital Group of which Ziel Feldman is a principal and he planned to convert its 199 rental apartments to 100 condominium units in 2015.

Pembroke & Ives is the interior designer.
